While Investree takes quantifying steps to help mitigate risks during the application and loan approvals' processes, the worst 'scenario' may occur and needs to be taken into consideration.

The biggest risk that may occur with peer-to-peer lending is if the Lender does not receive principal funds and monthly interest due to failure of repayment.

To minimize the risk of default, Investree-as previously described-will conduct assessment, selection, and approval under a modern credit-scoring system against each proposed loan.

Interest earned by the Lender on their funding in Invoice Financing products, where the Borrower is a Limited Company (PT), is subject to tax on interest under Income Tax Article 23.
Article 23 Income Tax (PPh) refers to the tax withheld on income derived from capital, delivery of services, or gifts and rewards, other than those withheld under Income Tax Article 21.
For Lenders who earn interest on their funding in Employee Loan products, no taxes are levied on Lenders.

In accordance with the provisions under Income Tax Article 23, any withholder of Article 23 Income Tax must be a domestic tax entity subject, where in this case the Borrower takes the form of a Limited Company. The Borrower is therefore construed as the party under obligation to pay or to deduct tax on interest.

No, the Article 23 Income Tax imposed on interest income is not final.
