What is a PMA?
In PT PMA, foreign investors can be registered as shareholders in the form of legal entities and individuals. Unlike Local Company (Local PT) where the company shareholdings must consist of 100% local citizens only, here in the PMA company foreigners can hold up to 100% ownership of the company in Indonesia.
However, if you aim to only represent an overseas company in Indonesia and you will not generate any income from local activities, you can set up a representative office instead.

There are more than 500 business sectors in Indonesia that are classified in the KBLI. The Indonesia Standard Industrial Classification (KBLI) is an official code classification which arrange the types of business fields of companies in Indonesia. Check our blog of the best business sectors in Bali. Therefore companies wishing to register their line of business on the Deed or in the NIB must enter the code according to the classification in the KBLI. KBLI was issued by BPS (Central Bureau of Statistics) with reference to the International Standard Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC), ASEAN Common Industrial Classification (ACIC), and East Asia Manufacturing Statistics (EAMS).
KBLI functions to uniform activities or business activities in Indonesia into a classification that can be classified. This standardization or uniformity becomes a reference for legality registration such as in the Company Deed or NIB (Business Identification Number). This single identification number, better known as Business Identification Number (Nomor Induk Berusaha/NIB) is a 13 digit registration number. It serves as a business owner’s identity to conduct its business activity.
Every business owner should obtain NIB first before getting started to process all business licenses needed to legally conduct their business. However, foreign investors are obliged to the Negative Investment List in Indonesia for certain business classifications where it lists down the maximum percentage a foreigner can hold ownership. The Negative Investment List is regularly updated by the Indonesia Investment Coordinating Board (BKPM).
