ABA Bank offers tax collection via multiple channels
After signing the MOU with the Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF) and successful testing of the service, ABA Bank is delighted to announce that it now accepts tax payments on behalf of the General Department of Taxation (GDT) through various platforms depending on the tax type.
ABA customers can now pay their Road Tax remotely using the GDT Taxpayer app. All they need to do is to select ABA PAY at the payment screen of the GDT Taxpayer app, and ABA Mobile will be automatically launched on the customer’s smartphone to process the payment using an ABA account. In the near future, GDT and ABA will expand the service to include Annual Property Tax.
Taxpayers can also use the e-Tax Service on the GDT’s official website www.tax.gov.kh to pay most tax types online. Powered by the PayWay online payment platform from ABA Bank, the website now allows businesses of any size to pay monthly and annual enterprise taxes, business registration tax and audit tax, while individuals can declare their rental tax on land and house and online tax on vehicle transfer without travelling to or queuing at counters. The website also enables taxpayers to generate barcodes via e-Filing/Pre-filing by filling in tax declaration details into the GDT system on selected tax types, such as Tax on Income (TOI).
Additionally, ABA customers can pay the following taxes at counters in all ABA branches across the country:
- Tax on Means of Transportation,
- Property Tax, and
- Enterprise Tax, which includes monthly taxes (Salary Tax, WHT, Prepayment Tax, VAT, etc.) and annual taxes (Income Tax, Patent Tax, etc.).
With dedicated Tax Collection counter at every branch and free of charge service, ABA customers can now fulfill their tax obligations conveniently and securely.
Mey Polin, Chief Business Development Officer at ABA Bank commented, “We are pleased to become a collection partner on tax revenue collection with the government agencies. The expansion of convenient, flexible, and reliable means of payment will potentially create value for taxpayers. The tax revenue collection will be increasingly important as one of the main sources of revenue streams for the government, contributing to the country development. Thus, this is regarded a win-win solution for all stakeholders while creating an effective and transparent cashless payment system for Cambodia.”

Playing its role in the socio-economic development of the country, ABA Bank understands the importance of tax paying and fulfilling obligations as a properly registered and operating financial institution. As such, the Bank was named one of the largest taxpayers in Cambodia in 2020 and received Letters of Appreciation from Samdech Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of Cambodia, and H.E. Kong Vibol, Director-General of the GDT, that praise the Bank’s contribution to the development of the national economy. The Bank demonstrated commitment and transparency in good corporate tax governance by meeting its obligations on tax payments.
As a result of its strong dedication to tax compliance, ABA Bank also received “GOLD” Certificate of Tax Compliance from the GDT in December 2020, with a 2-year validity period for the financial years 2021 and 2022.
