The Ministry of Finance in March 2016 issued guidance for implementing corporate and individual (personal) income tax law changes enacted in 2015.
The guidance—Administrative Instruction No. 02/2016 and Administrative Instruction No. 01/2016 (15 March 2016)—includes provisions for implementing Law No. 05/L-029 (on corporate income tax) and Law No. 05/L-028 (on individual income tax).
The corporate income tax guidance, however, does not include measures relating to transfer pricing as originally presented in a draft document. It is not clear whether a specific instruction will be provided by the Finance Ministry in relation to the transfer pricing rules.
