On Monday, February 8th 2021 Puskas BAZNAS held a discussion to initiate the Corporate Zakat Survey. This survey was initiated to analyze the mechanism and strategies used by Zakat Institutions in collecting Zakat from companies. As corporate zakat holds one of the largest potentials in zakat collection, optimizing the potential and minimizing the gap between the zakat potential and collection is considered a crucial step which drives the initiation of this research.

The discussion was held online through the Zoom Meeting platform and was attended by the Center of Strategic Studies (Puskas BAZNAS) team, the Corporate Zakat division, and the Zakat Collection Unit Division. The purpose of the discussion was to understand the best practice of both the Zakat Collection Unit and the Corporate Zakat divisions, while also understanding the challenges and possible solutions that they face. Each division presented a presentation regarding the topic of discussion. The Corporate Zakat division was led by the Head of the division, Bapak Agus Siswanto. Meanwhile, the Zakat Collection Unit division was led by the Head of the division, Bapak Faisal Qosim.

The 1-hour meeting concluded that communication and maintaining a strong relationship with the partners was an essential step in corporate zakat collection. The results of the discussion will be further discussed in future Focus Group Discussions and in-depth interviews.
