To ensure the State revenue, the General Department of Customs requests customs units to follow Directive 439/CT-TCHQ dated February 11, 2022 on the implementation of solutions to facilitate trade, improve the effectiveness of state management, and prevent revenue loss in the state budget collection task in 2022.
Moreover, customs units are required to actively review comments from relevant units to complete the draft Directive of the General Department of Customs on strengthening tax exemption, reduction, refund and non-tax collection for import and export goods in compliance with the provisions of the law on tax and tax administration.
