    your right from what you read… however, you have to be approved first by the DOE to be able to import tax free and the equipment you import has to be used at your business premises (eg, your power plant). There seems to be no provision for it to be leased to other premises.

    The reason I post this is I had the same idea in the NCR area and I was told it would not ‘meet the requirements’.

    However, the import tax on solar equipment is only 5%, and you can offset the VAT against what you receive in payments in your leasing agreements. It’s a great idea if you have the capital to buy that volume of panels/batteries in the first place…

    Uhm and why is that CAMELCO wont abide with RA9513? That is one reason as well for consumers to opt for the use of solar panels.

      Sorry ice, you are sending automated comments to blogs. Read again your comment and you will discover that your two sentences are contradicting. We removed your advertisement although we promote solar energy. get in contact with us.

  3. We are now thinking about ordering a thousand solar panels, a thousand batteries and inverters, and several thousand LED bulbs. A leasing scenario is being calculated. If we understand right what is written in R.A. 9513, importation of renewable energy equipment is exempt from importation tax and VAT.

    I would just like to quote, careful too, ive just found out that BOC is still charging much for importation of any products or materials for the use of Solar Panels. The quotation of 1 20ft container was charged for P600,000. So i doubt that it will be tax and vat exempt. FYI

      I’m just starting in this industry so i hope you’ll bare with me. What were the equipments inside the 20ft container that costs P600,000? it is from China-Mla?

        The big problem is Philippines customs. Depending on the officer in charge to control your container, you either say thank you with a bright smile or you pay PHP 600’000.
        And frankly, start an administrative inquiry here in RP is only possible for big companies with their own legal department.
