Amazon, Alibaba Miss Indonesia Deadline on Tax, Content Curbs

Companies including Amazon.com Inc and Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. missed a deadline to register in Indonesia, which gave them five working days to comply before their services would be blocked.

The companies haven’t submitted official business registrations, which would effectively mean endorsing rules that grant Indonesia sweeping powers to shut down content it deems undesirable and tax digital sales. Internet giants Alphabet Inc.’s Google and Meta Platforms Inc.’s Facebook have complied.
