Business Documents

If you’ve successfully established a business in Indonesia you should have:

  1. An Article of Association (AKTA)
  2. A Deed of Establishment (SK)
  3. A Company Tax ID (NPWP)
  4. A Domicile Letter
  5. A Business License Number (NIB)

In addition you’ll also need specific documents related to your specific area of business.

These fall under something called KBLI (Klasifikasi Baku Lapangan Usaha), which is a standard classification structure for economic activities, business fields and activities that produce products as well as output in the form of goods and services.

 

Your business documents should include:

  1. Your company identity (the name and address)
  2. Your stakeholder structure (who are the Directors, Commissioner and Shareholders)
  3. What your business activities are going to be
  4. And your company’s capital

Situations can change however, and businesses often find themselves adapting to those changes. Maybe you want to bid for a tender or hire more expatriates or abide by the occasional changes the government requires with its systems.

When this happens you’re going to have to update some of your documentation as well.

These are the most common changes that we see.

 

Change of identity

If you change your company name or address, you’re going to have to update all of your documents. If you move from Jakarta to Bali for example, you’ll need to take into account that you report to a different tax office. Making a change in tax offices in different cities can take up to 2-months. If you stay in the same city it’s usually just a month.

 

Change of Directors, Commissioners and Shareholders

Any changes to shareholders and commissioners means you’ll have to update your Articles of Association (AKTA) and your Deed of Establishment (SK). This takes about three weeks.

If you want to change the name of the company’s Directors, all documents must be revised, and this takes about four weeks.

 

Changing your business activities

Again, changing or adding to, your business activities is possible to do, but you’ll have to update all of your documentation. You might also have to get different licenses depending on what changes you’ve made to the business. Updating the documents for a change in business activities takes about four weeks.

 

Changing company capital

Sometimes businesses have to adjust their company’s capital. In these cases you’ll have to update your Articles of Association (AKTA), your Deed of Establishment (SK) and your Business License Number (NIB). Making these capital adjustments takes about four weeks.

Feel free to get in touch if you’d like more information or if you’d like to discuss how we can assist you keep your company documentation updated.
