Corporate income tax and fiscal incentives or Package 2 of the Corporate Recovery and Tax Incentives for Enterprises or C.R.E.A.T.E. is a newly passed law.

C.R.E.A.T.E. bill trims down corporate income tax (CIT) from 30% to 25% for large corporations and 20% for small and medium corporations (given that their net taxable income is below Php 5M and their total assets are below Php 100M).
