The Importance of Corporate Secretarial Services in Indonesia

Corporate secretarial services are important when doing business in Indonesia because these services will not only give you expert advice, but also the specialists will use their expertise and knowledge to troubleshoot each unique issue.

The unique approaches that a corporate secretarial provider apply to your business will help your company grow in all possible aspects.

What to Look for Before Engaging a Corporate Service Provider

Since the quality of a corporate service provider makes or breaks your business, therefore when it comes to choosing a corporate secretarial firm, you should do it discreetly with proper research and due diligence.

Several things you should look into when you choose a corporate service provider for your business:

  1. Depending on the type of your legal entity (local company, foreign-owned company or representative office) you must choose a provider who is familiar with your company type.
  2. Your corporate service provider must be able to give you advice on corporate bank account issues including those accounts overseas. They should also advise you on how these accounts can be managed and controlled effectively.
  3. You must make sure that the corporate secretarial service firm is legally registered in Indonesia and they have years of experience and knowledge in the Indonesian market.
  4. Ask them about the number of the clients they have served and take a look at their portfolio. A reputably established service provider must have a strong portfolio with positive testimonials to show.
  5. Find out the reputation of the firm that you are going to partner with. Check out what the former clients say about this firm and do some research online and offline.
