Characteristics of the electronic invoice in Vietnam

Vietnam will make the electronic invoice mandatory in July 2022. This new deadline was implemented to give companies more time to prepare for the adoption of the new system, since originally it was meant to be in 2020. Special circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have made the government delay the deadline by two years.
