The General Department of Taxation (GDT) on Monday began the provision of electronic tax (eTax) services to all enterprises in the northern provinces of Bac Ninh and Phu Tho.

With the eTax system, businesses can access and manage all electronic tax services on a single system, rather than having to log into various applications.

Specifically, taxpayers only need to use one account and login to a system to use all services and manage all tax records, without changing the page address or logging in again.

This will help taxpayers easily complete the steps in the process of tax declaration, payment, tax refund and search of tax records and information, according to the GDT.

For large enterprises, apart from a main account of each tax code, an enterprise can create additional accounts for various positions in the enterprise such as director, chief accountant and accounting, which will help monitor the responsibility of members in a flexible way.

In addition, the eTax system has a look-up function, so taxpayers can look up tax records sent to the tax office and check the results of the tax processing.

For businesses that have already been using the tax authorities’ tax filing systems, all information of transaction accounts and business records will be automatically transferred to the eTax system to continue using the services. The taxpayers will not have to re-register.

According to the GDT, when the eTax system is officially put to use, enterprises will stop using the old electronic tax declaration and payment system.

Tax authorities have also sent taxpayers specific instructions so that they will be able to use the new system.

The centralised one-stop shop will be on held on a trial basis in the two provinces until March 10, 2018. — VNS
