Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam National Petroleum Group (Petrolimex) is ready to issue e-invoices to customers from April 1, according to Deputy General Director Tran Ngoc Nam.

Nam said that in March, Petrolimex will hold training courses for its member units on the process of issuing e-invoices.

He said a pilot month of applying e-invoices in the group and Ha Son Binh petroleum company has finished. All problems have been tackled and the firm has finalised preparation work.

Petrolimex launched the e-invoice project on May 19, 2015 with the support of VNPT-Vinaphone-Daka joint venture, said Nam, adding that the firm’s database has been computerised to serve the issuance of electronic receipts.

Issuing e-invoices is expected to cut costs and make petroleum trade more transparent.

Customers can receive their receipts via email or by accessing Petrolimex’s website at http://hoadon.petrolimex.com.vn.

The invoices will be kept on the Petrolimex server for 10 years. This will also help management agencies access information and control petrol trade activities in Vietnam.-VNA
