Tax on property gains coming

Vietnam will impose a tax of 25 percent on capital gains in property transactions as it moves to curb skyrocketing prices and speculation, the National Assembly, or parliament, said.

The tax, in addition to a 2-percent transfer tax already in place, would be applicable from January 2009, the office of the one-party legislature said in a report seen on Wednesday.

Vietnam's lawmakers have approved a 20 percent tax on income from the country's rapidly growing stock market.

The measure, approved by the National Assembly on Tuesday, will take effect in January 2009.
