The Impact of Indonesia’s Omnibus Law on Halal and Tax
Dec 17, 2020 / 10:00 - 11:30

Dear AmCham Members and Friends,

As we know, Indonesia’s Omnibus Law on Jobs Creation (Law No. 11 Year 2020) is a substantial, significant legal reform. It amends multiple existing laws and impacts a broad range of sectors, from energy and mineral resources to real estate. Accordingly, AmCham would like to extend an invitation for you to join us on our third webinar series in collaboration with SSEK Indonesian Legal Consultants on Thursday, December 17.

The third webinar series will cover halal products and taxation, two areas affected by the new law that will influence foreign and domestic companies and investors in Indonesia. This webinar aims to focus on the changes to the halal certification process and what to expect from a regulation requiring implementation that is to be issued. In addition, it will also discuss new tax rates and tax incentives under the Omnibus Law, and actions companies should consider in response to the changes. We believe the discussion on halal product requirements and how effective the halal certification will be is fundamental as they accelerate the business licensing process and require strong cooperation from various other stakeholders.

This discussion will be moderated by Gusti Kahari, AmCham Indonesia’s Government Relations Director.
