Road tax can now be paid through GDT app

Vehicle owners can now pay road tax on their mobile devices through the GDT Taxpayer App, after the latest update, according to the Ministry of Economy and Finance’s General Department of Taxation (GDT) on July 30.

The GDT stressed that the move is part of a greater mission to improve efficiency and transparency in tax matters, and modernise information technology infrastructure in the sector, consistent with government reform policies.

Available on Android and iOS 11.0 and above, the app will reduce the need for in-person visits to district and provincial tax branches, or participating commercial banks, the department said, adding that it will provide doorstep delivery of road tax stickers.

“The GDT is confident that vehicle owners and the wider community of taxpayers will benefit greatly from this app, saving time and paying taxes in an easy manner while being able to monitor the tax status on all vehicles or other means of conveyance in an instant,” it said.

Logistics Business Association president Chea Chandara noted that the move is part of the government’s push for integrated digitalisation in an Industry 4.0 context, and would simplify the often complicated and stressful process of paying road tax.

“I think this app is very useful and will encourage people to learn how to use technology that is important in daily life. It will also help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus,” he said.

The GDT said registered vehicle information can be viewed and updated on the app, which it added is synchronised with its vehicle data management system.

People can pay annual road tax on multiple vehicles without having to fill out a tax reform, request a tax clearance certificate, or apply for and immediately receive an E-Card or other benefits, it said.

It added that they can still opt to pay their taxes at participating commercial banks, which it listed in a May 28 press release as Canadia Bank, Acleda Bank, Vattanac Bank, Cambodian Public Bank, 8 Trust Royal Bank, Sathapana Bank and Cambodia Post Bank.

The GDT noted that it collected $1.51590 billion in taxes in the first half of 2021, down 10.60 per cent year-on-year, equivalent to 67.58 per cent of the $2.24307 billion target set in the Law on Financial Management for 2021.
