“We will reach our target for tax collection this year,” GDT’s general director Kong Vibol said in the statement.

Mr Vibol asked all GDT officials to work hard, with discipline and in accordance with the law to encourage more firms to register with the GDT and start paying taxes.

This year the GDT aims to collect $1.92 billion in taxes, Mr Vibol said, adding that to achieve its target the department must implement its medium-term revenue collection strategy (2014-2018) effectively, and strengthen tax collection efforts in the provinces.

He added that the GDT is now updating the property transfer tax.
