INDONESIA: Import Tariffs Mooted for All Consumer Products Bought Through E-commerce Channels
Import taxes are proposed to be imposed upon entry into Indonesia of all shipments of consumer products ordered through e-commerce platforms, with no date as yet announced for the implementation. At present, e-commerce products valued under US$100 are permitted duty-free entry into the country.
The latest moves come in the wake of an earlier proposal to tax all of the country’s e-commerce transactions. Although the measure was expected to be formally adopted by the end of October 2017, the Indonesian government is yet to enact the relevant legislation.
