Tax Master Class – Tax Audits in Cambodia | 15 June 2017 | Phnom Penh

When : 15 June 2017

Where : Phnom Penh

Earlier this month, the General Department of Taxation (“GDT”) issued Notification 7374 concerning the rights and obligations of taxpayers with regard to the submission and resolution of tax complaints. While Notification 7374 re-frames a number of existing regulations, it also provides some additional key changes to the complaints process in Cambodia which all taxpayers should take due notice of.

Notification 7374 is the newest in a number of recent tax audit changes that have occurred in the last 18 months in Cambodia. We encourage you to join our award winning and industry recognized tax experts for an engaging presentation and Q&A session to ensure that you are fully aware of how to comply with these latest developments.

Attendees will gain invaluable insights into the Cambodian tax audit process along with practical updates on the core areas of focus that tax auditors currently have in their sights.

Presented by Clint O’Connell, the primary topics under discussion will range over: 

  • An overview of the different types of tax audits in Cambodia and the tax audit process;
  • Recent changes to the rules and procedures regarding the tax audit process;
  • Recent hot issues in regard to tax audits;
  • Progress report on the newly established tax disputes committee; and
  • A Q&A session where the discussion will be opened to the floor.
