LAND REFORM (LEGAL AND TAX IMPLICATIONS)
Minister of Agrarian and Spatial said that 58% lands are only owned by 1% of population in Indonesia. It is based on statistic information i.e GINI Index by World Bank = 0.58%. It means the pricing of land is very depending on only a few owners / parties, who can ‘fry’ the land prices.
In order to avoid this situation, government plans to take some action to manage the incremental of land prices fairly such as :
- Increasing the rate of tax on land and building (PBB) for the owner that have more quantity or surface land area.
- Implementing the land reform: unproductive land will be re-regulated. There will be limitation of ownership per districts (kelurahan).
- Changing the ruling on the final income tax to Capital Gain tax on selling land & building.
- Possibility for government to issue new laws and regulations related with land reform in order to spread the ownership to more parties / peoples such as land bank tax for unutilized assets.
The owners of big land areas and investors need to anticipate the future legal and tax regulations wisely.
