Under the Company Law of Indonesia, when it comes to business registration in Indonesia, one of the requirements is having a business address. In almost all cities in Indonesia, a residential address is not permitted for business registration.
Therefore, a non-residential business address is mandatory to register your company, regardless if they are PT (local company), PT PMA (foreign company), or representative office.
Important Reasons to Have an Official Business Address
There are many important reasons why all companies in Indonesia must have an official business address.
First of all, you need a legit business address for the registration of a tax identification number or NPWP. Having an NPWP makes you a legal taxpayer and it is your first step to meet all tax requirements in Indonesia. Once your NPWP registration is approved, the tax authorities require a valid business company to send you the NPWP document.
Secondly, if you happen to have to obtain a permanent business trading license (SIUP), an official business address in Indonesia is also mandatory. A registered business address is one of the five required documents for the SIUP application. Possessing SIUP means that your company can carry out trading activities in Indonesia.
Another important reason for you to have an official business address in Indonesia so that you can register your company information and have them kept in the Indonesian Companies List and Database under the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. Indonesian Companies List and Database consists of information of all companies in Indonesia and the information is available for law enforcement and specific public members.
Can a Company Have Multiple Business Addresses in Indonesia?
Currently, there is no particular legislation to prohibit companies to have more than one business address in Indonesia.
However, this does not mean that you can have multiple business addresses for your company, regardless whether they are virtual offices or physical offices. It is of general understanding that every Indonesia-based company can only own just one business address.
The reason behind this is that you need a specific business address to register for your business NPWP; it will be impossible to do so with multiple business addresses.
Besides, it confuses clients and staff if you have multiple addresses for your company. Also, the Indonesian Companies List and Database only legally recognise one business address.
