A Tax Receipt is issued to prove that the tax has been paid.
The 4% transfer tax is set out in Article 40 of the Law on Finance for the year 1995. In Phnom Penh, this tax is not assessed based on the true transacted value of the property but based on a schedule of price of property determined by the Phnom Penh Municipality.
The assessed value is usually based on the total number of square meters, the land's location, use etc. The tax is not based on the actual price for which the land is sold, rather it is based on the assessed value. For the land of more that 1200m² , the surplus is subject to unused land tax. For the land less than 1200m² , the unused land tax is not applicable. The time for the tax office to complete the calculation of transfer tax will depend on the location of the land and its size.
