The international business landscape is more complex than ever, according to the latest annual
Global Business Complexity Index (GBCI) by professional services firm TMF Group – with
COVID-19 adding a significant economic and social layer.

Indonesia is ranked as the most complex place to do business in this year’s report, which once
again analyses key areas of business administration and compliance across 77 jurisdictions, from
the time it takes to incorporate, to changes in tax legislation, to policies around wages and
benefits, through to the challenges of opening a bank account. In all over 250 different criteria are
factored into this year’s rankings.

TMF Group CEO Mark Weil said: “Understanding international business complexity is essential,
even more so during these challenging times. A complex country can constrain business success
or can discourage investment entirely; on the other hand, simplicity of operation can encourage
investment in a jurisdiction that would not otherwise be competitive.
