Myanmar: Year-end Tax Workshop
9 Mar 2019
Kloud (14th Floor), Junction City Office Tower, Yangon

All taxpayers should now be in the process of planning their year-end annual tax filings for the 2018–2019 financial year (“FY“).

Corporate Income Tax ("CIT“), Commercial Tax (“CT“), and Specific Goods Tax (“SGT“) must be paid to the Internal Revenue Department (“IRD“) by 10 April 2019 for FY2018–19. In addition, Personal Income Tax (“PIT“) and Withholding Tax (“WHT“) must be paid to the IRD by 31 March 2019, and Capital Gains Tax (“CGT“) must be paid to the IRD within 30 days from the date of sale, exchange, or transfer of any capital assets.

The annual CIT, CT, PIT, and CGT returns are required to be submitted to the IRD within three months after the end of FY2018–19 (i.e., by 30 June 2019). It should be noted that there is a 10% late-payment penalty to be applied on the total underpaid tax amount of the income year should payments be made after the above-mentioned deadlines; there is also a late-filing penalty of 10% on the annual payable tax amount, if annual tax returns are not submitted by the aforementioned annual tax return filing deadline.

In this practical and hands-on workshop, VDB Loi will be discussing and guiding you on how to prepare for the upcoming year-end tax returns and filings. Importantly, the key issues usually looked at by the IRD during the tax assessment process, as well as various case studies, will also be discussed. Upon attending this workshop, you will be able to accurately calculate your tax position and successfully prepare your tax returns.


  • What is your CIT position and how to prepare tax returns under the Self-Assessment System (“SAS“) vs the Official Assessment System (“OAS“)?
  • What are the deductible expenses for CIT calculation?
  • CT offset mechanism – whether it is accrual or cash basis
  • Is it necessary to prepare a separate annual return for CGT?
  • Have you filed all of your quarterly SGT returns? Any penalty on late SGT payment and/or the return filing?
  • Abolishment of WHT during FY2018–19: are there any impacts on our annual tax returns and tax audits?
  • What are the main items the IRD looks at during the assessment process?
