Myanmar Tax Academy
The Myanmar tax regime comprises four main taxes: (1) income taxes (e.g., corporate income tax (“CIT”), personal income tax (“PIT”), and withholding tax (“WHT”)); (2) commercial tax (“CT”); (3) specific goods tax (“SGT”), and (4) jewelry tax.
The Income Tax Law 1974 is the law that governs the payment, collection, and assessment of direct taxes in Myanmar, including CIT, PIT, and WHT. The Commercial Tax Law 1990 and the Specific Goods Tax Law 2016 govern the payment, collection, and assessment of indirect taxes in Myanmar. Commercial tax is similar to value added tax in other countries and is imposed on the importation of goods, the manufacture and local sale of goods, and the provision of services in Myanmar, except for certain types of goods and services exempted under the annual Union Tax Law. SGT is similar to excise tax and imposed on certain luxury goods, natural resources, and goods harmful to public health like cigarettes and alcohol. Jewelry tax is governed under the Myanmar Gemstone Law 2019 and applies to the gemstone industry only.
VDB Loi Myanmar is offering a six-session tax academy that will focus on five main topics applicable to a business’s day-to-day operations. Our expert tax specialists will share not only theorical knowledge but also their practical experience with and challenges from the Internal Revenue Department (“IRD”).

After completion of our academy, you will be able to assess and calculate the tax position of a company and file tax returns with the IRD. We will also provide an academy completion certificate for those who attend all sessions.
