The Online Single Submission: Indonesia's Latest Effort To Improve The Ease Of Doing Business

On 21 June 2018, the Government of the Republic of Indonesia issued Government Regulation No. 24 of 2018 on Electronic Integrated Business Licensing Services ("GR No. 24/2018"). GR No. 24/2018 seeks to improve the ease of doing business and increase investment in Indonesia. It also reflects the Government's direction to shift from its pre-commencing supervision system to post-commencing supervision. This is done by reducing the number of required business licenses and permits before one can commence business operation in Indonesia, as well as simplifying their application processes.
