Conference on the Introduction of Value Added Tax (VAT) to Myanmar
On the 29th of January 2020, we held our book launch on “Introduction of Value-Added Tax (VAT) to Myanmar” by Prof. Dr. Stefan Collignon from London School of Economics and Political Science in Nay Pyi Taw. Participants from the Ministry of Planning, Finance and Industry as well as the Ministry of Commerce attended the event.
To achieve a sustainable economy in Myanmar, an efficient tax system is important. Therefore, the introduction of Value Added Tax (VAT) is a crucial step. Value Added Tax is an indirect tax in which the calculation of tax liability is imposed on transactions and not on people. The book also highlights how to introduce VAT in Myanmar with case examples of Germany and Thailand.
