TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Directorate General of Customs Kuswandono, said that tobacco excise will be increased in 2015. "We have delivered the plan to the Budgeting Board of the House of Representatives [to increase] excise by 10.2 percent...," he said.
He said that to be excise will be increased because there has been no increase this year.
Until mid-2014, customs and excise revenue is yet to its predetermined target of 58.3 percent. "This concerns me. Customs revenue on July did not meet the [intended] target," said Agung. "Therefore, we only plan to increase [tobacco] excise on retail level."
