Personal income tax planning when employing foreign experts in vietnam

About this event

Continuing our ongoing client seminar series*, where we focus on practical compliance and operational issues for businesses in Vietnam, we will host our next in person seminar in July covering “Personal Income Tax Planning when Employing Foreign Experts/Individuals in Vietnam”.

When assisting businesses, we have observed numerous instances of uncertainty and issues relating to PIT obligations regarding the employment of foreigners in Vietnam

  • How to plan and estimate payable PIT amount to authorities when companies employ foreigners (after obtaining a Work Permit)?
  • What elements impact the PIT calculations?
  • How to structure salaries, allowances and benefits to make tax efficient?

These are some of the common questions from both employers and foreign employees when dealing with the onboarding process. In this seminar, we will address all of the above questions and help you to understand PIT obligations in Vietnam, creating a strong foundation for being compliant whilst ensuring an effective PIT optimisation and avoiding pitfalls.
