When working together with our legal experts, no other tax advisory service comes close.

Tax compliance and accounting

Our local experts can assist you with all aspects of domestic tax compliance and accounting. While domestic tax regimes are often a headache for multinational companies, our comprehensive service allows investors to rest easy, and focus on their business.

Our teams have drawn their tax professionals from all the Big Four tax firms, resulting in a tax service that is truly second to none. We can manage all your tax and accounting needs, from book-keeping to monthly and annual return preparation or review. Whatever your needs are, VDB Loi is ready to help, after all, in many of our jurisdictions, we (quite literally) wrote the book on tax.

Tax advisory

We specialize in innovative and effective tax planning – on the basis of full disclosure – to help our clients minimize adverse tax consequences and maximize opportunities for tax savings.

Our tax team is knowledgeable about regional tax and offers expertise in cross-border tax matters. We focus on reducing clients’ tax costs in the region and in Cambodia alike. We advise and aid clients in structuring their operations to optimize their tax position within the confines of tax legislation and tax regimes in relevant countries in the region.

Our tax advisory assignments include:

  • Providing tax advice to investors on profit repatriation methods to minimize the incidence of taxes, taking into account intercompany transfer pricing rules and regulations
  • Providing tax due diligence support for merger and acquisition transactions, including assisting buyers with tax structuring
  • Structuring tax-effective compensation packages for senior executives

Tax audit services

We also provide unparalleled tax audit services. The Cambodian audit system is a true battle for any business. With a results-based fee structure system, VDB Loi is truly your partner and ally when it comes to managing the tax audit process.

In addition to managing your audit, VDB Loi can provide you with pre-emptive audit services and comprehensive due diligence for acquisitions and joint ventures. In Cambodia, a tradition of lax tax enforcement is being replaced with transparent and effective tax compliance. We can assist you to ensure that your past liabilities are addressed, before the tax office comes to your door.

Clarifications and rulings

Underdeveloped legal and tax frameworks in Cambodia may appear as a challenge, but VDB Loi sees an opportunity. We work closely with the tax authorities and maintain a strong professional relationship. Therefore, we regularly obtain legal clarifications and tax rulings for our clients, providing them with crucial risk management and a clear advantage over their competitors.
