a/ For charge-collecting units which are non-business units with the function of conducting property auction or are property auction councils: The collected auction charge amounts are state budget revenues and are managed and used as follows:

- When charge-collecting units are allocated funds from the state budget for the organization of auctions, they shall remit the whole collected charge amounts into the state budget according to the corresponding chapter, category, clause, section and sub-section of the current state budget index.

- When charge-collecting units are not allocated funds from the state budget for the organization of auctions, they may use the whole collected charge amounts (100%) to cover expenses for the organization of auctions and the collection of charges in accordance with current regulations.

Based on the auction charge rates applied in their localities and the operation of local business units with the function of conducting property auction or local property auctions councils, provincial/municipal People’s Councils shall decide on the percentage of the collected auction charge amounts which charge-collecting units may retain to cover expenses for the organization of the auctions and the collection of charges.
