    Some accounting and tax obligations in Indonesia include:

    Corporate Income Tax Tax rates 

    • Generally, a flat rate of 25% applies. Public companies that satisfy a minimum listing requirement of 40% and other conditions are entitled to a tax cut of 3% off the standard rate, giving them an effective tax rate of 19%. 
    • Small enterprises, i.e. corporate taxpayers with an annual turnover of not more than IDR 50 billion, are entitled to a 50% discount of the standard tax rate which is imposed proportionally on taxable income of the part of gross turnover up to IDR 4.8 billion. 

    Corporate tax returns

    • Indonesia uses a self-assessment system for corporate income tax purposes. Monthly returns must be filed by the 20th day of the following month and annual returns within four months of the end of the book year, although the deadline may be extended by up to two months. 
    • The deadline for payment of the monthly corporate income tax installments is the 15th day of the following month. The deadline for payment of withholding tax is the 10th day of the following month. Annual corporate income tax payments must be made before the relevant tax return is filed.

    Value Added Tax (VAT)

    • The standard rate of VAT is 10%, increasing to 11% as from 1 April 2022. Exports of taxable tangible goods, certain taxable intangible goods, and certain taxable services are zero-rated.
    • LST rates range from 10% to 200%, depending on the type of luxury goods. Exports of luxury goods are subject to 0% LST.


    • Entrepreneurs who deliver taxable goods and/or taxable services exceeding IDR 4.8 billion in a fiscal year must register for VAT purposes and issue VAT invoices on the delivery of taxable goods and/or taxable services. 
    • Entrepreneurs domiciled in free trade zones are not required to register.

    Filing and payment: 

    • Indonesia uses a self-assessment system for VAT. A monthly VAT return must be filed by the end of the following month, while the monthly VAT payment deadline is before the VAT return is filed. 
    • The deadline for payment of self-assessed VAT on the utilization of taxable intangible goods or taxable services from abroad is the 15th day of the month following the period when the VAT becomes due.
