Procedure to Incorporate an Indonesia Company
There are 6 steps for company incorporation in Indonesia, which will take approximately 1-2 months for complete registration.
Step 1: Apply for a company name
Check your desired company name is available – you can use our free company name checker to do so! If the name is available, you may proceed to apply and register for your desired company name with the Ministry of Law and Human Rights.
Here are some tips when choosing a company name. Do not select names that:
Are similar to existing companies
Are identical or similar to any name of a state, government, or an international agency without official approval
Does not conform to the purposes/ objectives/ activities of the company
Consist of a set of numbers, letters, or figures that do not form any words
Step 2: Apply for Deed of Establishment
The Deed of Establishment is to be applied online, together with the submission of the certificate of the bank account and official copy of the bank transfer advice. If the application is successful, you will receive a legalization on the establishment of the company and can announce the establishment within the following 14 days.
Step 3: Apply for the Certificate of Company Domicile
The next step is to apply for the Certificate of Company Domicile where all Indonesian limited liability companies are required to hold.
Step 4: Obtain a tax registration number (NPWP)
After getting your Certificate of Company Domicile, you will need to obtain a valid tax ID for financial purposes with the local tax authority. The documents required for this application include:
Identity card of the director
Statement letter to confirm place of business
Step 5: Get your business identification number (NIB)
The NIB is obtained from the Online Single Submission. This is a unique number that is assigned to your company as a form of identification (like an identification card!).
Step 6: Apply for other relevant documents and licenses
Different types of businesses require various business licenses. Depending on the nature of your business, you will need to apply for licenses before you are allowed to start your operations.
