Abstract

This study aims to provide a brief and analytical reporting on IFRS 15 adoption in Indonesia into PSAK 72 related to Income Tax and Value Added Tax issues that may arise. We use literature studies to collect data and strengthen it with in-depth interviews of taxpayers, PSAK standard setter, tax consulting practicioner, and Directorate General of Taxes official. Our findings demonstrate the need for entities to consider taxation issues that may arise due to revenue recognition developments. Unconformity that may arise between accounting and tax requires the entity to explain these differences by documenting them early. Taxpayers need to underline the burden of compliance arising from the IFRS 15 adoption, which is the compliance costs in the form of mark-to-market and realization taxation. In implementing PSAK 72 to align with the realization principle in the Income Tax Law, the taxpayer compliance cost will increase by making detailed fiscal reconciliations. From the VAT perspective, the Tax Paying Entrepreneurs need to make contract adjustments with the counterparty to ensure that the time of supply is the basis for determining the VAT payable. This research presents the gap between accounting and taxation so that it can be a lesson for application in other countries.
