There has never been a year where the Vietnamese auto market has experienced as many turbulence as in 2021, domestic automobile production and assembly is an area affected by the COVID-19 pandemic that requires support from the State.

Accordingly, so that the extension of the deadline for paying excise tax in 2022 for domestically manufactured or assembled cars does not lead to an adjustment of the state budget revenue estimate and is consistent with the current time, the Ministry of Finance Projected finance submitted to the Government: Extension of the tax payment deadline for payable excise tax amounts arising in the tax period of June, July, August and September 2022 for domestically manufactured or assembled automobiles.

Because this is an urgent solution that needs to be issued immediately to promptly support domestic automobile manufacturers and assemblers, the Ministry of Finance has submitted to the Government for permission the Decree to take effect from the date of signing.

Based on the production and business situation and payment of special consumption tax for the whole year of domestic automobile manufacturers and assemblers in recent years as follows: In 2019 it was 29,358 billion VND (average 2,450 billion VND/ month); in 2020 is 31,765 billion VND (average 2,650 billion VND/month) and in 2021 it is 33,900 billion VND (average 2,800 billion VND/month). Thus, the average amount of tax paid to the state budget ranges from VND 2,450 billion to VND 2,800 billion/month.

With the assumption of implementing Law No. 03/2022/QH15, since the excise tax rate on battery electric vehicles has a low tax rate, it is enough to increase the consumption demand for electric vehicles. Gasoline cars will be replaced by electric cars, which is expected to reduce budget revenue by about 2,000-3,000 billion VND, an average of 170-250 billion VND per month.

The total amount of excise tax that is expected to arise is extended for 4 periods, from the June tax period to the September tax period, is about 9,300-11,400 billion VND.. chn
