The elements of an LKPM report

All Foreign Investemnt Companies (also known as PT PMA) and all those companies with an investment value of more than ten billion rupiahs (IDR 10 billion) are required to submit their LKPM report. BKPM requires companies to submit LKPM report for each separate business activity. There are a few details that must be included in the LKPM report such as:

  1. Information from company’s legal documents such as company’s license number and Tax Registration Number (NPWP)
  2. The number of employees in the company.
  3. Company’s financial BKPM wants to see how much capital has been used so that you must include a balance sheet (or Statement of Financial Position (SOFP) and profit/loss (or Statement of Profit and Loss (SOPL) report of your company.

Submitting the LKPM report

Although now data submission for the LKPM report  is through BKPM’s online licensing system (National Single Window for Investment or known as NSWi), it is still burdensome because lot of details are required in the LKPM report submission such as separate business activities, amount of money business has and how much money has been invested by shareholders.

New businesses filing LKPM report for the first time

Businesses should submit their first LKPM report right after they have been issued Business Identification Number (NIB) through Online Single Submission (OSS) system. If you want to know more about new OSS system, please click here. If business is filling the LKPM report first time, it must first you the company on www.bkpm.go.id to get a login ID (a username) and password. Please remember that all of the registration forms for LKPM are in Indonesian language which can be problematic for some people specially foreign investors who do not really understand Indonesian Language. After getting the username and log in access you can fill your first LKPM report online.

Possible problems in filing LKPM report

One of the main  problem in reporting LKPM is that new companies often fail to generate their username and password to be able to log in. This could be problematic because there is a deadline for submitting the LKPM report and there is penalty if business misses the deadline.

If you fail to submit LKPM report, BKPM will issue a series of warnings followed by a fine if the LKPM report is still not filed. Warnings are issued as follows:

  1. First warning letter; If you miss the LKPM report filing deadline, BKPM will issue the first warning letter to the business. Business must submit its LKPM report withing 30 days of issuance of first warning letter.
