SPECIFIC PROVISIONS

Article 5. Rate of fee

The rate of the road use fee is defined in the schedule in Appendix 01 to this Circular.

Fee collectors shall round the fee amount payable with small change in the manner that an amount with a change of less than VND 500 is rounded down while a change of VND 500 to less than VND 1,000 is rounded to VND 1,000.

Article 6. Calculation and payment

1. For the automobiles registered under organizations and individuals in Vietnam (except the vehicles of police and national defense forces as defined in Section 2 of this Article).

The road use fee shall be levied on an initially inspected vehicle from the date of issue of the certificate of registration. The road use fee shall be levied on a vehicle converted or transferred from an organization to an individual (or vice versa) from the date of conversion or the date of change to ownership as shown in the vehicle’s new registration card.

The road use fee shall be levied per year, per month or at inspection intervals.  Registry agencies shall issue road use stamps that match the duration paid for. The process occurs in the following manner:

a) Declaration and payment of the fee at inspection intervals

a.1) For automobiles inspected at 1-year or shorter intervals: vehicle owners shall pay the road use fee for the duration of the entire inspection interval and receive a road use stamp that matches the duration paid for.

Example 1: Mr. A’s car is at a 6-month interval (from January 01, 2016 to June 30, 2016). On January 01, 2016, Mr. A has his car inspected and pays the road use fee to the registry agency. The registry agency inspects the car, collects the road use fee and issues a 6-month road use stamp.

a.2) For automobiles inspected at intervals of more than 01 year (18, 24 and 30 months): vehicle owners shall pay the road use fee per year (12 months) or for the duration of the entire inspection interval (18, 24 and 30 months).

If the fee is paid for the duration of the inspection interval (18, 24 and 30 months), the registry agency shall issue a road use stamp commensurate with the inspection interval.

If the fee is paid per year (12 months), registry agencies shall issue a road use stamp that match the paid duration of 12 months. At the end of the paid duration (12 months), the vehicle owner shall pay the fee to the registry agency and receive a stamp (for the duration of another 12 months or the remaining length of the inspection interval).

Example 2: Mr. B’s car is inspected at a 30-month interval (from January 01, 2016 to June 30, 2018). On January 01, 2016, Mr. B has his car inspected. Mr. B is given the option to pay the fee for 01 year (12 months) or for the entire inspection interval (30 months).

If Mr. B pays the fee for the entire inspection interval, the validity of the road use stamp shall be 30 months.

If Mr. B pays the fee per year, the registry agency shall issue a road use stamp valid for 12 months. At the end of 12 months on January 01, 2017, Mr. B has to pay the road use fee for another 12 months (or for the remaining 18 months of the inspection interval) and receives the road use stamp commensurate with the duration paid for (12 months or 18 months). If paying the fee for a duration of 12 months, Mr. B shall, on January 01, 2018, pay the fee for the remaining 06 months (from January 01, 2018 to June 30, 2018) and receive a 6-month road use stamp. On July 01, 2018, Mr. B shall have his car inspected and pay the fee for the next interval.

a.3) If an owner has his vehicle inspected earlier or later than the deadline prescribed, the registry agency shall inspect the vehicle and determine the road use fee for a successive duration that spans from the end of the duration previously paid for to the end of the subsequent inspection interval (if the subsequent inspection interval exceeds 12 months, the vehicle owner may pay for the duration of up to 12 months or the entire inspection interval).   If the duration to be paid for does not constitute a full month, the fee amount payable shall be calculated by multiplying the result of the division of such deficient duration by 30 days with the fee rate for 01 month.

Example 3 on early inspection: Mr. C’s car is inspected at a 6-month interval from March 01, 2016 to August 31, 2016. Mr. C had his car inspected on March 01, 2016 and paid the fee for 06 months. The periodic deadline for Mr. C’s car inspection is August 31, 2016; however, Mr. C somehow has his car inspected on August 20, 2016 and pays the fee (10 days early).

The registry agency inspects the car and issues an inspection stamp for the subsequent 6-month interval from August 20, 2016 to February 19, 2017. As Mr. C paid the fee for a duration extending to August 31, 2016, the registry agency shall calculate and collect the road use fee for the duration from September 01, 2016 to February 19, 2017 (05 months 20 days) in the following manner:

The fee amount payable = 5 months x VND 130,000/month + (20/30) x VND 130,000/month = VND 736,670.

Example 4 on late inspection: the hypothetical situation resembles that of example 3 but Mr. C has his car inspected on September 15, 2016 (15 days late).

The registry agency inspects the car and issues an inspection stamp for a duration of 06 months from September 15, 2016 to March 14, 2017. As Mr. C paid the fee for a duration extending only to August 31, 2016, the registry agency shall calculate and collect the fee for the duration from September 01, 2016 to March 14, 2017 (06 months 15 days) in the following manner:

The fee amount payable = 6 months x VND 130,000/month + (15/30) x VND 130,000/month = VND 845,000.

a.4) If a vehicle owner owes the road use fee for previous inspection intervals prescribed, the vehicle owner shall not only pay the fee for the following interval but also incur the unpaid fee for previous intervals. If the inspection interval commences before January 01, 2013, the fee shall be charged from the date of January 01, 2013. Registry agencies shall claim the fee amount due for previous intervals, which equal to the 1-month fee rate multiplied with the duration of deferred payment.

a.5) If a vehicle owner desires to pay the fee for a duration that exceeds the inspection interval, the registry agency shall collect the fee and issues a stamp commensurate with the duration paid for.

a.6) The road use fee on a seized vehicle sold by a bank or auction organization shall be charged from the date of vehicle inspection for operation. In the event that the fee on the vehicle seized and sold has been paid after the re-inspection for operation, its owner shall pay the fee for a duration that succeeds the paid duration of the previous interval.

b) Fee payment per calendar year

Organizations and companies that desire to pay the fee per calendar year shall notify registry agencies in writing (for the first time or upon an increase or decrease in the quantity of vehicles) and pay the fee on their vehicles per calendar year.

