SAAR is a special rule to minimize tax avoidanceThe sample in this study is multinational companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange in the 2015-2017 period. The method used is multiple linear regression with SPSS version 24. The results show that transfer pricing, thin capitalization, controlled foreign corporations (CFCs), utilization of tax heaven countries, and treaty shopping have no effect on tax avoidance. The absence of influence of the five independent variables on tax avoidance is due to the sample company data and also the proxy used.
