A Case for Expanding to Batam: How Singapore Based Companies Can Benefit



A strategic location along the busy Malacca Strait shipping route, proximity to Singapore, and several special economic zones (SEZs) makes Indonesia's Batam island an attractive investment/business destination for Singapore based companies.

Offering a cost friendly environment with numerous tax benefits, Batam is an attractive location for companies to expand to and complement their Singapore operations. Companies can benefit from the Singapore-Indonesia expropriation protection and upgraded double taxation avoidance agreements, as well as access Indonesia’s huge 270 million-strong domestic market.  

What are the advantages for Singapore based companies expanding to Batam and how can they facilitate a smooth corporate setup and attract and retain local talent?

Watch this webinar to hear experts in Singapore and Indonesia discuss the advantages of Batam for Singaporean companies and how to get started there. As an added bonus, Marco Reichel, General Manager of Crane Logistics Singapore, a US logistics company active in Batam for more than 10 years will share his experience in the market.
