A standard deduction exists for residents in the form of a personal allowance which helps to lower your taxable income.

Non-resident taxpayers are subject to a flat rate of 20% for employment income and are not eligible for the personal allowance.

For both residents and non-residents, tax rates differ for income that does not come from normal employment. That said, our calculator is focused purely on normal employment income.

Social Security in Vietnam

The social security system in Vietnam is comprehensive and consists of various insurance systems including ones covering sickness, maternity, work related accident and injury, retirement and death, health, and unemployment.

Mandatory contributions are shared between employers and employees.

There is a maximum cap on the income applicable for calculating contributions which depends on the minimum wage. For Vietnam, there exists different minimum wages depending on whether one is working in the public or private sector. For the purposes of social security, the minimum wage from the public sector is used.

All mandatory contributions to social security are tax deductible.

Foreign individuals also have to contribute with the exception of the unemployment insurance.

Resident status and income tax in Vietnam

Individuals that are considered to be residents for tax purposes are subject to income tax on worldwide income. On the other hand, individuals that are considered to be non-residents for tax purposes are subject to income tax on only income sourced from Vietnam while working in Vietnam.

The resident taxpayer status applies to anyone that either has a permanent residence in Vietnam or stays in Vietnam for at least 183 days in either a calendar year or a period of twelve months from when they arrive in the country. For foreigners, simply renting a location with a lease term of at least 183 days within a tax year will also have their location considered to be a permanent residence.

Everyone that does not fit any of the resident criteria would then be considered to be non-residents for tax purposes.
