VAT rates 2020-21 to taxable import or taxable supply in Bangladesh

July 6, 2020
VAT Rates 2020

What are the VAT rates 2020-21 for taxable import or taxable supply in Bangladesh? It is very important to know the rates to comply with the Value Added Tax and Supplementary Duty Act 2012. But most important to know about withholding VAT.

We have an online tax training course on ‘Withholding VAT – All about VDS’ as well as most important tax courses for accounts and finance people working in corporate sector. If you are looking for best tax course at low price then our tax courses are perfect for you.

However, I have accumulated all the rates of VAT for the financial year 2020-21. Hope, it will be very helpful for your daily corporate life.

Like VAT rates, I have also published TDS rates 2020-21 with section references and SD rates 2020-21 and VAT exempted goods and services 2020-21 in this blog. You may download PDF copy of these resources by visiting the respective article.

The reduced VAT rate which also called truncated VAT rate or specific amount of tax in relation to any goods or services are specified in the THIRD SHCEDULE of the Value Added Tax and Supplementary Duty Act 2012.

So, the third schedule is very important for the accounts people in their day to day corporate life because they have to deduct VAT at source during the time of payment. Besides the Third Schedule, a separate SRO 149 has been issued on 11 June 2020 which includes all about VDS. This SRO is very important for the accounts people to comply with withholding VAT. Based on this SRO, I have prepared the below video for you.

The VAT rates 2020-21 and the specific amount of tax may change time to time as circulated by the National Board of Revenue through SRO which are not included here. If any VAT rate 2020-21 or specific amount differ with this blog then please see the NBR separate SRO for the updated rates.

After proposing the Finance Bill 2020, I have also published VAT and SD major changes in this blog as well as made a video which is embedded below for you.

Please rotate your screen of smartphone for easily readable view of the below table. You may download PDF copy of this full VAT rates 2020-21 and carry it in your bag or fix it in front of your desk.
