Limited liability company (PT PMA)

A limited liability company allows you to earn revenue in Indonesia. Your company will be able to apply for various business licenses to further diversify your business portfolio or investments.

Representative office for trading (KP3A)

This type of representative office can conduct trading activities for its parent company. KP3As can act as the parent company’s selling, manufacturing, and buying agent in Indonesia.

General Representative Office (KPPA)

This type of company represents the overseas company in Indonesia. KPPA cannot earn revenue in Indonesia but can hire employees and issue work permits.

Construction representative office (BUJKA)

This company registration type is employed for performing construction-related activities. A BUJKA is best suitable for larger foreign construction companies since they are only allowed to engage in large-scale construction projects while small-size projects are reserved for local construction companies.
