PPh21 Calculation

An Overview of Indonesia’s Income Tax (PPh21) Regulations Updates

In late 2023, the government introduced Peraturan Pemerintah (PP) 58/2023, marking a crucial update focused on simplifying the calculation of the effective rate for withholding PPh 21 or Income Tax Article 21. PPh 21 is a tax category applied to various forms of income, including salaries, wages, honoraria, allowances, and other payments received by employees. This modification addresses the necessity for a more streamlined process, as the previous formula was considered excessively complex and susceptible to errors. Key Changes in PPh21 Calculation The core of the update centers around the implementation of the Tarif Efektif Rata-rata (TER) or average effective rate. TER serves as the percentage rate used to calculate PPh21 for each taxpayer, with variations based on their PTKP (non-taxable income) status and gross salary. So, under the new PP regulations, PPh21 is now calculated solely by multiplying the taxpayer’s gross income by their respective TER. Shortly after this update, PMK 168/2023 was issued. This document serves as a detailed guide, explaining and clarifying how PP 58/2023 should be put into practice. Concerning the new tax calculation, the next question is: how do I know my TER rate? Let’s delve deeper into it! Understanding TER TER is categorized into two types: Monthly TER and Daily TER, determined by the taxpayer’s employment type. Exploring Monthly TER Monthly TER is applied to permanent or full-time employees receiving a monthly income. The system categorizes taxpayers into three groups based on their PTKP Status, which are listed below. Moreover, the TER rate varies within each category depending on the taxpayer’s gross monthly salary. Here is a comprehensive list of the Monthly TER rates: Exploring Daily TER Daily TER, on the other hand, caters to freelancers with daily income. The TER rate in this category is categorized as follows: Determining Your PPh 21 As previously mentioned, the latest regulation was crafted to streamline the calculation of PPh 21. To calculate your PPh 21, use the following updated formula: Daily Worker Employee For daily income up to IDR2,500,000, the daily tax is calculated as Daily Gross Income x Daily TER. For daily income exceeding IDR2,500,000, the daily tax is calculated as Daily Gross x 50% x Tax rate in Article 17. In the case of income received on a non-daily basis, the gross income is the average of the daily income. PMK 168/2023 explains more detailed calculations regarding the changes to the old regulation. It also includes sample calculations for a better understanding. In summary, the to-be tax calculation scheme for all employee types is reflected as follows: Conclusion: In summary, the recent adjustments to Indonesia’s Income Tax (PPh21) Regulations signal a notable progression toward a more efficient and accurate tax calculation framework. The implementation of the Tarif Efektif Rata-rata (TER) underscores a commitment to simplifying processes and improving transparency. These updates aim to not only facilitate the calculation of PPh21 but also contribute to the overarching goal of creating a clearer and more error-resistant tax environment. As taxpayers adapt to these changes, the emphasis on TER stands as a key element in achieving a streamlined and effective income tax system in Indonesia. As taxpayers, it’s crucial for us to understand Indonesia’s changing tax rules. Amidst the constant changes and adjustments, maintaining awareness becomes especially vital, especially for business owners ensuring on-time and accurate salary payments to employees. Fortunately, you can rely on DataOn HRIS, SunFish Workplaze, which offers a comprehensive Payroll Management Software designed to seamlessly adapt to these changes.

