In Indonesia, tax obligations are settled monthly as well as annually by either direct payments, third party withholding or combination of both. Monthly tax instalments are based on the most recent tax returns of the tax payer and constitute the prepayment of the current year corporation tax liability.

As the deadline for the annual corporate tax payment and corporate tax return filing approaches for most businesses (End of April), it is compulsory for all businesses and individuals to pay their taxes and file their tax returns otherwise late payment can result in financial penalty.
