SERVICE FEES FOR THE REGISTRATION OF TRUSTS, Prakas № 854 of the Ministry of Economy and Finance (“MEF”), 30 September 2019.
The purpose of this Prakas is to determine the level of fees for the registration of trusts in Cambodia. The registration and renewal fees include administrative and annual certification fees, the respective amounts for which are to be determined by the type and the value of the trust to be registered.
