On January 18, 2023, the General Department of Vietnam Customs issues Decision No. 101/QD-TCHQ on approving the Project on “pilot e-tax payment on exported goods and imported goods through intermediary payment service providers”
In particular, taxpayers actively make payments at any place with the Internet, anytime, anywhere, by any means.
At the same time, regulatory bodies, save human resources, ensure safety in management, and simplify the tax collection and payment process. Ensure accurate deduction of tax debts in a timely manner as soon as taxpayers (including organizations and individuals involved in export and import) pay taxes, fees, and charges; do customs clearance/release of goods, support individuals on exit and entry with arising payables to make payments quickly and accurately.
In order to ensure that the system can be connected to the customs e-payment gateway, the license granted by the State Bank to an intermediary PSP must have at least 02 services:
- Electronic payment gateway service;
- Support service for authorized collection and payment
- Implementation time: January 2023.
The intermediary PSP shall send a written request to the General Department of Customs to participate in the pilot and be guaranteed by commercial banks coordinated with the General Department of Customs that the revenues remitted to the state budget through the intermediary PSPs transferred to the customs e-payment portal shall be remitted to the state budget as prescribed.
This Circular takes effect on January 18, 2023.
