VCN – The General Department of Taxation issued documents to request local tax departments to launch the “lucky invoice” program.
|The General Department of Taxation has piloted the program “Lucky Invoices” on the database of e-invoices with the tax authority’s code.|
During the period from September 5, 2022 to September 20, 2022, the Tax Department prepares human resources, and work plans, and reviews invoice data that is eligible to participate in the “lucky Invoice” program under its management. From September 26, 2022 to October 5, 2022, the Tax Department coordinated with the General Department of Taxation to test the functionality and pilot the application. At least, by the end of October 15, 2022, the Tax Department will organize the selection of “lucky Invoices” of the second quarter of 2022 and announce the winners. By the end of November 15, 2022, the Tax Department organizes a ceremony to award prizes to the winners of the “lucky invoice” of the second quarter of 2022.
For the next “lucky Invoices” selection periods, no later than the 15th of the first month of the following quarter, the Tax Department will organize the selection of “lucky Invoices” for the previous quarter, announce the winners and organize a ceremony to award the prizes to the winner within 30 days from the date of announcement of the winner.
According to Mrs. Nguyen Thi Lan Anh, Director of Tax Administration Department on Small and Medium Enterprises, Business households and individuals, the selection of “lucky Invoices” is done by each tax department based on the principle of a random selection of invoices of taxpayers managed by the Tax Department on the centralized e-invoice system of the Tax Department.
The program will apply to electronic invoices with tax authority’s code that have full buyer identification information (tax code/Citizen identity card/ID card/passport). It is excluded: canceled invoices, adjusted invoices, replacement invoices, and invoices with identical buyer and seller tax code information. Each invoice is selected only once, ensuring that the selection of winning invoices is objective, public, and transparent, and under the close supervision of the Supervisory Board.
The General Department of Taxation also required tax departments to develop communication plans and actively coordinate with press agencies, radio stations, television stations, branches and representative offices of Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Vietnam (VCCI) to disseminate the benefits of taking invoices and the objectives of the “lucky invoices” program. Also, communicating during the announcement ceremony of the results ensures widespread dissemination to the people in the area.
