Nam said that in March, Petrolimex will hold training courses for its member units on the process of issuing e-invoices.
He said a pilot month of applying e-invoices in the group and Ha Son Binh petroleum company has finished. All problems have been tackled and the firm has finalised preparation work.
Petrolimex launched the e-invoice project on May 19, 2015 with the support of VNPT-Vinaphone-Daka joint venture, said Nam, adding that the firm’s database has been computerised to serve the issuance of electronic receipts.
Issuing e-invoices is expected to cut costs and make petroleum trade more transparent.
Customers can receive their receipts via email or by accessing Petrolimex’s website at http://hoadon.petrolimex.com.vn.
The invoices will be kept on the Petrolimex server for 10 years. This will also help management agencies access information and control petrol trade activities in Vietnam.
