So they will not carry out procedures at the Hanoi Customs Department.
Therefore, in order to ensure the fulfillment of the target in collecting state budget, Hanoi Customs Department continues to implement measures to facilitate to enterprises; continue reviewing, grasping revenue sources and raising state budget; closely monitor the situation of enterprises that have to pay a large amount of state budget for promptly handling arising problems.
Especially, leaders of Hanoi Customs Department should instruct units to focus on solutions to strengthen administrative discipline; focus on educating and training of customs officers and staffs in the direction of professionalism. Also, strictly control in order to prevent new tax arrears.
Furthermore, ensuring the balance between facilitating enterprises to increase state budget and the state management in order to avoid loss of revenue, etc.
