Charles Guinot is the Founder and CEO of OnlinePajak, a web-based application that allows its users to prepare, pay, and file their taxes online. The robotics engineer, who received his masters degree from the Université de Technologie de Compiègne in France, never dreamt he would achieve what he did in 2016 with OnlinePajak reaching IDR 2.7 trillion (USD 202.4 million) in collected tax.
The story began five years ago with a very frustrated Guinot trying to optimize the internal tax processes of his company. The frustration gave birth to OnlinePajak, which was established in 2014.
OnlinePajak tries to solve two issues. One is the issue taxpayers are facing in terms of the administrative burden that accompanies tax compliance. Second is the issue the government faces in collecting the taxes.
Since it was founded, OnlinePajak has embraced more than 300,000 users, including Telkomsel, Tokopedia, Gojek, Old Comrades Group, PT Astra Otoparts Tbk, Huawei Tech Investment, Ranch Market, and many more.
OnlinePajak aims to help the entrepreneur community in Indonesia by being a distribution channel and help Jakarta-based companies as well as those in the remote areas of Indonesia.
