The Indonesian Directorate General of Taxation have appointed eight retail companies to help introduce the first phases of the new value-added-tax (VAT) refund scheme available to Indonesian visitors effective April 1, 2010.

The first companies designated to extend tax refunds are comprised of only five companies in Jakarta and three in Bali, with plans to eventually extend the facility to more retail outlets across the country.

The companies now extending VAT refunds to travelers are:

• Pasaraya Blok M - Jakarta

• Sarinah – Jakarta

• Metro Pondok Indah Mal – Jakarta

• Metro Plaza Senayan – Jakarta

• Keris Gallery, Terminal III, Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Jakarta

• Batik Keris, Discovery Shopping Mall, Bali

• UC Silver, Batubulan, Gianyar - Bali

• Mayan Bali, Kuta Square, Block A, Number 12 – Bali

The VAT tax refund scheme is intended to stimulate purchases and spending by foreign tourist visiting Indonesia.

The participating merchants will grow in number over time will display a "VAT Refund for Tourist Sign."

The refunds are not available to Indonesian citizens or permanent residents, defined in this instance as anyone staying more than 2 months in Indonesia. The refund program is also not available to foreign airline crews.

Those wishing to take advantage of the offered refund must present their passport at the time of purchase, shop at a participating merchant, and spend a minimum of Rp. 5 million (US$532). Proof of purchase, a VAT refund form and the items purchased must be presented at the tax refund counters in operation at the Jakarta and Bali's airports set up to receive refund claims.
