Deadline for Personal Income tax finalization 2022

March 27, 2023 | Q&A

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.

Some notable points relate to PIT in Viet Nam; foreigners should study and consider whether they are payers.

1. Taxpayers:

- Foreigners are residents:
Living in Viet Nam for at least 183 days or 12 months from the first day of the presence in Viet Nam.
Having a regular residence in Viet Nam.
- Foreigners are not residents.

2. Taxable Income:

- Residents: income earned within and beyond Vietnam’s territory regardless of 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 


4. PIT settlements:

The payers must declare and settle tax according to the Law of Viet Nam.
The deadline for PIT settlements in 2022 is May 04, 2023.
You are now living in Viet Nam for more than one year; you are then the taxpayer (PIT) in Viet Nam although your income is from an oversea company.
