GBS - It's official: Uber has been ordered to adhere to new rules that require it to declare and pay taxes in Vietnam.
After a long legal back-and-forth between policymakers and Uber, the popular ride-sharing service has now officially been ordered to adhere to new rules that require it to declare and pay taxes in Vietnam.
Worry free about your personal income tax in Vietnam
There are currently four categories of taxpayers in Vietnam: Vietnamese citizens residing in Vietnam, Vietnamese citizens working or on business trips outside of Vietnam, individuals who do not have Vietnamese citizenship but reside in Vietnam indefinitely, and foreigners working in Vietnam including those who do not live in Vietnam but have income which is sourced in Vietnam.
Foreigners are deemed to be resident for tax purposes if they reside in Vietnam for an aggregate of 183 days or more within 12 consecutive months since their arrival in Vietnam, although this may be substantially changed by tax treaties. Resident foreigners are subject to progressive tax rates; those who are not resident are liable to a single 25% tax on income earned in Vietnam if they spend between 30 days and 182 days in Vietnam. Only foreigners who spend fewer than 30 days in Vietnam are exempt from income tax!
