Authored by 

A wholly-owned foreign company in Indonesia (known as a Penanaman Modal Asing, or PMA), is an ideal way for entrepreneurs to control an Indonesian company and make strategic management decisions. The following information will help you determine whether an Indonesia PMA is the optimum corporate structure to fulfill your business objectives:

Advantages of an Indonesian PMA

  1. An Indonesia PMA can be 100% foreign-owned and controlled, with key management decisions taken by the foreign investor, not an Indonesian shareholder;
  2. There are no restrictions on where an Indonesian PMA can operate in Indonesia;
  3. Healy Consultants can obtain a 60-year business license for your Indonesian PMA;
  4. Healy Consultants can open global corporate bank accounts to support your Indonesian PMA;
  5. Healy Consultants can obtain work permits for expatriate staff to support the Indonesian PMA.

Disadvantages of an Indonesian PMA

  1. An Indonesia PMA is required to sell a share of at least 5% of the company to an Indonesian citizen entity within 15 years of commercial start up. However, a PMA set up with an initial 95% foreign ownership is not obliged to sell any shares;
  2. An Indonesia PMA requires a minimum of two shareholders, one director and one commissioner whose details appear on a public register. Corporate shareholders are permitted;
  3. An Indonesia PMA shareholder structure may be restricted to a prescribed minority foreign ownership dependent upon the business sector or activity the company intends to engage in;
  4. An Indonesian PMA requires a minimum issued share capital of US$100,000 to obtain approval by the BKPM Indonesia Investment Coordination Board;
  5. An Indonesia PMA often lacks the local market knowledge and network of contacts compared to working directly with an Indonesian partner;
  6. The approval process for an Indonesian PMA is lengthy, and involves close liaison with the Indonesia Investment Coordination Board;
  7. Depending upon its intend area of activity, an Indonesian representative office may be required to obtain a multiplicity of operating licenses from different government departments, thus adding time and cost to the engagement.
