The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Taxation plans to implement an integrated e-tax system from 10 February 10 to improve tax service quality for taxpayers making tax declarations and payments and receiving refunds by making the processes faster and more convenient. The system will also help users look up tax records, notices of processing tax results, along with information and fees.
The department will stop providing online tax declaration services at http://kekhaithue.gdt.gov.vn and electronic tax payments at http://nopthue.gdt.gov.vn, connecting all to the systems at www.thuedientu.gdt.gov.vn. The objective is to help taxpayers access and manage all tax services on a single system.
According to the customs department, around 99% of import and export tax payments in Ho Chi Minh City are currently made online. Previously enterprises had to pay the taxes at the Treasury or a bank, take the payment receipt to customs authorities and wait. It would take two or three days to complete payments. Businesses no longer face a situation where even after payment of the taxes, the customs department is not aware and has to be updated separately.