2023 in Review – Celebrating a Year of Firsts, Milestones, and Innovation

As 2023 draws to a close, we at DataOn and Humanica are filled with pride and excitement as we reflect on the incredible  journey we’ve shared. This year has been pivotal, marked by the completion of our merger integration, successful milestones, joint growth, and groundbreaking innovation. Our First Year Post-Merger: Unity in Progress This year marks the first anniversary of our transformative merger, and it is safe to say we’ve not only integrated very well but also achieved new heights of success together. From the outset, our focus was on creating a unified entity that leveraged the strengths of both legacy companies. Throughout the year, we held joint integrations, collaborative conferences, product and knowledge exchange programs, which laid the foundation of our success and fostered a culture of collaboration. The result? A number of great achievements & successes! The financial results in the first year as a combined entity speak for themselves. We have achieved a remarkable 32% revenue growth and an impressive 23% net profit margin by the end of Q3. This not only showcases our growth but also underscores our financial stability. Moreover, our unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction was evident in our 99% retention rate. Our internal customer satisfaction surveys echoed this sentiment, with a 4.7 out of 5 rating. This success would not have been possible without our incredible employees, whose dedication and enthusiasm was evident throughout this year. Their 4.4 out of 5 satisfaction rating is a testament to the positive impact of our merger and the vibrant culture we’re building. Workplaze Takes Center Stage Central to our success was the adoption of Workplaze, our flagship HCM platform, across all entities. Its intuitive interface and powerful features have allowed us to set new standards in how we manage projects, productivity, learning, talent and employee engagement in our new multi- company, multi- business unit environment.  In order to move forward together in alignment, we also embraced a new management style in 2023 with the adoption of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs). This new framework facilitated communication of shared goals and business vision and helped synchronize the efforts across our global teams to achieve the jointly defined objectives.  New Business Initiatives and Expansion Embracing change and setting new standards weaved like a red thread throughout the year. Firstly, we successfully transitioned to accounting and audit standards applicable to publicly listed companies, which Humanica Ltd is, ensuring transparency and compliance with industry benchmarks. Secondly, we worked diligently on receiving the ISO 27701 and SOC 2 Type 2 certifications all year. Obtaining the  ISO 27701 certificate on September 23, 2023 and being ready for the SOC 2 Audit validates our dedication and commitment to data security, privacy, and compliance. Aside from the internal adjustments, DataOn – Humanica continued to grow. Our strategic investment in SunFish DataOn Philippines expands our footprint and market presence in Southeast Asia and strengthens our position as a regional leader in end-to-end HCM software and people solutions. Simultaneously, the launch of Humanica Consulting Services (HCS) broadened our offerings to include human capital advisory addressing the growing demand for comprehensive HR consulting services in the region. HCS offers a range of services encompassing the development and execution of HR transformation strategies, managing the change process, workforce intelligence analytics and advisory so that we can optimally support our clients through their HR transformation journeys. Innovating for Tomorrow’s Workplace:  Empowering Businesses, One New Feature at a Time Continual investment in new technologies and product innovation is the key promise we have and will always make to our customers in order to support their unique and evolving HR needs and wants. 2023 was no exception. Looking at industry trends and talking to our customers has led to the introduction of numerous advanced functionalities in Workplaze.  The first half of the year saw the incorporation of two major new business processes, Project Management and CRM, in the Workplaze platform. These new features allow companies to track projects/ tasks fulfillment as well as sales opportunity/ activity within their HRIS platform and link them to timesheets, work recording, productivity monitoring, and performance. Innovation also focused on more personalization and flexibility by adding new functions for Flexible Benefits, Mobile Timesheets, Video-based Recruitment Interviews, Design Builder, and more. These new capabilities set Workplaze apart from its competition and bring it a step closer to a well-rounded workforce management solution that cares about employee engagement just as much as driving business results thus catering to the different needs of various stakeholders that interact with HRIS systems. The latter half of the year was dominated by significant advancements of AI integration into our platform, unveiled at our Annual HR Conference on Nov 2, 2023 in Jakarta, Indonesia in front of an audience of 800 participants. These features, including AI-driven HR Executive Reports, Predictive Resignation, AI-driven Content Creation, CV parsing tools, and an HR Chatbot Assistant, signify our dedication to empowering businesses with cutting-edge technology. Nurturing Relationships and Recognition Our dedication to innovation resonated strongly, expanding our customer base significantly to 70 new Workplaze customers (as of Q3). Prestigious names like CEVA, KWE, Royal Lestari Natural Rubber, Antam, The Landmark, Colgate, EUROKARS, J Trust Bank, Deloitte, and many more, placed their trust in our solutions. Notably, securing Thai Airways as a partner in September 2023 marked a pivotal moment, demonstrating our capacity to cater to large, esteemed organizations. Last but not least, Workplazed joined software review platforms G2 and Gartner Peer Insight this year, encouraging users to publicly share their Workplaze experience with peers, us, and potential buyers. Within the relatively short time frame of our entry, we have garnered  combined 100 positive reviews and a commendable 4.4 happiness rating, validating our dedication to delivering excellence.

