House panel passes bill requiring cash machines to connect to BIR servers


The House Ways and Means Committee has approved a bill mandating the creation of an electronic data interconnectivity between the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and the country’s businesses that use cash-register machines (CRM) or point-of-sales (POS) machines.

The bill may look good on paper but in practice, there are a number of things that needs to be considered. Plus this bill is borderline paranoia.
