      Hi group,

      The link is not available now, but it was published by sunstar and just browsed the message today. It was published some time on March 2008. May I ask if this is a go? hmmm....

      THE Cebu City Government is drafting the ordinance that will enforce a National Building Code provision allowing local government units (LGUs) to collect electronic fees.

      Once the measure is approved by the City Council, every computer unit, electrical outlet and telephone node, for example, can be taxed. Councilor Roberto Cabarrubias, head of the committee on information technology, said he is crafting the ordinance following a meeting with City engineers, the city building official and Mayor Tomas Osmeña.

      The ordinance is in line with the City Government's thrust to improve revenue collection.

      "This will be a joint ordinance with Councilor Nestor Archival, chairman of the (council) committee on infrastructure," said Cabarrubias.

      According to Section 7 of the building code, the electronic fees, which depend on the taxed item, range from P2.40 per unit to P1,000.

      The section covers a wide range of taxable electronic devices and gadgets, including all forms of wired and wireless communications like Internet service and facsimile, with a P2.40 per port tax.

      Broadcast stations for both radio and television, relay or receiving stations, maintenance centers, control centers and structures or locations used for electronics and communication services like radar and global positioning are also imposed a per location tax of P1,000.

      Automated teller machines, ticketing, vending and other types of electronic dispensing machines, too, are taxable at P10 per unit.

      The same amount can be demanded as tax for hospital equipment like x-ray, scanners, ultrasound and other devices used for medical, laboratory and testing purposes.

      Cabarrubias said the electronic fees item of Memorandum Circular 1, series of 2004, which sets the new schedule of building permit fees and other charges, remain unenforced in Cebu city.

      He said implementing the fees can be done by the City's team of inspectors by including it in its annual inspection of structures.

      And new building applications will not only require electrical and sanitary permits, among others, but also electronics permit, necessitating the employment of an accredited electronics engineer by the City.

      "Unya ang mga electronics engineers, magamit na unya nila ang ilang lisensya, kay kinahanglanon na man unya ang ilang pirma sa plano (Then the electronic engineers will then be able to use their license because their signature will be needed for the building plan)," the councilor said.

      He said, though, that implementation will be gradual so as not to confuse the businesses with the new law. RHM

          Relevance? As an administrator/users we need nodes and electricity to power the servers and access the internet. We may have a low Total Cost of Ownership while using opensource but the point is it will have a huge effect in TCO if you have a server farm and multiple clients. Just imagine nodes for your servers/workstations and nodes of its power source are taxed.

          Anyways, I just need to know if this gig push thru just to be prepared in planning the network infrastructure (number of nodes) and power socket for future deployment. If this is the law now then owner of business which implement both opensource and proprietary software are all affected.

            A "Cebu City Ordinance", that was created but has not been passed?  One way around the law, if it is in place, would be to not put up your serverfarm or business in Cebu City, if you don't want to pay the fees ;)

            Not so clear as to how this is implemented?  One time or periodic taxes? :)
