Company registration Indonesia minimum capital requirement

Minimum investment plan and paid up capital

All companies with any foreign shareholders are considered as foreign direct investment LLC-s (PT PMA in Indonesian). The corporate law states that only large enterprises can be foreign-owned.

Investment plan

For most business classifications, the Investment Coordinating Board expects an investment plan of at least 10 billion IDR (~700,000 USD). This is higher for some capital-intensive industries and also when applying for more than one classification.

Paid-up capital

Investment plan states the amount of money that is going to be invested in Indonesia. The minimum paid up capital requirement is 2.5 billion IDR (~175,000 USD).

In reality, companies prove it only with a notary capital statement letter and no actual money transfer is going to be validated.

Allowed foreign ownership and corporate structure

Indonesian corporate law does not state a common allowed foreign ownership for all businesses. Instead the foreign ownership is regulated by the Negative Investment List and limitations are based on business classification

Business classification

Investment application must clearly state the planned business activities and this is the basis for the business classification. The allowed ownership varies from completely open to completely closed to foreign investment. Indosight consultant will advise you on the exact regulations concerning your activities.

At least two shareholders

Regardless of the industry, each company must have at least two shareholders. Those can be both individuals and corporate shareholders.

At least one commissioner and director
