Currently, Bali is witnessing a thriving real estate boom, making it an ideal time to consider starting your real estate venture on the island. However, this process involves several key steps. Firstly, you’ll need to establish a PT PMA (foreign-owned company). Following that, you can select a suitable plot of land or an existing building. To run your business smoothly, it’s crucial to obtain the necessary permits, like building permits. These permits aren’t just limited to real estate but also apply to businesses like restaurants, bars, and coworking spaces – essentially covering all types of structures involved in these activities.

An earlier building permit known as an IMB (Ijin Mendirikan Bangunan) has been replaced by these two permits:
1) PBG (Persetujuan Bangunan Gedung) – Building Permit

2) SLF (Surat Laporan Fungsi) – Function Report Certificate, or Usage Permit

This building permit is required for any new construction or renovation. The permit’s main goal is to ensure the safety of buildings and compliance with regulations and zoning laws. The process of obtaining a PBG involves submitting building plans and designs to the local government for approval, ensuring that they meet specific safety and environmental standards.

It is also necessary to renew the permit periodically to ensure the building remains in compliance with regulations.

Obtaining a PBG is a crucial step for anyone planning to construct or renovate a building in Indonesia to ensure public safety and avoid legal issues.


This document is required for certain types of businesses in Indonesia. The SLF must be obtained from the local government and is needed for businesses that involve commercial, industrial, or residential activities that may have an impact on the surrounding area.

In general, an SLF is required when a business operates in a specific zoning area and can potentially affect the local community’s environmental and social aspects. It is important to note that the specific requirements for obtaining an SLF may vary depending on the location and type of business.
