Some 96,208 enterprises in the capital city have successfully registered for and completed e-tax payments, accounting for 91.5 percent of total local enterprises, said the Hanoi Taxation Department on October 1.

According to Head of the desk on disseminating and supporting tax payer Nguyen Thi Hai Yen, e-tax payments have helped enterprises save time and costs compared to traditional payment methods, encouraging enterprises to actively participate in the new mode.

In order to create favourable conditions for enterprises to make e-tax payments, the department has advised sector and administration authorities to coordinate with tax offices to implement e-tax declarations and payments as well as developing training programmes for local organisations, enterprises and tax payers.

The department is also working with commercial banks to open seminars for local enterprises regarding e-tax payments with a view to evaluating the implementation process and introducing solutions to difficulties that could be encountered during the process.

To date, Hanoi is one of 25 localities nationwide that have achieved 90 percent of their enterprises implementing e-tax payments as per Government Resolution 19/2015, which requires the time to complete tax payments not to exceed 121.5 hours a year and the proportion of e-tax declarations among enterprises to be over 95 percent.-VNA
