Remember, P2P Lending Organizers Must Create Income Tax Deposits
JAKARTA, DDTCNews - Peer-to-peer (P2P) lending service providers based on information technology must issue income tax withholding evidence (bupot PPh). This topic is one of the discussions in the national media today, Friday (May 13, 2022).
According to Article 3 paragraph (4) of PMK PMK 69/2022, P2P lending providers are designated to withhold PPh on the interest income received by lenders from borrowers.
"P2P lending service providers... must issue income tax withholding evidence and provide such evidence to lenders," reads part of Article 4 paragraph (1) letter a PMK 69/2022.
P2P lending providers can issue one bupot PPh for all interest payment transactions received by one lender in one tax period.
The referred P2P lending providers are those who have obtained permission and/or are registered with the Financial Services Authority (OJK). Withholding PPh is applicable to Article 23 PPh and Article 26 PPh.
For Article 23 PPh, the withholding rate is 15% of the gross amount of interest if the lender is a domestic taxpayer and a Non-Taxable Subject (BUT). If the lender is a foreign taxpayer other than BUT, the withholding rate for Article 26 PPh is 20% of the gross amount of interest or as stipulated in the P3B.
Furthermore, for interest payments to lenders that have been subject to withholding tax by the P2P lending providers, there is no further withholding tax by the borrowers.
In addition to the obligation to issue bupot PPh by P2P lending providers, there are also discussions related to the bundling of tax invoices for deliveries to end consumers by Retail Taxable Enterprises (PKP pedagang eceran). There are also discussions related to non-taxable turnover for individual taxpayers of Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (UMKM).
This is the complete news review.

Apart from issuing bupot, P2P lending providers are also required to deposit Article 23 PPh and Article 26 PPh that have been withheld to the state treasury.
