Purchase Indonesia shelf company
If you are looking to conduct immediate business activities in Indonesia, Tetra Consultants highly recommends you to purchase an existing Indonesian shelf company or ready-made company. To summarize this fast solution, you will own an Indonesian company with a corporate bank account within 3 working days. This shelf company is dormant since incorporation and does not have had any forms of business activities.
In contrast, it will take approximately 12 to 14 weeks if you were to register a new Indonesian company and open a new corporate bank account from scratch. Tetra Consultants is very experienced in this field and will be happy to guide you through this process.
There are many advantages to this fast solution as compared to registering a new Indonesian company from scratch.

- Tetra Consultants has already appointed 2 nominee shareholders, 1 local nominee director and 1 nominee commissioner for this shelf company. As such, the shelf company is legally compliant with all Indonesian regulations. Throughout the process of changing corporate structure, our nominees will continue to be appointed to ensure your business stays compliant.
- A shelf company has an earlier date of incorporation and this will result in more credibility from your customers, suppliers and bankers.
