Guide To Doing Business In Indonesia

The market for foreign investors in Indonesia has greatly expanded in the past few years, providing this region with a thriving economy and a lucrative business arena. Here is a brief guide to doing business in Indonesia. 

There are a number of factors that must be kept in mind when beginning business interactions with Indonesia and these include the legal system in the country, the tax systems, investment structures and procedures for exchange, trade and local finance. In addition to this, there is also the issue of deciding on a suitable business that will flourish in Indonesia and then establishing it by hiring locals and using your contacts in the region to manage it.

Before doing business in Indonesia it is necessary to research the country’s market and laws to pinpoint the available sectors in which you can start a new venture. In general, investors and entrepreneurs from foreign countries are allowed to start businesses in Indonesia without having any local support; however, there are a few business sectors that the government does not allow foreigners to undertake without having any local stakeholders. The business sectors that fall under governmental regulation include drinking water, mass media, electric power transmission, distribution or production, harbours, railway lines and atomic reactors. If you are looking to start a business in any of these fields, you will require special documentation and local stakeholders.

Also, industries like public shipping and harbours, aviation, power generation for public use and telecommunications are further controlled by the Indonesian government, which permits a 95% stake for foreigners.

The country allows direct foreign investment, which is governed by two specific laws. According to the law, any foreign investor is required to form a limited company called a Foreign Investment Company or a PMA. The Investment Coordinating Board deals with cases involving foreign investors, documentation and licenses for investment. These licenses are valid for a period of 30 years from the time the company begins production.

For larger corporations that would like to open an office branch within Indonesia, there is a separate set of rules, but these companies are also governed by the Investment Coordinating Board, BKPM. Any company opening a branch in Indonesia is first required to obtain a license from the BKPM before commencing any business in the country.

It is advisable to get involved into all the details of the business and to use a good translator, if you do not know the language, in order to ensure that all your instructions are understood and carried out. Once you have decided on a business and secured local contacts and stakeholders accordingly, it will be fairly easy to do business in this country. If you do not plan on staying in the region to oversee business, it will be important that you appoint a trusted manager or supervisor in your place.
