TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - West Jakarta’s directorate-general of taxation managed to expose a corporate tax crime that took place in 2019 involving a company named PT GSG, which could potentially cause the country to lose over Rp 9 billion.
“The success of the corporate tax crime investigators is the first in the directorate-general of taxation,” said the head of the Ditjen, Erna Sulistyowati in a press release on Monday.
Initial investigations conducted on PT GSG found the company suspect of violating Article 39A and Article 39 (3) of Law No.16/2009 regarding tax procedures.
Erna explained that PT GSG deliberately filed an annual tax return (SPT) on added-value tax (PPN) which utilized the invoice for taxes not based on actual transactions. The firm has been named suspect due to this.
This action was deemed intentional as it enables the firm to achieve financial gains from the SPT’s restitution results.
Erna said indications of fraud that was committed by PT GSG is able to be detected under an integrated monitoring system implemented by the directorate-general of taxation.
