What types of companies can a foreigner register in Indonesia?

Foreigners can register several types of companies in Indonesia, including:

Most Popular

Limited liability company (PT PMA)

The most common choice for foreign investors launching businesses in Indonesia is a Limited Liability Company (PT PMA), ideal for 100% foreign ownership across various sectors like retail, IT, tech, and services.

Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)

For those aiming to initiate modest operations in Indonesia with lower paid-up capital, an SPV could be ideal. Emerhub’s expert consultants can consult you to establish an SPV with full ownership, a resident director, and a complimentary virtual address for smooth functioning.

Representative office (KP3A, KPPA)

If you have an existing foreign-registered company, a representative office in Indonesia could be suitable, with no minimum capital needs; it serves as a hub for market research, product promotion, and networking in the country.

Things to know when setting up a PT PMA in Indonesia

Planning your Investment
It’s important to have a well-thought-out investment plan that outlines how you intend to contribute to the Indonesian economy. Once your company is incorporated, you’ll need to have a paid-up capital of at least Rp. 2.5 billion.
Ownership and Personnel
Your company should have a minimum of two shareholders, which can include individuals and corporate entities. It’s also necessary to appoint an Indonesian resident director and have at least one commissioner who will oversee executive functions.
Next Steps After Incorporation
Once your company is officially incorporated, there might be specific business categories that require additional licenses. You’ll also need to have a registered commercial address, which Emerhub can assist you with.
Understanding Foreign Ownership Restrictions (KBLI)
Keep in mind the business classification limitations (KBLI) in Indonesia. These limitations are in place to control the level of foreign ownership in certain sectors, ensuring that key areas are safeguarded for domestic interests.
