Indonesia considers digital tax even without world consensus
  + stars: | 2020-12-01 | by ( Reuters Staff | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -1.00   time to read: +2 min
Indonesia, Southeast Asia’s biggest economy, has begun collecting a 10% value-added tax (VAT) since mid-2020 on digital products and services from internet-based firms, but officials had previously said it would charge a tax on income only after a global consensus was reached. Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati told a virtual news conference that, based on the VAT payments, the tax office could estimate how much in income digital firms derive from Indonesia. The European Union is also considering going ahead with a bloc-wide tax on digital services if a global deal is not reached by mid-2021. The United States in June launched an investigation into digital services taxes being adopted or considered in several jurisdictions, including the EU and Indonesia. Indonesia’s tax office said 16 digital companies had paid 297 billion rupiah ($21.06 million) in VAT as of October.

Vietnam steps up online crackdown, jailed activists at record high: Amnesty

Slideshow ( 2 images )There are at least 170 “prisoners of conscience” in Vietnam, the report said, of which around 70 are currently serving jail terms for online activism, mainly on Facebook and Google’s YouTube. The current number of prisoners of conscience in Vietnam is the highest that London-based Amnesty has reported since it began publishing the figures in 1996, an Amnesty spokesman told Reuters. Amnesty defines prisoners of conscience as people who have not used or advocated violence, but were imprisoned because of their identity or beliefs. Earlier this month, Reuters reported that Vietnam had threatened to shut down Facebook locally if it did not agree to censor more political content. Amnesty’s report said the U.S. social media giants do not do enough to resist government pressure to censor posts.

Customers of mobile savings app Beam, some of whom complained that they had been unable to access their deposits for months, say they are finally getting their money back.

Now, even as the company is processing those customer requests, it faces multiple lawsuits, a federal investigation and an uncertain future. "Meanwhile, we are 100% focused on making Beam customers right." The complaint was filed Nov. 10 in federal court in San Francisco by Burlingame, California, law firm Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy, LLP.

An independent U.N. human rights investigator last month called for sanctions on North Korea to be eased because they may be worsening problems from the coronavirus lockdown.

HANOI (Reuters) - Vietnam hunted for survivors on Thursday after landslides triggered by Typhoon Molave, one of its strongest storms in decades, lashed a central region already reeling from weeks of heavy rains that have killed at least 160 people. At the site of one landslide that buried a village of 53 people, rescue workers pulled 33 survivors from the mud, the Tuoi Tre newspaper reported. Complicating rescue efforts has been the emergence of un-exploded bombs, revealed by heavy rains. It damaged 56,000 homes in Vietnam and left millions without electricity, with heavy rain expected in the central region until Saturday. The typhoon weakened to a tropical depression after making landfall on Wednesday and by Thursday afternoon, the skies over the worst affected areas had cleared, VTV said, helping rescue efforts.
