Under the provisions of Circular No. 15/2014 / TT-BCA dated April 4, 2014 of the Ministry of Public Security on vehicle registration (from August 1, 2020, it will be replaced by Circular No. 58/2020 / TT -BCA dated June 16, 2020) and Circular No. 102/2016 / TT-BQP dated June 29, 2016 of the Ministry of Defense on registration, management and use of motor vehicles within the Ministry of Defense, the vehicle owner must submit documents proving the origin of imported vehicles under the form described by the Ministry of Finance to the registry agency when carrying out the procedures for registering imported vehicles.

According to the Ministry of Finance, the Government hasissued a policy to require ministries and agencies to electronically connect and share data (without using paper documents) related to vehicles for the Ministry of Public Security to carry out the registration and the licensing for domestically manufactured and imported vehicles. The abolition of theorigin declaration in vehicle registration application is the basis and premise for the Ministry of Finance (the General Department of Customs) and the Ministry of Public Security to realize the above policy.

According to a survey conducted byCustoms, the actual time to carry out procedures for certifying the origin declaration (from preparation to certification result), depending on the number of vehicles registered on the customs declarations may take 2 to 5 working days.

After receiving the origin declaration certified by the customs agency, the enterprise will send one copy to the forwarding unit to send to the sales agent and keep acopy for archiving. After that, the sales agent provides the copy to the buyer of vehicles to implement the vehicle registration procedures and then the buyer will submit the copy declaration to the vehicle registry agency under the Ministry of Public Security. According to enterprises, in case of loss of the origin declaration, the procedure for re-certifying the origin declaration is complicated and takes a lot of time for the vehicle owner and customs agency.

Given the policy of reforming administrative procedures and creating favorable conditions for enterprises, the Ministry of Finance assessed that the abolition of the procedure for certifying the origin declaration will greatly benefit the State and the business community. According to preliminary calculations based on survey results from enterprises and reports by the provincial and municipal customs department, if the procedure for certifying the origin declaration is abolished, the customs agency will save hundreds of thousands of working hours per year and enterprises also save a lot of costs andmanpower.

Therefore, the Ministry of Finance proposed the Prime Minister to assign it to stop issuing andcertifying the origin declaration of imported cars, motorcycles and scooters. The electronic customs declaration is used as a basis for identifying vehicles that have gone through the import procedures. The time to stop issuing and certifying the origin declaration is expected fromJanuary 1, 2021. The Ministry of Finance is assigned to make specific decisions on the basis of presiding over and cooperating with the Ministry of Public Security to prepare conditions for technical infrastructure and information infrastructure to connectand exchange data of electronic customs declarations of the General Department of Customs with the vehicle registration and management system of the Ministry of Public Security.

The Ministry of Finance also amends and supplements Circular No. 38/2015 / TT-BTC and Circular No. 39/2019 / TT-BTC of the Ministry of Finance in the direction of requiring the customs declarant to fulfill information criteria of the vehicle (including: chassis number, engine number, number of seats,color, cylinder capacity, brand, type of vehicle), in accordance with requirements of the vehicle registry agency under the Ministry of Public Security; and abolishes Decision No. 2807 / QD-BTC dated November 11, 2009 promulgating and prescribing the origin declaration form and directs the General Department of Customs to abolish Official Letter No. 4995 / TCHQ-GSQL dated November 8, 2001 on the origin declaration of imported cars and motorbikes since the electronic customs declaration is used to replace the origin declaration of imported vehicles.

The Ministry of Finance also proposes the Prime Minister to assign the Ministry of Public Security to coordinate with the Ministry of Finance to prepare technical facilities, information infrastructure and build a data exchange system between the vehicle registry agency and the information system of the General Department of Customs to replace the origin declaration in a timely fashion.

The Ministry of Defense is assigned to amend the provisions in Clause 2, Article 16 of the Circular No. 102/2016 / TT-BQP dated June 29, 2016 of the Ministry of National Defense on the registration, management and use of motor vehicles within the Ministry of Defense in the direction that the origin declaration of imported vehicles in the application for aid vehicles is replaced by the customs declaration in 2020 and responsible for connecting to gaincustoms declaration information of involved vehicles.
