  • Personal Tax while on IMTA

    Hi guys,
    I have been working for an Indonesian company for two years now. I have had two working permits with them and everything seems to be legit until now. I have two questions here:
    Q1: Is the company responsible for my income tax?
    Q2: I received a Bukti Potong PPH PSL 21 and have been asked to submit this to the tax office myself, should this be my responsibility?

    I was under the understanding that hiring a foreigner meant they were responsible for all these matters?

    Q1: Is the company responsible for my income tax?

    Q2: I received a Bukti Potong PPH PSL 21 and have been asked to submit this to the tax office myself, should this be my responsibility? ...

    (I) I hope you also have a Work KITAS/e-ITAS and your employer already got your tax number card (NPWP) in your behalf .

    Q1. The company is responsible to deduct the income tax from your monthly salary and pay it to the Indonesian Tax Office in your behalf .

    Q2. It is your responsibility to present the Annual Tax Return Report to the Indonesian Tax Office . There is a small fine if you don't do it (I guess around Rp150'000) .
    The report is submitted with the employer statement of deducted income tax (possibly this PPH PSL 21 you mentioned , I don't know because I only did it when I was not working here) .

    I guess most of the foreigners don't do it , but it may be in your own benefit to do it because I think you can get some money back (at least in my country it is like that) .

    When I did it , I presented it at the end of March (but the Law allows different time for presenting it , depending on when you started working) . At any time you can ask questions at any Kantor Pajak , but usually in March they make a big arrangement outside of the building to cope with the many many people who look for information and present the reports . There is an online system now , but I don't know how it works .

      Q1. The company is reponsible for what marcus said.

      Q2. It is your responsibility to declare your income. It should be done before april. So you still have 5 days to do so. If you're too late, you will get a Rp 100.000, - fine. The fine will not be raised with time passed. So no worries there.

      I am doing my wife's tax and she is Indonesian. I assume you are a foreigner so maybe you need another form than my wife does, but it is pretty simple and you can do it online.

      To declare online, you need first an EFIN number.

      Download the form here:
      https://www.online-pajak.com/sites/d...asi%20EFIN.pdf

      Fill in the form and take it to a nearby tax office. You will get the EFIN number from the tax officer.

      Activate your EFIN number here:
      djponline.pajak.go.id/resendlink

      This is the link where you can declare your income:
      djponline.pajak.go.id/account/login

      You need:
      1. Make an account and register your EFIN number
      2. Declare your income (E-Filing). When done,
      3. Make a Tax bill for yourself (E-billing) when according to your declaration you need to pay something. Enter the amount you'll have to pay. If you have just 1 company you work for, you probably don't have to pay anything.
      4. Print your e-bill
      5. Pay your tax via internet banking. If your bank doesn't have the option to pay taxes, you can pay at Bank BPD or Post office.

        I forgot to say. If you rather like meeting a person to declare your income, you can always bring your Annual salary report, that you got from your company, to the tax office and say you want to declare your income. The tax officer will do it for you. You'll get an e-bill afterwards if you need to pay something.

        Beware that it can be very busy at the tax office. Also this is the last week to declare one's income, so I guess it's going to be busy.
