What is BMTP?
BMTP is an additional import duty that is charged based on the Most favoured Nation (MFN) or preferential import duty. Products taxed based on MFN via the BMTP will pay higher import duties when entering Indonesia. This will affect both B2B and B2C imports.
The objective of the BMTP is to protect and help local industries who have been suffering losses in recent years by giving them more time to plan and execute strategic steps to improve their businesses.
How Long Will it Last?
Currently, this BMTP for fashion has been planned for 3 years. If the government sees that local industries are able to compete without the BMTP Import Duty Safeguard’s support, the BMTP Import Duties will end, otherwise, the BMTP could be extended.
Which items are affected?
There are 134 different dutiable HS codes across chapters 61 and 62.
Chapter 61 refers to apparel or accessories that are knitted or crocheted while chapter 62 refers to apparel or accessories that are not knitted and not crocheted.
To find out if your product falls under any of the affected HS codes, please refer to the official announcement of the Ministry of Finance Indonesia and key in your HS Code into the Indonesia National Single Window to see the description of each HS Code.
Are there any exemptions?
Below are the HS Codes that are exempted from the BMTP. These exemptions only apply for Headwear and Neckwear from 122 origin countries, which you can also find in Ministry of Finance Indonesia’s official statement.
