kerap terjadi diskusi tentang bagaimana bentuk badan usaha praktik arsitek di indonesia yang tidak berbentuk perseroan terbatas (pt). disini saya kutipkan model yang diulas oleh National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) keluaran tahun 2005-2006, sebuah badan federasi non-profit di amerika serikat yang mengurus sistem lisensi arsitek.
LEGISLATIVE GUIDELINES AND MODEL LAW
A partnership (including a registered limited liability partnership), a limited liability company or a corporation should be admitted to practice architecture in a state if
(1) two-thirds (2/3) of the general partners (if a partnership), two-thirds (2/3) of the mangers (if a limited liability company), or two-thirds (2/3) of the directors (if a corporation) are registered under the laws of any state to practice architecture or engineering;
(2) one-third (1/3) of the general partners (if a partnership), one-third (1/3) of the managers (if a limited liability company), or one-third (1/3) of the directors (if a corporation) are registered under the laws of any state to practice architecture; and
(3) the person having the practice of architecture in his/her charge is himself/herself a general partner (if a partnership), or a manager (if a limited liability company), or a director (if a corporation) and is registered to practice architecture in that state. The board should be empowered to require by regulation any partnership, limited liability company, or corporation practicing architecture in that state to file information concerning its officers, directors, managers, beneficial owners, and other aspects of its business organization, upon such forms as the board prescribes.
