What is the SCT Base?
The tax base is the taxable amount / value determined according to tax laws, used to calculate the tax liability. It creates the amount of revenue used in tax calculation of the resulting amount, after deducting expenses on a gain.
The base is divided into two according to the value it contains:
- Advalorem basis: It is a certain number. For example, the amount remaining after deducting deductible expenses from income earned in income tax constitutes the base.
- Specific basis: The type of thing that causes the tax is the basis determined according to its characteristics (such as m2, kwat, motor power 1500). For example, the motor power of the motor vehicle is taken into account when calculating the base in MTV.

- Lump Sum Procedure: It is the general determination of the value or amount to be taxed for all taxpayers in the same situation instead of determining them individually.
