As the global economy expands into every corner of the world, many national fiscal authorities are seeking more effective ways to protect their tax bases. Vietnamese authorities are recently increasing to perform more tax audit on transfer pricing, especially for FDIs who have carried losses for certain years. Circular 117/2005/TT-BTC dated 19 December 2005 and Circular 66/2010/TT-BTC dated 22 April 2010 providing guidance on related parties’ transactions.
The Circular has translated into increased challenges for multinational organizations in Vietnam. From detailed transfer pricing regulations to strict documentation requirements, sophisticated audit practices to significant penalties for noncompliance, FDI companies are looking for advice in dealing with the increased regulation and higher scrutiny for recent years. For many of them, the place to turn has become Russell Bedford KTC.
