Mostly discussion and common question occurred once foreign investor would like to enter in Indonesia is to choose an appropriate company model is an essential first step in the process of establishing or expanding your business in Indonesia, how to execute land in Indonesia, working permit, immigration services and for sure tax would be the critical concern.

AP Con through its services trying to assist investor or client by giving some information, business advices to answer the common question above.

AP Con confirm that generally investments in Indonesia can be categorized as either domestic (Penanaman Modal DalamNegeri or PMDN) or foreign direct investments (Penanaman Modal Asing or PMA).Foreign direct investment companies in Indonesia, established under full foreign ownership or under joint venture structure, should be incorporated as Indonesian Limited Liability Companies (Perseroan Terbatas (PT) and domiciled in Indonesia.

AP Con answer on what the Foreign Direct Investment is

According to Indonesian legislation, foreign capital investment in Indonesia may only be conducted in form of a limited liability company, that is established in accordance with the Indonesian legislation and that has its legal domicile within the Indonesian territory.

The foreign capital investment limited liability company (Perseroan Terbatas – Penanaman Modal Asing – “PT. PMA”) is the most commonly used vehicle for direct foreign investment. An application to the Investment Coordination Board (“BKPM”) is necessary in order to obtain permission for a foreign capital investment. A letter of approval (Investment license) will be issued by the Head of the Investment Coordinating Board to the applicant after all of the requirements prescribed by law have been completed and fulfilled.

To the check the possibility of line business that would be the business propose of investor or client then “The Negative List” would be the answer. There are a number of Presidential Regulations – commonly referred to as the “Negative List” – that define those areas that are closed for foreign investment and those areas which are open to foreign investment subject to certain conditions.

AP Con advise on how to execute land in Indonesia
The basic Indonesian Land Law is Law Number 5 of 1960 (UU 5/1960), also referred to as UUPA (UndangundangPokokAgraria, or the Basic Agrarian Law Act). Generally, Land titles can be classified under two categories: Primary Land Titles and Secondary Land Titles.
All primary land titles are certified and registered with the National Land Agency (BPN Office).

Basically foreigner cannot own land in Indonesia, its totally restricted according law number 5/1960, however since 1967 Indonesian government already governed about investment law whereas foreigner through investment mechanism they could have land in Indonesia legally.
