How to start an Indonesian export company

There are a few provisions to be met when creating an export company – the first step is establishing a legal entity. There are several types of legal entities that you can set up, including a CV, firm, PT, as well as a cooperative.

  • Trading Business License (SIUP) from the Ministry of Trade.
  • Industrial License from the Ministry of Industry.
  • Domestic Investment Business License (PMDN) or Foreign Investment (PMA) issued by the Ministry of Investment (BKPM).
