ANNOUNCEMENT 07 Apr 2010In April 2010, the government of Indonesia announced a change in import duties.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
Regulation 82/PMK.011/2010 (in Bahasa Indonesia):
Regulation 213/PMK.011/2011 (in Bahasa Indonesia):
On 7 April 2010, the Indonesian Ministry of Finance replaced the existing ad valorem tariff on alcoholic beverages containing ethyl alcohol with a specific tariff.
Beer shallnow be subject to a tariff of 14'000 IDR/litre, whereas beverages with HS codes 2204, 2205 and 2206 will receive an import duty of 55'000 IDR/litre. Bottles with spirits, liquors and other beverages with the HS code 2208 shall be taxed at 125'000 IDR/litre.
The previous ad valorem tax ranged from 40 to 150%.
The regulation came into force on the day of its issuance, i.e. on 7 April 2010. It was revoked and replaced by 213/PMK.011/2011 on 1 January 2012. However, as the tariffs concerned remained unchanged, this measure is still listed as implemented.
According to UN Comtrade, Indonesia did not have bilateral trade worth more than 1 million USD in the tariff lines concerned with any other country in the year prior to the implementation of this measure, i.e. in 2009. Hence, no affected trading partner has been listed.
On 23 July 2015, Indonesia increased the import duties for alcoholic beverages (cf. Related Measures). However, as the tariff regime for beer remained unchanged, this measure is still classified as implemented.
