Double Taxation Avoidance Agreement Indonesia

On 4 February 2020, at a meeting in Jakarta, Indonesia and Singapore signed the updated agreement on the abolition of double taxation and the prevention of tax evasion. Indonesia and Singapore signed their first DBA agreement in 1992 and negotiations began in mid-July 2015 to change the content.
