The agreement between the Government of the Russian Federation and the Government of the Republic of Albania to avoid double taxation on income and capital taxes Seng Cheaseth, Director of the Legal Division, Tax Policy and International Tax Cooperation at the General Department of Taxation, said that the DTA must not only foster a business-friendly environment between partners , but must also pave the way for free trade agreements with potential partners. In addition to income tax agreements to avoid double taxation, Korea has agreements with many countries, including some tax havens and those that have tentatively concluded such agreements. TIEA coverage covers Andorra, Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands and the Cook Islands, to name a few. TIEAs include information necessary to manage and enforce national tax law, including details relating to the registration of tax payers, information relating to the ownership of the business, accounting documents and accounts of a given transaction, as well as information on individual or corporate financial transactions. TIEAs create a framework for Korea to reduce abusive tax evasion with tax havens and to disclose and collect taxes on offshore tax evasion. In addition, Korea is one of 136 countries that have joined the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Tax Assistance since March 2020. “Free trade agreements are more complex and broader and more closely linked to the promotion of trade flows, rather than avoiding double taxation. However, the kingdom`s efforts to achieve both can only sustain the economy at a time when they are most needed,” he said. The agreement was signed by Cambodian Trade Minister Pan Sorasak and South Korean Trade Minister Yoo Myung-hee at the two-day ASEAN memorial summit, which began on November 25 in the South Korean port city of Busan. “The success of free trade agreements will boost economic growth, increase bilateral trade, encourage foreign direct investment and have a positive impact on employment,” Galliano said, adding that DBA free trade agreements are complementary. The CEO of Cambodia Investment Management Group, Anthony Galliano, told the post office that DBA abolishes and prevents cases of double taxation, encourages bilateral investment, clarity and transparency, stimulates global trade and primarily attracts foreign investment to Cambodia.

Cambodia`s double taxation agreements (DBAs) with Malaysia and southern China are closer to implementation, as the government has submitted the DBA bill with both countries to the legislative body for approval.
