Since Covid-19 started, the business landscape has been in a state of constant change. Numerous trends have emerged, and the acceleration of e-commerce is more evident than ever, which has led to an increase in tax concerns.
Furthermore, Vietnam's tax landscape has evolved significantly with a long-run strategy of tax system reform, and in the short-run to address the challenges in this turbulent time of the economy. The recent tax trends indicate a mixture of good and bad news for taxpayers, creating an environment in which risk and opportunity sit side-by-side.
In light of it, EuroCham and KPMG invite you to this event "Tax Policy 2022-2025: Maximizing opportunities in an evolving landscape", where some of the most prominent tax issues will be discussed. Our speakers from KPMG, one of the most renowned accounting firms, will discuss the following key topics:
• Vietnam outlook and tax policy landscape for the period from 2022 to 2025
• E-commerce and digital service taxation
• Tax audit status and trend in 2022
