Hanoi (VNA) – The General Department of Taxation has announced it has finished refining the pilot online-based tax payment service (E-Tax) for enterprises.

The service will be made available in the northern provinces of Bac Ninh and Phu Tho from December 11, 2017 – March 10, 2018, enabling firms to access all taxation services in a single system.

Large-scale businesses will be able to open accounts for other positions such as directors and chief accountants apart from main accounts to flexibly monitor their responsibilities.

Users will be able to search their tax payment history, tax obligations and notifications about taxation status.

Once the E-tax portal is put into use, firms are being advised to stop using the old tax filing and payment system.

The department also sent guidelines about the new system to tax payers.-VNA
