Hi people, i am looking for up to date information about land taxes when selling properties in Indonesia, Bali in this case. Particularly in the case of a leasehold for a bule. I am trying to sell my house.
Can anyone help or give information? Thanks.

If you want to sell the lease to someone else, then it's subject to 10% income tax from the gross amount. Even though most property agent classify lease hold as a sale, it is in fact a rental, so rental tax apply.

This tax is categorized as PPh final, meaning that it is due immediately (the 15th of the month), and is not subject to progressive tax. Ie. you pay 10% regardless of your other income.

Ok, well it sounds familiar, i went through a lot of the procedure to first downgrade and then change title to my name, with my Notoris which was all fine and i accepted it, but now some "other" expenses have cropped up i have no idea where they came from apart from something vague he said about 5% and 2 1/2% of 5 billion?? from the government for land tax etc?? eh??

Does anyone know anything about this? Even the Notoris couldn't explain it (i didn't continue obviously)

Are they trying to screw me? lets be honest folks this would not be unusual in Bali.
Any information or advice would be appreciated in this situation

Also does anyone know a good, honest, reputable, expat specialist preferrably Notoris that i can go too for a second opinion? Thanks.

easy version, transfer of sale tax is (PPh) 2,5% payed by seller, Buyer Tax (BPHTB) 5% payed by buyer. for the notary opinion i think you should go to local PPAT (Pejabat Pembuat Akta Tanah) where the property is located ex. Badung, Gianyar, Denpasar Etc and it is free.

Besides the 2,5% income tax and 5% on land and building rights that @ericjancoen mentioned, and obviously a 1% notary fee or so, I don’t see the requirement for these additional costs either?!

He must be able to explain where this is coming from...
