Having a business partner on the ground is invaluable when you are setting up a company in Indonesia

Once established, that partner can be critically important when it comes to smooth payroll processing in Indonesia

Like many other aspects of doing business in Indonesia, regulations governing payroll and related taxes and deductions are complex. It is vital to make sure that they are calculated and remitted correctly, and all tax reports are filed.

The first thing that must be taken in to account is Jamsostek, which is the state-owned company that manages the social insurance fund for the private sector. Each company must register with Jamsostek and obtain a Jamsostek certificate and cards for all employees.

Payroll processing in Indonesia

Jamsostek has four insurance offerings, the first three of which are part of a mandatory package for all private formal sector employees.

  • Occupational injury – This covers work-related injuries and occupational diseases, as well as travel accidents that may occur on the way to work. The company covers the cost of occupational accident insurance, which comprise 0.3% of a person´s wages.
  • Life insurance – Employers must pay the entire contribution for an employee´s life insurance, which is 0.24% – 1.74%.
  • Retirement benefits – Both parties make contributions, with the employer being responsible for 3.7% of wages and the employee for 2.0% of wages.
  • Health Insurance – This is an optional program that requires a married employee to pay 6% of wages, and a single person to pay 3%. Employers who have a better health insurance packages can opt not to participate.

In addition to the package calculations, the system requires employers report to Jamsostek a record of all new and resigned employees.

Proper payroll processing includes setting up a database to calculate all the deductions, preparing payroll slips – whether electronic or paper copy – and calculating take-home pay. Companies must also prepare and file required monthly and annual reports on Jamsostek, employee income taxes, retirement benefits and the annual income tax forms for each employee.

    What is the difference between Payroll Processing and Payroll Outsourcing? What is structure of your fee for payroll service in Indonesia?

  8. Cekindo says:

    Hi James,

    Payroll processing is service where we only calculate your payroll includes monthly payroll, detail payslips, payroll summary and some deductions e.g. for taxes, social-health insurance. While in payroll outsourcing, Cekindo does not only do calculation but as well we do the transfer of salary directly to each of your employee and pay the tax, health-social insurance to the related institution. In this service, there will be implementation fee (one time payment only in the beginning for the preparation and adjusted all your payroll data to our payroll system) and then there would be monthly fee which the amount will depend on number of your employees.

    I have been working in Indonesia between Mar 2015 and Aug 2016. Between Jan 2016 and Aug 2016, my employer had made deductions on my salary to pay for the various insurance schemes. I’m not of Indonesian nationality, i was told by another colleague, I can claim from my former employer for the insurance deductions. Is that true? Appreciate if you can outline what employees are entitled to claim from the employer after they leave employment. Thanks.
