The Impact of the Regulation of the Minister of Finance Number 199/PMK 010/2019 has disrupted online businesses in Batam.
TRIBUNBATAM.id - The Impact of the Regulation of the Minister of Finance Number 199/PMK 010/2019 concerning Customs, Excise and Tax Provisions on the Import of Shipment has disrupted online businesses in Batam.
Rendi, one of the businessman in the field of shipping in Batam claimed to lose Rp 3 to Rp 5 million per day.
Because according to him, all goods that use the shipping service must be withdrawn due to Customs declining the shipment.
According to him, the PMK was just a trick so goods could not get out of Batam.
"The PMK is strangling small entrepreneurs. The impact is everywhere. In this week, 200 packages to be sent are being held back," he said.
No different from Rendi, Sahat, a Batam businessman, also experienced the same thing.
He said as many as 300 of his packages to be sent outside Batam were unloaded while at the Hang Nadim Customs.
From some of the packages it was stated that it was stuck and had problems.
Meanwhile, law practitioner in Batam, Hermanto Manurung SH said, Regulation of the Minister of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia Number 199 / PMK.010 / 2019 is full of interests.
Because according to the checks he did in the field, several other shipping services passed.
"The question is, why did the package pass? We won't say the name of the delivery service. But, we should suspect, PMK is an order and full of interests. It needs to be reviewed." he said.
He said, the Government should provide the widest possible space for small entrepreneurs.
So that the economy becomes evenly distributed. If it is evenly distributed, then the development of human resources is easier and can compete with developing countries.
"If the community's economy is good, it's easy to send children to school. But the Government does not seem to think in that direction. Many entrepreneurs are screaming because of this PMK. We, as a community, ask for a commitment from the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, to build a people's economy," he said. (Tribunbatam.id/Leo halawa)
