II. BASES FOR REGISTRATION FEE CALCULATION, DECLARATION AND PAYMENT

1. The bases for registration fee calculation are the registration fee calculation price and the registration fee rate (%) to be determined as follows:

The payable registration fee amount

=

Registration fee calculation price

x

The registration fee rate (%)

The payable registration fee amount according to the above calculation method shall be 500 million (five hundred million) dong/ a property/ a registration time at most. Particularly the production/business workshops (including land attached to workshops) shall be included in the workshops within the premise of a production and business establishment; if such production and business establishment registers the ownership and use rights once or in many times, the entire workshop in the same premise of a production and business establishment shall be subject to the highest registration fee level of 500 million dong.

For example: Company A has five workshops in a premise of 100,000 m2; the total value of all five workshops (including land) in the premise is 150,000 million dong and the value of each workshop is 30,000 million dong, the registration fee shall be determined as follows:

- If Company A declares and pays the registration fee in lump sum, the registration fee amount is determined as 150,000 million dong x 1% = 1,500 million dong and Company A shall only have to pay 500 million dong as the registration fee.

- If Company A makes the registration fee declaration and payment in five times (each time for one workshop), the payable registration fee amount for the first time shall be 300 million dong (30,000 million x 1%); the payable amount for the second time shall be 200 million dong (instead of 300 million dong); for the subsequent registration fee declarations for 3 remaining workshops, Company A shall not have to pay the registration fee (as it has already been fully paid the registration fee, as prescribed)

2. The registration fee calculation price is the value of the property liable to registration fee according to the domestic market price at the time of registration fee calculation.

The registration fee calculation price for a number of specific cases is stipulated as follows:

a) For land, it is the land price set by the Peoples Committees of provinces and centrally-run cities according to the land price bracket prescribed by the Government.

The land price for registration fee calculation

=

The land areas liable to registration fee

x

The land price per square meter (m2)

- The land area liable to registration fee is the entire area of the land in the premise under the lawful use right of the organization or individual that registers its use with the competent State body.

- The per-m2 land price is the price set by the Peoples Committees of the provinces and centrally-run cities (hereafter referred collectively to as the provincial Peoples Committees) and applicable in the localities and the distribution coefficient for each floor (with regard to land for construction of condominium for many households, if any) according to the land price bracket prescribed by the Government (regardless of whether the actual transferred land price is larger or smaller). A number of specific cases shall be applied as follows:

+ For land attached with houses under the State ownership and sold to the current tenants under the Governments Decree No.61/CP of July 5, 1994, the registration fee calculation price is the actual sale price inscribed on the house/land sale invoice (of the type issued by the Finance Ministry) under the decisions of the Peoples Committees of the provinces or centrally-run cities.

+ For land assigned by the State in forms of bidding or auction (which are organized by the State), the registration fee calculation price shall be the bid winning price or the auction price actually inscribed on the invoice.

b) For other properties (besides the property being land stated at Point a above), the registration fee calculation price shall be the actual value calculated according to the market price at the time of registration fee calculation. The registration fee calculation price for a number of specific cases shall be determined as follows:

b1-

The house price for registration fee calculation

=

The house areas liable to registration fee

x

The per-square meter price

- The house area liable to registration fee shall be the entire area of the flooring space (including area of the support construction) of an apartment (for condominium houses) or a building under the lawful ownership of the organization or individual that has registered the ownership with the competent State body.

- The per-m2 house price is the actual value according to the market price for each square meter of the flooring space of the house according to its grade and the actual quality of the house at the time of registration fee declaration. Where the house is received together with land, the house price shall be determined as the house-land price (including both land and house) minus (-) the land price set by the provincial Peoples Committees as stated at Point a above. Particularly, the price for calculation of registration fees of houses under the State ownership and sold to the current tenants under the Governments Decree No.61/CP of July 5, 1994 shall be the actual sale price inscribed on the invoice of house sale by decisions of the provincial Peoples Committees (including cases where the subjects enjoy preferences with non- payment for house and/or land purchase, such house and/or land shall not liable to registration fee).

b2- For properties bought directly from establishments licensed to produce and/or assembly them in the country (called collectively as production establishments), it is the actual payment price (the sale price included with the value added tax) inscribed on lawful sale invoice.

Organizations and individuals that buy goods from the sale agents which directly sign agency contracts with production establishments and sell goods at the prices set by the production establishments are also considered as having bought such properties directly from the production establishments. For this case, the production establishments shall have to inform in writing the tax agencies of the localities where the agents sell goods of the sale price of each kind of goods belonging to the properties liable to registration fee in each period. The tax offices shall compare the sale prices inscribed on sale invoices issued by the agents to customers with the sale prices according to the price notices of the production establishments; if they are compatible, the registration fee shall be calculated according to the actual payment price. Where the sale price inscribed on the sale invoice issued by the sale agent to the customer is lower or higher than the sale price notified by the production establishment, it shall be determined according to the table of registration fee calculation minimum prices set by the provincial Peoples Committees.

b3- For properties bought with installment payment, it is calculated according to the lumpsum sale price, with the value added tax on such properties included therein (not calculating the installment payment interests).

b4- For properties bought by mode of bidding or auction in strict accordance with the law provisions on bidding and auction (including the purchase of confiscated goods which are sold out), the registration fee calculation price shall be the bid winning price, the auction price or the actual purchase price of confiscated goods inscribed on sale invoices.

b5- For the properties mentioned at Points b1, b2 and b3 above, if the actual value cannot be determined according to the market price or the price inscribed on the vouchers is not compatible to the market price at the time of registration fee calculation, it shall be determined according to the registration fee calculation minimum price index set by the provincial Peoples Committees (except for cases prescribed at b2). For the properties the provincial Peoples Committees have not yet prescribed the minimum prices for registration fee calculation, it shall be determined according to the market prices of the corresponding types of properties or determined as being the import price at the border gate (CIF) plus (+) the import tax, the special consumption tax (if any) and the value added tax according to the regime prescribed for the corresponding types of property (regardless of whether they are payers or non-payers of tax).

Basing themselves on the above guidance, the Peoples Committees of the provinces and centrally-run cities shall determine and issue the registration fee calculation minimum price index applicable to their respective localities according to the market prices in each period. In case of necessity, the provincial/municipal Peoples Committees may authorize in writing the provincial/ municipal Tax Department directors to decide the promulgation of registration fee calculation prices for a number of properties such as ships, boats, cars, motorbikes, hunting guns, sport guns, and after the promulgation, it must be reported to the Finance Ministry.

3. The registration fee rate (%) is prescribed as follows:
