Information on employment with the Australian Embassy Indonesia


Taxation is a personal responsibility for all Locally Engaged Staff (LES) and individuals should confirm their taxation obligations before considering an offer of employment with the Embassy.

An employee will be required to establish their own liability to pay Indonesian or other income tax and any liability for taxation is the personal responsibility of the employee. The Embassy takes no role in the withholding or submission of income taxation payments to the relevant Indonesian authorities or any other taxation collecting authority. The Embassy must report annual income to Indonesian Tax and/or Social Security authorities, if required to do so by the proper authorities.

Please note that the embassy is required to report to the ATO the earnings for those staff considered to be Australian residents for taxation purposes.
