What You Need to Know About the New BIR 1905 Updating of Registration

• A Guide to Changing Your BIR “Ask for the Receipt” Form from Orange to Green

The new BIR 1905 updating of registration from orange color to green color is a process that involves changing the color of the BIR “Ask for the Receipt” form from orange to green.

This form is a proof of registration that every taxpayer must display in their place of business or office.

The BIR has issued a memorandum circular that requires all taxpayers to update their registration information and replace their orange forms with green ones before September 15, 2023..

The purpose of this update is to streamline the registration process and enhance the monitoring and enforcement of tax compliance.

To update your registration from orange to green, you need to accomplish and submit the BIR Form 1905 – Application for Registration Information Update for Updating / Cancellation of Registration / Cancellation of TIN / New Copy of TIN Card / New Copy of Certificate of Registration.

You also need to submit the following documentary requirements²:

  • BIR Form S 1905 – Registration Update Sheet
  • Photocopy of your valid government ID with your signature affixed three times
  • Your orange BIR “Ask for the Receipt” form

You need to submit these documents to your respective Revenue District Office (RDO) where you are currently registered. If you are transferring to another RDO, you need to secure a clearance from your old RDO and submit it to your new RDO. After processing, you will receive the new green form that you need to display in your place of business or office.
