Situated between India and China, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) acts as a gateway between the world’s two most populated countries. The once isolated country boasts vast areas of agricultural land, huge hydro-power reserves and an abundance of raw materials such as crude oil, gas, copper, wolfram, jade, gemstones and wood. Alongside its natural resources, Myanmar hosts overland transport routes leading to Thailand, China and India, which will be considerably expanded in the coming years. It also has a coastline along the Andaman Sea and the Bay of Bengal which not only offers short freight shipping routes but has enormous potential for tourism development.
Myanmar is a member of the WTO and ASEAN and began its political transition process in late 2010. It has since been gradually opening up its borders to international firms and foreign investments. The new legal framework established over the past few years has significantly improved investment conditions and offers comprehensive tax and customs reliefs, especially in the industrial sector.
Only 50 years ago, Myanmar was South-East Asia’s strongest economy. With its strategic location, a population of approximately 51 million and low salary levels, Myanmar has tremendous potential to play an important role in Asia again.
Rödl & Partner established a wholly-owned office in Yangon, Myanmar’s former capital and its most important commercial centre. With a team of advisers fluent in English, Mandarin, German and Myanmar, we render legal and tax advisory services as well as accounting assistance from a single source. Our Yangon office focuses predominantly on structuring and incorporating companies, investment projects, and business transactions. Additionally we offer a full array of outsourcing services in the areas of accounting and payroll services.
A vital component of doing business in Myanmar is having reliable dealings with authorities that are responsible for issuing respective permits. The expertise of our Myanmar lawyers and tax experts has enabled us to develop an impressive portfolio of contacts in this area.
