Especially, a series of enterprises and business households in the fields of processing, transport, travel, services, restaurants, hotels, etc. in the province had to suspend activities or operate sporadically.
The provincial Taxation Department has received requests for tax payment extension from a lot of enterprises, applications for temporary suspension of business and tax exemption from many individuals and business households in the province.
By mid-April, nearly 30 businesses had applied for extension of tax and land rent payment. It was due to difficulties in production and business caused by the Covid-19 epidemic.

To assist enterprises and business households in overcoming difficulties, the provincial Taxation Department has directed functional divisions and regional and city Taxation Sub-departments to review and make lists to inform taxpayers of the contents of the Government's Decree 41/ND-CP dated April 8, 2020 on extending the deadline for payment of value added and personal income taxes imposed on individuals, groups of individuals, and business households and land rents so that taxpayers can proactively complete related dossiers.
According to statistics of tax bodies, up to 98% of taxpayers in the province are eligible for tax payment extension with a period of five months.
Tax payment extension will help enterprises and individual business households overcome difficulties and have an impetus to maintain production and business.
Along with implementing the contents of the Government's Decree 41, Hai Duong tax sector has also proactively suspended all planned inspections of enterprises in 2020 and intensified the processing of applications for refunding taxes first and carrying out checks later at the headquarters of tax bodies within the prescribed time, enabling enterprises to overcome difficulties.
