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.
