Bui Ngoc Tuan-Partner, Deloitte Vietnam The aim is to prevent tax base erosion and profit shifting, limit the race to the bottom on tax rates, and create a fair competitive environment in attracting investment among countries. It is hoped Pillar 2 would take effect from 2023. The regime would be applied to multinational corporations (MNCs) with a global consolidated turnover exceeding $778.5 million. Therefore, there would be a number of large MNCs in Vietnam in the scope of Pillar 2. When applying Pillar 2, if the effective tax rate of the subsidiaries of those MNCs in Vietnam is less than the GMT rate of 15 per cent, they would incur additional tax liabilities in the country of their headquarters, equal to the difference between the 15 per cent rate and the effective tax rate in Vietnam.

Goods at Cat Lai Port in HCM City. Demand for Viet Nam's export goods can be reduced due to the global economic slowdown in the wake of the Fed’s rate increase. — VNA/VNS Photo The latest interest rate hike by the US Federal Reversal (Fed) will weigh on the global economy, including Viet Nam, but experts expect impacts of the Fed’s move on the country will not be significant. The Fed last week raised its benchmark interest rate by half a percentage point, the most aggressive step yet in its fight against a 40-year high in inflation. Banking and finance expert Can Van Luc, chief economist of the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam, told Viet Nam News that the Fed’s move in theory will affect the country’s economic growth, foreign debt payment obligations, exchange rate and foreign investment. “The Fed’s move may push up the global interest rate and slow global economic growth, which will reduce the demand for Viet Nam's export goods. It therefore will slow the … [Read more...] about Fed rate hike’s impact on Vietnamese economy not significant
