    2018 Expat Retiree Tax Analysis

    I understand Davida's view point differently. What he is supposed to pay if he would be taxed to government he is simply spending on employing someone. 4 people x 2 jt. (just to ease calculations) 8 jt. in salaries vs 8 jt. paid monthly to government. Besides once he will have to pay NPWP it is...

    2018 Expat Retiree Tax Analysis

    Unlinked NPWP number meaning not matching kantor pajak database would be marked as orphan tax number and would be pending action. What action that would be depends from agreement between Tax Officer and Bank's management/auditor/CFO. NPWP is NOT the same as tax code.... tax code as in UK is...

    (Older) 2nd hand cars

    I didn't know you have any experience. That is changing a lot. Yea.... I would say go for it, get a Merc. As for the insurance I have seen some simply don't want to insure cars above specific age. But it is still roadworthy and legal to drive here.

    (Older) 2nd hand cars

    I wanted to go via that route of having 2nd hand car but I quickly realized that some cars here are so much maybe not used as simply abused. If you still want to buy, better buy 2nd hand car from a family member, friend... ect. Low-mileage means nothing in Indonesia if you consider massive...

    Property Prices in Indonesia

    Hmm ... not sure if I would like to live next to a construction site. I had very bad experience in Bandung when they were building new apartment next to ours. From what I know if they will not finish on time they will pay penalty to "future" owners.

    KITAP

    Very good questions. I myself don't have any retirement visa so I can only say about normal spouse KITAP. This is just my opinion: 1. It is like a jungle out there to find a good and reliable agent from my experience. They usually try to "lock" their customer to come back to them once a new...

    UK nationals divorce visa status

    I am not 100% sure but if you have spouse visa (your spouse is a sponsor) and then get divorced = loosing sponsor = voiding visa. Or maybe simply get a new sponsor for new kitas? Not sure if you have to re-entry Indonesia. Bare with us. Someone more knowledgeable will perhaps answer your enquiry.

    YOU shall not pass.

    Glad to hear you enjoyed some vodka. Hahahah yes .... I am also heading to buffet. I always get hungry during drinking sessions. Perhaps it is good idea for you to stay on the road just in case you would disrespect the family with urgent feeling of being sick. No offense A.!
