One Client in Serious Visa Trouble

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I don't buy it, sorry.

Chinese guy starting a business, doesn't just go through normal procedures...then asks 'agent' who has to ask CEO denizens...nah.
What don't you buy? Jack R has been posting for years on both forums about doing such work as a fixer for clients.

From time to time I like to ask a bit of input here usually if I post is about the more unique clients or someone in deep water which is clinching at me for help, even if it's uncommon I got a couple of useful pm and contacts from lurkers and regular posters in the past.

Also writing something down helps clearing my mind, take a step back and try to find a solution from another angle.

Honestly most of the clients I deal with are regular people, if I post here is usually about a client that:

1) didn't want a NDA
2) has a somewhat unusual and interesting situation.
3) doesn't mind me posting online, after all if the situation was already dire there is nothing to lose from asking publicly.
4) usually won't pay unless I find a solution.

So the cases I talk about online are usually the more unique ones, not really a good representation of the averge clients I deal with regularly.

I think you guys would not be interested to hear about the NGO that doesn't know how to fill the documents for get products trough custom without paying custom duty or the company that wants to insure a crane... dull stories which do not need any public input.

I’d be interested to know this. I’ve never had to fill in any forms to avoid import tax. Just had to show the NGO license.

You have an NGO license? Can I buy you a beer?

Have you had your your NGO for a very long time?
Because the standard procedure requires that prior to receiving the the items, you must fill a document requesting the exemption at the custom office in vattanak tower that explains in detail what you will be importing including shipping weight, quantity etc...
They will approve the document with a stamp and with that document in hand plus your NGO license you can retrieve your items from customs.
I am referring to larger shipment not post office parcels.
I have a scanned copy of one of those documents if you wish to see it.

You can get NGO licenses from the men selling fire extinguishers or the man in the cat detector van, they're actually dog licenses with the word dog crossed out and NGO written in crayon. :lol:

Anyway regarding the previous post I strongly recommend to go through the right procedure,
Another NGO got hit by a serious tax bill because they couldn't provide the right paper when they had to renew their license.
The ministry essentially assumes that if you don't get your paperwork right you are using the NGO for import products and sell them; than they proceed to tax you accordingly, now the tax officers get a very large cut of their fines so they are very zealous and love to go through your old files.
