Burma's income tax law clarified
The Burmese tax office publishes a notification on changes to the personal tax system for the 2016-17 financial year. The Burmese tax office published a report on Friday on changes to the personal tax system for the 2016-17 financial year, which includes special provisions regarding financial reliefs and exceptions.
IRD published an announcement in the state paper The Mirror that all residents with an average yearly salary of less than 4.8 million Kyat (US$4,000) are exempted from PIT. Fundamental financial and other individual benefits for spouse, child and dependant parent are subtracted from your company's total taxpayer's profit.
In this case, only persons with an average net yearly wage of more than two million Kyat (US$ 1,625) will be subject to personal taxes after termination of employment. Accordingly, the fundamental financial benefit for individual persons amounts to 20 per cent of their total financial resources and not more than 10 million Kyat (8,120 US dollars).
One million Kyat (USD 812) per dependant and 500,000 Kyat (USD 406) per each year are also made out. A system of calculations in the announcement states that a five per cent levy is levied on persons making between two and five million Kyat, 10 per cent for those making between five and ten million Kyat, 15 per cent for those making between ten and 20 million Kyat, 20 per cent for those making between 20 and 30 million Kyat and 25 per cent for those making over 30 million Kyat a year.
He said that the employer is liable for the employees' deductions of personal earnings taxes; the federal administration then incurs taxes on the basis of "declared" wages, which may differ from real incomes. In 2014-15 Burma raised about 4.3 trillion Kyat from taxes, while in 2013-14 about 3.8 trillion Kyat were raised.
