Internal taxation of imports

On 31 December 2013, the Indonesian Ministry of Finance effectively increased the customs tariff for beverages containing more than 5% of ethyl alcohol (amendment 207/PMK.011/2013 of the initial regulation 62/PMK.011/2010). The new law concerned involves an excise tax but it discriminates against imported alcoholic beverages.
Compared to previous regulation where the excise tax for beverages with 5-20% of ethyl alcohol was 30'000 IDR/litre for locally produced bottles and 40'000 IDR/litre for imported ones, the excise tax was raised for both cases by 10%.
Also, the excise tax for the category with over 20% of ethyl alcohol has been changed. Locally produced bottles will be taxed 80'000 IDR/litre (previously 75'000 IDR/litre), while imported ones 139'000 IDR/litre (before 130'000 IDR/litre).
The provisions came into force on the day of issuance. However, products that have been registered before the issuance may be subject to the old regulation until 1 February 2014 (art. 1c of 207/PMK.011/2013).

Update

On 12 December 2018, the Ministry of Finance issued regulation 158/PMK.010/2018 amending the tariffs on some alcohols. However, as the changes were only for those products with identical rates for domestic and imported beverages, this intervention remains in force.
