Reasons why the proposal to support 1,000 USD when buying an electric vehicle was rejected, the proposal to develop charging stations

Currently, electric car users are people with well-off economic conditions, so supporting 1,000 USD is unreasonable and can easily cause reactions from society.

Not long ago, the Ministry of Transport reported to Deputy Prime Minister Tran Hong Ha that he proposed a policy to support the conversion to electric cars. In particular, it is proposed to continue to apply special consumption tax incentives for electric cars with 9 seats or less at 3% after February 28, 2027 for domestically produced and assembled electric cars. ; VAT exemption for the first 5 years, 50% reduction for the next 5 years.

In addition, the Ministry of Transport also cited proposals from businesses to provide people with a subsidy when buying electric cars to shift consumption behavior from gasoline and diesel cars to electric cars at a reasonable rate. 1,000 USD/car (about 24 million VND/car).


However, in document 8084/BTC-CST sent to the Ministry of Transport (MOT), the Ministry of Finance proposed to remove a number of recommendations to support taxes for production, assembly and consumption as well as construction activities. Build charging stations for electric cars, as well as support and subsidy policies for electric car buyers. This includes rejecting the proposal to support 1,000 USD/electric vehicle because it is not suitable for the context and conditions of Vietnam, specifically:

Firstly, current support policies from the state budget in our country give priority to the poor, those in remote areas and some subjects with special circumstances. especially difficult.

In the context of the state budget still facing many difficulties, the state still has to balance resources to implement many programs and projects on social security, hunger eradication and poverty reduction, infrastructure development, and policy implementation. This will create pressure to increase spending on the state budget.

Second, although price subsidy and financial support policies have been applied in some countries, raising the issue of price subsidies and financial support as proposed is not appropriate to the context and conditions of the country. Vietnam and easily causes mixed reactions from public opinion, because currently car users in general, and electric cars in particular, are high-income people in society, concentrated mainly in urban areas. town.

“The law on state budget also has no provisions as a legal basis for the implementation of this policy,” the document from the Ministry of Finance sent to the Ministry of Transport clearly stated.


In addition, the Ministry of Finance also proposed not reducing preferential import taxes for complete electric vehicles. Accordingly, in the recent period, the law on taxes, fees and charges has been reviewed, amended and supplemented to suit the country’s development in each period as well as the requirements for the development of industries and sectors. important field. Among them, there have been many preferential policies on taxes, fees, and charges for the automobile industry and automobile support technology, including policies to encourage the use of environmentally friendly cars and automobiles. electrochemical at a fairly high level.

In the context that Vietnam has participated in many free trade agreements, besides favorable opportunities, the domestic automobile industry is also facing many different challenges such as low domestic production rate. , the market size is still small, the cost of manufacturing and assembling cars is high, traffic infrastructure has many bottlenecks…

In the opinion of the Ministry of Finance, the development and implementation of policies to promote the development of the automobile industry in general and electrified cars in particular in the coming time should be carefully researched and implemented. thoroughly, ensuring adherence to policy directions and in accordance with international practices and Vietnamese practice.

Therefore, the Ministry of Finance emphasizes that policy proposals as well as implementation organizations of relevant ministries, branches and agencies need to have explanatory documents, feasibility in practice and bases for proposals, Avoid emotional, ineffective proposals that waste state budget resources.

Regarding the recommendations of the Ministry of Transport proposing to have preferential import tax policies for electric cars, the Ministry of Finance said that it has reported to the Prime Minister and the Government proposed not to adjust or reduce preferential import tax rates. incentives for complete electric vehicles.


According to the Ministry of Finance, raising the issue of tax exemption or import tax reduction for complete electric cars as proposed by some businesses will significantly affect businesses manufacturing and assembling electric cars. domestically, putting pressure on transport infrastructure and reducing state budget revenue.

Regarding tax exemptions and reductions for the production and assembly of electric cars and electric vehicle batteries, the Ministry of Finance said that current tax laws have high incentives for production and installation activities. domestically assembling electric cars and electric vehicle batteries, not only providing incentives for importing components and spare parts for the production of electric cars, but also providing focused, time-limited tax incentives for imported raw materials and supplies to produce and assemble electric cars and electric vehicle batteries.

Regarding tax incentives for importing equipment and components to build charging posts, especially fast charging posts, the Ministry of Finance believes that the current import tax stipulates import tax exemption for goods that create fixed assets. for subjects with investment incentives according to investment law.

If the charging station installation project is located in an investment incentive area or is on the list of investment incentive industries according to the investment law, the import tax on machinery and equipment to create fixed assets of the installation project will be exempted. Set up charging stations and provide incentives for land rent and land tax according to regulations.

Accordingly, the Ministry of Finance requested the Ministry of Transport to propose to the Ministry of Planning and Investment to research and consider additional projects to build charging towers and charging stations that are eligible for investment incentives according to regulations. of investment law.
