2015 STAMP PROGRAM (Tentative)


2015 VAT Surcharges.  Starting February 4, all philatelic items, such as Souvenir Sheets, FDC envelopes, souvenir folders, presentation frames, etc. will have a 12% VAT (Value Added Tax) added to the price, with only stamps exempted. For example, the Pope Visit B/4 is still P40 (no VAT) but the P200 Coinage SS will now be P224 (P200 + P24 for the 12% VAT added). For the B/4 FDC, it will now be P48.96 (P40 for the B/4 stamps plus P8 for the envelope + P0.96 for the 12% VAT on the envelope). For the Coinage SS FDC, it will now be P336 (P200 plus P24 for the 12% VAT on the SS, plus P100 + P12 for the 12% VAT on the envelope).   All previously issued Souvenir Sheets and FDC envelopes that are still available for sale will be levied the same 12% VAT surcharge.
