TaxPrime is the registered brand of Persekutuan Soewito, Fajar, dan Rekan established in 2012. We have 180 advisors; some were formerly gaining expertise in the Indonesian tax authority that led varied-industries projects professionally. We have specialized team focusing on copper industry i.e., miners, smelter and refinery company to provide customs and tax assistance services.

Transfer Pricing Compliance and International Tax is our most rapidly-developed division. We are proud in our pursuit to prepare tailor-made TP Doc adjusting to each of our clients’ particular characteristics indubitably complying with international and domestic regulations since our establishment. The application of segregation and ex-ante approach also propelled us to the prospect of being the only tax consulting firm in Indonesia that consistently prepare TP Docs complying with the newly updated local regulation of Ministry of Finance Regulation 213/2016.

In Tax Litigation and Dispute division, instead of stopping as a “messenger”, at an early stage of engagement we map and identify the clients’ issues, formulate strategic solutions backed with comprehensive understanding on our clients’ cases, and prudently deliver the case to the authority.

Further, in Tax Compliance and Audit division, we differentiate ourselves by ensuring that the compliance level of our clients is defendable in tax assessments.
