Do not hesitate to submit a complaint: Indonesian finance minister
Business actors who feel unfairly treated by the tax authorities are welcome to make a report.
“If there is a complaint, do not hesitate, the government is present for the community, for the business world, if there is a tax officer doing harassment or something unfair, report,” said Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati when delivering speech at the 10th anniversary of Adaro IPO in Jakarta, Monday (16/7).
Finance Minister praises Adaro as one of the best taxpayers. In fiscal year 2017, Adaro earned a windfall profit from coal price increases voluntarily submitting its obligations to the government to pay taxes and royalties.
“One of the reasons I came to this event was Adaro’s good performance in tax payments,” said Sri Muyani.
Minister of Finance also appealed to companies operating in Indonesia to maintain the condition of the balance sheet and hope that the condition can also be met by the management of PT Adaro Energy Tbk (ADRO). Moreover, this private company is one of the big taxpayers in Indonesia.
“I am sure, if all companies (in Indonesia) are well managed, we as the government can maintain and support properly,” said Sri Mulyani.
