Step 6: Adhering to Annual Reporting & Compliance

After you’ve incorporated your company, you are bounded by the governmental regulations. These include corporate secretary activities, corporate tax filing, auditing, and more. Leave all compliance work to us and never miss a deadline – penalties are involved if you miss!

Company Registration Process in Indonesia

In the past, the process of setting up a company in Indonesia was time-consuming, often taking up to two months. However, recent government efforts have streamlined the process, resulting in a reduced timeline of approximately one to 1.5 months for company incorporation. This has made it easier and faster for businesses to establish their presence in Indonesia.

One significant development is the implementation of the Online Single Submission (OSS) system, which enables businesses to obtain a Business Identification Number (NIB) promptly. With the NIB in hand, businesses can commence operations without delay.

Despite these improvements, it is essential for foreign investors to familiarize themselves with the specific procedures involved in company registration in Indonesia. The following table provides an overview of the necessary steps for each available business entity:

Entity Type Steps Involved
Local PT (Perseroan Terbatas) 1. Reserve a company name through the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.
2. Prepare and sign the company’s articles of association.
3. Obtain the Deed of Establishment from the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.
4. Acquire a tax identification number (NPWP).
5. Apply for other necessary licenses and permits.
