On 29 May 2020, Indonesia issued Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) No. 57/PMK.05/2020 to increase the plantation fund tariff by 5 percent from the maximum plantation fund tariffs set out in the PMK No.152/PMK.05/2018 (see related state acts) for the export of palm oil and its derivative products. The plantation fund tariff is another export levy beside export's custom duty that is imposed on Indonesian exporters of palm oil and its derivative products. 

The new regulation also eliminated the classification of plantation fund tariffs depending on the market price CPO, as regulated by PMK No.152/PMK.05/2018 (see related state acts). With the new regulation, the plantation fund tariffs apply to all without any exemption and tariff rate differentiation based on CPO market price.

The new plantation fund tariffs were set between 15 percent to 55 percent.

Regullation PMK No. 57/PMK.05/2020 came into force on 1 June 2020.
