What is NPWP?

NPWP stands for Taxpayer Identification Number, which is a special number given to taxpayers as a means of tax administration. This number can also be used as self-identification or identity of taxpayers in terms of exercising their rights and obligations to pay taxes.

For those who have met the requirements both subjectively and objectively and in accordance with the provisions of the tax laws and regulations, they must register themselves at the office of the Directorate General of Taxes in order to be registered as a Taxpayer and obtain an NPWP. This objective requirement means the requirements governing that taxpayers have received or earned income from their work.

How to register for NPWP can also be done online and offline. If online, namely through the official website of the Director General of Taxes, namely at or . Meanwhile, if offline, it can be done by visiting the Tax Service Office (KPP) directly and bringing the document requirements.

What is the Function of NPWP?

  • Facility in tax administration in Indonesia.
  • As identification or identity of taxpayers to exercise their tax rights and obligations.
  • Maintain order in efforts to pay taxes and supervise tax administration.
  • Included in every tax document.

What is the Format of the NPWP?

As with other identity cards, this NPWP also consists of 15 digits. The first 9 digits is the taxpayer code which indicates whether he is an individual taxpayer or a treasury body/collector. Meanwhile, the next 6 digits are the tax administration code.

Example: 08.506.787.0-541.000, it can be described as follows:

08 : Taxpayer identity indicating as an individual

506.787 : serial number or registration number

0 : check digit (functions as a security device to prevent falsification and NPWP errors)

541 : KPP code (depending on where the taxpayer is registered)

000 : code of center/husband or branch/wife

Now that’s the format of the number digits on the NPWP which of course everyone has different number digits. It’s the same with the digits on the KTP.

What are the Requirements for Removing NPWP?

  4. Taxpayers in the form of permanent business entities stop their business in Indonesia, and want to move to another country.
  5. There is an inheritance that cannot be divided in its position as a Tax Subject.
  6. The Director General of Taxes considers it necessary to write it off, because the Taxpayer does not meet the subjective and/or objective requirements, in accordance with the provisions of the tax laws and regulations.

Are There Any Sanctions for Not Registering a NPWP?

Of course there are sanctions for those who have met the requirements both subjectively and/or objectively, but have not registered themselves to obtain an NPWP. This rule has been referred to in Law Article 39 paragraph 1 number 28 in 2008 . So, here’s a breakdown of the rules:

Meanwhile, in the Constitution Number 36 of 2008 concerning Income Tax in Article 21 paragraph 5a, Article 22 paragraph 3, and Article 23 paragraph 1a, it also regulates the existence of this NPWP. Well, here is the description.

  1. Article 21 paragraph 5a  states that withholding Income Tax Article 21 must apply a higher rate of 20% for taxpayers who do not have a taxpayer identification number (NPWP) compared to the rate set for taxpayers who can show a taxpayer identification number.

There are a few special additions to Article 21 (work-related benefits), the employer (private sector, treasurer) and workers (employees, civil servants) will both be disadvantaged if there are employees who do not have an NPWP. Because the mechanism for paying taxes under Article 21 for the private sector is usually borne by the employer, while for civil servants, specifically for fines under Article 21 due to not having an NPWP, the tax will be borne by the civil servants themselves.

  1. Article 22 paragraph 3 states that Article 22 PPh collectors must apply a 100% higher rate to taxpayers who do not have an NPWP compared to the rates applied to taxpayers who can show an NPWP.
  2. Article 23 paragraph 1a states that Article 23 withholding income tax must apply a 100% higher rate to taxpayers who do not have an NPWP compared to the rate applied to taxpayers who can show an NPWP.
