Indonesia’s vibrant economy and increasingly educated workforce have led the country to become an appealing hub for businesses looking to expand to Southeast Asia. Yet, with a unique set of labor laws and regulations, foreign employers often face difficulties when setting up and managing their payroll system.

While Indonesia’s payroll laws and regulations apply to all industries, the complex web of laws and regulations remains a challenge for employers. The country’s tax obligations, social security contributions, minimum wage, and leave entitlement for employees require precise understanding to ensure employers remain compliant.

In this webinar, Jennifer Halim, International Business Advisory Manager, and Cruisietta Kaylana, Associate of the HR & Payroll Unit, offer a detailed guide to ensure payroll compliance in Indonesia. They also discuss important factors for businesses starting operations in the country, especially regarding employee and labor laws.

  • Indonesian current labor market and development projection
  • Understanding Indonesia's social security, income tax, and the new update for benefits-in-kind tax regulation
  • Indonesian payroll methods, process, and compliance requirements
  • Distinctions in benefits between permanent and contract employees
  • Payroll requirements for expatriate employees

Whether you are considering expanding into Indonesia or have established your presence in the market, this webinar offers valuable guidance in managing payroll effectively.
