Indonesia asks Internet firms to pay tax to avoid blockages

Jakarta, Feb.29 (ANI): The Indonesian Government has asked Internet-based firms to pay domestic tax in order to avoid blockages of services, reports Reuters.

“All Internet-based services must have a local presence in the form of a representative office or a full-fledged company. All have to create a permanent establishment, like the contractors for the oil sector, so they can be taxed,” the Finance Minister of Indonesia Bambang Brodjonegoro said.

Indonesians are huge users of Google and social media sites like Facebook, Twitter. The country is considered Twitter’s capital and is home to the world’s fourth-largest number of Facebook users. (ANI)
