Earlier this year, the Indonesian Ministry of Finance announced that it was cancelling its plans to go ahead with levying new tax regulations on companies involved in Indonesia’s e-commerce sector. The regulation that was due to come into effect on 1st April 2019 was regarded as potentially stifling Indonesia’s burgeoning e-commerce industry, specifically for MSMEs, and thus its revoking has been widely welcomed. However, the Jokowi government is keen to increase tax revenues in the country and e-commerce will continue to be on the radar as the sector grows and becomes more robust. The Ministry of Finance also announced that more preparation was needed before the regulations are implemented, so online shop owners need to be prepared for the futures should this regulation come into effect.
Indonesia’s e-commerce market offers huge potential with some 31.65 million e-commerce users to date and an additional 22.24 million users expected to be shopping online by 2022. However, that does not mean that you should limit your online shop and e-commerce business to Indonesia alone; there is a big wide world out there full of customers waiting for your products.
Right now is a better time than ever to have an online e-commerce business in Indonesia. The volume of e-commerce sales in the country is outstripping that of neighbouring countries with Indonesia’s e-commerce Gross Merchandise Value reaching $12.2 billion USD in 2018 compared with $3 billion in Thailand and $2 billion in Malaysia (Temasek 2018 e-Conomy SEA report).
