Like a person who owns a residence or domicile, a company also has the same thing. If a person proves his domicile by identity card, the company address in Indonesia is proved by SKDP.
What is SKDP?
SKDP is Surat Keterangan Domisili Perusahaan or Company’s Domicile Certificate. This certificate contains information about the domicile of a company. To get an SKDP, a limited liability company (better known as PT) must have a deed which has been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. And the chosen domicile must be in the zoning that has been determined by the government.
Who issued the SKDP?
SKDP is issued by Kelurahan (a kind of government authority) whose working area covers the domicile of the company. The certificate will be signed by Lurah as the designated government authority. Generally, the certificate was also signed by the Camat. However, this depends on the rules of each Province.
As for companies domiciled in rural areas, SKDP is issued by the Kepala Desa and also signed by the Camat. There are several documents that you need to prepare as a requirement to apply an SKDP. The required documents can be different in each region, so it’s a good idea to ask the local municipality for more details.
How to Get a Company’s Domicile Certificate
To register your company address in Indonesia, there are several procedures you need to follow:
Requesting an Introduction Letter of SKDP from RT/RW
First, bring all the requirements to the RT where your company is domiciled. RT will give you an introduction letter which must be signed by RW as well.
- Go to the Kelurahan Office
After the letter is signed by RT and RW, you must bring it to the Kelurahan or Kepala Desa. Then you will be required to fill in the company’s domicile application form that addressed to the Head of PTSP (Pelayanan Terpadu Satu Pintu) of Kelurahan.
Issuance of SKDP
Next, you are just waiting for the process of issuing SKDP. The duration for the issuance of the SKDP is uncertain but generally takes about three to eight days since the requested documents are received by the Kelurahan. So, it’s best to ask how long it takes to apply SKDP in your Kelurahan.
Cost of Making SKDP
Basically, making SKDP is free. But in practice, you may be subject to contribute some money. The amount of donation can be different in every region in Indonesia. So it’s good to set aside funds for it.
Use of SKDP
SKDP has a vital role in the initial phase of establishment of a new company. SKDP is used as a description of company domicile and is also required to manage the licensing of other company licenses such as Trading Business License (SIUP), Company Registration Certificate (TDP) or Taxpayer Identification Number (NPWP) of Business Entity.
