Establishment of Foreign Company in Indonesia

Under the Investment Law, all forms of foreign direct investment in Indonesia must be in the form of limited liability companies domiciled within the territory of the Republic of Indonesia. The investment must be by way of the foreign investor holding the company’s shares either entirely or jointly with domestic shareholders.

There are several aspects that need to be considered prior to foreign company establishment (“PMA Company”) in Indonesia, as follows: 1). Negative List of Investment from which investors know which business sectors are closed and open to foreign investments; 2). Stages and procedures for establishing PMA Company; 3). Capital value and shareholder requirements; 4). Licenses to obtain, which depend on the business sector; and 5). Procedures and requirements for utilizing foreign workers.
