HÀ NỘI — The budget revenue of the General Department of Customs (GDC) surpassed VNĐ261.1 trillion (US$11.5 billion), or 91.6 per cent of the 2017 target as of November 28.
The information was released on Thursday during a press conference held by the GDC. Budget collection for the whole year is targeted to touch VNĐ285 trillion. Collections of the export-import, special consumption and environmental protection taxes reached VNĐ101.7 trillion, while those of the value-added tax reached VNĐ183.3 trillion.
November budget revenue is estimated to reach VNĐ25 trillion.
According to Lưu Mạnh Tưởng, director of the Import-Export Tax Department, budget revenue in December every year tends to surge as enterprises usually boost the import of goods before the occasion of Tết (Lunar New Year). The department expects this month’s revenue to reach VNĐ26 trillion.
GDC forecasts that budget collection for the whole year will likely surpass the annual target of VNĐ285 trillion, to total VNĐ295 trillion.
From now until the end of the year, the department will instruct local customs departments to tighten the collection and disbursement of the State budget and tackle difficulties in tax policies in a timely manner, GDC said.
The GDC will also increase the implementation of post-customs clearance and inter-sectoral co-operation to prevent and detect trade fraud.
In turn, the local departments must propose measures to prevent losses and increase management by price consultation and price and tax code assessment.
The high revenue was also attributed to the effective instruction of the Party, National Assembly and Government and provinces’ implementation of plans to achieve annual national socio-economic development goals. — VNS