That small production turned into a mini bag shop and from there underwent a remarkable success story driven by innovation, creativity and the desire to empower people to reach their full potential. To date, Eiger has 3 Flagship Stores, 34 showrooms and 237 stores spread throughout Indonesia and has just started tapping into global markets with the opening of its first overseas store in Switzerland.

Starting out as a small bag-shop over two decades ago, Eiger today sells outdoor apparel and equipment in product categories Mountaineering, Riding, and Authentic 1989, catering to climbers, bikers, and hikers who love classic designs.  The name EIGER was inspired by the famous Eiger mountain in the Swiss Alps, whose north face wall ranks amongst the most challenging and dangerous ascents to climb. The mountain serves well as a metaphor for Eigers own successful journey to the top of the lifestyle product industry – from humble beginnings with two sewing machines to a globally operating retailer with 250 stores in 137 cities across the archipelago and in Switzerland. Through consistently hard work, strong will, and commitment, Eiger built award-winning products and an outstanding reputation receiving several prestigious recognition, such as the Upakarti from the Indonesian government, The Shahwali Award for environmental commitment, and the Arch of Europe Gold Star Award for Quality for commitment to the highest standard. Besides focusing on outdoor activities, EIGER prioritizes environmental sustainability and social responsibility, aiming to educate and inspire people on green life, Expedition, and Responsibility. In their own words, the company aspirations are: Employees are Eiger’s heart and soul Eigerindo credits its success to its people. The company’s culture is dedicated to empowering their employees and inspiring greatness. Collaboration, feedback and growth are the pillars of their people’s practice. As Hendra Lim explains: “We have something truly special that we fondly refer to as S.H.A.R.E. (Servanthood, Harmony, Agile, Respect, and Empowerment). SHARE isn’t just a guideline; it’s more like a guiding compass for every step our employees take.

S.H.A.R.E. plays a critical role in Eigerindo’s mission to provide experiential customer satisfaction in the lifestyle businesses with their  culture and great people. Eigerindo’s S.H.A.R.E. principle serves another purpose, which is to give employees a clear and consistent understanding of the company’s goals and to ensure that their behavior and efforts are aligned with the company’s objectives and strategic direction. “HRIS  is not just a tool, it’s a game-changer” and Digitalization helps to maximize its benefits For Eigerindo MPI, HR is a key business partner that plays a vital role in fine-tuning every aspect of their Human Capital operations. More than that, their HR team is considered the driving force behind the company’s ability to build a resilient organization with a unique competitive edge as well as its readiness to overcome any challenges that cross their way in the future. As a company that is at the forefront of innovation, Eigerindo MPI is fully aware of the benefits modern technology can deliver to achieve great results in process optimization, streamlining workflows, managing people, data & outcomes, and in providing a good employee experience. So, as their headcount and locations grew, the company quickly decided to properly support its workforce management with a digital HR platform. As Mr. Farhan Noer Widagdo, Retail Human Capital Business Partner Supervisor of Eigerindo puts it best: “We emphasize the digitalization and automation of strategic HR modules by transforming Employee Data, Payroll, Performance, Training, and Recruitment modules into an HRIS system by using the SunFish HR Solutions.” Underpinning their HR management and workflow structures with technology has had a considerable impact for the Eigerindo team in reducing time for administrative activities as well as better data integration.  A very noticeable difference Mr. Farhan highlights two very important tangible benefits that his team cherishes the most out of all the improvements SunFish made on their operation: He estimates that thanks to the single platform data access and automation SunFish provides, human errors in data processing have dropped below 1%.

