In Indonesia, tax disputes can arise from the following situations:

  • During a tax audit: If you are tax audited, the tax auditors from the Indonesian Tax Office (ITO) would examine your tax reporting along with your financial statements and other financial data. In most cases, you may have some disagreements on the tax corrections they propose. During this process, you must be able to argue with solid technical arguments supported by relevant documents. Otherwise, their proposed corrections will automatically translate to tax assessments.
  • During an objection process: An objection process is the next stage after a tax audit. If you disagree with a particular tax assessment, you may proceed to the objection stage. During the objection stage, you must submit an objection letter, which will be the basis of further discussions with the ITO.
  • During tax appeal: If the ITO rejects your objection, you can still fight your case in the tax court.
  • During tax reconsideration: Under certain circumstances, you may still not agree with the tax court decision regarding your tax appeals. If this were your situation, you might bring the tax court decisions on your appeals or complaints to the Supreme Court for reconsideration.
