Under Section 3 thereof, the following institutions shall be covered by the preferential corporate income tax (CIT) rate of 10%, provided that the rate of 1% shall apply beginning 1 July 2020 until 30 June 2023, as imposed under Section 27(B) of the Tax Code, as amended:

  • Proprietary educational institutions.
  • Hospitals that are non-profit.
  • Non-stock, non-profit educational institutions whose net income or assets accrue/inure to or benefit any member or specific person.

After 30 June 2023, the rate shall revert to the preferential CIT rate of 10%. 

Regular CIT of 25% shall be imposed on the entire taxable income of the above-mentioned institutions if their gross income from unrelated trade, business, or other activity exceeds 50% of the total gross income they derived from all sources.
