    The Ministry of Finance issued Circular 99/2016/ND-CP on 29 June to provide
    guidelines on the management of VAT refunds, including the process of handling
    VAT refund applications, obligations of tax payers and tax authorities in the
    process, measures to deal with high tax risk cases, etc (“Circular 99”).
    • Taxpayers can submit VAT refund applications directly or by post to their
    local tax authorities. If the local tax authorities implement e-VAT refunds,
    taxpayers can submit the application via the electronic information gateway
    of the General Department of Taxation – in this case the GDT and local tax
    authorities will circulate information on the VAT refund status on the
    system, and the tax payer will be able to access this.
    • The required documents for a VAT refund application follow Circular
    156/2013/TT-BTC dated 6 November 2013.

    reliance on the information contained in this publication or for any decision based on it.
    • The deadline to issue a VAT refund decision is 6 working days for “refund first, audit later” cases and 40
    days for “audit first, refund later” cases, from the submission of a complete VAT refund application.
    • The local tax authorities shall work with relevant organizations (banks, customs departments, tax
    authorities managing suppliers of the taxpayer, police departments) to identify high tax risk cases.
    Additional investigations may be undertaken for such cases.
    Circular 99 also sets out the role of the General Department of Taxation (“GDT”) in funding VAT refunds and
    supervising VAT refunds made by local tax authorities. It is expected that the GDT will more closely supervise
    the VAT refund processes of local tax authorities going forward.
    Circular 99 will become effective on 13 August, replacing Circular 94/2010/TT-BTC on VAT refunds for export
    goods, Decision 2404/QD-BTC on VAT audits for "refund first, audit later" VAT refunds, and Circular
    150/2013/TT-BTC on management of VAT refund funds.
    Following Circular 99, the GDT issued official letter 3124/TCT-KK to provincial tax
    authorities . OL 3124 requests that from the issuance date of OL 3124 (i.e. 12 July
    2016) to the effective date of Circular 99 (13 August 2016), the local tax authorities
    submit VAT refund dossiers applications in the following cases to the GDT for
    i. VAT refund applications which are classified as “refund first, audit later" and
    which must be audited within 1 year from the decision on the VAT refund as
    regulated under Clause 18, Article 1, Law No. 21/2012/QH13 dated 20
    November 2012 and Point b, Clause 14, Article 2, Circular 26/2015/TT-BTC
    dated 27 February 2015;
    ii. VAT refund applications which are classified as "audit first, refund later" as
    regulated under Clause 18, Article 1, Law No. 21/2012 and Point a, Clause 14,
    Article 2, Circular 26/2015; VAT refund dossiers which are not classified as
    "audit first, refund later" as regulated under Clause 3, Article 1, Law No.
    106/2016/QH13 dated 6 April 2016;
    iii. VAT refund applications of taxpayers which are in a VAT receivable position
    for at least a year.
    From 13 August 2016 onwards, the supervision of VAT refund dossiers shall be in
    accordance with Circular 99.
