It is possible to change an Indonesian company’s name. However, additional rules might apply that do not apply to companies which have been newly established. For example, the Ministry of Law and Human Rights requires all new foreign companies to have at least three words in their company name. Thus, foreign companies which attempt to use a one-word or two-word company name are not allowed to do so. After the name of the company has been changed, the company owner will also need a new tax card to be used by the company. This means the changes need to be approved by a local tax office, the Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM), and the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. A notary public will also add an amendment to the Articles of Association of the company to formalize the name change.
