They include Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Quang Ninh, Bac Ninh, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Dong Nai, Binh Duong, Quang Ngai, Da Nang, Khanh Hoa, Ha Nam Ninh, Lao Cai, Ha Tinh Long An, Binh Dinh, Nghe An, Cao Bang, Ha Giang, Dak Lak, Gia Lai - Kon Tum, Binh Phuoc, An Giang, and Kien Giang.
Of these units, the Department with biggest increase was the Quang Ninh Customs Department, which increased by 2,800 billion VND, bringing the total collection target of 8,800 billion VND. The Hanoi Customs Department increased by 2,000 billion VND, bringing the total collection target of 22,800 billion VND, followed by the Bac Ninh Customs Department with an increase of 1,600 billion VND, bringing the total collection target of 9,500 billion VND. The Binh Duong Customs Department added 1,100 billion VND, raising the total of receivables to 12,500 billion VND. The Ho Chi Minh City Customs Department must increase by 1,000 billion VND, raising the total collection target to 110,000 billion VND. The remaining units increased from a few tens to several hundred billions of VND.
It is reported that this adjustment was approved by the General Department of Vietnam Customs based on the situation of State budget revenue in the first 6 months of 2017 at each unit and export and import activities in each locality.
According to the calculations of the Import-Export Duty Department, in order to complete the State budget revenues in 2017, in the second half of 2017, the Customs has to collect 144,000 billion VND, equivalent to 24,000 billion VND per month. To complete the target of 290 trillion VND, in the second half of the year, the Customs must collect 149 trillion VND, an average of 24,850 billion VND per month, an increase of 1,350 billion VND over the first half of 2017 (23,500 billion VND).
Therefore, in order to reach the whole year's budget collection target, the General Department of Vietnam Customs has required the provincial and municipal Customs Departments to focus on preventing the revenue loss through the value, especially on goods of high value and high tax rates such as: cars, motorbikes, wine, beer, cloth, household electronics, etc.
At the same time, the Customs shall intensify the inspections at the stage of Customs clearance and Customs post-clearance audits for goods’ names, codes and tax rates in order to promptly detect and handle violations; arrange human resources to prevent and combat smuggling and commercial fraud effectively, contributing to reducing budget deficit.
