We keep our clients abreast of the latest developments in Vietnamese taxation laws and advise them on the most effective ways to structure their operations in Vietnam and provide early warnings and guidance on dealing with emerging risks.

Government liaison, tax risk management and dispute resolution

A good working relationship with Vietnam’s decision-makers is imperative in successfully doing business in Vietnam, in particular in the area of tax. PwC Vietnam has a Government liaison team, with representation in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City that forms part of our tax services offerings. Through this regular dialogue with authorities we are able to advise clients in Vietnam on the frequently changing regulations, and assist clients which are undergoing tax audits.

We also provide a full evaluation of our clients’ transfer pricing position and provide practical recommendations to mitigate transfer pricing risks and develop transfer pricing strategies that support changes or conversion of business operations. In case of disputes with the tax authorities or in support of tax audits, we can facilitate negotiations with competent authorities and assist in the resolution of disputes and shorten tax audit periods through the satisfactory resolution of issues.
