Myanmar Tax Alert - January 2015

Large TaxPayers' Office in Myanmar

 Myanmar Tax Alert

Brief background

The Large Taxpayers’ Office (“LTO”) which was established in 2014 to service large tax payers in Myanmar has started issuing notices to selected companies to start filing their returns with the LTO from 1 January 2015.


As tax payers under the LTO will be on a self assessment basis, interim payments can be made directly to the Myanma Economic Bank without first obtaining a challen from the LTO.

The notification also includes a simple calendar to remind tax payers of their filing and payment obligations.

KPMG comments

Whilst the calendar starts on 1 April 2015, the notification has stated that selected tax payers will need to start filing their returns with LTO from 1 January 2015. It is thus important to understand if tax payer’s Myanmar entity has been selected for the LTO and received the notification as soon as possible as the January deadline is approaching soon.
