Indonesia welcomes foreign investors who want to open companies here through various packages of incentives and regulations. They are also granted the same rights as local investors, which means they must abide by the local legislation when it comes to the incorporation of a company in Indonesia.
The main law governing the company registration procedure is the Indonesian Company Law, also known as Law No.40 of 2007 on Limited Liability Companies. This is the first modern Company Act Indonesia has.
Our company formation consultants in Indonesia can explain the requirements for opening a company under the Company Law.
If you want to relocate to the country, our team also provides services for those who are interested in immigration to Indonesia.
