COVID-19 Government Initiatives & Support in the Lao PDR 

by Segolene Leffy

Published: May, 2021

Submission: May, 2021

 



With the continuation of the Prime Minister’s orders on measures for COVID-19 prevention and control until 4 June 2021, we have pulled together a guide on some of the current Government initiatives and support available to businesses in the Lao PDR. In our guide, we provide details on:


  • Banking & Finance: The latest credit policies and guidelines for commercial banks and financial institutions. As a business, you should discuss with your bank whether a postponement of loan repayments and interest is applicable to your situation, whether your loan can be restructured, or whether new financing is available.
  • Employment & Labor: Businesses should consider the applicable regulations when amending employment terms and conditions, what unemployment benefits may be available to staff, whether a business can delay social security contributions and whether there will be a reduction in utilities fees.
  • Taxation: Businesses should also note the extension for filing of the FY2020 financial statement and also the new policies on taxation exemptions and extensions.

All you need to know is in this guide – Download it now!
