The use of E-Retribution is part of non-cash national movement that the company has also tried to encourage and to increase the use of electronic money.
"The step of implementing this transaction innovation is part of bank bjb's efforts to provide convenience to the community while encouraging the government's goodwill in optimizing regional income. This step is also in line with one of bank bjb's synergy visions to encourage the implementation of Smart City gradually in various regions," said Widi.
The E-Retribution payment system is an innovation to facilitates the merchants to pay retribution. So far, the payment of fees has been made in cash, now it is enough to use a card, and its implementation will be expanded gradually.
E-Retribution is a way of collecting retribution for market traders using cards. This means that merchants no longer pay fees in exchange for tickets. bank bjb provides a card that is used as a medium of payment. How to use it, traders simply swipe the e-retribution card onto the electronic device carried by the officer. Automatically, the merchant's balance will be reduced according to the amount of fee paid.
The implementation of E-Retribution system provides certainty about the nominal amount of fees that traders must pay to the government. The implementation of this system is also a breakthrough to reduce the occurrence of leakage and optimize Regional Original Income (PAD).
In addition, the implementation of E-Retribution is also an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 which is still happening, since the collection of fees does not use cash which is very vulnerable to spreading the virus.
