Tax Workshop: Customs Value vs Transfer Pricing – 3 Nov 2011, HCMC


DFDL Tax Workshop


How to practically manage overlapping and conflicting rules in Vietnam?

Thursday, 3 November 2011
9am – 12pm

Legend Hotel Saigon
2A-4A Ton Duc Thang Street, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Dear Clients,

What happens if the customs authorities reject the declared value of imported goods, even though the GDT does accept the same value? Are the transfer pricing rules for customs and corporate tax the same? How do you resolve conflicts?

In most cases, when enterprises import goods into Vietnam from related suppliers, the customs authorities and the GDT have opposite concerns: the GDT is worried the value of the goods is too high, the customs authorities worry the value is too low.

Enterprises have to take both concerns into account. They navigate between two different sets of local practices, rules and international principles.

This unique, in-depth seminar focuses on how the rules differ, and on practical experiences:

  • How to defend yourself to a customs value reassessment?
  • Practical application of Customs Valuation Rules in Vietnam
  • What is the impact of a changing supply chain?
  • Transfer pricing principles in customs cases
  • How do customs authorities interpret the valuation rules?
  • Does your benchmark report prepared for CIT help for customs disputes?
  • When can Transaction Value be rejected?
  • Circular 66 Transfer Pricing vs Decree 40 Customs Valuation
