Association Rejecting Discourse Imposition of Excise Plastics PDF Print E-mail
Written by Maizer   
Tuesday, 26 April 2016

Plastics industry and users who are members of the User Forum Plastic oppose government plans to impose excise tax on plastic packaging. He said the imposition of excise duty would cause a rise in production costs, reduce demand, resulting in weakening competitiveness.

 

"This rejection was voiced as a follow-up of their plastic packaging imposition of customs discourse by the government through the media," said one member of the User Forum Plastic Rahmat Hidayat in Jakarta

 

 

"The imposition of excise plastic does not fit the criteria of goods subject to excise stipulated in Law No. 39 of 2007 on excise," he said.

 

Meanwhile, the Minister of Industry Saleh Husin said they would accommodate industry objected to the discourse.

 

"A lot of inputs, such as businesses that create most likely quite resistant. We will coordinate with the Ministry of Finance, to truly calculate carefully what will be taken," Saleh said when met here.

 

Saleh said the planned imposition of customs plastics packaging is expected to weigh on consumers, because of the imposition of customs, product prices will rise in packaging, where the public will bear the brunt of the increase.

 

Such a situation, he added, was allegedly going to lower sales, which will result in a decrease of production itself.

 

"If production drops, long closed, and many have lost jobs. In fact, zero later. This is what we have to consider carefully for many people, do not be a victim of consumers," said Saleh.

 

 

Asosiasi Menolak Wacana Pengenaan Cukai Plastik

 

 

Pelaku industri dan pengguna plastik yang tergabung dalam Forum Pengguna Plastik menolak rencana pemerintah untuk mengenakan cukai pada kemasan plastik.

 

"Penolakan ini disuarakan sebagai tindak lanjut dari adanya wacana pengenaan cukai kemasan plastik oleh pemerintah melalui media massa," kata salah satu anggota Forum Pengguna Plastik Rahmat Hidayat di Jakarta

 

Ia mengatakan pengenaan cukai tersebut akan menyebabkan naiknya biaya produksi, menurunkan permintaan, yang berakibat pada melemahnya daya saing.

 

"Pengenaan cukai plastik tidak sesuai dengan kriteria barang kena cukai yang ditetapkan dalam Undang-undang Nomor 39 Tahun 2007 tentang Cukai," katanya.

 

Sementara itu, Menteri Perindustrian Saleh Husin mengaku akan mengakomodir keberatan pelaku industri terhadap wacana tersebut.

 

"Banyak masukan-masukan, seperti itu buat pelaku usaha pasti akan agak resisten. Kami akan berkoordinasi dengan Kemenkeu, untuk betul-betul menghitung secara seksama apa yang akan diambil," ujar Saleh saat ditemui di Jakarta.

 

Saleh mengatakan, rencana pengenaan cukai kemasan plastik diprediksi akan membebani konsumen, karena dengan pengenaan cukai, harga produk dalam kemasan akan naik, di mana masyarakat akan menanggung beban kenaikan tersebut.

 

Situasi demikian, lanjutnya, disinyalir akan menurunkan penjualan, yang akan berakibat pada penurunan produksi itu sendiri.

 

"Kalau produksi turun, lama-lama tutup dan banyak yang kehilangan pekerjaan. Malah nol nanti. Ini yang harus kita pertimbangkan matang-matang untuk masyarakat banyak, jangan yang jadi korban konsumen," tukas Saleh.
