HÀ NỘI — Tax deferral policies are giving significant support to enterprises to overcome difficulties and recover production and business in the post-pandemic period, experts have said.
Passed on May 28, Decree 34/2022/NĐ-CP will give deferrals on about VNĐ125 trillion (US$5.4 billion) worth of taxes and land lease fees.
This was the fourth time enterprises were given tax deferrals since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Đậu Anh Tuấn, Head of the Legal Department under the Việt Nam Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said that there were several ways to support businesses to overcome difficulties, but the fastest was tax policies.
The timely tax deferral policy will support businesses in the post-pandemic recovery and development process while creating a spillover effect on the whole economy, Tuấn said.
Tuấn said the business community appreciated the Government’s support policies, such as tax and fee deferral, exemption, and reduction, as well as interest rate reduction.
However, it was important to simplify procedures and lower requirements to ensure the support policies were accessible to many businesses, Tuấn added.
According to Lý Phương Duyên from the Vietnam Academy of Finance, the tax deferral policy would soon have a direct impact on enterprises.
Duyên said that this was considered the most timely support measure compared to support through interest rates or other forms, which would take more time for verification.
Nguyễn Văn Thiện, director of garment company Thiên Oanh, said that the policy of tax deferral was timely, which helped businesses to have more cash flow to maintain production, create jobs and ensure stable incomes for workers.
Thiên said the policy helped ease the financial burden on enterprises, which was extremely important in that any enterprise must optimise resources to revive operation and business after a hard time during the pandemic. — VNS
