Kadin Indonesia - Jakarta - Vice Chairman of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) of DKI Jakarta Sarman Simanjorang assessed that the final tariff of final income tax for micro, small and medium enterprises needs to be accompanied by a strategy to increase the business class.

In a discussion in Jakarta, Wednesday (27/06/2018) Sarman said that the government is in charge of improving various aspects that have been the shortcomings of MSMEs, such as capital and management.

It is expected to be able to make MSME business actors up grade, for example from the perpetrators of micro to small or from small to medium.

"After he goes to class, he will have activities to be taxed, so in addition to his own MSMEs, there is a role for inter-government to take the class," said Sarman.

On the same occasion, Vice Chairman of SME and IKM Apindo Ronald Walla assessed the role of government is important, especially in providing education in order to compete to enter the era of industry 4.0.

"The role of guidance for good bookkeeping should be intensified, for example through cooperatives in tau college area," he said.

Under the terms of the latest PP, the reduction of the Final Income Tax rate from 1.0 percent to 0.5 percent of gross turnover, shall be paid monthly, for taxpayers with gross turnover of up to Rp 4.8 billion in one year.
