In relation to the government’s plan to accelerate Value Added Tax (VAT) restitution, the Directorate General of Taxation (DGT) is going to reassign the duty of about 80% of tax auditors who are all this time assigned to audit VAT restitution into digging tax potentials in order to encourage taxpayers’ compliance. Thereby, only about 20% of tax auditors are deployed to audit VAT restitution.
AT the moment, a tax auditor at a large tax office is able to averagely produce 5 audit result reports (LHP) for all taxes per year. Meanwhile, at special and medium tax offices, a tax auditor is able to averagely produce 6-7 LHP for all taxes per year. At a small tax office, a tax auditor is able to averagely produce 8-10 LHP for all taxes per year.
In addition, DGT is going to establish an auditor planning committee to support such policy thus the object of audit becomes more on-target. The committee will inventory and discuss some variables as well as make a decision prior to the audit of taxpayers.
