Indonesia’s economy is growing at an incredible pace and many entrepreneurs and investors are looking to Indonesia to turn their business dreams into a reality.

There are a variety of different packages you can pick for setting up a business in Indonesia and a PT is by far the most popular.

Essentially a PT is a local company, designed for Indonesian citizens and therefore we would only recommend setting up this type of business if you are either Indonesian or have a trustworthy Indonesian partner. If you are a foreigner we would recommend setting up a PMA. To find out more about PMA Establishment, click here!

Additionally, there are some business entities that are only available to Indonesian Companies, therefore, even if you are a foreign company or individual, you may still need to set up a PT. If you need more information about which entities can be open to foreign owned companies, please feel free to ask the LetsMoveIndonesia team!
