I. Background

About TSR

The Indonesian government places a high priority on improving the quality and quantity of TVET. This initiative is mainly driven by the fact that despite the positive economic growth rates, the development of the labor market falls short of the Indonesian government’s expectation. Although the unemployment rate fell from 6.1% to 4.1% in 2012-2016 and that of youth unemployment from 19.5% to 15.4%, the 15-24 age group still represents the majority of the non-employed labor force at 58%. Furthermore, the open unemployment rate of graduates of TVET secondary schools (SMKs) in August 2017 is still high (23%, 1,621,402; source: BPS, 15 Dec 2017). The Indonesian government is, therefore, aiming for an extensive modernization and expansion of the TVET system.
The project TVET System Reform (TSR) is a joint effort between the Coordinating Ministry of Economic Affairs (CMEA) and the German Development Cooperation through GIZ, aiming at supporting the implementation of key elements of the Indonesian Government’s reform agenda on technical and vocational education and training (TVET). The Indonesian-German TSR project works at the national level. The project consists of three fields of activity:
3. TVET coordination and TVET policy to better align and regulate roles and initiatives of private and public actors within TVET system
4. Cooperation with the private sector to enhance their engagement in TVET development
5. Advice and create suitable conditions for upscaling of successful models and instrument for the improvement of labour market relevance of TVET

Super Deduction Tax initiative
Improving the quality of human resources continues to be a priority of the Government of Indonesia, as competent human resources will ultimately increase Indonesia’s economic productivity. The development of skilled human resources is one of the strategies to embrace opportunities for demographic bonuses that will be experienced by Indonesia in 2020-2030. The growing number of productive work forces can boost national economic performance.
Especially in relation to vocational education, the active involvement of the private sector as the main beneficiary of graduates of vocational education institutions in the curriculum adjustment, teaching and learning and learning outcome evaluation processes is very important to maintain the relevance of TVET with the needs of the labor market.
Encouraging the private sector to play a more active role is quite challenging. Various attempts have been done, but the private sector remains reluctant to substantially invest in vocational education. One of the latest methods planned to be carried out immediately is tax incentives for companies that work with vocational education institutions to develop vocational education.
Currently the Indonesian government is finalizing a policy regarding Super Deductible Tax or a reduction of tax above 100 percent. These fiscal incentives will be given to industries involved in vocational education programs as well as conducting research and development activities (R & D) to generate innovation. The Ministry of Industry has proposed a tax reduction scheme for industries that conduct vocational training and education by 200 percent, and for industries that carry out R & D or innovation activities by 300 percent. Thus, companies could substantially enjoy lower taxes if they are investing in applying and developing TVET in Indonesia.
The government has currently planned two areas of activities, which would be eligible for a Super Deduction Tax, namely R & D and vocational education activities. The Indonesian government wants to develop a guideline of the related tax filing processes, which would a prerequisite for a successful rolling out of the approach.
