MFBR lawyers and associates care!

In light of the constantly changing social and economic landscape in the world due to COVID-19, everyone at Mallari Fiel Brillante Ronquillo has taken steps to make good our steadfast commitment to serve our clients and our communities.

To this end, we designed a new business model incorporating the traditional “brick and mortar” and “virtual” law offices. This new model is to achieve the continuity of rendering our legal and business consultancy services to clients and friends, and the immediate implementation of our crisis management and business transformation activities.

Thus, we’re glad to announce that for every fortnight, half of our team will be physically present at our offices from Monday thru Friday, 8:00am to 3:00pm. Clients and our friends can reach us through our office phones and online platforms (website, emails, Facebook, LinkedIn, Zoom, etc.). And to ensure the health and safety of our staff, they have the option to be housed in the Firm’s private residence or shuttled back and forth using the company’s private vehicle. Safety protocols are also observed at our offices.

Finally, our team has prepared a series of materials around the impact of COVID-19 and related considerations. Please take time to view our sample articles and research published in our website. A complete listing and discussion of these articles are available in our newsletter to be distributed to our esteemed clients.

Should you have questions, please reach out to our Office Manager, Argie Macawile, at +632 86953395, +63977 8502357; or email our Managing Partner, Atty. Rob Mallari, at and

On 27 March 2020, The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued Revenue Regulation No. 7-2020 (RR No.7-2020) to implement the extension for the filing and submission of documents and/or returns and the payment of taxes.

Under Section 4 of RR No. 7-2020, the Commissioner of Internal Revenue may further extend the statutory deadlines if the circumstances so warrant. Since the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) was extended until 30 April 2020, the BIR, correspondingly issued Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 39-2020 (RMC No. 39-2020) on 7 April 2020 and Revenue Regulation 10-2020 (RR No. 10-2020) on 10 April 2020, respectively, to further extend the due dates of submission and filing of certain documents and/or Tax returns.

RMC No. 39-2020 provided for further extension for a period of fifteen (15) calendar days except for those extension where the due date are reckoned from the lifting of ECQ, as follows:

  • Filing of Position Paper to Notice of Informal conference or other similar letters and correspondence with the similar due date (specifically referred as item 41-46 under RR No. 7-2020) where the extended due date shall be thirty (30) days from the lifting of state of emergency.
  • Suspension of Running of Limitations under section 203 and 222 pursuant to Section 223 of the Tax Code (specifically referred as item 49 under RR No. 7-2020) where the extended due date shall be sixty (60) days after the lifting of state of emergency.
