HÀ NỘI — Most petrol stations nationwide are ready to issue electronic invoices for each sale, Mai Sơn, deputy director of the General Department of Taxation, said at the Ministry of Finance’s press conference for the first quarter held in Hà Nội on Friday.

As of March 28, 15,762 petrol stations issue electronic invoices for each sale, or 98.9 per cent of the total number of petrol stations across the country. About 1.1 per cent of them have not yet had electronic invoices.

About 59 out of 63 cities and provinces nationwide have implemented over 90 per cent of the progress issuing electronic invoices, of which 40 localities are completing this issuance progress. 

Previously, implementing the Prime Minister’s direction, the Ministry of Finance directed tax authorities at all levels to implement solutions to issue electronic invoices for each sale at all petrol stations.

At the same time, the ministry has also issued an official dispatch to relevant ministries and branches, and localities requesting them to proactively coordinate closely and regularly with tax authorities in actively deploying synchronous and effective solutions to promote businesses and petrol stations to issue electronic invoices.

The General Department of Taxation has also issued eight official dispatches directing the localities’ taxation departments to strengthen management, inspection, supervision of deploying electronic invoice issuance for petrol retail activities.

Sơn said the taxation general department has requested the localities’ authorities to direct local agencies and departments to proactively coordinate closely with the general department to firmly deploy synchronous and effective solutions on promoting the issuance of electronic invoices. 

They have included diverse propaganda measures on legal regulations of the electronic invoices and benefits of issuing electronic invoices for each sale at petrol stations and penalties for violations in issuing the invoice during selling goods.

In addition, it has organised meetings with petroleum traders, petrol stations and solution providers to discuss effective solutions on implementing the issuance of electronic invoices for the businesses, and also meeting the State management requirements on petroleum trading.

The general department has established interdisciplinary working groups to work directly with petrol stations, and then developed suitable implementation plans for each area, enterprise and petrol station.

At the Government meeting in February, the Prime Minister assigned ministries, branches and localities to strengthen inspections and implement management and use of electronic invoices for petroleum business and retail activities in March.

The Prime Minister also assigned localities to coordinate with the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Industry and Trade to ensure appropriate measures are taken against businesses that do not implement the regulations by the end of this month.

They might be requested to temporarily suspend business operations or see business licenses and certificates revoked according to the provisions of law. —
