Until now the VAT refund process was a very lengthy process – sometimes taking years – and often subject to uncertainty and delays. It appears that the General Department of Taxation (GDT) has taken note of these concerns and in response have acted upon them by issuingPrakas 576 “The Refund of Value Added Tax” (Prakas 576)in June 2018 with the stated purpose of“developing a mechanism to effectively and efficiently refund VAT”...

Nishant Choudhary Recently Quoted in Myanmar Times
DFDL, July 2018

Nishant Choudhary, DFDL Myanmar Deputy Managing Director was recently quoted in a Myanmar Times article on reforms taking place in the retail and wholesale sector. The ministry is now considering limiting the scope of foreign investors and/or JVs by imposing additional restrictions. Our expert was responding to the question: If the ministry issues an amendment to limit foreign investments and/or JVs, how will this affect potential inward FDI? Nishant observed that the government had deviated from the policy that it originally announced, with potentially negative implications on investor confidence and continued growth momentum in the country. https://protect-au.mimecast...
