Includes information on average tariff rates and types that U.S. firms should be aware of when exporting to the market.
Over the last decade, Indonesia has increased its applied tariff rates for a range of goods that compete with locally manufactured products, including electronic products, milling machines, chemicals, cosmetics, medicines, wine and spirits, iron wire and wire nails, and a range of agricultural products.
Most Indonesian tariffs on non-agricultural goods are bound at 35.5 percent, although tariff rates exceed 35.5 percent or remain unbound on automobiles, iron, steel, and some chemical products. In the agricultural sector, tariffs on more than 1,300 products have bindings at or above 35.5 percent. Under Minister of Finance (MOF) Regulation 112/2018, Indonesia levies an import duty of 7.5 percent on certain goods (known as “consignment goods”) imported by businesses regardless of the tariff rate in Indonesia’s WTO and free trade agreement schedules, if the Free On Board customs value of the good is more than USD 75 but less than USD 1,500. Indonesia maintains tariff rates as a high as 10 percent on certain information and communication technologies, including certain types of telecommunications equipment as well as servers.
