Taxation & Compliance Reviews and Health Checks
Undertaking a review of the operations of an existing company, including the tax compliance and lodgement history (commonly referred to as a "Corporate Health Check") provides management with a strong understanding of the risks and issues that need attention within an organisation, and the potential financial impact of these issues. Using a checklist based approach, Domicile's taxation and compliance reviews enable companies in Vietnam to focus on the key risks within an organisation and minimise future tax exposures.
Taxation Due Diligence
We work with investors seeking to undertake transactions in Vietnam to complete Tax Due Diligence on a target company, often in conjunction with a Financial Due Diligence exercise, to obtain a true picture and analysis of the potential investment entity and to facilitate pricing and matters for rectification in documentation or post investment.
Taxation Policy & Compliance Manuals
Developing internal manuals and policies, which are in line with a group's corporate requirements, yet meet the Vietnamese tax requirements on an ongoing basis, is a core element to a strong internal control and compliance environment. We have extensive experience in developing manuals and policies in conjunction with regional and international teams to ensure corporate governance, consistency across regions and local compliance.
