Profile

The Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia, between the Indian and Pacific oceans. It is the world’s largest , with more than seventeen thousand islands and at 1.904.569 square kilometres (735.358 square miles), the 14th largest by land area and the 7th largest in combined sea and land area. With over 261 million people, it is the world’s 4th most populous country as well as the most populous Muslim-majority country. Java, the world’s most populous island, contains more than half of the country’s population.

The sovereign state is a presidential, constitutional republic with an elected parliament. It has 34 provinces, of which five have special status. Jakarta, the country’s capital, is the second most populous urban area in the world. The country shares land borders with Papua New Guinea, East Timor, and the eastern part of Malaysia. Other neighbouring countries include Singapore, Vietnam, Philippines, Australia, Palau, and India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Despite its large population and densely populated regions, Indonesia has vast areas of wilderness that support a high level of biodiversity. The country has abundant natural resources like   natural gas, tin, . Agriculture mainly produces rice, palm oil, tea, coffee, cacao, medicinal plants, . Indonesia’s major trading partners are China, United States, Japan, Singapore, and India.

History of the Indonesian archipelago has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to its natural resources. It has been an important region for trade since at least the 7th century when and then later Majapahit traded with entities from mainland China and the Indian subcontinent. Local rulers gradually absorbed foreign cultural, religious and political models from the early centuries and   kingdoms flourished. Muslim traders and Sufi scholars brought Islam, while European powers brought  one another to monopolise trade in the Spice Islands of Maluku during the Age of Discovery. Although sometimes interrupted by the Portuguese, French and British, the Dutch were the foremost European power for much of its 350-year presence in the archipelago. In early 20th century, the concept of “Indonesia” as a nation state emerged, and independence movements began to take shape. During the decolonisation of Asia after World War II, Indonesia achieved independence in 1949 following an armed and diplomatic conflict with the Netherlands.

Indonesia consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups, with the largest and politically dominant ethnic group being the Javanese. A shared identity has developed, defined by a national language, ethnic diversity, religious pluralism within a Muslim-majority population, and a history of colonialism and rebellion against it. Indonesia’s national motto, “Bhinneka Tunggal Ika” (“Unity in Diversity” literally, “many, yet one”), articulates the diversity that shapes the country. Indonesia’s economy is the world’s  by nominal GDP and the 7th largest by GDP at PPP. Indonesia is a member of several multilateral organizations, including the UN, WTO, . It is also a founding member of Non-Aligned Movement, Association of Southeast Asian Nations, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, East Asia Summit, Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.


Economy of Indonesia
Indonesia has the largest economy in Southeast Asia and is one of the emerging market economies of the world. The country is also a member of G20 and classified as a newly industrialised country.] It is the 16th largest economy in the world by nominal GDP and the 7th largest in terms of GDP (PPP). Its GDP per capita, however, ranks below the world average. Indonesia still depends on the domestic market and government budget spending and its ownership of state-owned enterprises (the central government owns 141 enterprises). The administration of prices of a range of basic goods (including rice and electricity) also plays a significant role in Indonesia’s market economy. However, since the 1990s, the majority of the economy has been controlled by individual Indonesians and foreign companies.

In the aftermath of the 1997 Asian financial crisis, the government took custody of a significant portion of private sector assets through acquisition of nonperforming bank loans and corporate assets through the debt restructuring process and the companies in custody were sold for privatization several years later. Since 1999 the economy has recovered and growth has accelerated to over 4–6% in recent years.

In 2012, Indonesia replaced India as the second-fastest-growing G-20 economy, behind China. Since then, the annual growth rate slowed down and stagnates at the rate of 5%.

Since an inflation target was introduced in 2000, the GDP deflator and the CPI have grown at an average annual pace of 10¾% and 9%, respectively, similar to the pace recorded in the two decades prior to the 1997 crisis, but well below the pace in the 1960s and 1970s. Inflation has also generally trended lower through the 2000s, with some of the fluctuations in inflation reflecting government policy initiatives such as the changes in fiscal subsidies in 2005 and 2008, which caused large temporary spikes in CPI growth.

