Tax issues repeatedly are the #1 “doing business” concern of AmCham Vietnam members throughout the country. In this seminar, tax experts from EY will advise you how to minimize tax compliance risks for your company and adjust to changing business circumstances resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Part 1, EY tax experts will inform you how to adopt tax strategies for your companies, including both corporate income tax and transfer pricing, that minimize errors and audit risks. They will also cover recent proposed changes to Decree 20 dealing with limits on interest deductibility. This information may be particularly important this year as there could be increased pressure on Tax Authorities to ensure companies are compliant.
Part 2 will cover a number of specific COVID-19 tax-related issues. EY tax experts will discuss tax relief measures adopted by Vietnam, and inform you how to take advantage of these measures. They will also discuss other practical matters you need to consider as a result of the change in business circumstances – such as transfer pricing issues that could arise if your profit falls, the deductibility of donations and obsolete stock, changes to supply chains, and other matters.
Come prepared to learn from EY’s tax experts and ask questions!
