Not only has there been major overhauls to Indonesia’s regulatory framework and a progressive approach to digitalisation in the last decade, in November 2020, President Joko Widodo enacted the Job Creation Law with the aim of attracting investment, creating new jobs and transforming Southeast Asia’s largest economy.

Partnering with five leading firms who are closest to the action, ITR brings you practical insight, into some of the most significant recent developments, from the Indonesian tax world.

As Indonesia becomes more of an attractive proposition for investors, the authors from RSM Indonesia explore the country’s intricate tax system, while looking to the future at the plethora of opportunities that lie ahead.

As mentioned, one such opportunity is the introduction of the Job Creation Law. DDTC’s article describes how Indonesia’s new tax regime will boost investment and accelerate economic development, in a post-pandemic era when government support through the tax system will be vital.

Meanwhile, as tax disputes steadily increase,the article from Suryani Suyanto & Associates discusses the challenges faced by multinational corporations in the context of an arm’s-length assessment of intangible properties.
