Failing to Disclose Information Regarding Beneficiary Ownership, Corporations Shall Face Obstruction by the Directorate General of General Legal Administration, Ministry of Law and Human Rights in Indonesia

The disclosure of beneficial ownership data by corporations is crucial in preventing corruption in licensing and procurement of goods/services, as well as in aiding case management. However, as of December 2022, only 38.47% of beneficial ownership data has been declared in Indonesia. To become a member of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), the Indonesian government, through the Directorate General of General Legal Administration (Ditjen AHU) of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights (“MOLHR”), is intensively overhauling the beneficial ownership data.

Recently, the Directorate General of General Legal Administration of the MOLHR announced on its official website that corporations that have not reported their beneficial ownership data will be temporarily blocked from accessing the Legal Entity Administration System. To regain access, corporations are required to complete the beneficial ownership submission via the https://bo.ahu.go.id page and submit an application to unblock such access by emailing badanhukum.perdata@ahu.go.id along with evidence of reporting.

This is in line with Presidential Regulation No. 13 of 2018, which stipulates the submission of reports on beneficial ownership by corporations as a fundamental regulation in Indonesia. The public can also monitor the progress of beneficial ownership declarations and data transparency and see a list of corporations that still need to report their beneficial ownership data on the https://bo.ahu.go.id page.
