The tax office and finance ministry began updating merchants and the public on the new VAT refund initiative for foreign tourists in Jakarta on Thursday(26/Sep/2019).

稅務局和財政部26/Sep/2019(周四)開始向商人和公眾更新針對雅加達外國遊客的新增值稅退稅計劃。

The tax office director of public relations, Hestu Yoga Saksama, said that the socialization with Jakarta store owners was held to explain the recent change in the VAT Refund program. “Tourists can now spend at any store on different days a minimum of Rp 500,000 per receipt and once the total reaches Rp 5 million, they can claim the tax refund,” said Hestu to liputan6.com.

稅務局公共關係主管Hestu Yoga Saksama表示,與雅加達商店老闆進行了社交,以解釋增值稅退稅計
劃的最新變化。 “遊客現在可以在不同的日子在任何一家商店花費最少500,000印尼盾,一旦總消費達
到500萬印尼盾,他們就可以要求退稅,” Hestu在liputan6.com上說。

The tax refund can be claimed at VAT refund counters at the international airports including Jakarta, Bali, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, and Medan.

可以在包括雅加達,巴厘島,日惹,泗水和棉蘭在內的國際機場的增值稅退款櫃檯申請退稅。

Hestu explained that the foreign tourists must show their passports, boarding passes and bills to claim the tax refund. He also stated that the bills must be claimed within a maximum of one month after the foreign tourist gets the first bill.

赫斯圖解釋說,外國遊客必須出示護照,登機牌和票據以要求退稅。他還說,外國遊客拿到第一張帳單後,最多必須在一個月內提出要求

The program has been devised to attract foreign tourists to visit Indonesia. Hestu hoped the program can increase the number of foreign tourist arrivals and also increase business for local retail merchants.

該計劃旨在吸引外國遊客訪問印尼。赫斯圖希望該計劃可以增加外國遊客的到訪人數,並增加當
地零售商人的業務。

The government also hopes that the loosening of the minimum spending requirement to Rp 500,000 per receipt that can be accumulated will further encourage retail entrepreneurs and MSMEs to register as participants of the VAT refund program.

政府還希望將最低支出要求放寬至每張收據可累積的Rp 500,000,這將進一步鼓勵零售企業家和MSME
註冊為增值稅退稅計劃的參與者。

The tax office says that there are 55 retail entrepreneurs with more than 600 stores in Indonesia who are participating in the VAT Refund program at the moment. “The data in August 2019 recorded that there were more than 4,000 claims with a total of Rp 7.8 billion. Meanwhile, the claims in 2018 reached 11.2 billion rupiahs,” Hestu said.