Vehicle owners, on annual basis and before the 1st of January of the following year, shall pay the following year’s fee to registry agencies. Registry agencies, when collecting the fee, shall issue stamps for each vehicle for the duration paid for.

Example 7: Company A notifies the registry agency Y in writing of the former’s declaration and payment of the fee on its 10 vehicles for the calendar year of 2017; thus, Company A shall, before January 01, 2017, declare and pay the fee for the year of 2017 to the registry agency Y and receive the stamps for the 10 vehicles (each).

c) Fee payment on monthly basis

Transport companies and cooperatives that incur the fee of VND 30,000,000/ month or higher shall be allowed to pay the fee per month. Companies and cooperatives shall thereof notify registry agencies in writing (for the first time or upon a change to the quantity of vehicles) and pay the fee on their vehicles per month. Companies and cooperatives shall, on monthly basis and before the 01st of the successive month, pay the successive month's fee to the registry agencies (with which the monthly subscription is registered). Registry agencies, when collecting the fee, shall issue stamps commensurate with the duration paid for.

Example 8: Company B has 50 cars and incurs a monthly fee of VND 30 million; thus, Company B is allowed to pay the fee on monthly basis. In order to pay the fee for September 2016, Company B shall, before September 01, 2016, notify the registry agency X in writing and pay the fee on its 50 vehicles. Upon paying the fee, the owner of such vehicles shall receive the fee stamps for September 2016. Company B, on monthly basis and before the 01st of the following month, shall pay the fee on its vehicles.

2. For the automobiles of national defense and police forces: the fee shall be paid on annual basis at the rate defined in the fee schedule in Appendix 01 to this Circular.

Ministry of National Defense and Ministry of Public Security shall, on annual basis, make and send the estimate of the quantity and type of "national road fee” tickets in demand to the Fund’s office.

The Fund’s office shall print and issue “national road fee” tickets exclusive to national defense and police vehicles.

Ministry of National Defense and Ministry of Public Security shall purchase the "national road fee" tickets from the Fund's office under the following procedure:

Example 9: On January 01, 2016, Company X paid the fee on an automobile for 18 months (to June 30, 2017). Company X’s application for the cessation of the vehicle's operation after 1 month in use was approved by the supervisory agency. After 11 months of inactivity, the vehicle was registered for resumed operation on January 01, 2017. The registry agency issued a fee stamp valid for a period from 01, 2017 to May 31, 2018 inclusive (which includes 11 months from June 30, 2017).

Example 10: In the same hypothetical situation, Company X applied for the 20-month cessation of the vehicle's operation (from February 01, 2016 to September 30, 2017). On  October 01, 2017, it applied for resuming the vehicle’s operation. The registry agency then issued a stamp valid from October 01, 2017 to February 28, 2019 (17 months).

If the fee amount credited is less than the fee amount payable in the following period, the company shall pay an additional fee amount for the period of time that derives from the difference between the periodic duration that requires payment and the duration credited. The registry agency shall issue a receipt for the additional payment.

Example 11: Company Y owns an automobile on which the fee was paid for 12 months. The vehicle, after 05 months in use, ceased operation. At the end of the 12-month period, Company Y resumed the vehicle's operation and the registry agency decided to credit the fee against that of the following period. For the following 12-month period, Company Y receives a 7-month credit from the paid fee amount (commensurate with the period of inactivity) and pays an additional amount for 05 months. The registry agency issues a 12-month fee stamp and a receipt for the company's payment for 5 months.

If the vehicle identification board is temporarily revoked, the company shall apply in writing for reissuance of vehicle identification board to the Department of Transport (which keeps the vehicle identification board). The application includes the form of application for return of the vehicle identification board pursuant to Appendix 10 to this Circular, the Decision on crediting of the road use fee or, if the fee is yet paid for the period of temporary inactivity, the fee receipt (submit the copies with the originals for comparison).

- The copy of the business registration certificate;

- The copy of the vehicle registration card (of each vehicle included in the application);

Department of Transport takes in and examines the application. If the application is insufficient, the Department of Transport shall notify the company of supplementing the documents in no more than 03 working days upon the date of receipt of the application. If the application is valid, the Department of Transport shall examine the company’s actual conditions and endorse the application form if the vehicles qualify as declared by the company. The process takes no more than 10 working days from the date that the documents are fully received. If the conditions examined differ from those mentioned in the application, the company shall be responsible for revising the application to acquire the Department of Transport's endorsement.

The company shall submit 01 application form (endorsed by the Department of Transport) to the registry agency that inspects the company’s vehicles.

The company shall submit the copy of the application form (bearing the company’s authenticating seal) when having the vehicles inspected. The registry agency shall conduct the inspection and make comparison with the application form endorsed by the Department of Transport. If it matches, the road use fee shall be waived for such vehicles from the date of the Department of Transport's endorsement.

If the quantity of the related vehicles changes during the company’s operations, the company shall apply for additional endorsement to the Department of transport under the said procedure.

If the company applies for the operation of the vehicles in the road transport system (to incur the fee waived), the company shall notify the Department of Transport and registry agency in writing. It shall then pay the road use fee to the registry agency for the vehicles to enter the traffic. The registry agency shall conduct an inspection, compute and collect the fee on the vehicles, which is charged from the date that the owner registers the resumed operation of the vehicles.
