Netflix Says Ready to Pay Tax After Vietnam Complaint

first_imgThe minister’s criticism against Netflix also focused on its content.Hung said some of its shows feature “violence, use of drugs, and pornography,” violating censorship laws that govern Vietnam’s tightly controlled film industry. He also specifically singled out a Vietnam War documentary for its “wrong reflection of history”. Separately, in 2017 Netflix removed the Stanley Kubrick classic Full Metal Jacket from its catalogue after a request from the government. Vietnam is hoping to build a reputation as a Southeast Asian hub for fintech, but is hampered by draconian laws governing media and digital spaces. Netflix’s run-in with the Vietnamese authorities comes amid growing concern in countries around the world about taxes paid, or not, by US tech giants. Amazon, Google, and Facebook have all come under fire for paying seemingly negligible tax on huge revenues.Earlier this month, Spain said it is preparing legislation that would impose a five percent tax on platforms such Netflix, with the aim of using the funds to boost domestic film production.Apple has not yet responded to a request for comment. Which is the best TV under Rs. 25,000?

Netflix insisted Wednesday it was prepared to pay tax in Vietnam after a government minister accused the streaming giant of dodging its obligations to the communist nation.The information minister this week singled out Netflix and newcomer Apple TV for not paying tax, saying foreign platforms earn an estimated $44 million (roughly Rs. 300 crores) a year in revenues from a skyrocketing subscriber base across Vietnam.- Advertisement – “However today such a mechanism does not exist.”The streaming juggernaut’s entry into Southeast Asia has had a major impact on viewing habits. The massive popularity of the service has pushed Netflix to invest in locally produced shows and films, such as Vietnamese martial arts movie “Furie”.- Advertisement – “Some cross-border platforms have neither paid taxes nor operated in accordance with the laws, creating unfair competition,” Nguyen Manh Hung told Vietnam’s national assembly Tuesday.But a Netflix spokesperson told AFP the company complies with relevant Vietnamese laws and is in talks with authorities on the issue. “We are supportive of the implementation of a mechanism that will make it possible for foreign service providers like Netflix to collect and remit taxes in Vietnam,” they said in a statement. – Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

Croatia has met the conditions for two important economic and tourism projects with the United States

first_imgThe visa-waiver program means that Croatian citizens can travel to the United States without a visa for a maximum period of 90 days, for tourist or business reasons. The visa-free agreement for Croatian citizens should be signed in the coming months, as well as the abolition of visas, as Croatia has met all the conditions in this fiscal year, which ends in the United States on September 30. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on an official visit to Croatia today, and a meeting on cooperation and alliance between the two countries was held in Dubrovnik. The US Secretary of State confirmed that the conditions for two extremely important projects, which have been under development for decades, have been met – abolition of visas for Croatian citizens (visa-waiver) and signing an agreement on avoiding double taxation. By the way, only Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and Cyprus are the only members of the European Union that need a visa for the United States. Photo: US Embassy in Croatialast_img read more
