DFDL recently reaffirmed its position as the leading tax advisory practice in emerging South East Asia when it conducted a first-of-its-kind knowledge-sharing session with high level officials from Myanmar’s Internal Revenue Department (IRD) in Nay Pyi Daw, Myanmar. The session, held in collaboration with DFDL’s alliance transfer pricing firm Quantera Global, was attended by around 40 senior tax directors and technical officers of the IRD.

During the session DFDL Partner Jack Sheehan, Tax Director Bernard Cobarrubias and Quantera Senior Partner Steven Carey shared experience with Myanmar’s leading tax officials on regional and international tax trends, double tax treaties and transfer pricing.
“Central to the discussions were the tax issues faced by international clients in the current business environment in Myanmar,” said DFDL Tax partner Jack Sheehan.  “As international investors increasingly enter Myanmar, the IRD there was particularly keen to hear those issues as well as cases and practical examples from other tax jurisdictions.”

“It was an excellent session,” Jack continued. “Being asked to brief Myanmar’s most senior IRD officials was a huge honor in itself, but it also highlights how well the firm is regarded in Myanmar.  Our strong relationship with the IRD will be particularly useful for our clients as they navigate the complexities of investing in this exciting market.”

DFDL continues to be ranked as leading legal and tax advisory firm in Myanmar with has offices in Yangon and Nay Pyi Daw.
