This study discusses the implementation of tax policy aimed at encouraging venture capital to finance startup companies in Indonesia. Furthermore, this study discusses how other countries encourage their venture capital and analyze tax policy alternative that can be applied in Indonesia. This research is conducted with qualitative approach through in-depth interview and literature study. This research is expected to contribute in the development of tax science specifically concerning tax incentives related to venture capital and startup companies. Practically, this research is expected to provide input to the government to evaluate current policy and consider alternatives that can be applied based on practices in other countries. This research is limited to discussing tax policies contained in the Regulation of the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Indonesia Number 48/PMK.010/2018 concerning Tax Treatment of Equity Participation in Venture Capital Companies in Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises.
