The said notice further makes exemption for retroactive tax and penalty for non- compliance in previous year.
It is essential that foreign nationals who conduct any business or are employed in Cambodia obtain a work permit from Ministry of Labor to avoid any risk of illegal work and penalty imposed under Cambodia’s labor or immigration laws.
