Companies in Indonesia are required to have a business address for various reasons, of which most are related to regulatory compliance issues and the like. According to the company laws of Indonesia, all announcements and any other material in the company’s name must contain the address of the company. In most cities of Indonesia, a non-residential address is the only one which may be used as a business address of a company. This fact applies regardless of whether the company in question is a locally-owned company, foreign-owned company, or representative office. Locally-owned companies, also known as Perseroan Terbatas (PTs), may use either a physical location or a virtual office for the purposes of supplying a business address. However, foreign-owned companies which are also known as Perseoan Terbatas Penanaman Modal Asing (PT PMAs) as well as representative office generally tend to use physical locations which can be found within the confines of an office building. Although such companies may use virtual offices as well, such a move is not common.
