The tax is based on how much money you make from renting out the property. If you’re a tax resident, you’ll have to pay 10% of the rental income as tax. If you’re not a tax resident, you’ll have to pay 20%.

For instance, if you earn IDR 100,000,000 from renting out your property, you’ll have to pay IDR 10,000,000 as rental property tax. This tax is paid annually by reporting your rental income and tax liability in your tax return and paying the tax to the tax office before the deadline.

Foreigners don’t have to register a foreign-owned limited liability company (PT PMA) to buy property in Indonesia, but it is a safer option. PT PMA can use a local nominee or company to own land and property, making it a secure way for foreigners to own property in Indonesia.

As a foreigner, you’re not allowed to directly own land in Indonesia. However, you can own a building on leased land from the government or a local owner. To do this, you need to get a Right to Build and Own (Hak Guna Bangunan or HGB), which permits you to construct and own a building on a piece of land, but not the land itself.
