Company Registration

Establishing a company is the first step to expanding your business operations into Indonesia. There are many options business owners can opt for, but the most common types are a Foreign-Owned Company (PT PMA) or Representative Office. Each has its benefits, and one may be better suited for you based on your business expansion objectives.

A successful business in Bali is organized from the start. Get help from our experts to make your company registration experience go as smoothly as possible.

Types of Legal Entities for Foreign Investors in Indonesia:

Local Company (PT)

If you are a foreign investor that wants full control of your business, then establishing a PT. Company is the best option you can opt for. PT. Company is the only legal entity in Indonesia that allows 100% foreign ownership.

 

A Local Company is suited for investors starting a business in sectors that remain partially or fully closed off to foreign investments, contact us for more detailed information. 

Foreign-Owned Company (PMA)

A foreign-owned company is the common company type or structure most foreign businesses and investors start in Indonesia. It allows you to have full ownership of your company, employ foreigners, and provide sponsorship for business visas, among many others.

General Representative Office (KPPA)

A Representative Office is also commonly known as a Branch Office. This is designed for foreign investors or businesses who are interested in assessing market potential without sinking in a hefty amount of paid-up capital. Or, does not plan to have any sales/revenue-related activities (e.g.: call center). The benefits of starting a Representative Office include zero investment plan, zero corporate income tax reporting, and being able to hire foreigners, among many others.

Representative Office for Business Trading (KP3A)

KP3A is a representative office that is established specifically for business trading. Both general and trading RO's are prohibited from conducting business activities that generate financial income.
