Changes on Your Globe Bill
We redesigned the postpaid bill -- its contents and charges -- with you in mind. We made it simple for you to read and understand so that you know exactly what you're paying for.
In 2017, Globe introduced changes to the postpaid bill content and layout so it’s simpler to read and easier to understand what you’ll be paying for.
In the redesigned bill, the amount in the Statement Summary is now VAT-inclusive.
The usage sections on "Monthly Recurring Fee" and "Summary of Excess Usage" inside your bill now show a separate line item for VAT. In the old bill, VAT can be found only in the Statement Summary of the first page.
We also did minor changes to the following:
- The removal of the payment stub so you can pay using just your account number.
- Introduction of a message box for personalized greetings.
- The addition of payment channels at the foot of the first page.
- Removal of the flat rate call indicator inside the bill since all the calls now have fixed-service rates.
If you're receiving your bill for the first time, you'll see a "Welcome Message" in the first page and a special section called "Plan Details."
Don't worry, we're not charging you any fees for these changes.
The redesigned bill has the following sections inside:
A. Statement Summary
B. Monthly Recurring Fee (MRF)
C. Summary of Excess Charges
D. Summary of MRF with Excess Usage
E. Summary of Other Charges
F. Details of Rewards
G. Previous and Current Bill Adjustments
H. Prepaid Loading Services
I. Usage Details
J. Value-added Services
K. Roaming Usage
The Statement Summary shows the different amounts already inclusive of value-added tax (VAT). If you'd like to see the breakdown details of the amounts with their corresponding tax, you'll have to go to the summary section of the bill. The total VAT of your MRF and excess usage can be seen under the sub-section "Total Charges."
The monthly recurring fees, one-time charges, local, domestic and other usages, are charged with twelve percent VAT as required by law.
