    Benefits of Using Undername Export to Send Your Items

    The key benefit of using undername export is this being the fastest way to export your items from Bali. If not using this service, you would need to set up a company or use expensive courier services. Undername export allows you to skip setting up a company and apply for export licenses.

    Instead, Emerhub takes full responsibility for delivering your items. Including handling the process with customs authorities. In addition to the above, an important benefit the undername export users experience is being able to export immediately.

    Requirements for Customs in Bali

    Undername export has only a few requirements, thus the process is very user-friendly. Opting for undername export in Bali takes you one step closer towards an enhanced and more convenient export logistics. As a professional service provider, Emerhub can handle your items and only needs the following for undername export:

    • Pro-forma invoice from the manufacturer/seller of goods – sensitive items requiring specific customs treatment (materials like specific wood, stones, etc.)
    • The packing is organized by Emerhub – making sure everything is in compliance with the requirements
    • Additional information depending on the type of goods

    Set Up a Company to Export from Bali

    An alternative to using undername export is exporting through your own company in Bali. If you do not own one now, you can set up a foreign-owned company (PT PMA) to export from Bali. Setting up a limited liability company (LLC) also requires paid up capital.

    Set up a foreign-owned export company in Bali when you:

    • Meet the PT PMA requirements
    • Start earning profits out of export from Bali

    Regards to minimum capital requirements you will find useful tips from our previous blog posts: Minimum Capital for PT PMA in Indonesia  and A Foreign-Owned Company Registration Guide.

    Setting up a fully-functioning PT PMA for export may take more than 8 months. By this time your company will have all necessary documentation to successfully operate in Bali. This also gives you time to hire the local staff you need with experience in the field.

    Choosing Correct Classifications for Your Export Company in Bali

    If you export using a foreign-owned company (PT PMA) set up in the past, make sure it is compatible. The business classification for export must be “Trading for export”. Choose accurate classifications during company setup implying to the activities your business will engage in as adding them after is complex (being mostly time-consuming and costly).

    All Foreign-owned Companies Do Not Qualify for Export

    Not only is adding classifications costly and time-consuming. Adding classifications to your PT PMA in Bali is possible only in some cases. For example, if your classification is ”Management consulting” you can take up “Trading”. But having registered for “Hospitality”, export is not allowed.

    Like a well-connected close friend or a trustworthy work colleague

    After many weeks researching and contacting a dozen different agents, we finally shortlisted EMERHUB to help us obtain our first retirement KITAS visa.

    One of the primary reasons we decided to use EMERHUB as our agent was because of the prompt and clear online communications with their Bali branch manager, Triin Tigane.

    There were many other agents – with much lower fees – we had communicated with before our decision to use EMERHUB.

    While doing our due diligence, we were not looking for the lowest fee … we were looking for a single person (or corporate team) we could easily communicate with on a one-on-one basis like a well-connected close friend or a trustworthy work colleague.
