On March 1, 2006, the P400,000 note payable was replaced by an 18-month note for the same amount. Heats is considering similar action on the P100,000 note payable due on December 31, 2006. The 2005 financial statements were issued on March 31, 2006. On December 1, 2005, a former employee filed a lawsuit seeking P200,000 for unlawful dismissal. Heats’ attorneys believe that the suit is without merit. No court date has been set. On January 15, 2006, the BIR assessed Heats an additional income tax of P300,000 for the 2003 tax year. Heats’ attorneys and tax accountants have stated that it is likely that the BIR will agree to a P200,000 settlement.
