Double Taxation Agreement Between Malaysia And Cambodia

“We have been waiting for the agreement for so long… Cambodia is the last Asean member country to sign the DBA with Malaysia. The documents contained an agreement on the prevention of double taxation or DBA and a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the field of tourism, he said. Malaysia`s ambassador to Cambodia, Eldeen Husaini Mohd Hashim, said Cambodia was the last Asean member country to sign a double taxation agreement with Malaysia. The government has approved a proposed double tax evasion (DBA) with South Korea and Malaysia to pave the way for free trade agreements and increased trade and investment. Both countries use the credit method to eliminate double taxation. There are also provisions for the application of a lean tax credit for taxes that should have been due, but which have been exempted or reduced in accordance with the laws of the country concerned in order to promote economic development. The signing of the agreement is one of the main items on Mahathir`s agenda. “In order to increase the volume of trade and investment between Cambodia and Malaysia, Mahathir and I have agreed to allow the institutions concerned in both countries to explore opportunities to further develop our cooperation in these areas,” he said. In Cambodia, double taxation is abolished by deduction of the income tax of the Cambodian-domiciled island up to the tax paid in Hong Kong. In addition, the Double Taxation Convention provides for a mechanism for the exchange of information between the tax authorities of Cambodia and Hong Kong to improve the enforcement of tax against tax evasion, the erosion of the base and the transfer of profits by taxpayers.

PHNOM PENH, September 1 – Malaysian Prime Minister Tun, Dr Mahathir Mohamad, will witness the signing of the Double Tax Prevention Agreement (DBA) during his three-day official visit to the country from 2-4 September, which will further strengthen bilateral trade relations between Malaysia and Cambodia. On 1 January 2020, the double taxation agreement between the Royal Government of the Kingdom of Cambodia (“Cambodia”) and the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People`s Republic of China (“Hong Kong”) came into force to avoid double taxation and prevent tax evasion by taking into account income tax. The CEO of Cambodia Investment Management Group, Anthony Galliano, told the post office that DBA abolishes and prevents cases of double taxation, encourages bilateral investment, clarity and transparency, stimulates global trade and primarily attracts foreign investment to Cambodia. He said dBA also offer a mechanism for exchanging information between tax authorities and help prevent tax evasion and evasion. On the other hand, DBAs are international treaties that help reduce cases of double taxation of income and wealth. PHNOM PENH: Malaysia and Cambodia will sign an agreement tomorrow, during a three-day official visit by Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, to avoid double taxation. The two heads of state and government shared their view that the Comprehensive Regional Economic Partnership (RCEP) will contribute to regional economic integration, growth and safeguarding the multilateral trading system, he said in the joint statement, adding that the two heads of state and government expressed the need to conclude the agreement before the end of the year. At a joint press conference following the signing ceremony, Hun Sen said the volume of trade between Cambodia and Malaysia in both directions was estimated at more than $400 million.
