Kadin Indonesia Vice Chairman for Fiscal and Public Policy, Suryadi Sasmita, accompanied by Chairman of the Standing Committee on Taxation, Siddhi W, along with the management of the Entrepreneurship Division, the management of the Transportation Division and INSA representatives held an audience with Acting. Head of the State Revenue Policy Centre (PKPN) Pande Putu Oka Kusumawardani at the BKF Office, Jakarta (1/9/2023). This meeting discussed the MSME Tax to upgrade and shipping issues.
Regarding MSMEs to Upgrade, Kadin Indonesia conveyed:
(i) The concept of inclusive close loop partnership was launched by the President of Indonesia on 3 October 2022, but the concept of partnership before that year already existed;
(ii) If following PMK 128/2019, it is not appropriate to apply to MSMEs because of the educational background, age, sector specifics, apprenticeship targets imposed in the PMK. However, the PMK is not appropriate for MSMEs because MSME actors are not limited in terms of age, education;
(iii) The previous year's partnership concept was in the nature of assisting, while the current one needs years of curation because the target is to raise the level of MSMEs to a higher level;
(iv) The concept of CSR is assistance that is completed at that time, but the concept of inclusive close loop partnership is continuous/sustainable.
Meanwhile, regarding shipping issues, Kadin Indonesia conveyed:
(i) Objection to PMK 186/2019 Classification of Tax Objects and Procedures for Determining the Selling Value of PBB Objects, especially article 9 which states that ships are engineering constructions and are attached to the land continuously. Considering that the ship is not continuously attached to the land, it is objected if the ship is used as a PBB object;
(ii) Regarding the PMK, there has been a case won by the Tax Court of an oil and gas ship company, which in its verdict should no longer be paid PBB, but the Tax Service Office is still being collected on the grounds that there is no revision of the PMK. This will burden the company in question.
