For the next few weeks Emerhub’s co-founder Marlissa Dessy will reply every Friday one commonly asked question by foreign entrepreneurs. She will focus on the aspects especially confusing for foreigners, this week talking about minimum paid up capital.

Foreign investors often confuse the minimum capital and minimum paid up capital of PT PMA and when you need to pay it.

Marlissa explains in the video that the paid up capital must be at least $300,000 in order to get approval from the BKPM (Foreign investment Coordinating Board). But this money does not have to be paid up before the company is incorporated and is able to open a bank account.

More detailed information about minimum capital and paid up capital can be found from our popular article here.
