HCMC Tax Department: very difficult to control Uber
The HCMC Tax Department said Uber Vietnam is a firm with advisory activities, management of the Dutch Uber and gets money from the Netherlands for activities in Vietnam.
The Department said that Uber Vietnam uses software of Uber Netherlands to regulate operations and card payments with transport firms so it is very difficult to control.
Uber Vietnam has just declared corporate income tax on cost management paid by Uber Netherlands for their job of managing customers, answering questions of the Uber customers and individual income tax. The entire transport management is managed by Uber Netherlands.
The HCM City Tax Department said taxi Uber had not made tax declarations of taxi operations in HCM City and the department will take measures to force Uber to pay taxes.
The HCM City Tax Department also said in the future if Uber continues to be silent, the tax authorities will make the next steps. Because all businesses must pay tax, there is no reason that Uber cannot perform tax obligations.
According to the HCMC Tax Department, Vietnam is not the first business market of Uber, therefore Uber is very experienced in business organization, establishment, making contracts with taxi, taxes and other activities.
