Stop import, upstream textile industry could grow 15% PDF Print E-mail

The upstream textile industry that produces filament fibers and yarns filed for tax exemption of raw materials supplied by local manufacturers. Secretary General of the Association of Indonesian Filament and Fiber Films Producers (APsyFI) Redma Gita Wiraswasta said the businessman expects equality with VAT and 0% import duties enjoyed by imported raw materials.


"If this seems like a pro import when local producers can supply," he .told . Currently, associations and related parties are still discussing with the Fiscal Policy Office (BKF) on this issue. The installed national capacity reaches 830,000 tons per year for polyester and 600,000 tons for rayon fiber. "For rayon there is addition of Sritex Group expansion," said Redma.


Until the first half of 2017, Redma said the performance of the textile raw material industry fell 10% over the same period last year. However, with the government policy that closes the import of fabric and yarn dyed positively to this industry. "If the government remains consistent in closing imports, the upstream textile industry could grow 10-15 percent in the second semester of this year," he said.


Prama Yudha Amdan, Executive Assistant President Director of PT Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk further highlighted the tax issue for raw materials using domestic products and taxed 10% and subsequently refunded. The process of tax restitution is considered too long. "With this situation, business players prefer imports," he said. Prama expects raw material tax exemption and equality of treatment with imported products.



Stop impor, industri hulu tekstil bisa tumbuh 15%


Industri hulu tekstil yang memproduksi serat filamen dan benang mengajukan pembebasan pajak bahan baku yang dipasok pabrikan lokal. Sekjen Asosiasi Produsen Serat dan Benang Filamen Indonesia (APsyFI) Redma Gita Wiraswasta mengatakan, pengusaha mengharapkan ada kesetaraan dengan PPn dan bea masuk 0% yang dinikmati bahan baku impor.


"Kalau seperti ini kelihatannya jadi pro impor padahal produsen lokal bisa suplai," ujarnya kepada KONTAN, Rabu (6/9). Saat ini asosiasi dan pihak terkait masih berdiskusi dengan Badan Kebijakan Fiskal (BKF) mengenai masalah ini. Adapun kapasitas terpasang nasional mencapai 830.000 ton per tahun untuk poliester dan 600.000 ton untuk serat rayon. "Untuk rayon ada penambahan dari ekspansi Sritex Group," terang Redma.


Sampai semester I-2017, Redma menyebutkan, kinerja industri bahan baku tekstil turun 10% dibandingkan periode sama tahun lalu. Namun dengan kebijakan pemerintah yang menutup impor borongan kain dan benang berdamnpak positif ke industri ini. "Jika pemerintah tetap konsisten menutup impor, industri hulu tekstil bisa tumbuh 10%-15% di semester dua tahun ini," sebutnya.


Prama Yudha Amdan, Executive Assistant President Director PT Asia Pacific Fibers Tbk lebih menyoroti soal pajak untuk bahan baku yang menggunakan produk domestik dan dikenakan pajak 10% dan kemudian direstitusi. Proses restitusi pajak dianggap terlalu lama. "Dengan keadaan seperti ini tentu pelaku usaha lebih memilih impor," ujarnya. Prama berharap pembebasan pajak bahan baku dan kesamaan perlakuan dengan produk impor.
