Depending on the type of business you are trying to form, we can help advise you through the end-to-end process and help you obtain the necessary permits and documents in order to incorporate and operate legally in Indonesia. The relevant government agencies we need to receive approvals from will vary according to the type of business you are trying to form.
In general, any company incorporated in Indonesia which is held in whole or in part by foreign investors will require authorization from the the foreign investment coordinating board (BKPM). A wholly owned local entity on the other hand can be established relatively easily, with an approved business name and a notarized incorporation deed. In either case, there are unique processes to be followed in order to secure approvals.
Depending on the industry, a newly incorporated business may need to secure additional documents and permits from relevant government agencies in order to operate. In general all companies must comply with the regulations of the Manpower, Human Resources, and Justice Departments of the Indonesian government.
Once a company is incorporated in Indonesia depending on the industry the company operates in there may be several documents and permits the companies need to obtain in order to do business. Some of these permits are generic and apply to all businesses while others are specific to specific industries such as food, education, trade, etc. Given the growing level of government scrutiny over businesses in Indonesia it is important that companies comply with these regulations in order to avoid any interruption to their day to day operations.
