Since they have business in Indonesia, they have to comply with our taxation regulations.
Jakarta (ANTARA) - Electronic system operators (PSEs) who fail to register on the risk-based Online Single Submission (OSS) system by July 20, 2022, will be warned, then fined, before being blocked, the Communication and Informatics Ministry has said.

"There will be three stages (of sanctions). The first stage will be (the issuance of) a warning, the second one will be (the imposition of) a fine, and the third one will be blocking (the PSE)," director general of informatics application at the ministry, Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, informed at a press conference here on Tuesday.

He said his office will conduct a review of PSEs on July 21 and sanction those who have not registered on the system.

“The most severe sanction will be blocking,” he added.

However, the PSEs will be blocked temporarily so that they can operate once they register on the OSS system, although it would be later than the deadline, he said.

His office has urged PSEs to register on the OSS system without delay since there is an applicable regulation in Indonesia concerning the governance of PSEs.

“So that we can know which PSE operates in Indonesia and what service they provide," the director general explained.

He said that all PSEs and digital business actors targeting Indonesia as their market are required to register on the system.

“Since they have business in Indonesia, they have to comply with our taxation regulations. Hence, we collect their data (via the OSS system),” he added.

There are six categories of PSEs who are required to register on the system, including providers of services and goods transactions, financial services, communication services, music and film streaming platforms, search engines, as well as personal data collection services.

As of 10 a.m. Western Indonesian Standard Time (WIB, UTC+7) on July 19, 6,296 PSEs -- consisting of 6,187 domestic operators and 109 foreign operators -- have registered on the system, as per the ministry’s records.

They include Google, Microsoft, Telegram, MiChat, TikTok, Linktree, Lego, Spotify, Mobile Legends, Ragnarok X, MyPertamina, OVO, Traveloka, Gojek, Grab, KAI Access, Lazada, Blibli, OLX, JD.ID, Shopee, Bukalapak,, Pegipegi, Netflix, MTix, Bibit, Livin 2.0 by Mandiri, BNI Mobile Banking, BTN Mobile Banking, and Jenius.
