Land rental

50% of the arising land rental payable in 2022 of enterprises, organisations, households, business households, and individuals that are eligible under Decree 34 are entitled to payment extension by 6 months from 31 May 2022 to 30 November 2022.

What are the procedures for extension application?

Eligible taxpayers under Decree 34 are to follow the following procedures to register for the payment extension for taxes and land rental:

  • Submit the extension request following the form in the Appendix issued with Decree 34 once for the total tax and land rental arising in the tax period that is extended along with the monthly (or quarterly) tax return or separately by 30 September 2022 directly or online to the tax management authority.
  • The tax authority is not required to notify taxpayers of the acceptance of their request for payment extension of taxes and land rental. During the extension period, if the tax authority identifies businesses that are not eligible for the extension, the tax authority would send a written notice to that business on the ineligibility for the extension. The taxpayer must pay tax and land rental and late payment interest during the extension period.
  • No late payment interest will be charged for the extended tax and land rental amount within the extended payment period.
