In the meantime that the quarantine guidelines in Metro Manila and nearby provinces may have been relaxed, PayMaya continues to provide citizens a safe and convenient option to pay for their bills – including government dues like BIR and SSS.
This comes as additional good news as an extension of tax filing and membership dues to June 15.
Taxpayers can comfortably pay for their BIR and SSS dues using their PayMaya accounts from
For BIR, convenience fees are waived when they pay using the Pay Bills section of the app, while they can get a chance to earn up to 100% cashback when they pay their fees using their PayMaya accounts via the SSS mobile app.
Apart from BIR and SSS, PayMaya has also enabled government agencies and units, including the PAG-IBIG Fund, Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC), the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), the National Home Mortgage Finance Corporation (NHMFC), and the city of Valenzuela, to accept card and e-wallet payments, as the country accelerates its digital efforts in light of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
PayMaya has also partnered with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) and the Land Transport Regulatory and Franchising Board (LTFRB) to equip public utility vehicles (PUVs) such as taxis, buses, and TNVS cars with cashless payments acceptance for commuters.
“We support the government’s efforts to fast track digitalization efforts for better delivery of public service. This is in line with increasing efficiencies in government services as the country moves towards the New Normal post-pandemic. We at PayMaya are excited to work with more national government agencies and local government units towards those same goals” said Orlando B. Vea, Founder, and CEO of PayMaya.
As Filipinos’ day-to-day lives and the economy have been reshaped by the pandemic, Vea said digital payments will become commonplace across all areas of life, making it imperative for more government agencies and local government units to offer cashless means as the primary option.
In addition to convenience and safety, shifting government transactions online also helps facilitate the delivery of more efficient and transparent service to the public, as the Anti-Red Tape Authority (ARTA) had recently pointed out.
