Cambodia Tax and Customs Summit – Current challenges and a look to the future

The rapid developments in the customs and taxation regimes in Cambodia can be confusing for investors and business operators. The experts at VDB Loi, in partnership with ACCA and the General Department of Customs and Excise, are offering a full-day seminar to help clear up this confusion, detailing major recent changes and outlining what they believe will be the most significant developments to come.

Expert and author Mr. Chea Samnang from the Customs Department will address issues related to the establishment of the ASEAN economic community. VDB Loi’s tax and legal advisors will discuss the recent flood of taxation legislation, and what those changes will mean to your business and investments.

  • Update on customs and excise regulations and procedures
  • Common pitfalls to avoid in tax audits
  • Changes in protest and tax audit procedures
  • New tax legislation
    • Changing compliance obligations
    • Effect on day-to-day operations

The seminar will be held from 9:00am – 5:00pm on 6 April 2016. The registration fee is US$60 per person, and lunch and snacks will be provided. To register for this summit, contact Ms. Kathryn Ortega at [email protected] or on 023 964 430 to 435.
