Indonesia to tax e-liquids

 Indonesia to tax e-liquids

Indonesia’s Director General of Customs and Excise, Heru Pambudi, has said that electronic cigarette liquids will be subjected to an excise duty of 57 percent starting in July next year, according to a story on tempo.co.

The imposition of the tax was described as the government’s effort ‘to regulate’ vaping.

“The main ingredient of the vape liquid is tobacco, which is a taxable object according to the Excise Law,” Heru said during a press conference at the Finance Ministry in Jakarta on Thursday. “Its consumption must also be limited.

“The bottom line is that this is done to prevent underage children from misusing this product.”
