The New Regulation for Penalty Free Tax Corrections in Cambodia: Is This a Good Idea for Your Situation?


With a brand new regulation, Prakas 071 of 2024, the Cambodian General Department of Taxation (“GDT”) will allow all taxpayers to fix their tax returns for transactions up to end of 2023, and this without interest or penalties. But many questions remain. Who can benefit from this new policy? What happens with past years that are already under audit? How does the correction work in reality? In this uniquely practical webinar, VDB Loi’s tax experts will examine for you if this opportunity is a good idea for your situation.

A fascinating opportunity to make considerable savings: what are the key things to understand about the GDT’s new policy? And, how will it work in practice?


  • For which years can you make corrections?
  • What happens for past years already under tax audit?
  • How do you actually make the corrections practically?
  • Which interests and penalties will be waived?
  • How do you decide if this is a good idea for your situation?
