Reconciliation of Collection through Authorized Agent Banks (AABs) Over-the-counter (OTC)
The BSC-CRDC Reconciliation Inquiry is a facility in the CBR System that allows the user to monitor tax revenue collections and remittances together with the discrepancies that may exist between them. This serves as a reconciliation tool, primarily for use by the RDOs/LTDOs/LTS and the Revenue Accounting Division (RAD). It assists them in identifying those AABs with discrepancies between the reported BCS-A and CRDCs for a particular collection period. It also provides assistance in evaluating the collection and remittance performance of the AABs.
The LRDPQAD/LTDO/RDO shall:
- Access the CBR BCS-CRDC Reconciliation Inquiry Screen;
- Validate collections in the CBR System and ensure that the BCS amount tallies with the CRDC (Annex 200-1.1);
- Request RAD to verify accuracy of the posted CRDC data and monitor RAD’s response to reconciliation queries;
- Prepares and submit report on collection reconciliation issues on the CRDC discrepancies to the Regional Collection Division/LTS; and
- Prepare and submit Report on Frequently Erring Banks to the CPD through the Regional Collection Division/LTS.
The RAD shall:
- Receive request from LTDPQAD/LTDO/RDO for verification of posted CRDC data;
- Coordinate with AAB-HO in reported discrepancies (Annex 200-1.2);
- Monitor AAB-HO response to reconciliation issues raised. In case the AAB-HO fails to respond, report erring banks to the CPD for the imposition of appropriate penalties for non-compliance;
- Receive AAB-HO response to reported discrepancies. In case of AAB-HO error, require the amendment of the CRDC and the remittance of collection; compute the corresponding penalties for late remittance (Annex 200-1.3) or the refund, if there is over remittance; and
- Notify LTDPQAD/LTDO/RDO on the accuracy of the posted CRDC and the amendment to the CRDC (Annexes 200-1.4 and 200-1.5), if any, based on the report(s) submitted by the AAB-HO.
The LTDPQAD/LTDO/RDO shall:
- Determine the possible causes of discrepancy between BCS and CRDC immediately upon receipt of confirmation by RAD on the accuracy of the posted CRDC data;
- Require AAB to submit amended CRDC or BCS, in case the discrepancy is due to wrong encoding of RDO code in the CRDC or the BCS;
- Coordinate with the concerned AAB branch, in case of erroneously encoded/reported collection date (e.g. one or more BCS were not included by the AAB-HO as part of the remittances for a particular collection date or collection was reported as the remittance for a different collection date), and inform RAD of such error for imposition of appropriate penalties;
- Require the AAB branch to remit the unremitted collections, in case of under-remittance of collections, and inform RAD of such omission for immediate issuance of demand notice to AAB-HO for remittance of the collection and imposition of appropriate penalties; and
- Require AAB branch to transmit an amended BCS, in case of over-remittance of collections, and inform the said AAB to request for refund if the amendment of the BCS was made after the lapse of the AAB’s float period.
