Every company owner in Indonesia must comply with certain legal requirements for the operation of a business there. However, some company owners inadvertently overlook some of the requirements which are needed before the business may be allowed to be run in a legal manner.

Legal Requirements Overlooked by Indonesian Company Owners

Requirements Related to Appointments of Directors, Shareholders, and Commissioners

Anyone who starts a limited liability company in Indonesia, regardless of whether it is owned by locals (PT) or by foreigners (PT PMA), must adhere to the laws which govern the appointment of directors, shareholders, and commissioners in such a company. Every PT and PT PMA which has been established in Indonesia is required to have a minimum of one director, two shareholders, and one commissioner. In the case of a PT, all of the shareholders of the company must be locals; such is not required of a PT PMA. Should a PT or a PT PMA have multiple directors or multiple commissioners, one of the directors or commissioners is required to serve as the president director or the president commissioner. As these are legal requirements, every company in Indonesia must comply with the information which has been stated. The consequence of not adhering to these important  requirements  is  that  the  company’s  incorporation  will  not  be  officially  completed;  only  companies  with  the  appropriate  number  of  directors,  shareholders,  and  commissioners  may  be  incorporated  in  Indonesia.
