Manufacturers are calling on the Indonesian government to retract the 10% luxury tax it imposed in January on soft drinks, arguing that they should not be categorised as luxury goods. A report by the Jakarta Post claims the government, which introduced the tax in an attempt to increase tax receipts, claims that soft drinks cannot be considered as basic commodities and are consumed by higher-income groups.
