Ho Chi Minh City Taxation Department on Thursday proposed Uber Technologies Inc in Vietnam to perform its financial obligations at a meeting between relevant agencies and the company on problems related to its online taxi app service.
According to the Taxation Department, Uber Vietnam has not complied with regulations in its business registration license. The department has tried to contact the company for many times via the address on the license but in vain.
The department proposed Uber Vietnam to make contact with tax agencies to get instructions on the performance of their tax duties and Uber in the Netherlands to supply the list of Vietnamese transport companies supplying its service.
Uber representative in Asia - Pacific region said that Uber Vietnam has been licensed by HCMC People’s Committee for six months to provide two main services including management consulting and market research.
Therefore, the company is just eligible to give software system assistances to transport businesses instead of signing contracts with any firm to supply online taxi app service.
Deputy Director of the Transport Department Le Hoang Minh said that some Uber’s partners in Vietnam have provided the service without transport licenses, badges and logos.
He proposed the Uber Company in the Netherlands to sign contracts with eligible transport businesses and take responsibilities for failing to register its operational procedures in Vietnam.
