Bali Villa Association Urges Government to Close Down Unregistered Commercial Villas.

(6/13/2009) The Chief of the Bali Villa Association (BVA), Ismoyo S. Soemarlan, is calling on the government to undertake sweeping raids against illegal commercial villas in Bali and close all illegal villas down.

Quoted in Denpost, Ismoyo, who is also the owner of the Villa Uma Sapta, said the hoped the government would soon undertake sweeping raids involving members of the BVA.

The raids are necessary, according to Ismoyo, in order to move against villas that avoid taxes and have callously evaded recent efforts to allow lenient ex post facto commercial registration of their enterprises. Said Ismoyo: "Arrest them! It's clear they are breaking the law."

The Chief of the BVA told the press that he has accumulated data on illegal villas that could form the basis of future enforcement actions. Ismoyo said that tracking down the illegal villas is an easy matter of comparing the list of licensed establishments against those Bali villas offered for rent on the Internet.

now all we need is an actual written definition of "illegal commercial villa".

I guess you could say its a villa that is being rented out on a short terms basis (say under 1 year) and tax not being paid on the income.

I know it will be hard but I have come across a lot of privately owned villas that are rented out to tourists. The money goes overseas, no tax is paid, nothing going to the local community. Not exactly fair and if continues to go on the locals have every right to kick off.

I think sweeping raids are a great plan. Some of those villas could do with smartening up. To whom do I post a broom?
