Permits and documents required to incorporate and operate legally in Indonesia. The corresponding government agencies, we need to receive approval will vary according to the type of business you are trying to shape.

In general, any company established in Indonesia which is wholly or partly by a foreign investor will require the authorization of the Foreign Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM). A locally owned entity entirely on the other hand can be formed relatively easily, with an approved business name and a deed of incorporation authorized by a notary. In both cases, there is a unique process that must be followed to secure approval.

Depending on the industry, newly established businesses may need to secure additional documents and permits from relevant government agencies to operate. In general all companies must comply with the regulations of the Ministry of Labor, Human Resources, and Justice of the Indonesian government.