Today, its operation spans a 20,000 sqm  state-of-the-art  factory located in Bogor, West Java, marketing offices all over Indonesia, the sales of its product in SEA, the Middle East, Europe and America. Key Achievements Fully integrated, complete set of functions that unifies current and old data from all HR areas in one central system Process Standardization across all functions of HR and for all employees and locations Employee related data and files are easy to find, they are consistent and accurate Connecting attendance records and resignations with Payroll to avoid over payments Mapping hierarchies, positions and people of their organizational structures and having a complete picture of  vacant position Ability to do targeted recruitment based on vacant positions and do proper manpower planning Industry: Pharmaceuticals, Personal Skin Care, Distribution & Logistics, Manufacturing, Health Services Employees: 850 Established: in 1960 Locations:  Jakarta, Bogor, and marketing offices in all big cities in Indonesia Project Goal: Across-the-board HR process standardization for Core HR functions as well as Talent Management and Recruitment and to have one central platform for all HR activities and data Galenium Pharmasia Laboratories: Nurturing Health, Empowering Quality PT Galenium Pharmasia Laboratories is a manufacturer and distributor of a wide range of high-quality health, skin care and cosmetic products. Starting out as a home business in 1960 by Dr. Joesoef Bagindo Sutan and his son Eddy, the company has grown into a large national scale operation over the last 30 years that boosts a 20,000 sqm factory and logistics facility in Bogor and 850 employees to support the production of its high-quality products and their sales in Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Europe and America. While family favorite baby skin care brand, Calendine, is their flagship, the company also markets other well-known brands such as Clarite Laxacod, Laxadilac, Galpain, Selefit, Imunex and many more. Committed to high quality standards in their production and operation Galenium Pharmasia Laboratories obtained several certifications over the year including the “Sertifikasi Sistem Jaminan Halal (SJH) from MUI, the Quality Management System ISO 9001:2018 and Occupational Health and Safety Management System: ISO 45001:2018. After years of frustration with their manual HR processes, the Galenium HR team decided in 2020 that it was time to hold their internal HR operation to the same high standards that are applied to their products. Galenium’s pain points with their manual HR procedures Despite spanning a nationwide operation, with a head office in Jakarta, a factory in Bogor and many marketing offices in all big cities across the archipelago, Galenium’s HR team relied on manual processes for their human resource (HR) management. Trying to manage 850 people in so many different locations is not an easy task. Often the company’s HR team was trapped in a time-consuming cycle of trying to find employee records, work history or performance files, trying to find out the correct attendance data of employees to ensure correct salary payment, or attempting to reconcile different sets of data.  Out-of-date organizational structures and employee profile and movement records One of the issues that bothered the HR team was their inability to get a clear, up-to-date picture of their organizational structures and employee records. The manual process made it difficult to get a real-life snapshot of their internal department and position hierarchies and the employees that filled these positions. Paper-based tracking of employee movements between locations, job rotations, promotions, resignations and finding those records later added to headache. Without a centralized system, consistently updating and finding very basic information proved to be an arduous task. Irregular attendance monitoring and payroll issues The real impact of the manual HR management was felt in the correlation of attendance and payroll. In Galenium’s case attendance is linked to the salary payment. So tracking clock in and out time is crucial for the company. Unfortunately, due to the absence of an automated system, the team frequently faced irregular attendance records. The issues ranged from inconsistent or half available data to no data at all, which made it difficult for the HR team to decide how to proceed with the salary payments. The impact on the payroll was additionally felt with resigning staff. Paper files and no visibility into attendance records and slow communication from the locations side, made it hard for HR to know employees real resignation dates and whether they should receive a full or partial month’s salary. Delays and miscalculations were the results because of it. Impossible to get historical data for performance reviews Despite spending a significant amount of time on basic HR administration and operation, Galenium’s HR team was still committed to their annual performance reviews. But every year again, they struggled to find various files that go into it. “When we need historical data as a basis for our Talent Management discussions and reviews, we have to go look for the physical files first. It takes time. Sometimes we would find out they have been stored in warehouses and sometimes we would find out that they have been destroyed.” Recruitment mismatched with needs Another source of frustration for the team related back to the unavailability of up-to-date organizational structure because that also meant not having a complete picture of overall vacancies in the company. Hence, doing accurate manpower planning and then conducting targeted hiring for only positions in need at the locations in need was near impossible. The HR team was rarely aware of managers’ requests for manpower, and when they did recruit the process of searching, filtering and hiring the right talent took a long time. Galenium’s HR Transformation Journey  That thought became the HR team’s mindset and to resolve their issues and unlock the full potential of their HR department, Galenium decided to embrace a fully integrated HR system. After convincing their management of the lack of efficiency in their current structure,

