INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Kadin) supports the implementation of Online Single Submission (OSS) in the customs field because it can facilitate businesses.
Deputy Chairman of the Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Benny Soetrisno, supports the government's steps to implement OSS in the fields of customs, excise and taxation. It's just that this OSS implementation is expected to be supported by a capable technology system.
"Good [if applied], provided that the computer system is smooth and does not hang," he said (6/8/2018).
The integration of the OSS system into various fields is also called to help businesses. Therefore, the implementation of this policy must continue to be supported, moreover the process is integrated in all systems in the ministries and institutions.
"With this integrated system, it will be good for export and import licensing," continued Benny.
Business actors who want to access customs obligations must be registered through OSS. These provisions are a consequence of the enactment of the Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) Number 71 / PMK.04 / 2018 concerning Electronic Integrated Business Licensing Services in the Customs, Excise and Taxation Field which will come into force end of July 2018.
The rules which contain 20 articles generally explain the implementation of customs obligations after OSS implementation. This PMK refers to Article 88 of Government Regulation No.24 / 2018 regarding Electronic Integrated Business Licensing Services which asks ministers or heads of institutions to formulate and set licensing standards in their respective sectors.
In the context of customs, the form of standardization is with the provision to use the OSS system in the licensing process in customs authorities.
The affirmation regarding this scheme is contained in Article 2 paragraph PMK 71/2018 specifically in paragraphs 1, 2 and 3. Explanation of paragraph 1 for example states that every business actor who will carry out customs duties must register customs to the Directorate General of Customs and Excise (DJBC) Ministry of Finance (Ministry of Finance).
However, to be able to do customs registration, the business actor must have a Business Registration Number (NIB) issued by the OSS institution. That is, with the entry into force of the obligation, practically without the acquisition of NIB issued by the OSS institution, business actors cannot fulfill their customs obligations.
The customs access meant in this regulation is only valid for exporters and importers.
In addition to customs registration, integrated licensing services in this electronic system can also be done when business actors will take care of licensing of bonded hoarding places, licensing the ease of import of export destinations, and submission of Excise Goods Entrepreneur Identification Number (NPPBKC).
This provision in principle does not apply retroactively, for permits that have been issued before the enactment of this ministerial regulation is declared still valid until the end of the said permit.
Meanwhile, business actors who have applied for a permit before the enactment of this ministerial regulation and have not received approval, the settlement process uses the provisions of the applicable laws.
