The Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) simplifies the mechanism for withholding and making periodic tax returns (SPT Masa) for various types of income tax (PPh) in a single format.
This simplification is called the procedures for filling and submitting unification of periodic income tax return, which consists of Income Tax Article (ITA) 4, Article 15, ITA 22, ITA 23 and ITA 26.
In short, Unification of Periodic Income Tax Return is a notification letter used by withholders or collectors of income tax in reporting withholding or collection of several types of income tax in one tax period.
To understand the procedure for making Unification of Income Tax return, please refer to the new provisions related in the Director General of Taxes Regulation Number PER-23 / PJ / 2020, which was issued and came into force on 28 December 2020.
The provision states that the collection/withholding and submission of unification of periodic income tax return can use an electronic form via the e-Bupot (electronic withholding tax receipt) application, or use a hard copy.
To be able to use the e-Bupot application, the unification of income tax collector must have an electronic certificate.
While using paper forms, taxpayers can use the form format as available in the attachment to the rule.
The collection and submission of periodic income tax returns can only be done for taxpayers who meet the criteria, such as the maximum amount of tax withholding slip of 20 with a tax base value of not more than IDR 100 million per tax withholding slip.
If the collection or submission of unification of income tax returns is done electronically, there are several additional criteria that must be fulfilled.

Tax Amendment Mechanism
Taxpayers can make corrections to the unification of periodic income tax return if there are errors when filling out the tax withholding slip, and there is a return transaction or transaction cancellation.
Correction can be made by the taxpayer making additional tax withholding slip for tax objects that have not been reported. The tax withholding slip is then submitted in the amendment of the unification of periodic income tax return.
However, the amendment can only be done if the DGT has not conducted the preliminary evidence examination on the type of tax and the period being corrected.
