Registering Representative Company in Indonesia

Contact Our Consultants

A representative office means market presence without large capital investment

The primary purpose of representative offices in Indonesia is testing the water before the actual company incorporation.

Furthermore, a representative office might conduct market research, approach potential clients and build brand awareness of your business. However, no activities that generate profit are allowed, and this is the prominent factor that distinguishes a representative company in Indonesia from other legal entities.

Benefits of Representative Office in Indonesia

Low Incorporation Cost

As mentioned, a representative office (RO) is an affordable way of how to penetrate the market in Indonesia. Whether you are not sure about your target audience or the presence of business partners, these companies will help you to understand the Indonesian market properly.

Visa Sponsorship

Even though representative offices are not permitted to generate revenues, they are entitled to sponsoring work and stay permits for their foreign employees. Moreover, an RO can sponsor a business visa for business partners coming to Indonesia.

Organisational Structure

To establish a representative office in Indonesia might be the most feasible solution for many entrepreneurs due to its lenient corporate structure. As opposed to a foreign company no shareholder or director is required, and only one chief executive is sufficient.

  • Matthias Coessens - Empyrean

    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.

    Cekindo assisted us with a selection of our local distributor in Indonesia and organised several meeting in Jakarta. Their assistance enabled us to meet our potential local partners and choose the best distributor conveniently. The decision to cooperate with Cekindo was based on a recommendation from our prominent partner in Bali and we cannot be more grateful. Cekindo’s systematic work, active communication, thoroughness and professionalism was exceptional.

    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.

    After extensive research online, I reached out to several companies including Cekindo. Cekindo’s info package and summary of services were by far the most thorough and professional and their pricing was competitive and reasonable. Cekindo’s sound knowledge of all administrative requirements gave me the confidence that my company incorporation of 100% foreign owned export company was being executed correctly and legally.
