SPKS: Numbers of Levy Should be Evaluated

InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA - Serikat Petani kelapa Sawit (SPKS) monitored in 14 districts and 5 provinces, smallholders’ FFB gets much cheaper. Head of Organization and Membership, SPKS, Sabarudin said, the temporary export levy deletion based on Regulation of Minister of Finance (RMF) Number 115/2022 could not mean a solution to make smallholders’ FFB more expensive.

He thought, SPKS is launching a digital petition to revoke export levy and Out Fee of CPO. He continued the revocation could be too late because the FFB is less than Rp 1.000/kg. “In fact, smallholders’ plantation governance is not noticed anymore. In addition, Indonesian Sustainable Palm Oil (ISPO) also needs supports from the smallholders,” he said.

He also reminded palm oil governance should be noticed. Coordinator Ministry in Economy, Ministry of Agriculture should calculate the numbers of tax to normalize FFB price. “This should be the evaluation point to implement the levy,” Sabarudin said. (T2)
