When it comes to relocating a foreign company, the process does not have to be difficult as long as the company owner follows all of the legal requirements. However, although it is not difficult, doing so is often time-consuming. Time that could be dedicated to other areas in business.
For instance, some documentations in Indonesia may take up to six months to be fully processed. Furthermore, the requirement of relocating a foreign company to Indonesia dictates that it may only be done by one who owns a work permit and visa as well as any necessary business registration documents and licenses.
Although possession of a work permit and visa are a requirement for the relocation, it is not necessary for the company owner to live in Indonesia just because the owner has chosen to relocate the company to Indonesia.
This is because the owner of the company is permitted to hire a person who will be tasked with managing the company as well as visiting the country and the organization whenever such may be deemed necessary.
The entire process can be somewhat confusing for some, especially for those who are new to Indonesia and not particularly familiar with the language or the environment.
