April is the month of the year for Annual Income Tax Return deadline submission. And as Freelancers or Small time Business Owners we are still obliged to file for our tax. But why should we?

 

Every year we have this obligation to file for our income tax. Either you are employed in a private sector or public, and even being a freelancer, working from home or online, or having a small business, as long as we are earning, we need to comply with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

 

But why?

 

Why should we?

 

Why do we need to?

 

Remember, “Ignorance of the Law excuses no one”. Either you know it but you don’t follow or you really don’t know about it, then you may start seeing why you should.

 

In this episode I will share with you my threasons (3 Reasons) why every work from home employee or freelancers should start filing your income taxes.

ATS 008: Things to Remember when Starting to Work From Home

Working from home is the new business style and now, it is becoming an in-demand job especially for Filipinos. I know the feeling and the benefits of working from home but you should also be aware of the things you need to consider once you decided to work from home.

 

Oh yes! Work from home is a real freedom when you can manage your own schedule. It is one of the answers to daily commuting and also has a competitive compensation package.

I understand that most of the time, once we received our salary, we pay for the expenses first before we decide to pay for mandatory benefits by our constitution. I mean not all but for some it is, and I am one of them.

Basically because we don’t see the benefits of these benefits. (huh?!) We don’t see the advantages of why we should not forget to contribute for these benefits. And as one of them, in this episode, I will share with you why it is important and hopefully to become a priority on your list too.

You will never ever have your online career unless you make a start. You might have many reasons in your mind why you can’t start but if you want it, then make a move.

When you hear of someone who is working online, your heart leaps too and wants to start your own. Of course, how can we resist the idea of working full-time without spending our time commuting in traffic.

Working from home is not just about having work and that’s it. It requires time and talent so you will be able to land a job that will give you more freedom.

In this episode, I will give you more reasons why you should make a move and how you can make a move. You will never have the online job like I do if you won’t step forward to learn new things and learn the world of freelancing.

12 Legit Work From Home Websites for Filipino Workers

You want to start your own online career but you are not sure where to go, hopefully this post might help you which websites can help you start your online job.

What does it mean to “Work From Home”?

Basically, working in the comfort of your home but actually not just your home. Either in any part of your home – in your bed, living room, or dining table or wherever there is internet connection – cafe, restaurants or computer shops. Wherever it is, that is your workplace!

It was not restricted to just your own home, you can also be on your friend’s home, your neighbor or your relatives or might be the best feeling is when you want to visit your dream vacation place and bring your laptop with you.

Work From Home Jobs only needs your Laptop (Well, you can’t bring your whole Desktop on the go) with stable Internet Connection. Clients will sometimes require you to install apps or programs that will be used for collaboration. You might also be needing additional peripherals like headsets with noise cancellation feature that might help you stay on calls without distractions to your clients.

What are the Advantages of Working From Home?

1. No More Everyday Traffic

Traffic is the #1 pain that every Filipino worker’s reason in transitioning to online-based jobs. These hours spent commuting are enough to finish tasks when you work online.

According to the study conducted by Boston Consulting Group, Metro Manila has 3rd worst traffic in Southeast Asia. The Philippine’s Government together with MMDA is still trying to resolve this #1 problem but still it has a long way to go for a reality to be resolved.

That’s why many Filipino workers would still choose to work online so they can escape the average 66 minutes daily traffic.

2. Expenses to Savings

Of course, when we are commuting, we are also paying for our transportation expenses which includes gasoline, toll fees, and commuting fare. We can also limit ourselves to participating in buying outside foods like coffee, junk foods and even eating at fast food chains. We can also be less fashionista especially to offices that have no dress code.

When we work from home, those expenses can be used for more important financial aspects or as additional savings. Less transpo allowance, less comfort foods and most especially we can wear anything we are comfortable. (Can be working topless, or just with your boxers or undies.😂)

3. More Productive Days

One of the amazing advantages of working from home is converting your days to more productive days. Well, in a 24 hour shift, give some time at least 8 to 9 hours of sleep. That is one of the benefits you can give yourself.

Now, you have 15 more hours to become productive. If your online job is 8 hours, you have 7 hours to do other matters. If your online job requires you less than 8 hours, which is much better, the remaining hours is for you to attend other matters.

Working from home lets you manage your own time and on your own terms. You can pause for a moment to attend other tasks, and resume working as long as you deliver what you need to deliver.

There’s actually different styles of working from home which I shared at Asenso Tips and Stories Podcast Session #6. It really depends on what type of client hired you.

ATS 006: When is the Right Time to Start Working From Home?

It’s hard to tell when to start when you don’t know what you are going to do or what you will experience? It’s hard to predict when you have so many things in your mind. It was hard to tell you can if you wouldn’t push that button. So asking when is the right time? It should start with YOU.
There’s really no freedom when working from home especially if it is the same with how you work in an office, the only thing I know when working from home is: 

  1. when you can free yourself from commuting, no longer hours with traffic; 
  2. when you can manage your own time, you can work on your own terms; 
  3. when you can have your vacation, just bring your device with you so you don’t need to file a leave
Working from home has different styles of working mode depending on your client needs either if your client is a result-based or time-based.

So if you are still deciding if you want to work from home, this episode might help you decide if it is really the right time for you.
