Uber And Vietnam Continue To Battle Over Tax

Uber has failed to challenge efforts by the Vietnamese tax authorities to collect more tax from the ride-hailing app provider.

In an ongoing spat between the firm and the agency, Vietnam is seeking considerably more tax from its local operations than the firm is willing to part with.

Based on local media reports, Uber contests that it should be taxed as though it simply provides an app-based service that connects drivers with end users, rather than providing a traditional taxi service.

According to local media reports, Uber has now failed to challenge before a local court attempts by local authorities to seize funds from its local bank accounts, based on an assessment of unpaid tax and penalties of about USD3m. Further, the tax agency is seeking to compel local banks to pass on information about Uber's turnover.
