What is PMA company in Indonesia? Those who are interested in investing in Indonesia likely want to know about it. PMA (Penanaman Modal Asing) is an Indonesian term referring to a company fully or partially owned by foreigners. It’s different from foreign companies’ representative office because it can obtain a license to do a full-business, not simply local customer care and research like a representative office does.
PMA company is a legal entity in which foreign investors can invest and do their business in the country. It has the same as rights and liabilities as any other company in Indonesia. The owner of the company is minimum two—either an individual or legal entity such as investment company or government. The organization structure must consist of at least one director and one commissioner. PMA can also employ foreign workers as long as they obtain the permit to do so.
