Vietnam VAT Refund Claim Assistance

While technically many companies should be qualified for corporate VAT refund despite the numerous criteria, VAT refund claim in practice can well be a daunting and lengthy process, many of which go  without success. The battle is becoming more and more difficult, given Vietnam’s government is striving to increase tax revenues to boost the economy.

For many companies that export substantially at zero VAT rate, while having huge input VAT, the inability to claim the input VAT can seriously undermine the business’ operating cashflow. We are here to help you ease that cashflow constraint. We can help you make sure your firm is eligible for each and every criterion of  VAT refund, guide you through the arduous documentation process, liaise and make a case with the taxation authority, and follow up until a successful refund (the actual money transfer, not just a Decision in paper).
