Procedures for Bankruptcy Filing and Debt Suspension (PKPU) Filing in Indonesia

Bankruptcy filing and debt suspension filing in Indonesia are rather complicated. It would be wise to consult with insolvency and bankruptcy professionals who can explain the procedure of corporate recovery in great detail and assist you every step of the way.

  1. File bankruptcy: it can be either self-filing or filing by creditors.
  2. Wait for approximately 30 days to see whether a bankruptcy filing is approved or rejected.
  3. If the bankruptcy filing is approved, arrange a meeting with creditors for a peace proposal.
  4. If approved, the next step is homologation or verification followed by the bankruptcy being terminated or lifted. If rejected, the next step is asset designation followed by asset distribution.

Note: if a bankruptcy filing is rejected, there will be cassation and judicial review before going through the bankruptcy filing process all over again.

In addition to filing bankruptcy, business owners can also file debt suspension. When debt suspension filing is approved, creditors agree to suspend the scheduled payments so that debtors can allocate their resources on coping with and surviving a difficult time.
