Seatech last week announced the launch of Vietnam’s first online tax declaration service to local taxpayers in Vietnam.

Through the window:  licenced by the General Taxation Office, Seatech provides customers with a service to declare and submit tax documents to the local tax authorities. 

The window enables taxpayers including individuals and corporates to declare tax to local authorities and receive the results of their declaration from tax authorities anytime and anywhere. The service supports to all forms of tax declarations for multiple accesses of corporate and individuals with digital signatures. The service also provides archive services for tax declaration.

Nguyen Quang Minh, Seatech general director, said there were around 300,000 enterprises with tax payment responsibility in Vietnam and the service would support them in dealing with local authorities.

“We have cooperated with digital signature service providers and banks to provide perfect services to tax payers, changing the habits of tax payments,” said Minh.

On May 17, the prime minister issued Decision No. 732/QD-TTg formally approving the government's tax system reform strategy for  2011-2020.

An important target of this strategy is to build a modern, effective, and efficient tax industry with minimum of 60 per cent of enterprises using e-tax services and 50 per cent of them registering and declaring tax via the internet by 2015.

According to this strategy, the proportion of declarations automatically checked by the application software of tax agencies must reach at least by 95 per cent in 2015 and 100 per cent in 2020.
