E-invoice system launched to save business costs, increase transparency

An e-invoice system was put into operation this morning in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister Le Minh Khai.


In the first stage, the system will used by six cities and provinces, namely Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City, Binh Dinh, Hai Phong, Quang Ninh, and Phu Tho where the number of enterprises account for 60 percent of Viet Nam’s total operating enterprises and 70 percent of invoices nationwide.

To prepare for the launch of the e-invoice system, the General Department of Taxation under the Ministry of Finance opened e-invoice development centers located in its headquarters and local taxation departments of the aforesaid localities.

In the second stage starting from April 2022, the e-invoice system will be deployed to other 57 cities and provinces to make sure all enterprises use e-invoices by the end of June next year.

Statistics show the rates of online tax registration, online tax declaration, online tax payments and online tax refunds respectively reached 100 percent, 99.9 percent, 99 percent, and nearly 98 percent./.
