The regulations, which will come into force on October 17 2023, are contained in the Minister of Finance Regulation Number 96 of 2023 concerning Customs, Excise and Tax Provisions for Import and Export of Consigned Goods.

Donny Tjahjadi, Technical Director of Customs, Directorate General of Customs and Excise, Ministry of Finance, further stated, “This is what ultimately has an impact on the growth of domestic industry.”
The rules contained in the Attachment Chapter to PMK Number 96 of 2023 state, “The customs value of imported goods in the form of samples/sample goods is determined hierarchically using the identical goods transaction method up to the repetition method as regulated in the Regulation of the Minister of Finance concerning Customs Value for Calculation of Duty Enter.”