In late 2004, Indonesia faced a ‘mini-crisis’ due to international oil prices rises and imports. The currency exhange  rate reached Rp 12,000/USD1 before stabilising. Under President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY), the government was forced to cut its massive fuel subsidies, which were planned to cost $14 billion in October 2005. This led to a more than doubling in the price of consumer fuels, resulting in double-digit inflation. The situation had stabilised, but the economy continued to struggle with inflation at 17% in late 2005. Economic outlook became more positive as 2000s progressed. Growth accelerated to 5.1% in 2004 and reached 5.6% in 2005. Real per capita income has reached fiscal levels in 1996-1997. Growth was driven primarily by domestic consumption, which accounts for roughly three-fourths of Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP). The Jakarta Stock Exchange was the best performing market in Asia in 2004, up by 42%. Problems that continue to put a drag on growth include low foreign investment levels, bureaucratic red tape, and widespread corruption which causes Rp 51.4 trillion (US$5.6 billion) or approximately 1.4% of GDP to be lost on a yearly basis. However, there is a strong economic optimism.

As of February 2007, the unemployment rate was 9.75%. Despite a slowing global economy, Indonesia’s economic growth accelerated to a ten-year high of 6.3% in 2007. This growth rate was sufficient to reduce poverty from 17.8% to 16.6% based on the government’s poverty line and reversed the recent trend towards jobless growth, with unemployment falling to 8.46% in February 2008. Unlike many of its more export-dependent neighbours, Indonesia has managed to skirt the recession, helped by strong domestic demand (which makes up about two-thirds of the economy) and a government fiscal stimulus package of about 1.4% of GDP. After India and China, Indonesia was the third fastest growing economy in the G20. With the $512 billion economy expanded 4.4% in the first quarter from a year earlier and last month, the IMF revised its 2009 Indonesia forecast to 3–4% from 2.5%. Indonesia enjoyed stronger fundamentals with the authorities implemented wide-ranging economic and financial reforms, including a rapid reduction in public and external debt, strengthening of corporate and banking sector balance sheets and reducing bank vulnerabilities through higher capitalisation and better supervision.

In 2012, Indonesia’s real GDP growth reached 6%, then it steadily decreased below 5% until 2015. After SBY was succeeded by Joko Widodo, the government took measures to ease regulations for foreign direct investments to stimulate the economy. 

Indonesia managed to increaseits GDP growth slightly above 5% in 2016–2017. However, the government is currently still facing problems such as weakening the currency, decreasing exports and stagnating consumer spending. The current unemployment rate in the  first quarter 2019 is at 5,01%.
Institute of Indonesian Chartered Accountants (IAI), the largest and oldest accounting association in the country, is a member of the International Federation of Accountants and has 20,735 members as of March 2014. These are mostly State Registered Accountants certificate holders. The professional organisation of Indonesia’s statutory auditors is the Indonesian Institute of Public Accountants (IAPI).

Under Law 34 of 1954, the Ministry of Finance (MOF) is responsible for maintaining “state registry for accountants.” As of May 2013, the Ministry of Finance has issued around 55,000 State Registered Accountants certificates.

  2. maintain professional competence through continuing professional education and continuing professional development;

  2. has had relevant work experience in the field of accounting; and

A bureau under the Ministry of Finance called “the Finance Profession Supervisory Centre” (PPPK) has oversight of the practice of accounting firms and appraisers. PPPK is also a member of the International Forum of Independent Auditor Regulators (IFIAR).

The bureau issues Registered Accountants certificates as well as licences for practising public accountants and has a right to administer sanctions to CAs and CPAs who violate the regulations. PPPK’s main responsibilities are:

A special approval from the Bank Indonesia (central bank) is required to conduct the audit of banks. Similarly, for the audit of State Owned Enterprises and public listed companies, special approval is needed from the Supreme Audit Institution and Indonesian Capital Market & Financial Institution Supervisory Agency respectively.

A CPA must also obtain the required license to perform any kind of services (e.g. act as a liquidator or curator) if such license is required by statutory legislation regulating the service. Being a registered CPA does not permit the individual to act, for example, as approved tax agent for compliance with tax law purpose unless relevant license has been obtained (the Government issues separate license for individual in order for them to provide the tax compliance service).

It has to be noted that other legislations also mention and refer to acceptable financial accounting standards although there is no reference to the definitive standard-setting body. For example, the Companies Law (Law 40 of 27) states that “[The term] “financial accounting standards” refers to accounting standards set by an Indonesian professional accountant association recognized by the Government of Republic of Indonesia.”

DSAP promulgates professional technical and ethical standards for public accountant in rendering their services (auditing, review, examination, quality assurance etc.). For the accounting standards, the Capital Market Law is the only law that specifically provides the Indonesian Financial Accounting Standards (PSAK) set by the Indonesian Financial Accounting Standards Board (DSAK) under The IAI.
