JAKARTA. The Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) and several banks that are members of the State-Owned Bank Association (Himbara), namely PT Bank Mandiri, PT Bank Negara Indonesia (BNI) and PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) have collaborated on data exchange. The cooperation agreement was signed by DGT and Bank Mandiri, Bank BRI and Bank BNI on Tuesday (28/6) in Jakarta.
Through this collaboration, data owned by DGT and banks will be connected to each other through an interoperability scheme, which is a scheme that allows an application to be connected to other applications.
Referring to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) interoperability is defined as a system that allows the sender and receiver to both use the data that is exchanged.
In a written statement, the DGT said that this collaboration is part of the tax authorities' efforts to reform the taxation system so that it can have a positive impact on state revenues, encourage compliance and improve taxation and banking services.
Apart from integrating the system through an interoperability scheme, DGT and the three state-owned banks also agreed on several other matters, such as:
- Exchange and utilization of data or information through the provision of payment channels
- Integration of information systems or certain data to support banking services and the implementation of DGT's duties
- Technical competency development
- Confirmation of Taxpayer Status
- Other activities are based on mutual agreement.
