HCMC — Binh Minh Plastics JSC is obliged to pay around VND8.66 billion in fines and back taxes for tax violations, according to the General Department of Taxation.
The company has incorrectly declared taxes, leading to underpayment, and was fined VND1.33 billion. It must also pay VND6.06 billion in back taxes for 2020 to 2022 and late fees of VND1.27 billion.
In the first half of 2023, the plastic manufacturer reported a 3.9% year-on-year drop in revenue to nearly VND2.8 trillion, but a 111% surge in post-tax profit to VND575.4 billion.

This year, the firm looks to obtain revenue of VND6,357 billion and after-tax profit of VND651 billion, a 9% rise in revenue but a 6% fall in profit compared to 2022.
The company had reached 88.4% of its profit target for the year as of June 30, 2023.
