Before we get started, it is absolutely essential that you understand Indonesian law, its requirements and the impact it will have on your business operations. One thing we want to make sure you understand is that companies operating in Indonesia will be required by law to register their business with the Indonesian Corporation Commission or CCC. The Company Identification Number for a business in Indonesia must be filed with the Central Business Information Registry or CBIR. The name of the company and the abbreviated form of its name, together with all the contact information must be filed with the Companies Registry.
Once filed, the business will undergo inspections by the local authorities, including the Bankruptcy Department. This is because the Bankruptcy serves as a last resort to a number of reasons when a business fails. If foreign investors decide to incorporate in Indonesia, they must remember that they will need 100% foreign ownership of the shares in their companies in order to operate here. Foreign ownership means that foreign investors will have first right to vote and dividends for the ownership. Because of this, it is very important that you are completely aware of the laws and requirements related to company incorporation in Indonesia.
The statutory corporation rate varies from state to state. In Indonesia, there are seven categories of rates. Each of these rates has its own rate of taxation, corporate taxes and penalty charges. The rates also vary according to the type of company. A mortgage and loan institution will be required to pay a higher rate than an engineering firm. Each of these rates also varies according to the size and industry of the company.
Indonesian law also stipulates several other requirements, which foreign investors must comply with. Before incorporating in Indonesia, foreign investors must ensure that they comply with all the other requirements. Indonesia has issued amendments to the Corporations Act of 2021 which provide additional requirements for company registration. These amendments affect the amount of shares the company must issue and the manner in which it may distribute its dividend. Furthermore, amendments were made to increase the personal liability of company directors.
Company incorporation in Indonesia requires careful due diligence on behalf of the foreign individual or company wishing to incorporate in Indonesia. Foreign individuals wishing to incorporate in Indonesia should carry out their due diligence by ensuring that the parent company in Indonesia meets all the requirements and provides adequate protection and service to its shareholders. If an individual or company wishing to incorporate in Indonesia does not meet these requirements then they may find that their intended business will not prosper. Indonesia is a country that have a well developed financial system, but it is best to conduct due diligence and research the company before incorporating in Indonesia.
