What Is Withholding Taxes?

Withholding taxes in Indonesia are the responsibility of the party who is paying. In this case, the payer must withhold or collect the taxes involved. Taxes are applicable to both individuals and corporations. They are levied on a range of payments.

Resident corporations can expect to pay 15% in taxes while individuals pay 10%. If your company has a gross turnover that is less than IDR 50 million, you are eligible for a 50% reduction in your corporate tax rate. 3E Accounting’s Withholding Tax Services in Indonesia can handle the calculations for you.

If your company is a resident of Indonesia, you will be taxed based on the income you earn worldwide (if any).


Who Need to Pay Withholding Taxes?

If you are a foreigner with a resident business in Indonesia, you will need to comply with the same tax obligations as the locals. Whether you are a resident of Indonesia or not, withholding taxes will apply to you. You may also be eligible for reductions depending on certain tax treaties.

Calculating and determining the amount of taxes you must pay can be tricky. It is highly recommended that you seek the counsel of professional tax services like 3E Accounting for guidance. This ensures that minimal mistakes are made in the long run. You also avoid the risk of incurring penalties for mistakes that get made.
