There are two changes contained in the new regulation. First, confirmation regarding the corporate income tax rate as it applies to start in 2022, as stipulated in Law Number 7 of 2021, which is 22%, which in the previous regulation still stated 20%.
Second, regarding the administrative obligations of publicly listed companies that want to get an income tax deduction of 3% of the corporate income tax rate in Law Number 7 of 2022.
