Socialization on Post Border and Ministry of Finance Regulation No. 229/PMK.04/2017
On 27 March 2018 EuroCham attended a socialization by the Soekarno Hatta Customs Service Office regarding the implementation of post border policy, and Minister of Finance Regulation No. 229/PMK.04/2017. Objections were raised against the Regulation No. 229/PMK.04/2017 which regulates the Procedures for the Imposition of Import Duty under International Agreement or Treaty Frameworks. It is required by this regulation that to enjoy the lower preferential tariff, Certificate of Origin must be submitted within 3-5 days, otherwise higher normal tariffs will apply which must be paid by the importer or its forwarders.
The short deadline for submission of Certificate of Origin is the primary concern since previously submission can be done after 30 days. Notably participated in the discussion were representatives from the Indonesian Logistic and Forwarders Association (ALFI), the Indonesian Association of Express Delivery, Postal, and Logistics (ASPERINDO), Indonesia National Importer Association (GINSI).Back
