Virtual office for a foreign company operating in Indonesia is a popular choice among foreign investors. In the past, foreign investors can only operate in Indonesia if they have a physical office. The purpose of that regulation is to ensure that at the minimum foreign investors have the financial capability to rent a physical office. Nonetheless, with the growth of technology and the need to further develop the economy that regulation is no longer.
Currently, due to the need to push for more foreign investment in Indonesia, the government allows the use of a virtual office for a foreign company. Furthermore, the government also simplifies the regulation to establish a company (PT PMA) in Indonesia. Not only that, but the new regulation also states that foreign companies can have full ownership of more industries. These changes are in line with the Omnibus Law that focuses on attracting more foreign investments in the country.
