Structuring and Financing Condominium and Borey Development Projects in Cambodia | 26 April 2018 | Phnom Penh

DFDL partners Guillaume Massin and Clint O’Connell and guest speakers Tom O’Sullivan, and Kunthea Meas, Bred Bank shared recent trends and insights in condominium and borey project development in Cambodia with a very engaged audience at this well attended breakfast seminar.

The residential real estate market in Cambodia is booming and has attracted a large number of local as well as, more recently, foreign investors. At this Real Estate Breakfast Talk, you will hear about the latest developments and get practical advice on how to effectively invest in these residential projects.

We will give you an overview of the most recent trends and explain how to efficiently structure investments in condo and borey developments from a Cambodian and foreign investor perspective. We will share our own firsthand experiences of the practicalities of investing in these projects which are often not clearly covered by laws and regulations!

At this breakfast seminar, our senior panel speakers from BRED Bank, and DFDL will explore the following:

  • Financing solutions and approval process for buyers: documents, property valuation, compliance;
  • Commercial partnerships between banks and developers; 
  • Risks and challenges of financing real estate projects;
  • Salient tax issues to be aware of – Transfer Pricing, VAT, Income recognition issues;
  • Tax efficient structures for real estate developers: repatriation issues;
