Net Assets and Disclosure.

Then, the net assets in question are the value of assets minus the value of debt. This is as stated in Law Number 11 of 2016 concerning Tax Amnesty.

Furthermore, the reported assets are assets obtained by the taxpayer from January 1, 1985, to December 31, 2015. The net assets will then be considered as additional income and subject to final income tax.

The procedure for calculating the final income tax is to multiply the rate with the tax base. The tariff consists of 6 percent of net assets that are in the country and are invested in business activities in the SDA, EBT, and SBN processing sectors.

The details are as follows, as much as 8 percent of net assets are in the country and are not invested in the SDA, EBT, and SBN sectors. Furthermore, 6 percent of net assets are outside Indonesia with the proviso that it will be transferred to the territory of Indonesia and invested in the SDA, EBT, and SBN sectors.

Every taxpayer can disclose net assets through a price disclosure notification letter. The letter was given to the director-general of taxes from January 1, 2022, to June 30, 2022.

When disclosing net assets, taxpayers must attach several documents, such as proof of final income tax payments, a detailed list of assets along information on reported property ownership. This includes a list of debts, a statement of transferring net assets to Indonesia, and a statement of investing net assets in the SDA, EBT, and SBN business sectors.

After that, the Director-General of Taxes will issue a certificate against the submission of a notification letter on the disclosure of assets by the taxpayer.
