For foreign companies looking to set up in the country, the need for reliable local business consultants is vital for the initial set up of your PMA or representative office and for subsequently doing business in Indonesia. Global Business Guide Indonesia is in direct contact with local Indonesian companies that offer a wide range of services including legal services, accountancy and tax advisory. The organisations are exclusively selected for their reputation in offering the highest quality of service as well as their experience in dealing with international clients.

PMA & Representative Office Establishment

When choosing to do business in Indonesia you may wish to enter the market through a representative office which provides you with a legal presence in the country but without the right to undertake business transactions or make sales. Alternatively, you may wish to set up a foreign direct investment company called a PMA that is a wholly (or partly) foreign owned limited liability company. Global Business Guide can direct you to reputable legal and consultancy firms that can guide you through the process of selecting what is the most suitable business structure for you as well as the necessary licensing and legal procedures.

Services covered include:

  • Establishment of Business Entities (PMA, Joint Venture & Representative Offices)
  • Permits and Licensing
  • Business Hosting

Doing Business in Indonesia

The Indonesian business environment and legal structure may be quite different from your home market or foreign markets you have worked in previously. Having access to sound business advice on legal matters related to human resources, immigration, intellectual property as well as accountancy and financial reporting is important to ensure the smooth running of your business. Global Business Guide Indonesia can direct you to firms specialised in tax and accountancy as well as legal and consultancy firms specialised in working with international corporations.

Services covered include:

  • Accountancy
  • Tax Advisory
  • Legal Due Diligence
  • International Trade

  • Foreign and Domestic Investment Law
  • Licensing
