TAX FLASHKIB E-newsletter September 2020
Finance Minister, Sri Mulyani
Indrawati, stated that
Indonesia is entering the
abyss of recession after the
prediction that Indonesia's
economic growth in the third
quarter would still be negative in the range of minus 1.7 percent to
minus 0.6 percent. In detail, until the end of August 2020, the state
revenue was recorded at Rp 1,034.1 trillion. Compared to the
realization in the same period last year, which was IDR 1,190.2
trillion, our economy growth are contracted by 13.1 percent.
Entering into a recession period certainly has an impact on the
economy, which indirectly also affects the community, ranging from
increasing unemployment due to mass layoffs to low inflation due
to the loss of people's purchasing power. Moreover, cases of the
spread of Covid-19 continue to rise until now.
“I wish there was an easy
solution to these issues but
there isn’t. My ask is to do the
best you can. I also
recommend that you not fall
into the temptation of having
every waking hour be a work
from home hour just because
it can be.”

Starting August 1, 2020, all taxpayers who carry out transactions related to Income Tax Article 23/26 and
are registered at the Pratama Tax Service Office (KPP) throughout Indonesia are required to produce
withholding evidence and required to submit periodic Article 23 and/or Article 26 Income Tax Return
through e-Bupot. This obligation is stipulated in the Decree of the Director General of Taxes Number
KEP-425 / PJ / 2019.
Referring to the Regulation of the Minister of Finance (PMK) Number 12 / PMK.03 / 2014 concerning
Evidence of Income Tax Withholding and / or Collection, The e-Bupot 23/26 application is software

Article 23 and/or Article 26 Income Tax Return has become easier as the evidences will be stored in the

The national implementation of e-Faktur 3.0 application will be held on October 1, 2020. This e-Faktur
3.0 will replace e-Faktur 2.2 which is considered out of date. All taxpayers can download the latest
application at https://efaktur.pajak.go.id
There are at least 4 new features in the e-Faktur 3.0 application, namely prepopulated input taxes,
prepopulated Import Declaration (PIB), prepopulated tax return (SPT), and facility stamp code
synchronization. Prepopulated here means that it has been provided by the system. This prepopulated
concept does not contradict the self-assessment principle in the Law on General Provisions and Tax
E-Faktur 3.0 certainly helps taxable entrepreneurs (PKP) to fill periodic value-added tax (VAT) tax return,
especially form 1111 B1 for import declaration and form 1111 B2 for input VAT. Apart from that, the
application also allows a link between invoice creation and tax return reporting.
Through this system, DJP only provide the data for the taxpayers, the task of calculating, reporting, and
paying tax obligations remains in the hands of the taxpayers, not in the hands of the DJP.
It is expected that the full implementation of e-faktur 3.0 on October 1 will completely eradicated various
problems of tax invoices, both fictitious tax invoices or tax invoice manipulations that repeatedly harm
state finances and there will be no more input errors that are detrimental to tax payers, and tax payers
are able to completes the Periodic VAT tax return completely, correctly and clearly.
