JAKARTA. Starting 1 January 2024, the Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) requires government agencies and corporate taxpayers to use a 16-digit Taxpayer Identification Number (Tax ID number), in administrative services through the Agency Level Financial Application System (SAKTI) and the State Treasury and Budget System (SPAN).
This is stated in Announcement Number PENG-22/PJ.09/2023 issued on 14 December 2023.
Previously, the effective time for using Tax ID number in 16-digit format for corporate taxpayers and government agencies, the Population Identity Number (NIK) format for individual taxpayers, and the Identity Number of Place of Business Activities (NITKU) format for branches, was set to start 1 July 2024.
This is as stated in the Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) Number 136 of 2023. With this announcement, central government agency work units and taxpayers engaging in transactions with these institutions must possess a 16-digit Tax ID number, effective 1 January 2024.
The implication is that government agencies and taxpayers who will do transactions using SAKTI and SPAN can get a 16-digit Tax ID number from the DGT.
Likewise, for individual taxpayers whose status of Population Identity Number (NIK) as their Tax ID number is not yet valid, they can immediately perform data matching.
Taxpayers can do this by accessing the DGT website, contacting the DGT contact center, or coming directly to the Tax SmOffice (KPP) where the taxpayer is registered. (ASP/KEN)
