Company dissolution in Indonesia is one of the most cumbersome legal processes.
Running a business in Indonesia is never easy, and entrepreneurs face many challenges. Unfortunately, even the process of dissolving a company in Indonesia is not hassle-free neither for local (PT) nor for limited liability companies (PT PMA).
There are plenty of reasons for a company to wind up or dissolve. The most common ones include the following:
To be able to close a company in Indonesia, a business is obliged to go through a liquidation process.
Liquidation, in other words clearing and settling the assets and liabilities of a company, is the only way how both active and inactive businesses in Indonesia can come to the end of their legal existence.
Who can be a liquidator? A legal consultant, a lawyer or the Board of Directors (BoD) can be a legal liquidator during the process of winding up a company.
The appointed liquidator is responsible for making an announcement about the dissolution in the State Gazette and newspaper. Failure to do so will result in an ineffective liquidation.
In general, the company dissolution process will take between 1 and 1.5 years to complete. According to Act Number 40 of 2007, to dissolve a company efficiently and seamlessly, the process is as follows:
|No||Legal Steps||Duration (Working Days)|
