In Bali, there are some options in terms of company structures that you can choose from to acquire property. However, some of these options have restrictions that you must be aware of, especially when you are a foreign investor who is considering running your business as well as buying and owning your own property in Bali.
We will go into details of these options so that you can acquire your property in Bali with the least effort possible.
This used to be a very common choice in Bali but it is relatively risky as compared to other structures. This practice is becoming less and less prevalent because the BKPM is now performing stricter investigation into its ownership. Most of the time BKPM finds that the income of the Indonesian individual owning the property does not match the price of the property purchased.
But, the practice is perfectly fine with a nominee company as there is a legally binding agreement. You as the beneficiary and a representative of the nominee company will have to sign a loan agreement in order for the process to be legal.
