Background  

Employees Tax (PPh 21) is a type of corporate tax that employers are required to pay in Indonesia. It is a tax levied on the wages and salaries of employees who work in Indonesia. The amount of tax that employers are required to pay depends on the amount of wages and salaries that employees earn, as well as other factors such as the number of employees, the type of business, and other relevant factors.
Employees Tax (PPh 21) is imposed and collected by the government of Indonesia and must be paid by the employer on behalf of the employee. The employer is required to withhold a certain amount of the employee’s salary and deposit it with the government. This amount is then used to pay the employee’s tax liability.

The results of this employee tax deduction must then be deposited to the government.

Implementation in Bukit Vista

Bukit Vista has grown very fast as a start-up company, as we know. As a Perusahaan Terbuka (PT. ), reporting and depositing Employees Tax is a vital responsibility. In order to report PPh 21 in the company, we created new guidelines and processes that makes the processes goes faster. The advantages obtained from implementing e-SPT for taxpayers are :

  1. Submission of SPT can be done quickly and safely, because the attachments are in the form of softcopy files
  2. The e-SPT application system organizes company tax data systematically and saves time
  3. Reducing SPT recording clerical work which consumes quite a lot of resources.
  4. E-SPT makes it easier for taxpayers to report their SPT, so that those concerned do not need to queue at the Tax Office
  5. Errors – calculation errors such as addition, subtraction, calculation of PTKP, calculation of tax payable, etc. will be minimized, so that the risk of rectifying the SPT due to these errors can be avoided
  6. Save time on the work of inputting transaction data carried out by staff. It will take longer if we input data using the excel or word.
  7. The risk of data security/security will be safer because reporting does not use hardcopy (especially SPT attachments), so that tax data is not known by other parties.
Based on the advantages mentioned above, of course the taxation process at Bukit Vista will be much more efficient.
