DFDL's Overview

DFDL established its office in Phnom Penh in January 1995, as the first officially authorized foreign investment advisory and tax firm in Cambodia. DFDL is licensed as an investment company by the Council for the Development of Cambodia and the Cambodian Investment Board. We are also registered as a private limited company with the Ministry of Commerce. Under these licenses and registrations, we are permitted to provide business consulting, investment and tax advisory services of an international nature.

On 1 March 2016, DFDL and Sarin & Associates joined forces and established a commercial association and cooperation in order to form a new business transactions platform to serve clients with interests in Cambodia and across the expanding ASEAN marketplace.

DFDL and Sarin & Associates have worked together for over ten years in Cambodia. Sarin & Associates has long been recognized for its outstanding legal advice, providing advice to companies in Cambodia in several sectors, such as telecommunication, energy, retail, real estate, financial services, banking, etc.

Our clients are major international and Asian foreign investors in Cambodia, including large foreign and Asian financial institutions.
