Business Licenses

Having the right licenses in place is unavoidable wherever you do business.

Business Licenses

Having the right licenses in place is unavoidable wherever you do business. And Indonesia is no different.

 

We’re here to help guide you through the options you have, depending on what kind of business you’re in, as well as what kind of products you need to register, import or export.

 

Online Single Submission (OSS)

The Indonesian Government has been trying to streamline the licensing process in recent years to make it quicker and easier across the board and they have introduced something called the Online Single Submission (OSS) system to facilitate this.

 

It’s important to know that every business in Indonesia has to register online through OSS.

 

If all of the required documentation is in place when you make the submission, you’ll get a business identity number, called a Nomor Induk Berusaha (NIB) 24-hours after a successful registration. And if your business doesn’t need any other licenses, you’ll get a registered Business License at the same time. We can help you with the entire process from OSS registration to determining the most appropriate licenses for the business you’re in.


Examples of licenses for different businesses

  1. General Trading (goods and services) needs a Business License
  2. Manufacturing (not including oil and gas and geothermal energy) needs an Industrial Business License
  3. Construction needs a Construction Business License
  4. Importing good to Indonesia needs a General Import License or a Producer Import License
  5. Selling Medical Devices needs a Medical Distribution License and a Medical Devices Registration.

Mergers & Acquisitions

We're here to help you realize your business potential by identifying opportunities...

Mergers & Acquisition

We’re here to help you realize your business potential in the most efficient and professional ways possible.

 

When it comes to Mergers & Acquisitions that could mean identifying opportunities, conducting valuations, negotiations, audits and due diligence.

 

Let’s look at the simplest way to describe the difference between a merger and an acquisition.

 

A merger is when two or more companies agree to join and become a single entity. This often helps with productivity and efficiency, particularly with administrative aspects.

 

An acquisition, on the other hand, is quite literally when one company buys another and this usually happens when a financially stronger company takes over the majority of shares of a smaller company.

 

Merger & Acquisition Process

Mergers and Acquisitions in Indonesia usually take around 30-days to complete, but be warned they can take longer.

There are 7-key stages to be aware of. In very simple terms these are:

Both companies let everyone know what they plan to do by making an announcement in local newspapers and by informing employees at least 30-days before a general shareholder meeting.
The shareholder meeting must have a minimum of 75-percent of shareholders present.
Any creditors have to approve the proposed merger or acquisition.
A fair market value of shares has to be agreed upon.
Any third parties must then give their approval.
The government agencies of BKPM, OJK and Ministry of Law and Human Rights) have to approve the merging or acquisition.
Appropriate industry regulators have to give their approval.
