The company has remitted to the government close to P80 billion in taxes over the last five years.

“We regard the company’s increasing tax payment as a testament to our efficient operations even as we give our customers better service.  This will further help the government in its efforts to manage the impact of COVID-19 on our economy and the people hardest hit by the pandemic,” said Rizza Maniego-Eala, Globe CFO and Chief Risk Officer.
