In the context of on-going complicated and unpredicable development of the Covid-19 pandemic, which adversely impacts several businesses, the Government is developing a Draft Decree on extension of the time limit to pay value added tax, corporate income tax, personal income tax, land rents and water surface rents in 2022, which will be issued under simplified procedure. Some outstanding provisions of the Draft Decree (2nd Draft) are addressed in this article.
On June 1, 2021, the Ministry of Finance issued Circular 40/2021/TT-BTC guiding value added tax, personal income tax and tax administration of household businesses and individual businesses (Circular 40). Compared to Circular 92/2015/TT-BTC, Circular 40 has some changes in subject classification, tax calculation methods, determination of relevant organizations’ responsibilities, etc. Especially, Circular 40 has expanded the applicable subjects, typically individuals having income from digital information content products and services.
