According to Customs News reporters on the morning of 1st April, some Tax Branches like Cau Giay, Bac Tu Liem, Thanh Xuan of Hanoi Tax Department, due to the bad weather, the number of taxpayers coming to implement tax finalization was not high. Therefore, procedures were processed quickly and the volume of tax dossiers processed successfully was high, hence most taxpayers were very satisfied.
By the middle of the afternoon, the number of people arriving to implement tax finalization was higher. However, the implementation of tax finalization was still organized methodically and that helped to reduce pressure for both taxpayers and tax officials.

Ms. Nguyen Thuy Trang who conducted tax finalization at Cau Giay Tax Department said that completing personal income tax finalization, under the guidance of tax officials, took less than 15 minutes to complete.
“I have a clear sense of the day-to-day change in administrative reforms of the tax authorities. Instead of having to queue for tax finalization like many years ago, now it is just one click to submit tax finalization dossiers. This helps reduce time and effort for businesses”, Ms. Trang said.

According to representatives of Tax Departments, the taxpayers' sense of compliance has improved year by year, reflected in faster and better quality tax payment dossiers.
The tax authorities recommend that taxpayers making tax finalization on time will be more beneficial because even if the deadline is not yet imposed, they only need to be warned and the tax obligations of the enterprise will be "stained” which adversely affects reputation and brand.
