Hanoi is set to simplify at least 20 percent of its tax payment procedures, effectively cutting 45.5 hours of tax filing and payment this year per entity.

More than 107,600 firms in the capital city have conducted e-tax declarations, or 96.5 percent of the total, said Director of the Hanoi Taxation Department Ha Minh Hai.

Dozens of tax payment training courses have been launched since the outset of this year.

From March 2 – April 4, the department answered more than 4,200 questions raised by over 3,600 taxpayers in the capital.

To make it more convenient, the department also opened 300 tax collection sites in collaboration with the State Treasury and commercial banks.-VNA
