NIB Is: Definition, Benefits, Terms and How to Make It

NIB is an identity that must be owned by business actors. The existence of a NIB allows business licensing to be easier and safer.

Then, what is the actual NIB, its benefits, and how do you make it? Let's peel one by one regarding NIB in the following description!


1. What are NIBs?

A business Identification Number or NIB is a business actor's identity issued by the government through the OSS (Online Single Submission) agency. NIB is distinguished according to the output of the product or service produced. NIB consists of 13-digit random numbers that are equipped with security and electronic signatures.

Apart from being used as an identity, NIB has other functions such as Company Registration Certificate (TDP), Import Identification Number (API), and Customs Access, and is often used as a condition for obtaining SIUP (Trade Business License) and Halal Certificate.

The following is the form of a NIB in the form of a document

2. NIB Legal Basis

The government issued a policy related to NIB which was contained in RI Presidential Regulation No. 91 of 2017 concerning the Acceleration of Business Implementation.

With these regulations in place, it will be easier for business actors to obtain permits and not need to bother dealing with various business documents because NIB is a number that is integrated with various systems.

So, you don't need to bother with documents such as TDP (Company Registration Certificate), or API (Importer Identification Number), for importer and exporter customs access rights.

NIB must be owned by business actors. This refers to Government Regulation No. 24 of 2018 concerning Electronically Integrated Business Licensing Services. The regulation explains that every business actor, whether individual or non-individual, is required to register a NIB with the OSS institution electronically. The following is a list of business actors who are required to have it:

1. Business actors in the form of individuals, for example, online shops

2. Limited Liability Company

3. Cooperatives

4. Public Company

5. Regional Public Company

6. Public Service Agency

7. Broadcasting Institutions

8. Civil Partnership

9. Firm Fellowship

10. Business Entities Established by Foundations

11. Limited Partnership

12. Other Legal Entities Owned by the State

In addition to the two rules above, the government also emphasizes the obligation to have a NIB for SIUP or commercial licensing in Government Regulation No. 24 of 2018 Article 5 Paragraph (1).

3. Functions and Benefits of NIB

Apart from being used as a business identity, ownership of a NIB is something that brings benefits to business owners. The following is a series of functions and benefits.
