International organizations operating in Afghanistan are facing many challenges. Among those challenges are maintaining business license, obtaining tax exemptions and tax clearance, and securing employee visas. On the other hand, government contractors are expected to strictly comply with Afghan tax laws and be ready for tax audits. In addition, audits by US government are increasingly focusing on contractors’ costs and compliance with federal regulations. These challenges require contractors to have well trained staff, clear operating procedures, and strong systems in place in their Afghanistan office. In this Webinar, we will be discussing some of the challenges, recent updates, and potential solutions.
