A Guide to Investment Activity Report (LKPM) in Indonesia

In accordance with Regulation No. 6 of 2020, business entities in Indonesia are obliged to submit their investment activity reports (Laporan Kegiatan Penanaman Modal – LKPM) providing a development or construction report (if a business is still non-operational) and a production or operation report (if operations have already started).

Failure to do so will lead to sanctions, such as cancelation of business license, revocation of registration certificate, closure of administrative branch office and imposition of administrative sanctions, imposed by the Indonesian Investment Coordinating Board (Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal – BKPM) or other relevant investment boards in Indonesia.

Businesses with investment value of between IDR 500 million and IDR 10 billion (“Investment Value II”) and more than IDR 10 billion (“Investment Value III”) are required to submit the investment activity report every three months (quarterly). Details are as follows:
