Palmoilmagazine, press conference of POPSI which InfoSAWIT facilitated on Wednesday (20/7/2022) in Cikini, Jakarta.

Palmoilmagazine, JAKARTA – Chairman of POPSI, Pahala Sibuea said, the temporary tax delation which would be available until 31 August 2022 should be watched out because the policy system should actually be discussed deeply by taking smallholders who got the direct impact by a policy published.

“Do not realize before export citation (levy) and Out Fee should be improved in the first place and we should be taken to discuss how to implement the levy and Out Fee in order not to burden the smallholders,” he said in the press conference of POPSI which InfoSAWIT facilitated on Wednesday (20/7/2022) in Cikini, Jakarta.

Remind, to get smallholders’ fresh fruit bunch (FFB) more expensive, the government through Ministry of Finance published the Regulation of Minister of Finance (RMF) Number 115/PMK.05/2022 about the Substitution of RMF Number 103/PMK.05/2022 about Public Service Obligation on Palm Oil Plantation Fund Management Agency (PFMA) in Ministry of Finance.

In the revision, every export tax (levy) that PFMA managed for every product from crude palm oil (CPO) and its derivative is zero. This would be temporary since it was announced on 15 July 2022 to 31 August 2022. 

Since 1 September 2022, it would be back to normal within the maximal tariff at US$ 240/ton for CPO which is more than US$ 1500/ton within advalorem tariff change which is price progressive.

What the government does, is responded by the smallholders joining in Persatuan Organisasi Petani Sawit Indonesia (POPSI) which consists of Asosiasi Petani Kelapa Sawit Indonesia – Perjuangan (Apkasindo – Perjuangan); Serikat Petani Kelapa Sawit (SPKS); Asosiasi Petani Kelapa Sawit Perkebunan Inti Rakyat (Aspek - PIR); Jaringan Petani Sawit Berkelanjutan Indonesia (Japsbi); Jaringan Petani Sawit Nasional.  T2
