The National Taxation Bureau of Taipei, Ministry of Finance (NTBT) expressed that people can consolidate their carriers into their cell phone number carrier account to prevent missing the boat to claim the Uniform Invoices Lottery Prizes since the offshore e-commerce suppliers shall issue cloud invoices stored in the email carriers to domestic individuals via the email carriers.
NTBT states that according to the provision of article 7-1 of Regulations Governing the Use of Uniform Invoices, the offshore e-commerce suppliers shall issue the cloud invoices to the purchasers when selling the electronic services to domestic individuals. The offshore electronic service suppliers gather from the consumers' email addresses as part of account registration information, so the Ministry of Finance's E-invoice Platform (hereinafter referred to as the Platform) currently uses the registered email address as the carriers to store the cloud invoice data. When matching any of the cloud invoice numbers under the email carriers to any of the winning numbers, the Platform will send a winning notice to the winner's email address. However, part of the winners didn't check their email (sometimes the notices are mistaken for junk mails by the email system, so please also check the junk mail folder), so they fail to claim the prizes before the deadline of redeeming.
NTBT points out that people can download and make use of the Ministry of Finance's"Uniform Invoice Lottery Redemption APP. "People can use its carrier consolidation function to link their email carriers of the offshore electronic service suppliers to their cell phone number carrier account of the Platform and set a financial institution account to receive the winning prizes as a deposit to the account after the Uniform Invoice Lottery drawing. Another option is to set the automatic transferring function on the Platform. Then, according to the cloud invoices stored in the paired carriers under the cell phone carrier, the Platform will automatically transfer the winning prizes to the designated financial institution account.
NTBT called on that besides the general uniform invoice prizes, people can have chances to win the exclusive prizes for the cloud invoices while purchasing and getting the cloud invoices from the registered offshore electronic service suppliers. To prevent missing the won prizes by oversights, please notice filling out the correct email address, linking your email carriers to your cell phone carrier account, and finishing setting up a redeeming financial institution account. Then, you won't miss the riches.
