Foreign tax credit

Tax paid or payable in foreign countries upon income from abroad received or obtained by a resident taxpayer may be credited against tax payable in Indonesia in the same fiscal year.

The amount of tax credit is the same amount as income tax paid or payable abroad, but shall not exceed tax payable calculated according to the Indonesian tax law.

Revaluation of fixed assets

Certain taxpayers may apply for fixed asset revaluation for tax purposes with approval from the DGT. The excess of the fair market value over the tax book value of the revalued assets is subject to final income tax at a rate of 10%.

Income tax concessions

CIT reduction

The MoF may provide an avenue for CIT reduction of 10% to 100% of the CIT due for 5 to 15 years from the start of commercial production. A maximum reduction of 50% may be provided to firms in telecommunication and information industries with new capital investment plans of IDR 500 billion to IDR 1 trillion. The period can be extended to 20 years if it is deemed necessary for the national interest.

This facility is provided to firms in pioneer industries that have a wide range of connections, provide additional value and high externalities, introduce new technologies, and have strategic value for the national economy. Currently, this facility is available for the following business sectors:

  • Upstream metal.
  • Oil refinery industry and/or infrastructure, including those under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme.
  • Base organic chemicals sourced from oil and gas.
  • Machinery.
  • Telecommunication and information.
  • Sea transportation.
  • Processing industry on agriculture, forestry, and fishery products.
  • Economic infrastructure other than those under the PPP scheme.

An application must be submitted to the Investment Coordinating Board (Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal or BKPM) Chairman. A proposal for the MoF's approval will be made by the BKPM Chairman after carrying out research on the applicant. Under the latest regulation, the proposal can be submitted to the MoF until 15 August 2018.

Inbound investment incentives

The MoF may provide the following tax concessions to PT companies following their investment in certain designated business areas or in certain designated regions:

  • A reduction in net income of up to 30% of the amount invested, prorated at 5% for six years of the commercial production, provided that the assets invested are not transferred out within six years.
  • Accelerated depreciation and/or amortisation deductions.
  • Extension of tax losses carryforward for up to ten years.
  • A reduction of the WHT rate on dividends paid to non-residents to 10% (or lower if treaty relief is available).

The applicant must meet one of the following high-level criteria to be eligible for the above tax facilities:

  • High investment value or for export purposes.
  • High absorption of manpower.
  • High local content.

Recommendation from the BKPM Chairman must firstly be obtained, together with the application for investment approval, before MoF approval for the tax facilities can be sought.

Special Economic Zones (Kawasan Ekonomi Khusus or KEKs)

Taxpayers conducting business in KEKs may enjoy tax facilities. The business should cover the main activities determined for each KEK. The designation of an area as a KEK is set out in a specific government regulation.

CIT reduction facility may be granted for new taxpayers with new capital invested in the production chain of main activities in a KEK, as described below:

Investment plan (IDR, in billions) Reduction period (in years) CIT reduction
Less than 500 5 to 15 MoF discretion
500 up to 1,000 5 to 15 20% to 100%
More than 1,000 10 to 25 20% to 100%

Taxpayers being rejected for the CIT reduction facility and taxpayers carrying out other activities in a KEK may apply for similar inbound investment incentives under the income tax concessions.

On top of the above income tax facilities, taxpayers in a KEK are also entitled to the following tax facilities:

  • Non-collection of VAT and LST on importation of certain goods.
  • Non-collection of Article 22 Income Tax on importation of certain goods.
