The coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak has created major economic disruptions and the global economy is projected to contract sharply by -3% in 2020 (source: IMF World Economic Outlook 2020, April 14, 2020). Likewise, the economic impact has intensified in Vietnam due to social distancing, the stoppage in production, disruptions in business investments/operation resulting in losses and difficulties for investors and business communities.
Nguyen Thu Phuong and Nguyen Hung Du, of Grant Thornton Vietnam, discuss the impact of an intra-group agreement and the tax risks involved.
There are potential licensing and tax risk issues in the event that a representative office is treated as a permanent establishment by its activities in Vietnam, as discussed by Nghiem Xuan Hong An and Nguyen Hung Du, of Grant Thornton.
Recording loss is a normal event in the operational journey of a company. However, in a transfer pricing analysis, judging a company merely from accounting loss may not be appropriate. One has to delve further and understand the economics behind the numbers and not just the financial outcome of profit or loss.
Nguyen Hung Du and Luong Thuy Trang, of Grant Thornton Vietnam, provide an overview of tax incentives in Vietnam and discuss how foreign investors can make the most of the opportunities available.
