Virtual Office Can Become a VAT Enterprise(s)

Lately, we have encountered small and medium entrepreneurs who use virtual office services as legality or as their office address. Not only small and medium-sized entrepreneurs, start-up companies that are currently developing also prefer virtual office services. In addition to being proven to cut office expenses, virtual offices have also been a solution to various business permit issues that are often faced by entrepreneurs.

Being a solution to various problems does not mean that Virtual Office is independent of the problem itself. And one of the problems that often arises when using virtual office services is, whether or not a company can become a Taxable Person for VAT purposes if using a virtual office service.

Answering this question, the government as the party that regulates all business licensing tax matters has issued a decree, through the Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) No. 147 / PMK.03 / 2017 concerning Procedures for Taxpayer Registration and Elimination of Taxpayer Identification Numbers and Inauguration and Revocation of Taxable Entrepreneurs' Inauguration.

Minister of Finance Regulation (PMK) No. 147 / PMK.03 / 2017 In Chapter 1, Article 1 No.22 defines a virtual office and co-working space is an office that has a physical room and is equipped with office support services provided by the virtual office manager to be used as a place of domicile, a place of business activity, or correspondence jointly by 2 (two) or more entrepreneurs who use the office in the form of payment in any form, excluding building rental services and serviced office services.

However, there are some things that need to be underlined by entrepreneurs, namely not all virtual office service providers can help your business in applying for VAT. And virtual office requirements can be used as the VAT inaugural address are:

  1. Entrepreneurs who use virtual office services are intended to have business licenses or other similar documents issued by authorized officials or agencies, and
  2. Fulfillment of the conditions of the virtual office manager as follows:
  • Has been confirmed as PKP;
  • Providing physical space for business activities for entrepreneurs who will be confirmed as PKP; and
  • Actively carry out office support services.

And as one of the Virtual Office service providers in Kuningan's central business district, South Jakarta, and also has all the facilities you need to support your business, 88Office becomes one of the Virtual Office service providers who have fulfilled the requirements in applying for VAT, so this will really helps your business in filing a VAT.
