We can help you with the entire process from OSS registration to determining the most appropriate licenses for the business you're in.
If you’re planning to do business or trading in Indonesia you’re going to have to set up a business and get the right sorts of license to do that business legally. You’ll need a general business as well as specific licenses that are relevant to your particular business stream. For example, a company in the manufacturing industry needs to have an industrial business license, while a construction company needs to have a construction business license.
The government is trying to make it easier to invest in Indonesia and have introduced the Online Single Submission System (OSS), which is a one-stop-shop for all business licenses. OSS is also where you apply for a business identification number, called a Nomor Induk Berusaha, (NIB.)
Since the creation of the Job Creation Law on November 2, 2020, the government has reformed the licensing process to the Risk-Based Licensing Approach through OSS. By referring to Government Regulation Number 5 of 2021 concerning the Implementation of Risk-Based Business Licensing, this electronic system aims to simplify and speed up the licensing process.

In short, you’re going to need the following business licenses:
A. Single Business Identification Number “NIB”
B. Business License “Izin Usaha”
C. Commercial/Operational License “Izin Komersial/Operasional”
All new and existing individuals or business entities (include MSMEs), and representative offices can get their business licenses through the OSS system.
Indonesia’s Investment Coordinating Board, Badan Koordinasi Penanaman Modal, (BKPM) is still responsible for processing licenses for specific business sectors. You cannot get these licenses through OSS, you’ll have to apply directly to BKPM. Business sectors where this applies are:
For these sectors, licenses can be applied for through the One Stop Service Center (Pelayanan Terpadu Satu Pintu or PTSP Pusat) at BKPM.
