New Rules on Imports via E-Commerce Immediately Apply, What about the Goods from Batam?
The government through the Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) Number 199 / PMK 010 2019 regulates the imposition of new import duty tariffs.
Under the regulation, the customs duty adjusts the exemption value of import duties on imported goods from previously 75 US dollars per shipment to 3 US dollars per shipment.
The regulation will take effect on January 30, 2020 for all ports or for any international transactions within the country.
In the regulation explained, all goods from abroad entering Batam are not subject to import duties and import taxes. However, if the goods are released from Batam to other parts of Indonesia, then import duties and import taxes will be subject to what has been determined.
"The release of imported goods from the free port area and free trade or other economic zones to other places in the customs area through shipment is exempted from import duty and excise with the provisions as referred to in article 13 and 14," explained article 44 paragraph 1 of the regulation.
"Determination of tariffs and exemption of import duties and taxation in the framework of import of imported goods as intended in paragraph 1 applies the provisions referred to in article 20 paragraphs 1, 2, 3, and 4," explained the regulation further.
For information, previously the Director General of Customs and Excise of the Ministry of Finance, Heru Pambudi explained, by lowering the threshold value, the government also rationalized the amount of the tariff.
As for before, the tariff rate for imported products was above US $ 75 from 27.5 percent to 37.5 percent. The tariff consists of import duty of 7.5 percent, Income Tax (PPn) of 10 percent, and Income Tax (PPh) of 10 percent for those with NPWP and 20 percent who do not have NPWP.
In addition, different tariffs apply for textile products, bags and shoes. For bags, shoes and textile products such as clothes, the tariff rates for these three products still follow normal rates.
The import duty ranges from 15-20 percent for bags, 25 percent-30 percent for shoes and 15 percent to 20 percent for textile products. Not to mention the 10 percent of PPn and 7.5 percent to 10 percent of PPh. (*)
