Tax Return Indonesia


Understanding Tax Return in Indonesia

Submitting accurate and timely tax reports is not just a financial obligation but also a legal requirement in Indonesia.

Every taxpayer in Indonesia is legally obligated to submit tax reports under the relevant provisions of the Taxation Law. The Indonesian Directorate General of Tax (DJP) relies on the regular tax report to assess a taxpayer’s tax liability. Inaccurate or incomplete reports can lead to incorrect assessments and potential tax disputes.

Types of Tax Returns in Indonesia

Annual Income Tax Return (Form 1770): Mandatory for residents exceeding the Personal Income Tax (PIT) Non-Taxable Threshold (PTKP). Reports income from employment, investments, other sources, and deductions. Annual Corporate Income Tax Return (Form 1771): Filed by companies engaged in business activities in Indonesia, reporting annual income, expenses, taxes withheld, and taxable income. Value Added Tax (VAT) Return (Form 110): This is filed monthly by businesses registered for VAT. It reports taxable sales, purchases, and calculates the VAT liability.
Monthly Individual Income Tax Return (Form 1721): Filed by employers withholding PIT at source from employee salaries and paying to the tax office.
