Indonesia is a Great Place to Incorporate A Business
With its economy constantly growing, Indonesia has registered to have a steady growth at above 5 percent. The Indonesian archipelago has 18,307 islands and is known to be biggest archipelago in the world. Indonesia has abundant mineral resources, including tin, gold, natural gas, coal, nickel and copper. Besides that, minerals such as silver, bauxite and petroleum are also available in smaller quantities. All these reasons stated above make Indonesia the ideal place to start and grow a business.
In this article, you will be provided with the necessary information in regards to the Indonesia Business Guide.
Research on the Country before Incorporating

To start a company, you would need to register your business with the relevant authorities. You can actually seek the help of professional lawyers, chartered accountants or consultants to help you with this. They would be the best people to give you advice on the application process and other types of information that would be most helpful to you.
Understand the Beliefs and Religion
The range of religions practiced in Indonesia is diverse, although around 90% of Indonesians identify themselves as being Muslim, the largest Muslim population of any country in the world. There are six religions recognised by the government – Islam, Protestantism, Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism and Confucianism – meaning citizens must identify themselves as belonging to one of these on official identity documents.
The Islam practiced in Indonesia is predominantly of the Sunni tradition, and is more concentrated in areas including Java and Sumatra. Protestantism is more concentrated in the provinces of Papua and North Sulawesi, whilst most of the populations of the island of Flores are Roman Catholic. Buddhism is mostly practiced around Jakarta, by Chinese and some indigenous Javanese peoples. Hinduism meanwhile, known formally as Agama Hindu Dharma and followed by most of the population of Bali, differs somewhat from the Hinduism practiced in other countries in that the caste system isn’t applied. The sixth religion mentioned, Confucianism, has had a changing position in Indonesian religions, losing its official status in 1978, to then have it reinstated from 2000 onwards.
Working with your Business Associate
A rule of thumb when doing business in Singapore is to take things slowly if you are unsure of things. Building relationships over time will hold you in good stead and help you gain a foothold among the locals. When dealing with the government or local authorities, make sure you have all the facts and information ready because they tend to be very particular about the details. There is nothing more important to Asian culture than respect and honesty so be sure to be polite to others. It is highly important to create a sustainable working relationship which can be maintained for the long run.
