The shell companies
In another section, the minister has signed a new technical rule of remission of tax policy, which once focused on providing tax relief for WP who divert assets from shell companies.
Shell company set out in the rules of finance ministers (FMD) is a company established with the specific purpose (special-purpose vehicle SPV), without active business activities.
“FMD is still there in the law firm (the law firm of the General Secretariat of the Ministry of Finance), still has not given a number,” said Sri Mulyani told reporters in Jakarta, this week.
In his presentation, he said there are two schemes of disclosure and transfer of assets not directly belonging to WP via SPV. For WP have not yet reported its stake in the SPV at the Annual tax return (SPT), it must report the possession of such assets in accordance with the value of assets recorded in the SPV.
Meanwhile, for WP who had reported assets in the SPV within a fixed annual tax return must report back the treasure. However, the value of such assets less the value of shares in SPV which has been reported in a previous tax return.
However, according to him, if the status of the SPV is a subsidiary that is running an active business, the implementation of treatment of assets in accordance with PMK No. 18 / PMK.03 / 2016 on the implementation of Law No. 11 of 2016 on Tax Forgiveness.
In PMK was arranged that WP are transferred assets in the context of tax amnesty in the form of stock and land / buildings be given income tax exemption (income tax), all made no later than December 31, 2016.
Earlier, Director General of Finance and Risk Management at the Ministry of Finance to make sure the new FMD related SPV will facilitate shell company owners who want to divert assets (unwind) into the country in the framework of the tax amnesty policy.
To that end, the government will provide tax relief incentives given SPV unwind process usually takes charge and taxes are not small. Costs can arise when the transfer of assets, the transfer of the name, even the establishment of new companies in the country.
However, Sri Mulyani continues to attract funds of foreign citizens in the return to the country in accordance with the Tax Amnesty Law, including those from Singapore. This step was taken due to the repatriation of funds from abroad is still very low to August 20, 2016.
Of the total repatriation of assets until August 20, 2016 amounting to Rp 1.4 trillion, repatriation of funds of citizens in the new Singapore amounting to Rp 1.08 trillion. The potential for citizens in Singapore funds reached Rp 4.000 trillion.
The minister said, the declaration of assets abroad and repatriation are two rights of the citizen in the Tax Amnesty Law. Because the tax amnesty program one of which aims to uncover a treasure citizen who has not been reported so as to increase the tax base.
“So if the citizen residing abroad, but included in the tax subject Indonesia, then still have to pay taxes,” said Sri Mulyani.
According to him, the government has set a lower redemption rates for the citizen who transferred his property to Indonesia, which is 2%, 3% and 5% until the beginning of March 2017. With these rates, it is expected to attract Sri Mulyani citizen to repatriate.
“My job is to run in order to repatriation as much as possible. So when they (the citizen) asked that the gateway plus, I added. Expand Investing in the non-financial, I remove the PMK. So this makes the certainty and confidence that if repatriation to Indonesia would be more beneficial to WP and our economy, “he said. bari / Mohar / FBA
