Vietnam investor tax advice published in STEP Journal

December 15, 2021

Kreston Global tax expert, Nam Nguyen from Kreston NNC in Ho Chi Minh City, recently shared his experience of working with foreign investors in Vietnam with STEP Journal and how personal tax planning and understanding tax residence can save clients money.

What is the issue?
Vietnam taxes residents on worldwide income and non-residents on Vietnam-sourced
income, regardless of where they get paid.

What does it mean for me?
Tax rates for tax residents are comparatively high, with a 35 per cent top marginal rate and few tax reliefs.

What can I take away?

Personal tax planning is essential when advising clients considering working or doing business in Vietnam.
