HANOI TAX DEPARTMENT TO SCRUTINISE TRANSFER PRICING IN 2020
The Hanoi Tax Department will scrutinise transfer pricing among foreign-invested enterprises in 2020, announcing it as its key task for the year.
Mai Son, director of the Hanoi Tax Department, made the statement at the press briefing on January 15.
Accordingly, the department will inspect foreign-invested enterprises (FIEs) who reported losses for years but still made business expansions, and those who have been conducting suspicious transactions.
In 2019, the Hanoi Tax Department made great achievements, with state budget collection hitting a five-year record high with tax collection reaching VND252.18 trillion ($10.96 billion), up 15 per cent on-year. Tax collection from manufacturing business rose 17 per cent on-year, up from the 11.2 per cent in 2016-2018.
2019 was also the second year that the tax department fulfilled its inspections by carrying out over 18,700 inspections and investigations, surpassing the target by 12 per cent with the total collection in arrears and fines of VND3.7 trillion ($160.87 million).
During the year, the Hanoi Tax Department will also promote IT application in tax management with online declarations and e-payment, among others.
This year, the department sets out six key tasks to fulfill the target.
The district is projected to feature five economic areas including a high-class ecological resort area, an ecotourism area combined with the protection of natural heritages; an urban area for cultural and entertainment services; an area for commerce and industry, high technology and logistics; and a reserve area for future expansion.
The ACC’s special meeting, initiated by Viet Nam as current ASEAN Chair, aimed to discuss prompt implementation of the Chair’s Statement on the bloc’s collective response to novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak released on February 14.
In January the surge continued, with the country attracting around $5.3 billion in FDI in the first 20 days of the month alone, an on-year improvement of nearly 180 per cent. Approximately $4.5 billion of the total is going into nearly 260 projects, with the remainder of the sum coming in the form of share purchases, capital contributions, and additional related investment.
Vietnamese lenders and fintech groups are catching up with international peers on kick-starting the economy and promoting cashless transactions in the face of the coronavirus outbreak, but greater advancement always comes with new risks.
