Setting up a dream business entity is certainly something to look forward to. Because before we make it, there must be a lot of things that we need to do, from thinking about the business concept, what products and services will be offered, to strategies for making promotions. In order for all plans to run smoothly, of course you also need to have a permit legally. In Indonesia, you can get this permit by applying for a Trading Business Permit (SIUP). Let’s see a further explanation about SIUP and the steps for submitting it!

SIUP is an operating license for all companies or business entities that focus on the trade sector, for example, such as the sale of goods and services.

The licensing itself will be issued by the Industry and Trade Office in accordance with the domicile of the company or business entity.
