Indonesia is one of the important economic powerhouses in the world that many investors want to do business in for a lot of reasons. From its strategic location to access to huge international markets, abundant resources to a vibrant investment environment, Indonesia makes an excellent choice for doing business.

There are several requirements for registering a business in Indonesia that you must comply with, and one of those is having a registered business address.

Every business in Indonesia will require a designated location with a registered business address. This registered business address allows the follow-up for regulatory compliance issues, communications, correspondence and the smooth operation of the business.

However, many business owners are tempted to use a residential address for their business purposes and little do they know that the use of a residential address for their businesses will lead to non-compliance.

Except for Jakarta that doesn’t need a domicile, no investor is allowed to do business in Indonesia with a company address that is the same as the owner’s residential address.

This rule applies to every type of legal entity in Indonesia including local companies, foreign-owned companies, and representative offices.
