Regulations on registration in Vietnam

What is the registration fee? When buying what types of properties, buyers and sellers must pay registration fees? If you have to pay, how much is the payable amount, calculated by what method?

Definition of registration

Registration (trước bạ) is a Vietnamese kanji introduced into Vietnam, usually used when discussing legal issues.

Initially, ‘registration’ was understood as recording in the books, ‘directory’ of the Government of Vietnam. However, now, registration or specifically ‘đăng ký trước bạ’ has been understood as the registration of ownership rights for certain types of property in accordance with the law.

Accordingly, the registration fee is a legal fee that the owner of a fixed asset must declare and pay to the tax agency before putting that fixed asset into use.

These types of fixed assets can be houses, land, motorbikes, cars, yachts, even guns, shotguns, etc. Buyers of these types of assets will have to pay an additional registration fee for the agency they go to register to buy.
