Investment Incentives
Investment Incentives in Bangladesh
In order to encourage the inflows of FDI the government of Bangladesh offers one of the most liberal investment policies and attractive packages of fiscal, financial and other incentives to foreign entrepreneurs in South Asia. Major incentives to stimulate private sector direct investment are listed below.
Tax exemptions
Generally five to seven years' tax exemptions are available for many business investments. However, for electric power generation tax exemptions are provided for up to 15 years.
Duty
No import duty is applicable for export oriented industry. For other industries it is 5% ad valorem.
Income tax
Double taxation can be avoided in most cases as the country (Bangladesh) benefits from many bilateral investment agreements. Exemptions of income tax up to three years for the expatriate employees in industries are specified in the relevant schedules of the income tax ordinance.
Remittances
Facilities for full repatriation of invested capital, profits and dividends are the norm in most situations
Exit
An investor can wind up an investment either through a decision of an annual or extraordinary general meeting. Once a foreign investor completes the formalities to exit the country, he or she can repatriate the net proceeds after securing proper authorization from the central bank (Bangladesh Bank).
Ownership
Foreign investors can set up ventures, either wholly owned or in joint collaboration, with local partners.
Investing in the stock market
Foreign investors are allowed to participate in initial primary offerings (IPOs) without any regulatory restrictions. Also, incomes from dividends are tax-exempt for investors.
