Universitas Indonesia > News > News Highlights > UI Vocational Education Program Held Seminar to Introduce The Latest Tax Policies

The latest tax policy, Government Regulation Number 58 of 2023, is a derivative regulation of Law Number 7 of 2021 concerning Harmonization of Tax Regulations (HPP). PP 58/2023 discussed the withholding rate for PPh Article 21 on income in connection with individual taxpayers’ work, services, or activities, which is an important rule for the industry. Therefore, the UI Vocational community service team is trying to expand the introduction of the new policy to the community and industry, considering the policy has been implemented since January 2024.

This introduction was conducted through a seminar “Latest Tax Policy: Government Regulation no. 58 of 2023” on Thursday (01/02/2024). Located in UI Vocational Building B, UI Depok Campus, the community service activities were conducted by Hadining Kusumastuti, S.Sos., M.Ak., CA, CMA, CRMP; Thesa Adi Purwanto, S.Sos., M.T.I.; Titin Fachriah Nur Anwar, S.E., M.M., CA; Elsie Sylviana Kasim, S.Sos., M.Sc.; and Fitria Arianty, S.Sos., M.Si; as well as UI Vocational students.

Hadining, as the head of the community service team, said that this activity was in collaboration with Tax Consultant Asta Dahayu Consulting and involved the industry in expanding the reach of tax compliance through seminars. This collaboration is also part of the collaboration between academics and practitioners to support real learning or adapt teaching factory programs, especially in the scope of applied sciences, such as at UI Vocational Education Program.

“Education to industry representatives who attended this seminar helped reduce the gap between the policy conception intended by the government and its implementation. We hope this seminar can become a model for academics and other campuses to embrace industry to increase taxpayer compliance in Indonesia. Thus, the level of successful compliance and tax revenue from the grassroots level also increases. The domino effect is the country’s development,” said Hadining.

The seminar activity was attended by 17 participants from 10 company representatives, namely PT Sung Bo Jaya; Dhawon Apparel; Yuri Indo Apparel; PT Indadi Land; PT Anadana Global Multifinance; PT Indo Sultan Jaya; DKH Hospital; AHRP Law Firm; DKH West Cikarang Hospital; and DKH Sukatani Hospital.

Thesa, as the representative of the UI Vocational Tax Clinic and the community service team, stated that the teaching factory activity would continue to create a mutualistic symbiosis between the company and the campus. “Through the tax clinic, we can help assist the reporting of PPh OP SPT for taxpayers, and companies get assistance with tax processing through student internship programs in the UI Vocational Tax Administration study program,” said Thesa.
