HÀ NỘI — The General Department of Customs (GDC) on Monday signed a co-operation agreement with five commercial banks to implement a 24/7 e-tax payment scheme.
The banks include Vietcombank, Vietinbank, BIDV, MBBank and Techcombank.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, GDC Deputy General Director Nguyễn Dương Thái announced that the 24/7 e-tax payment scheme is piloted from Monday on the website: https://epayment.customs.gov.vn/epaymentportal/login. With the new service provided by the five banks, enterprises can access the website to pay tax.
Thái expects that the banks will continuously promulgate to make their customers aware of the new payment services.
Representatives of the banks also said that the application, which is a step taken by the customs agency to accelerate the reform of its procedures, helps them have a new product to support the best for customers.
With the new form of tax payment, enterprises can pay tax directly at anytime and anywhere with Internet access. The customs authority will directly support enterprises to make payment documents from the original data and minimise errors in money transfer procedures.
The form of tax payment will also ensure the integrity and confidentiality of all taxpayers’ information during the transaction and customise information fields in exchanging for one or more forms to reduce their working time with banks.
This scheme will help tax agencies reduce personnel for tax collection and simplify related processes. It will ensure that tax is correctly settled right after taxpayers fulfil their duties, hence avoiding mistaken coercion. It will also minimise information errors in tax forms besides increasing the degree of satisfaction of businesses and international investors.
The new service is the next reform step of the customs sector to help enterprises quickly clear goods and carry out extensive cross-sector reforms to reach the ASEAN 4 level of export and import facilitation, as guided by the government. — VNS
