Like the leading companies in telecom, banking, real estate, and automobiles, Saigon Co.op, the country’s leading retailer, also made it to the list of the country’s largest taxpayers last year.

The company said it scrupulously meets its tax obligations.

The General Department of Taxation announced the list of the 1,000 biggest tax payers in the country in Ha Noi last week.

Ha Noi and HCM City continued to lead in terms of the amount of tax paid and number of businesses.

Dong Nai and Binh Duong, highly industrialised provinces near HCM City, followed in that order.

More than 250,000 out of the country’s 600,000 businesses paid income tax last year.

The top 1,000 payers contributed 63 per cent of the total amount.

This is for the second year that the rankings have been announced. — VNS
