23,000 export shipments cleared

According to Binh Dinh Customs Department, in 2022, the Ministry of Finance assigned this unit to collect state revenue with an estimate of VND960 billion and General Department of Vietnam Customs assigns a target of VND1,010 billion. In order to effectively fulfill this task, besides assigning targets to each unit, from the beginning of 2022, Binh Dinh Customs Department developed and implemented revenue collection solutions, including assigning targets to its affiliated units.

Performing political tasks as businesses in the area are recovering from the pandemic and some import-export products have decreased, Binh Dinh Customs Department has built and proposed many specific solutions to strengthen coordination and support businesses.

Accordingly, promptly handling problems related to customs procedures, tax policies, tax management, accounting regime, tax refund and tax exemption regimes.

At the same time, focusing on reforming customs procedures and tax administration procedures to shorten the time for cargo clearance; regularly disseminating and training the business community on new policies; maintaining and coordinating with commercial banks to implement the 24/7 collection program.

As a result, in the first seven months of 2022, Binh Dinh Customs Department carried out clearance procedures for 28,136 declarations, an increase of 9.2% over the same period in 2021, with an import-export turnover of over US$2 billion. Notably, most of them are exports, with a total of over 23,000 declarations.

For tax calculation, Binh Dinh Customs Department directed units to regularly review, report and propose to amend reference prices that are no longer appropriate and add new items to the List of risk management on customs valuation; implement a one-time consultation pilot scheme, and use consultation results many times.

As a result, by the end of June 30, 2022, the unit has conducted eight consultation cases through online public services; granted five lists of tax exemption, adjusted four lists, and refused two lists of tax exemption.

In the first seven months of 2022, Binh Dinh Customs Department collected and paid VND630,036 billion to the state budget, reaching 65.6% of the current appropriation, reaching 62.4% of the target, dropping by 5.9% compared to the same period in 2021, In particular, the unit collected VND607,301 billion in Binh Dinh province, reaching 67.1% of the current appropriation; Phu Yen province earned VND22,735 billion, reaching 41.3% of the current appropriation.

Focusing on handling tax debt

According to Binh Dinh Customs Department, the revenue in Binh Dinh province grew well in this year. However, the revenue in Phu Yen province decreased significantly. Specifically, in Binh Dinh province, revenue from export duty increased compared to the same period last year, as businesses increased exports of wood chips and yellow sand. Along with that, enterprises importing wood, pharmaceutical materials, machinery and equipment and raw steel increased, resulting in a high increase in value-added tax revenue.

In Phu Yen province, export woodchips are a big source of budget revenue at Phu Yen Customs Branch, but from the beginning of 2022, there have been no shipments to carry out export procedures, the unit only has stable sources of revenue from traditional products, such as plastic beads, imported medicinal materials, exported gems, machinery and equipment from expansion projects.

Besides analyzing and evaluating revenue sources to have appropriate solutions, Binh Dinh Customs Department has focused on tax debt collection. The Department held a symposium and issued conclusions to specifically direct units to closely monitor the debt situation in order to take measures to urge and coerce each enterprise so that debt settlement could achieve the highest results.

For tax debts classified as tax debts that can be collected but the business has stopped operating for many years, the unit will continue to coordinate with relevant authorities to handle it in accordance with the regulations. For new tax debts arising in 2021, enforcement measures will be taken.

Recently, Quy Nhon port Customs Branch signed a decision on enforcement by stopping carrying out customs procedures for exported and imported goods of Hoang Vu Garment Export Co., Ltd. with the coerced tax of over VND5.6 billion. By the end of July, Binh Dinh Customs Department has recovered and processed over VND18 billion; advising Binh Dinh Provincial People's Committee to cancel debt for a case with a total debt of over VND433 million.

According to Binh Dinh Customs Department, in the last months of the year, the unit will continue to effectively implement the proposed plans and solutions, creating the most favorable conditions for the import-export activities of enterprises, striving to complete state budget revenue in 2022.
