Foreign investors are allowed to remit profits overseas provisionally, on a quarterly/semi-annual basis, at year end or upon termination of business operation.

Transactions typically include:
- CIT returns must be lodged and tax due paid beforehand

- No provisional remittance allowed for the last year of business operation

Companies are required to submit the Declaration for profit remittance to the local tax authority and bank will process remittance based on tax authority’s certification.
