Special Staff of the Minister of Finance Yustinus Prastowo request the Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) tracing identity crazy rich Indonesia who bought a luxury residence in Singapore.
According to him, DGT must be able to ensure that these rich Indonesians have carried out their tax obligations properly.
In this case, because the assets purchased are abroad, DGT can use the Automatic Exchange of Information (AEoI) scheme, which is a system for exchanging financial information automatically between countries.
“Usually things like this are included in the AEoI scheme. Or at least the DGT can do an EoI to ensure we get more detailed information,” he said in a tweet @prastow, Monday (24/4).
He emphasized that the government only wants to ensure that the buyer has carried out his tax obligations and registered the assets purchased honestly in the report on the list of assets in the Annual Notification Letter (SPT).
“Buying property is a citizen’s right. Hopefully, their tax obligations will be fulfilled properly,” he said.
Previously, it was reported that a rich man from Indonesia bought three luxury homes in Singapore with a value of SGD 206.7 million or IDR 2.3 trillion (assuming an exchange rate of IDR 11,194 per Singapore dollar).
This residential purchase was discovered through Mingtiadi, a company engaged in the real estate sector, although it did not mention the identity of the buyer in detail.
Mingtiadi said the residence was purchased from Cuscaden Peak Investments, a company affiliated with the Singapore BUMN, Temasek Holding. The three luxury residences are in the Nassim Road area.
In detail, these luxury residences each have two floors and have numbers 42, 42A and 42B in District 10 with a known house price of 4,500 Singapore dollars per square foot.
