The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a considerable increase of businesses going bankrupt as well as high unemployment rates. While businesses have suffered extensively, the economy is still projected to record optimistic growth, based on the fact that the country has successfully contained the pandemic, and is prepared to deal with a second wave.

To assist businesses during this difficult period, the Government has introduced various types of financial and tax subsidy policies to help boost the country’s economic growth. In addition, to the implementation of the new Law on Tax Administration 38/2019/QH14, effective from July 1, 2020, there are critical changes and updates in tax regulations that may affect businesses in 2020.

These policy changes and updates will be covered during the webinar hosted by Dezan Shira & Associates:

  • COVID-19: Economic impact and the Vietnamese government’s support policies
  • Government’s tax subsidy policies for businesses post COVID-19 pandemic
    • Deferral of tax payments & land lease (Decree 41/2020/NĐ-CP)
