Trading Business Permit (SIUP)
SIUP is a permit issued by the regional government to entrepreneurs to be able to carry out business in the trade and services sector. To apply for a SIUP, you don’t need to wait for your startup business to become big first, because the Indonesian government has issued a policy that stipulates that every company, partnership, or individual company that carries out trading business activities is required to administer a SIUP issued based on the company’s domicile and valid in Indonesia. throughout the territory of the Republic of Indonesia.
Based on the Regulation of the Minister of Trade No. 07/M-DAG/PER/2/2017 , SIUP is valid as long as the company carries out its business activities. In other words, you don’t have to bother applying for an extension, because this document does not have a business license expiration period.
Company Domicile Certificate (SKDP)
Not only managing SIUP, as an entrepreneur who obeys applicable laws and regulations, you are also required to take care of SKDP as a certificate stating that the company has domicile at the address stated in the SKDP.
The SKDP requirements for each domicile are different, for example for the DKI Jakarta Region based on DKI Jakarta Regional Regulation No. 1 of 2014 , SKDP cannot be issued to PT that uses a home domicile address or that is not in the office zone. Therefore, to obtain an SKDP, a domicile address is required in the office zone.
Keep in mind, this document can only be submitted when you already have a company deed. In addition, SKDP also has a validity period and must be extended. If your type of office is a joint office, then the SKDP is generally valid for 5 years. However, this validity period depends on the rental agreement between your company and the office owner. Meanwhile, if you choose to use a virtual office, the SKDP is only valid for 1 year and can be extended.
Company Registration Certificate (TDP)
Before the government issued Government Regulation no. 24/2018 concerning Electronically Integrated Business Licensing Services (PP 24/2018) , TDP can only be managed after you make a deed of establishment, SKDP, NPWP, and SIUP. However, now you can directly apply for TDP through the Online Single Submission (OSS) system after you have made the deed of incorporation.
