The Vietnam Financial Leasing Association (VILEA) currently has 7 official members, which are financial leasing companies. Throughout its operation, the Association has played an active role in bridging communication with regulatory agencies, providing feedback, criticism, and recommendations for amending policy mechanisms related to financial leasing activities. The Association also serves as a platform for its members to develop businesses and protect the legitimate rights and interests of each member.
One of the significant contributions of the Association is providing input in the construction and revision of legal documents related to credit institutions in general and the financial leasing sector in particular. Additionally, the Association actively participates in providing opinions during consultation processes conducted by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).
Furthermore, the Association has gathered opinions from its members to propose recommendations to relevant ministries in order to address legal inconsistencies and conflicts in regulatory documents, such as regulations on electronic invoices, VAT on financial leasing services, tax refunds when purchasing assets domestically for leasing in export processing zones, and license plate issuance according to Circular 58/2020/TT-BCA of the Ministry of Public Security. However, some challenges are still being addressed and resolved.
The Association has also closely collaborated with partner associations and international organizations such as WWF and FFV to support the organization of seminars on green and sustainable development trends and responsible business management.
