Item valued over US$75 is charged 7.5% of import duty. This duty is applied on fixed rates on all incoming goods. Beside import duty, the receiver is also charged for Valued Added Tax (VAT) of 10% and Income Tax of 10% for Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). For a non-holder, duty is 20%. Example as follows:
- Import value: Rp2.000.000,-
- Import duty : 7,5% x Rp2.000.000,- = Rp150.000,-
- VAT : 10% x (Rp2.000.000,- + Rp150.000,-) = Rp215.000,-
- Income Tax: 10% (Rp2.000.000,- + Rp150.000,-) = Rp215.000,- (with TIN)
: 20% (Rp2.000.000,- + Rp150.000,-) = Rp430.000,- (without TIN)
- Total payable import duty
With TIN : Rp150.000,- + Rp215.000,- + Rp215.000,- = Rp580.000,-
Without TIN : Rp150.000,- + Rp215.000,- + Rp430.000,- = Rp795.000,-
What if you are sending 3 parcels in one day with various package values (e.g., package A value is US$20, package B is US$50, and package C is US$30)? This is the illustration: packages A and B are import duty free, since their total values are still under US$75. However, package C will be subject to various import duty.
