Indonesian government has an online Indonesian company registry where you can search for the existing companies, both local and foreign, that are already registered in Indonesia. This can be useful for at least two reasons:
- See which names are already taken
- Find out whether your potential business partner is (already) registered in Indonesia
Find the registry here: http://bnri.sisminbakum.go.id/
Note that often the legal names and brand names are different, this registry returns only the legal names. For example, if you register a locally owned company, you are requested to use a PT name that is in Bahasa Indonesia but can use brand names that are in English.
