Career Opportunities in the Taxation System in Indonesia
FEB, UNPAK— The Accounting Student Association (HMA) of the Faculty of Economics, Pakuan University, Bogor, held the 2017 Accounting Scientific Week (PIA).
The activity which took place over the past week held various scientific competitions with the theme of Accounting which was participated by high school students in Bogor City and students from various universities in the Greater Jakarta area.
The highlight of the activity was held on Saturday, October 21, 2017 by holding a Scientific Seminar and Public Discussion which took place on the 3A floor of the Mashudi Building, Pakuan University, Bogor.
The activity which was attended by around 250 participants from students from various universities in Greater Jakarta and high school students throughout the city of Bogor presented 3 speakers with various topics of Accounting and Taxation. One of the speakers was Maestro Giovani, SE.,BKP, who is one of the leading tax consultants in Jakarta.
In his presentation, Maestro Giovani said that the tax system in Indonesia adheres to the Self Assessment System, where the calculation, preparation and reporting of taxes are carried out independently.
With this system automatically, individual and corporate or corporate taxpayers must do it themselves, thus employees who are able to do the work are needed.
Even if there are companies that do not have taxation personnel, because tax reporting is an obligation, inevitably the company submits tax management to parties who are able to carry out tax management in this case are tax consultants.
This opens the widest opportunity for human resources who have tax skills, this is also what students must take advantage of when they graduate and enter the world of work, both as employees in one company or as independent Tax consultants, on condition that they must have the capability and ability in taxation and most importantly having integrity and honesty, because managing taxes means managing company money and state money.
In closing, Maestro Giovani who is also a graduate of the Faculty of Economics, majoring in Accounting, advised the participants not to be afraid of taxation and to seize career opportunities in taxation as well as a form of love for the Republic of Indonesia by reporting taxation openly and transparently, because around 75% of state revenues to finance various infrastructures depend on tax revenues.
