On 20 September 2018, the General Department of Customs (the “GDC”) issued official letter no. 5475/TCHQ-TXNK giving clarification on the transportation-related charges in relation to customs values of imported goods. In this OL 5475, the GDC guided that those charges which do not meet all the conditions for additive adjustments prescribed in Circular no. 39/2015/TT-BTC, or if they arise after the time the goods arrive at Vietnam’s first importation check-point need not be added to the dutiable values of the imported goods.
