UMKM are businesses owned by individuals or entities that have met the criteria for micro-businesses. UMKM have an important role in the Indonesian economy. The UMKM sector is able to absorb large-scale workforce that is able to reduce the unemployment rate in Indonesia. In the last few years in Purworejo district, UMKM business actors have increased every year, but the increase has not been in line with the taxation sector, where the contribution of UMKM to the taxation sector has not had a maximum effect. There are still many UMKM who avoid tax even though the government has implemented an easy taxation policy.
The taxation sector is one source of state revenue. The Government of Indonesia issued a new policy related to reducing tax rates for UMKM actors by 0.5% intended to facilitate UMKM actors in fulfilling their tax obligations and to increase tax revenue from the UMKM sector so that the increase in the number of UMKM actors can be in line with the increase in UMKM sector tax revenues.
