Accordingly, taxable items of the province are mainly crude oil, chemicals, production materials, machinery, and equipment to create fixed assets, white stone, wood chips, clinker, gypsum, refined sugar, medicine-created raw materials. Notably, the revenue of the Customs Department of Thanh Hoa province depended mainly on the import of crude oil of NSRP which accounted for 76.63%.
A representative of Thanh Hoa Customs Department said that in early 2021, the Department’s operations faced many objective difficulties due to the complicated and prolonged development of the Covid-19 epidemic, affecting import and export activities of enterprises. The budget revenue target depended largely on NSRP’s imported crude oil.
Especially in February, NSRP had an incident, so it reduced 2 crude oil imported shipments compared to the plan, thus the revenue was reduced from this source. Moreover, because the Covid-19 epidemic has directly affected the import and export of goods through Na Meo international border gate and Ten Tan main border gate, the implementation of budget collection duties in the first quarter of 2021 was difficult.
According to Thanh Hoa Customs Department, in the first 6 months of 2021, the unit detected and handled nearly 50 cases of customs law violations, administrative fines that had to pay more than VND 500 million to the budget thereby increased budget revenue by more than 1.2 billion dong from post-clearance inspection.
Especially, the unit had cooperated with functional forces to successfully fight many cases of illegal transportation of narcotics across the border. In June 2021 alone, the unit coordinated with the Thanh Hoa Border Guard to detect and arrest 3 cases of illegal drug transportation across the border and seized more than 8,300 total drug pills.
In the first 6 months of 2021, Thanh Hoa had received an estimated amount of 15,878 billion dong contributing to the state budget revenue, equaling 60% of the year estimation, increasing 5% against the same period; in which domestic revenue was estimated to be 10,342 billion dong, equaling 63.2% of the estimates, increasing 16.1%.
