To create momentum for businesses to overcome the crisis, the Government issued Decree No 92/2021/ND-CP last week detailing the implementation of Resolution No 406/NQ-UBTVQH15 of the National Assembly Standing Committee on a number of solutions to support businesses and people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Decree guides four groups of tax exemption and reduction solutions to support businesses and people to overcome difficulties caused by the impact of COVID-19.
These include reducing corporate income tax this year for businesses and organisations with a revenue of no more than VND200 billion and a decrease in revenue compared to 2019.
Tax will be exempt in the third and fourth quarters of the year for business households and individuals that have production and business activities in different locations affected by the COVID-19.
Along with that, value-added tax rate for groups of goods and services in industries and late payment interest arising last year and this year for businesses and organisations that incur losses last year will also be reduced.
