Discovering Important Information About WAPU
Recent provision regarding e-meterai that the government just launched is considered a new thing for the Indonesian people. It is not surprising that there are still many things that people do not know about this e-meterai. Thus, societies need to adapt and actively seek more relevant information. One of the e-meterai users is WAPU or pemungut (collectors). Not many people are familiar with this term and what kind of users are categorized as WAPU. So, let us discover the complete information about WAPU and how they get the e-meterai here.
What is WAPU?
WAPU stands for Wajib Pungut. This term is used for companies or business entities that the Minister of Finance chooses as Pajak Pertambahan Nilai (PPN) collectors. Not only collecting taxes but this agency is also obliged to deposit and report taxes on Barang/Jasa Kena Pajak (BKP/JKP) that have been collected to Pengusaha Kena Pajak (PKP). The WAPU mechanism is implemented to increase taxpayer compliance, which is relatively low, increase state revenues, and strengthen tax administration. In distributing the e-e-meterai, WAPU can make purchases using the postpaid transaction. Currently, there are approximately 400 companies as WAPU selected by the DJP that can cooperate with MitraComm Ekasarana Channel Solution to obtain e-seal services. How does WAPU get e-meterai quotas from the distributor? Find the answer in our next article.
