Normally, corporate income tax that is used in Indonesia is as much as 25%. This rate starts for the fiscal year of 2010 onward. Public companies that satisfy a minimum listing requirement of 40% and other special conditions are entitled to a tax cut of 5% off the standard rate. Thus, it gives them a standard rate of 20%. Some of those special conditions are:
- At least 40% of their paid in shares are publicly owned;
- The public should consist of at least 300 individuals when each one holding less than five percent of the paid in shares
- These two conditions are maintained for at least six months (183 days) in one tax year.
If either or both conditions are not met in a particular year, the facility is not applicable for that tax year.
Resident corporate taxpayers with gross revenue up to IDR 50 billion entitle to a 50% reduction of the standard tax rate which is imposed proportionally on taxable income for gross revenue up to IDR 4.8 billion.
