Tax is a central issue in investment matters no matter where you are. Because personal and corporate tax in Indonesia is a major contributor to the country’s income, the amount of tax imposed is often a determining factor for investors who are considering entering a market country.
Corporate tax or company tax refers to a tax imposed on entities that are taxed at the entity level in a particular jurisdiction. Such taxes may include income or other taxes. The tax systems of most countries impose an income tax at the entity level on certain types of entities such as companies or corporations.
Many systems additionally tax owners or members of those entities on dividends or other distributions by the entity to the members. With regard to business set-up or company registration in a country, investors may be imposed with company/corporate taxes because most countries tax all corporations doing business in the country on income or, in some cases, on several company activities in that country.
Indonesia is no exception, as it imposes both corporate taxes on companies doing business in Indonesia as well as personal income tax for the employees. Here we explain the main taxes:
Generally, a flat rate of 22% applies (becoming 20% in 2022). Public companies that satisfy a minimum listing requirement of 40% (in Indonesia Stock Exchange/IDX) and other conditions are entitled to a tax cut of 5% off the standard rate.
Small enterprises with an annual turnover of not more than IDR 50 billion are entitled to a 50% discount off the standard tax rate, which is based on the proportion of taxable income resulting in IDR 4.8 billion of gross annual turnover.
When gross turnover is below IDR 4.8 billion, the reduction applies to all taxable income and thus will be applied as a final income tax 23 with a rate of 0,5% of turnover.
A company with revenue between IDR 4.8 billion – IDR 50 billion will be taxed through article PPh 29 with a rate of 12,5% of profits, while for companies with revenue over IDR 50 billion the rate imposed will be 22% of the profit.
Some incomes earned by companies also subjected to final income tax 4 (2) withheld by third parties. This type of tax imposed on residents with several kinds of revenues, such as rental of land and /or buildings, transfer rental of land and /or buildings, fees for construction and interest income.
Special tax rates apply to specific types of corporations:
If you establish a Representative Office in Indonesia it is not allowed to generate any revenue, hence any revenue received by the Representative Office should be transferred directly to your corporate headquarters overseas.
This method may include Repatriation for Limited Liability Company (PT and PT PMA) in transferring dividends to the shareholder overseas, which will be subject to tax article PPh 26* with a general rate of 20% of dividend or according to the Tax Treaty between the countries involved, if applicable.
*PPh 26 is a local tax in Indonesia that is imposed on revenue gained in Indonesia by a foreign tax resident (either as an individual or as an organization).
Indonesia also imposes income tax on all employees who work in the private sector and state-owned companies, as well as government employees.
The most income they’ve earned is subject to income tax at the following normal tax rates:
All tax residents should register for National Tax Payer Identity Card (NPWP). Those who don’t have an NPWP are subject to an additional 20% charge on their annual tax report.
