TGS AU Partners will discuss this particular regulation as it aims to enhance the organization, transparency, and tax compliance of entrepreneurs in the excisable goods sector.
Background of the Issuance of PMK 68/2023
The Ministry of Finance Regulation (PMK) No. 68 of 2023 on the Issuance, Freezing, and Revocation of NPPBKC was enacted as a response by the Indonesian government to enhance surveillance and control over the rapidly growing excisable goods sector.

Understanding What the NPPBKC is
The NPPBKC (Nomor Pokok Pengusaha Barang Kena Cukai) or Goods Subject to Excise Identification Number is an official identification number issued by the Directorate General of Customs and Excise in Indonesia to entrepreneurs involved in the production, distribution, and trade of excisable goods.
The NPPBKC serves as a unique identifier for each individual or business entity operating in the excisable goods sector. It plays a crucial role in monitoring and controlling activities related to excisable goods, ensuring compliance with tax regulations, and enhancing the government's ability to supervise this specific industry.
With the NPPBKC, authorities can easily identify and monitor entrepreneurs engaged in the excisable goods sector, enabling them to conduct more effective surveillance and prevent potential violations of tax laws and regulations. Additionally, the NPPBKC provides entrepreneurs with legal certainty, streamlining administrative processes and licensing procedures, and promoting a transparent and integrity-driven business environment.
The Importance of the NPPBKC (Goods Subject to Excise Identification Number)
The NPPBKC, or "Goods Subject to Excise Identification Number," holds significant importance in various aspects of the excisable goods sector. This official identification number, issued by the Directorate General of Customs and Excise in Indonesia, serves multiple crucial functions that contribute to effective taxation, surveillance, and regulation of excisable goods. Here are some key reasons why the NPPBKC is important:
1. Tax Compliance and revenue generation
The NPPBKC plays a pivotal role in enhancing tax compliance among entrepreneurs in the excisable goods sector. By providing a unique identification to each business entity, it becomes easier for authorities to monitor transactions and ensure that the appropriate taxes are paid. This, in turn, leads to increased revenue generation for the government, supporting public services and development initiatives.
2 Effective monitoring and surveillance
With the NPPBKC in place, authorities can efficiently identify and monitor businesses involved in the production, distribution, and trade of excisable goods. This enables more effective surveillance to prevent tax evasion, illegal activities, and other potential violations. By having better control over the sector, the government can safeguard public interests and ensure fair competition.
Transparency and accountability
The NPPBKC promotes transparency and accountability in the excisable goods sector. It provides legal certainty to entrepreneurs and ensures that businesses are operating within the bounds of the law. Having a standardized identification system enhances the integrity of the sector, making it easier for stakeholders to trust and engage in legitimate business transactions.
Streamlined administrative processes
The issuance of the NPPBKC streamlines administrative processes for entrepreneurs. It simplifies licensing procedures and other regulatory requirements, reducing bureaucratic hurdles and promoting a more business-friendly environment. This, in turn, encourages legitimate businesses to thrive and contribute positively to the economy.
Data management and planning
The NPPBKC facilitates better data management and planning for the government. By having a comprehensive database of businesses in the excisable goods sector, policymakers can make informed decisions, devise targeted policies, and assess the impact of taxation measures on various industries.
