FIRB stands firm opposed to BPOs WFH setup
Apr 29, 2022
The Fiscal Incentives Review Board (FIRB) is not bowing down to pressure as the interagency body stood firm on its decision that the work-from-home (WFH) setup for registered information technology-business process outsourcing (IT-BPO) firms was only temporary.
In a statement on Thursday, April 28, Finance Assistant Secretary Juvy C. Danofrata said that FIRB had allowed the WFH setup for IT-BPO companies only as a time-bound temporary measure to address the “work constraints” at the height of the pandemic.
Danofrata explained that the FIRB needed to allow the WFH arrangement before given the strict lockdowns or mobility restrictions imposed nationwide to contain the spread of the Covid-19 infection.
