NEWS from Coco, our personal shopper: Tax refund at airport made easier for foreign tourists
The tax office and finance ministry began updating merchants and the public on the new VAT refund initiative for foreign tourists in Jakarta on Thursday.
The tax office director of public relations, Hestu Yoga Saksama, said that the socialization with Jakarta store owners was held to explain the recent change in the VAT Refund program. “Tourists can now spend at any store on different days a minimum of Rp 500,000 per receipt and once the total reaches Rp 5 million, they can claim the tax refund,” said Hestu to liputan6.com.
The tax refund can be claimed at VAT refund counters at the international airport of Bali.
Hestu explained that the foreign tourists must show their passports, boarding passes and bills to claim the tax refund. He also stated that the bills must be claimed within a maximum of one month after the foreign tourist gets the first bill.
Bali Adaptive Pro Contest Makes Surf History 10 minutes from the Anuva villa
Close to the Anuva villa, history was made September 4th at the Bali Adaptive Pro presented by Burton Automotive with five division champions being crowned after an amazing and level-raising final day of competition, where 23 of the world’s most courageous adaptive surfers took on the heaving 4-5 foot Indian Ocean swell that was bombarding Old Man’s with solid and at times back-to-back sets and came back to the beach safe and sound, albeit tested thoroughly.
Israel’s Adi Klang in the Standing Lower Limb Division was the first champion crowned, going up against Australia’s Dale Taylor in a man-on-man duel that saw Taylor posting the highest score of the final, a near perfect 9.17 (out of a possible 10) with his first wave, but was unable to find a big backup score after Klang posted first an excellent 8.17 and then a 7.50 to lead and eventually win the final.
After receiving his trophy at the beachside awarding, Klang stopped for a few words. “For me this is like when I won at the Adaptive World Championships in 2017. I’m so happy ! I was so impressed by the organization of the event here. The waves were perfect, they made the right decisions about sending the right surfers out at the right place and conditions, had the jet ski to help, and even the trophies are perfect. I want to say thank you for accepting me, I enjoyed this so much. I will definitely come back next year to do this event again,” he exclaimed.
In the Standing Upper Limb Division, Brazil’s Mike Richard found the challenging waves especially to his liking, surfing a perfect heat by posting not only one but two Perfect 10 point waves in the four-man final, leaving his fellow finalists in a combination situation. Richard was an aspiring young pro surfer when a motorcycle accident severely damaged his arm. His was a long and challenging mental and physical road to recovery, but now he runs his own surf school in Brazil and hopes to see adaptive surfing have a full tour schedule where he and others can make a living by being pro surfers.
A last minute decision brought North Wales surfer Lewellyn Williams to Bali, where he found himself the winner of the Kneel Division at the end of the 30-minute final against three other worthy competitors: Jade Wheatley from Australia, Sobarudin from Indonesia, and Mark “Mono” Stewart from Australia. Although Wheatley was rewarded a perfect 10 points for his first wave, a 5.15 score eluded him, and in the end Williams consistent performance with two high 7 point scores earned him the win.
