REUTERS/Darren Whiteside By Hidayat Setiaji JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's finance minister on Wednesday said the tax office will examine tax reports of the Indonesian offices of four Internet-based companies to check whether they have been paying correctly what they owe. Minister Bambang Brodjonegoro named the four as Yahoo, Twitter, Google and Facebook. While those companies have paid income taxes, they are still liable to value added tax applicable to revenue generated from advertising in Indonesia, he said. Southeast Asia's largest economy is facing a sizable revenue shortfall this year as the resource-rich country can no longer rely on commodity-related income. A decision to raise the threshold at which individuals start owing income tax in June, announced on Wednesday to boost economic growth, may aggravate the shortfall. Out of the four companies, Yahoo and Google have formed Indonesian limited liability companies. Twitter and Facebook operate branches of their Asia-Pacific offices in Indonesia. "Revenue from ads should be part of those taxable by us, we're doing a review," Brodjonegoro said, adding that Indonesia is demanding the same thing that Britain demands from those companies.
