What is TDP (Business Registration Certificate)?

TDP (Business Registration Certificate) is an abbreviation for “Tanda Daftar Perusahaan” in Indonesian. It is an official registration list established based on the provisions of the Law or other related regulations, specifically under Law Number 3 of 1982 concerning Mandatory Company Registration. This record includes various mandatory details that every company must register, obtaining approval from the authorized officials.

Every business entity, whether it’s a PT (Limited Liability Company), CV (Commanditaire Vennootschap), Firma, Cooperative, Foundation, or even an individual, is required to register its business entity. This includes branch offices, subsidiaries, branch offices, regional offices, and agents operating under the company’s name.

In addition to being regulated by Law Number 3 of 1982 on Mandatory Company Registration, the obligation for entrepreneurs to register their business entities is also stipulated in the Minister of Trade Regulation Number 37/M-DAG/PER/2007 concerning the Implementation of Companies, along with Presidential Decree Number 53 of 1998 regarding Business or Activities Not Required to Register.
