Tax in Vietnam is a complicated problem and is one of company’s big concerns in business operation. According to Vietnam Law on Tax Administration, tax registration and tax declaration are two of core obligations.
For tax registration, Law on Tax Administration determines that tax registrants include: business organizations, households and individuals; individuals who have incomes liable to personal income tax; organizations and individuals responsible for withholding and paying taxes on taxpayers’ behalf and other organizations and individuals defined by tax law.
Time limit for tax registration in tax agencies is within ten working days after one of cases as the following:
– The registrants are granted business registration certificates or establishment and operation licenses or investment certificates;
– The registrants commence their business operation, for organizations not subject to business registration, or households and individuals subject to business registration but having not been granted business registration certificates;
– The responsibility for withholding and paying taxes on taxpayers’ behalf arises;
– The personal income tax liability arises;
– A claim for tax refund is made.
The result of tax registration is tax registration certificates. The content of this certificate determines tax identification number and related information.
