According to Mr. Tuan, the GDVC has issued the official letter 1237/TCHQ-TXNK dated 8th March 2018 to instruct provincial and municipal Customs Department to implement in accordance with provisions on examination of Customs valuation. However, the GDVC will review the calculation and the method of addling into Customs valuation and issue the official letter to specifically instruct for the calculation of each additional fee into Taxable value on imported good.
Responding to the Official letter sent by Vietnam Logistics Association (VLA) to the GDVC on provisions of adding CIC fee, Cleaning Container fee and D/O into Customs valuation, Deputy Director of Import and Export Duty Department said that the Department received the proposal of VLA. With the spirit of receiving reasonable proposals, the Department would review to report to senior leader of the GDVC for the implementation- Mr. Tuan emphasized.
It is known that in the official letter sent to the GDVC, VLA proposed to abolish D/O fee out of the additions when determining the Taxable value on imported goods and only declare Clearing Container fee in the additions.

In addition, VLA also proposed that the GDVC needed to work with the General Department of Taxation to unify the VAT for the additions such as CIC/EIS fee, D/O, cleaning container fee. Because, according to the law on VAT, the Ocean Freight (O/F) is subject to a VAT tax rate of 0%. Therefore, under the provisions of VAT Law and the General Department of Taxation guiding enterprises engaging in international transport, the O/F, EXW is subject to 0% tax rate and other fees such as THC, D/O, CIS and Cleaning Container fee is subject to tax rate of 10 %.
Also, VLA has proposed the GDVC not to implement post clearance audit and recover declarations which have not declared additional fees such ac CIS, D/O, Cleaning Container fee, etc., before Official Letter 1237/TCHQ-TNTX dated 8th March 2018 is issued.
