For a permanent stay, however, you can also consider registering a company or setting up a representative office in Bali. Setting up a representative office allows different activities and benefits for business owners.  Also, in the long-term, it is more cost-effective compared to EOR. If you are planning a short-term stay in Bali, however, obtaining a business visa would be an easier option. With a business visa, you will be able to conduct business activities and study the market. However, note that a business visa does not allow you to take up any employment in Indonesia.

Retirement in Indonesia for Married Couples

Married couples often have Indonesia in their bucket list – it is not rare to find them cherishing their long unit by retiring on one of the archipelago’s islands. However, meeting the requirements of a retirement KITAS is sometimes difficult for both of the partners. Note that if one of you already has the retirement KITAS, the other can apply for a visa called a dependent KITAS. A dependent KITAS is a more convenient option as the process and requirements are simpler. In fact, you can also apply a dependent KITAS for your kid when retiring if he or she is under 18 years old.

Paying Taxes When Retired in Indonesia

Once you get a retirement KITAS or a dependent KITAS you become a resident in Indonesia. Therefore you must report your global income in Indonesia. Alike to Indonesians, a foreigner on a retirement visa must also pay the Indonesian Personal Income Tax. See the clarifying table regarding the taxable income.
