Coming in late here, but this looks like reports I import from our
accounting system up to 4 times an hour.

I think Andreas regexp is good and could be used with a little tweek.
Part of your problem may be to do with locale.
The report uses point as decimal and comma as thousands separator. I
think you are saying your locale uses comma as decimal and point as
thousands separator.
Do you have to import these often.

Yes, and there are negative percents in braces with lots of spaces and
the % within the braces.
Calc has no problem with (20)% which correctly imports as -0.2. Calc it
does not interprete (20%).
I could not find a locale for currencies with leading "Rp". Indonesian
should work because it has such currency formats but Indonesian import
locale gives text.

And yes, a trivial sed script can fix this. But I'm not familiar with
sed and most users use Windows.
Since LO comes with Python, Python could provide a cross-platform solution.
