On 6 June 2016, the Ministry of Trade ("MOT") issued a draft e-commerce regulation for public comment. Industry associations and businesses provided similar comments to the e-commerce proposals, as the draft e-commerce regulation was very broad, and provided many of the same requirements as the draft OTT regulation (e.g., compliance with Indonesian laws and regulations, local presence, etc. even if more poorly drafted). There were not as many submissions made on the draft e-commerce regulation as the draft OTT regulation, perhaps given the fatigue in doing so for the draft OTT regulation. Unfortunately, there is no further update from the MOT on the draft e-commerce regulation; so only time will tell how this will unfold. However, given that the Government is focusing on the e-commerce roadmap (below), it may be that the e-commerce regulation (including tax regulation) will issue in 2017.
