With the 2018 year well under way it is now time for enterprises in Cambodia to turn their attention to their annual compliance obligations. We sumarise these below for your reference.
2018 Patent Tax
All taxpayers operating in Cambodia are required to register and pay Patent Tax by the 31st of March each year for each business activity that they carry out.
Certificate of Compliance
All Cambodia enterprises that hold Qualified Investment Projects are required to submit an application for a Certificate of Compliance (COC) by the 31st of March of each year following the year in which they obtained a Final Registration Certificate from the Council for the Development of Cambodia.
Annual Declaration of Commercial Enterprise
Use of the Ministry of Commerce’s (MOC) online system for the submission of an Annual Declaration of Commercial Enterprise is now compulsory and must be performed within three months from the anniversary of the enterprise’s re-registration on the MOC’s online system.

In order to avoid penalties and the loss of investment incentives we can assist with preparing and filing your annual Patent Tax and COC submissions. We can also assist in preparing and submitting your ADCE via the MOC’s online system.
