Dear DB Legal Law Firm in Da Nang, Viet Nam. I am foreigner living in Da Nang. I am working for IT company in France. I would like to know that I have to pay Personal Income Tax in Viet Nam because I am now living for one year and more. Thank you.

Thank you for your email.

There are some notable points relating PIT in Viet Nam and the foreigners should study and consider whether you are payer or not.

2. Taxable Income:

- Residents: income earned within and beyond Vietnam’s territory regardless of the place where income is paid.
- Non-residents: income earned in Viet Nam, regardless of the place where income is paid and received.

3. Tax rates:

- Residents: from 1~35% per income.
- Non-residents: 20% per income
