Company Registration Jakarta Quick Highlights

What Types of Business Entity are There in Jakarta

There are 3 main types of limited liability company you can register in Jakarta, which are:

PT: Indonesia company for Indonesian citizens.

PMA: A foreign investment company for foreign owned entrepreneurs and foreign owned companies.

Representative Office: A alternative option for foreign companies looking at market entry solutions.

Understanding a PT in Jakarta

A PT is a legal entity primarily intended for use for Indonesia companies and citizens. It is the most common type of company ownership in Indonesia and is able to operate in any business field.

A local company is relatively easy to register and has a much lower investment and paid up capital investment compared to registering foreign companies.

An Indonesian company can employ foreign employees depending on the investment capital and can even put the foreigner as Director if necessary. Please note, that Foreign Directors in a PT cannot have any shares.

Corporate Bank Account in Jakarta Definition and Benefits

Once you have your company registration certificate, business identification number, deeds of association and additional registration documentation, you may open a local bank account. A local bank account is not possible without all registration documentation and even for foreign individuals, you must have a temporary stay permit (KITAS) to open a personal bank account in Indonesia.

To obtain a corporate bank account you will need to go in person, have all documentation observed, provide identification and the bank will most likely inspect your office address to ensure it is legitimate.

Once your company’s bank account is open, you can start invoicing and trading.

Own a Company as a Foreigner with PMA

If you are looking to make a foreign direct investment in Indonesia, you will need to register a PMA. A PMA requires a minimum of 2 foreign investors and requires an investment capital of 10 billion Rupiah.

A PMA offers the same benefits that a local company affords, also allowing foreigners to obtain visas such as Investor and working KITAS, as well as sponsor business visas for people meeting your organisation.

International companies looking to expand their business in Indonesia will also need to register their business under a PMA, unless the business activity falls under a category which is unavailable or partially available for foreign entities.

Conduct a business in Indonesia From a Virtual Office

For some business fields you may use a virtual office to register your business. For those not familiar with a virtual office, it is basically an address where you can register your business and receive mail. It is not a destination to work from, but rather a point to get your business off the ground. If you do setup an actual office, then you will need to edit the address on your company deeds, as well as update your bank and local tax office.

If you need a virtual office in Jakarta, you may use LetsMoveIndonesia’s solution, which only costs 5,500,000 IDR per year and is located in Kuningan Jakarta.
