Client Update, August 2017: Social Insurance for Foreign Employees in 2018

At the present time, foreign individuals working in Vietnam are only subject to compulsory government Health Insurance and Personal Income Tax on their salary. However, changes from 1 January 2018 will result in Social Insurance becoming compulsory for most foreign employees in Vietnam. With a total impact to salaries of up to 25.5% (17.5% employer portion and 8% employee portion), this may result in a substantial impact on payroll costs and take-home salaries.


Vietnam Transfer Pricing: The Impacts on Small Businesses with Foreign Transactions

Changes released during 2017 to the Transfer Pricing regulations in Vietnam, together with the additional procedural changes from the Vietnam tax authorities, have made the process of transacting with related companies abroad from Vietnam more complicated and uncertain, particularly for smaller foreign invested businesses.


Understanding Work Permits in Vietnam

Work Permits appear to cause much confusion and stress in Vietnam, yet this is unnecessary and they are far less complicated or stressful than many make out.

Fundamentally, all foreign individuals require a Vietnamese Work Permit before they commence or undertake any work in Vietnam, unless they are covered by an exemption category. This also means that foreign individuals need a Work Permit even during probation periods.

Our July 2017 monthly Tax Updates publication from Domicile Corporate Services covers selected recent updates and releases for Vietnamese companies with regards to the compliance and operations in Vietnam.
