So you want to start a business in Indonesia? You’d better get comfortable with the idea that every business is susceptible to failure, especially when you commit some irreversible mistakes that stop you from progressing further in the market.
Here are the top reasons for unsuccessful market entry we have compiled from people who have done business in Indonesia for the past decade. We’re hoping that you can learn from the lessons, and take advantage of these useful resources to guarantee your market entry success in Indonesia.
The main reason why some startups fail is that they have done little or no research of the market they want to make an entry. This could mean not selecting the proper market for your services or products, identifying the wrong client base, setting inadequate pricing, or not having enough knowledge of your competitors.
Extensive market research is extremely important, accompanying the great products or services you offer when you start a business in Indonesia.
It is never a good idea to work in a foreign country without understanding its legal rules and regulations, or certain red tapes. Especially in a country like Indonesia, you will set your business up for a complete failure.
We can’t emphasize this enough — local laws and regulations in Indonesia are complicated, and sometimes a little ambiguous. Plus, they are frequently amended. Therefore, get as much information of local legal basics before anything else. If you do not have sufficient resources to cover the complex regulatory issues, please seek advice from Cekindo.
We understand that as a startup, especially who is new to the whole Indonesian business scene, trying to do every business activities yourself and fit your expenditure within your budget is unavoidable. However, there are some tasks you shouldn’t take the DIY approach. The reasons are simple: they are either mundane tasks distracting you from your core business activities, or they are too complicated and you will risk your business to be non-compliance with certain laws or regulation.
Therefore, outsourcing or engaging a professional third party will be your best option. Non-core activities that are suggested to be outsourced include accounting and tax reporting, payroll processing, recruitment, audit and review services, etc. For legal compliance processes such as company registrationin Indonesia, product registration, local partner selection, business licenses, business visa and work permit, legal advice from a professional consultant is for a higher chance of approval.
Assuming everything is the same as in your home country while doing business in Indonesia will get you into deep trouble. Why? – Because Indonesia has their own culture and regulations as well.
While you shouldn’t just say “Yes” to all things that don’t fit your standards, trying to push things too hard on staff, or challenge the authorities, will get you no way. Respect their cultures and regulations, adjust situations you can control, and adapt yourself to this new business environment will double your market entry success.
