3.4. Potential Loss of Tax Residence Status by Domestic Entities

There is no provision under the Income Tax Law confirming that an Indonesian legal entity may lose its tax resident status under certain circumstances. Technically, an entity formed under Indonesian law will remain an Indonesian resident for corporate income tax purposes unless another jurisdiction claims the residency as well. If a treaty is applicable, the residence conflict should be solved by the treaty, normally under the effective management test.
