Revenue from domestically manufactured and assembled cars with less than 24 seats accounted for 17.42% of special consumption tax revenue and increased 42.08% year-on-year due to the increase in volume of cars sold in December 2020, up 36% year-on-year to enjoy the support policy under Decree 70/2020/ND-CP (50% reduction of registration fees for domestically manufactured and assembled cars applied until December 31, 2020).

The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic reduced tax revenues over the same period. Of which, some tax revenues recorded lower growth rates over the same period, showing the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, such as income tax revenue from wages reduced by 9.2% (increased by 17.4% in 2020) and revenue from production and business activities of individuals increased by 4.85% (it jumped by 8.48% in 2019).

One remarkable point is that there are 3,309 HCM-based firms that have re-operated businesses, up 119.58%.