Founded in 1982 through a joint venture between Komatsu Ltd and PT United Tractors, the company began by assembling components into finished units. Within a few years, Komatsu Indonesia released its first product D85A-18 bulldozer, increased its production capacity with a second plant, and began exporting components to Japan. Establishing its cross and multi-sourcing strategies and a new full-scale manufacturing facility comprising a complete machinery plant as well as components, strengthened Komatsu Indonesia’s  position as a world-wide supplier and partner. Throughout their journey, Komatsu Indonesia has consistently expanded its portfolio of innovative, high-quality products while staying agile in response to market dynamics, all guided by their ‘Continuous Improvement’- Principle. This principle extends to all aspects of their operation including customer service orientation and the management of their 2254 employees spread across Indonesia. As a unique blend of Japanese and Indonesian cultures, Komatsu Indonesia places great value on discipline and hard work. Therefore, they emphasize communication, collaboration, skill development and work-life balance to empower their teams in performing in alignment with these values and the company’s goals. Empowering a sustainable future – The KOMATSU Way Komatsu Indonesia credits its success to its highly skilled employees, whose commitment to quality and innovation is a driver of the company’s strength from the get go. ‘Creating highly motivated & capable employees’ is one of Komatsu’s three mission statements and they show that in the way they manage their people. Focused on talent developments, the company provides a dynamic and high-spirited workplace where plenty of opportunities to enhance skills, experiences and accomplishments can be found. With the help of innovative technologies their teams are given the tools to continuously improve their capacities with the ultimate goal of maintaining the company’s top position in the industry. Komatsu Indonesia has supported the management of its workforce with SunFish since 2005 which was in version 3 at that time. Back then the company was focused on headcount visibility, timely payroll, attendance tracking, simplified reporting to headquarters and training. According to Miss Eva, the inefficiencies in  these areas were Komatsu Indonesia’s core pain points: “Previously, every process in HR and Personnel flow, such as attendance, reimbursement, payroll, performance, and training were done conventionally and manually using MS Excel. We needed a lot of manpower to hasten the process.” Recognized for its excellence in operations, Komatsu was designated as the center of operations for all of Indonesia in 2006. In that new function, the team had to provide HR shared services to five subsidiaries in multiple locations including managing their payroll. Having to adjust quickly to the responsibilities, the Komatsu Indonesia HR team upgraded to SunFish version 5 to support the new multi-company environment and shared service delivery model better. The HR team derived tremendous benefits from the automation of their HR including: Centralized and speedy  payroll process from a day to one hour Automated tax calculation and reliable year-end tax estimations ePayslips removed a day of cutting and distributing 2000 employee paper payslips Fast leave request to approval workflow Many report options with real-time data cut a day of report creation in Excel Ability to interface data from ID swipe card with other attendance functionalities and payroll With SunFish, Komatsu Indonesia had found a solution that was an ideal match to their requirements then and was scalable to grow with them in the future. Thus, started a long-lasting partnership that is fruitful still today. As the company grew and changed over the years, so did SunFish to accommodate their journey. The Pandemic as Catalyst for more Innovation Everything was working smoothly and in-sync until the pandemic took hold of the world and upset work life as we knew it. Suddenly confronted with new regulations regarding work-from-home and work-from-office, Komatsu Indonesia’s SunFish 5 attendance feature lacked the depth of functionality to track work-from-home work hours and the tasks employees were working on. Following the Komatsu way, the company dealt with this new situation head on by innovating their HR once more. In 2020 Komatsu upgraded to the then latest version SunFish 6. In the latest upgrade, Komatsu Indonesia not only improved and deepened functionalities in the original core functions to track productivity better but also digitized more operational processes including reimbursement, performance and training. Moreover, it embraced the SunFish mobile app to provide the ultimate employee experience and implement the required WFH regulations. The main gains of the new version were in the: deeper functionality of the HR system in general, more: more reports, more attendance features, improved data verification, better data display, graphical data visualization, improved user workflows, etc.; the automation and integration of other HR processes such as reimbursement and loan, performance, and training; the ability to decrease the payroll process cycle from 1 hour to 15 minutes for all employees; standardizing
