Liquid tax postponed

July 5, 2018

The Indonesian Government has delayed from July 1 to October 1 the imposition of a 57 percent tax on e-liquids manufactured before July, reports The Jakarta Post.

“We cannot implement the regulation starting on July 1 because there are many users,” the Finance Ministry’s technical and excise director, Nugroho Wahyu, was quoted as having told the tribunnews.com.

“We told the vendors they are allowed to sell e-liquid without the additional tax until October 1.”

The delay applies only to e-liquids produced before July – presumably, July 1.

Liquids produced after that date will be subject to the 57 percent tax burden.

The Finance Ministry’s Customs and Excise Directorate General has estimated that the revenue from the e-liquids tax will amount to Rp5-6 trillion annually.

The Customs office has estimated that, this year, revenue from the e-liquids tax will reach about Rp200 billion.
