Trapped Cash: Alternative Ways for Extracting Profit Tax Efficiently from Vietnam

Tax Workshop:  Legend Hotel, HCMC on 16 Sept 2010

How can profit or income of Vietnam subsidiaries be remitted to foreign shareholders in a tax efficient manner? Vietnam withholding taxes on certain cross-border payments may be relatively high. Dividend distribution may not be possible if the company has no actual net profit according to its statutory accounts. Which tax optimization strategies should you be aware of? Does a share buy-back work in Vietnam? What are the advantages to convertible loans? Are service and management fees a viable profit erosion technique?  

If you are exploring cross border profit remittances for your enterprise or investments, you should not miss this DFDL Tax Workshop. A unique opportunity for top-level insights, and highly practical overview of advanced tax planning techniques, such as:

  • Trapped cash: which tax structures allow you to bring cash up tax efficiently when dividends are impossible?

  • Management fees, commissions and service fees paid to overseas related parties
  • Tax and legal pointers for profit repatriation by means of convertible bonds
