He added, everyone is waiting, we are all here hoping-hope anxiously, hopefully there is good in the Ministry of Finance. "If not kindness, there is generosity to help us all," he explained.

Furthermore, Archandra explained, for this taxation domain we open dialogue with the Ministry of Finance. "We will occasionally invite from the Ministry of Finance to hear directly, the Ministry of Finance is part of the solution," continued Arcandra.

Responding to this, the Director of Tax Inspection and Tax Collection of the Ministry of Finance, Wind Prayitno Aji stated that gross split taxation is still under discussion with positive developments. "We are also waiting for what kind, Minister of Finance also when there is a letter from the IPA, the Minister's Minister asked, and this story of where this has not been completed but why it's been asked like this, it means it is still in progress Pak, progressnya Insha Allah positive," said Wind.
