The Indonesian tax environment can be very bureaucratic and is characterized by frequent changes in implementing regulations. Often these lack clarity or full consideration of commercial impact, or are inconsistent and contradictory.
We assist with interpretation of the implications of the regulations in place and with changes as they occur. In addition we offer a full range of compliance and advisory services to ensure that exposures are limited and known and surprises minimized.
Of special note is our tax diagnostic review service, where we assess the level of compliance and identify exposures or weaknesses that need to be addressed and how this should be done, but also focus on highlighting areas in which efficiencies may be introduced. For example, a change in remuneration policy may result in a reduction in overall tax costs, or there may be merit in hiving off a division (or merging) to benefit from reduced income tax rates or the ability to credit VAT inputs.
