DFDL Cambodia Tax Alert: Changes to Tax on Income and Tax on Salary Tables

Sub-Decree No. 196 (“Sub-Decree 196”) was issued on the 28th of September 2022 by the Royal Government of Cambodia and concerns an amendment to the Tables of Taxable Thresholds for Annual Tax on Income and Monthly Tax on Salary.

The amendments to the progressive Annual Tax on Income and Monthly Tax on Salary tables under Sub-Decree 196 takes effect from 1 January 2023.

The purpose of Sub-Decree 196 is to amend the annual progressive Tax on Income thresholds realized by physical persons, sole proprietorships, and on the distributive share of partners in a partnership that are not classified as a legal person under the Law on Taxation. Sub-Decree 196 also amends the monthly Tax on Salary thresholds which apply to Cambodian resident employees.

We have tabled the respective changes to annual progressive Tax on Income rates for taxpayers that are not considered legal pesons and the monthly progressive Tax on Salary rates for tax resident employees in Cambodia in the tables below.

1.) Tax on Income for Physical Persons, Sole Proprietorships, and Partnerships

2.) Monthly Tax on Salary for Tax Resident Employees in Cambodia

DFDL notes that Sub-Decree 196 will abrogate Sub-Decree No. 09 dated 13 February 2020 once implemented and the firm expects that the GDT will issue relevant regulations to provide further details on the changes to the tables.
