Indonesian current government is so consistent in promoting Indonesia as a conducive and reliable country for foreign investment.
Many efforts have been done by the government, including issuing policies that will make foreign investment more feasible. The most recent ones are the Regulation Number 07/M-DAG/PER/2/2017 by the Ministry of Trade Republic Indonesia on Trading Business License (SIUP), which is the Third Amendment of the Trade Ministry Regulation Number 37/M-DAG/PER/9/2007 as well as Regulation Number 08/M-DAG/PER/2/2017 on Company Registration Certificate, which is the Second Amendment of the Regulation Number 37/M-DAG/PER/9/2007. Those regulations are valid from February 22nd, 2017 to all trading companies that have already owned SIUP and TDP (read: Company Registration in Indonesia).
The Overview of the New Regulations
In this newest regulation, trading companies are no needto renew their Trading Business License (SIUP), which in the past need to renew every year. This regulation is applied only if the companies remain active in the business. In addition, the amendment also said that the procedure of obtaining Company Registration Certificate (TDP) will be simplified and the administration fee to renew the TDP will be eliminated (read also: How to Get Domicile Letter + Free Sample).
It means that trading companies need to renew their TDP after 5 years with submitting a letter of notice. This procedure can be done manually or online before the TDP is expired. The companies can submit a hardcopy or softcopy of the documents needed and fill in the form attached in the regulation. The companies will receive a new TDP. If within 3 working days, PTSP does not issue a new TDP, then the current TDP shall automatically consider as renew and continue to apply.
Another important point in the new amendments is that the registration of a new SIUP, the replacement of the lost or damaged SIUP, and the changing of items in the SIUP are not subject to retributions like in the old regulation Number 36 Year 2017.
