    Director General of Customs and Excise Heru Pambudi

    JAKARTA – The Indonesian Logistics and Forwarders Association (ALFI) wants the obligation to prepare customs bonds or custom bonds applied to each province, not to each of the customs and excise service offices.

    Adil Karim, General Secretary of ALFI DKI Jakarta, said the custom bond rule is very burdensome and resulted in forwarder companies and customs clearance companies (PPJK) threatened with bankruptcy because they can not fulfill the custom bond obligation.

    “As a middle way, we ask for one custom bond to be applied for activities in one province only, not at any Customs Service office,” he told Bisnis on Wednesday (3/1/2018).

    He said the Director General of Customs and Excise should encourage the continuity of domestic business as the current government program.

    Therefore, Adil said, ALFI urged the revision of the customs registration regulation rules as stipulated through the Regulation of the Director General of Customs and Excise Ministry of Finance No: Per-4 / BC / 2017 stipulating the amount of customs service guarantee bonds or custom bonds.

    “If imposed will make massive layoffs on the business sector forwarder and PPJK in Indonesia,” he explained.

    Previously, the amount of custom bond prepared by forwarder companies is paid once a year and can apply throughout the Indonesian customs area in carrying out activities as a freight forwarder guarantee as well as the process of customs clearance services (PPJK).

    However, he added, with the Perdirjen BC No: 4/2017, the custom bond is set only valid for activities in each area of ​​customs office and excise duty depending on the classification.

    Based on the new beleid, custom bonds for conducting activities in the main service office (KPU) and supervisory offices of customs-type services are set at Rp250 million.

    For Supervisory Offices and A-type customs municipal services amounting to Rp 150 million, and for supervisory offices and BC services of customs B type madya amounting to Rp 100 million, while in customs service offices of C customs type C is Rp 50 million.

    Custom bonds may be in the form of cash, bank guarantees or insurance from the insurance company, as a requirement in carrying out forwarder and customs clearance activities.

    The Directorate General of Customs and Excise of the Ministry of Finance stated that it will check in advance regarding the complaints and protests of forwarder and logistics businessmen who object to the new rules concerning customs bail or custom bond activities.

    “I have to check first yes,” said Director General of Customs and Excise Heru Pambudi via short message to Bisnis, Wednesday (3/1/2018).

    Meanwhile, Head of Main Customs and Excise Service Office of Tanjung Priok Port, Dwi Teguh Wibowo, said that the customs bond obligation in Priok Port has been in effect since June 1, 2017.
