The Mongolian Parliament approved new amendments to the corporate income tax and individual (personal) income tax law, introducing a capital gain tax on the sale of stocks and securities, effective from 1 July 2024.

Entities with regulated activities under the Law on Securities Market will need to withhold taxes on the sale of bonds, stocks, and other securities. The tax rate for resident taxpayers will be 10% on the taxable gain, while for non-residents, it will be 20% on gross proceeds. Tax credits are available for the sale of securities on the domestic primary and secondary market at the rate of 90% between 2024 and 2026, and then 50% between 2027 and 2029.
