Company Registration in Bali

As one of the most popular destinations in Indonesia, the prestigious island of Bali offers much more than crystal blue water and gorgeous rice paddies.
You would not want to miss the abundant business opportunities available across the island. Start penetrating the market through company registration that can be done in three ways: the establishment of a local company (PT), a foreign-owned company (PT PMA) or a representative office.

FOREIGN OWNED COMPANY / PT PMA

PT PMA can be fully owned by foreign investors. However, some business sectors are restricted for 100% foreign ownership. The establishment of PT PMA allows the provision of visa sponsorhip and employment of foreign workers.

LOCAL PT

Local PT allows only 100% local ownership but does not restrict certain business sectors. Two possible ways for foreigners to set up a local PT: local nominee agreement and shelf company (for quick incorporation).

REPRESENTATIVE OFFICE

Representative Office is mainly used to test the water before incorporating either PT PMA or Local PT. Representative Office allows only marketing-related activities. Profits-generating activities are strictly prohibited.

    When I was looking for a reliable partner who could help with company registration, payroll, taxes and working permit in Indonesia, Cekindo’s domain knowledge and clear communication astonished. Firstly, we decided to pursue cooperation with Cekindo in terms of company registration, but they also assisted me in obtaining the necessary working permits and visas (KITAS), and we use their payroll and tax reporting services until now.

  • Vivek Singh Rathaur

    Cekindo initially helped us with setting up our business structure in Indonesia and getting us all due licenses and approvals. Currently, Cekindo is associated with us as our business partner in Indonesia by providing a face to our name and handling various business activities on our behalf. Without their help, we would be lost in keeping up with regulatory requirements and being a compliant company in Indonesia.
