Facebook Gets Initial Approval To Set Up Local Unit In Indonesia: Source by sherifastro: 01:30 pm On 9 Sep
<r>Facebook Inc has received an in-principle approval to set up a domestic unit in Indonesia,

Said a senior government source from the Southeast Asian nation, home to the social networking giant's fourth-largest user base.<br/>
<br/>
Indonesia has been pushing multinational technology firms to be locally incorporated, arguing that companies such as Alphabet Inc's Google set up small business entities to provide "auxiliary" services and get away with minimal taxation, while booking most of their revenue from the country elsewhere.<br/>
<br/>
In fact, Google has been locked in a months-long dispute over allegations by Indonesia's government that the search giant had not made enough annual payments. The outcome of this is expected to indicate how the government may pursue others such as Facebook and Twitter Inc for taxes.<br/>
<br/>
Facebook is now in the process of establishing a local unit in the country, said the senior government source, who has direct knowledge of the matter but declined to be identified as the information was not public. The social media giant currently operates in Indonesia through an office in central Jakarta.<br/>
<br/>
Indonesia had 69 million monthly active Facebook users as of the first quarter of 2014, placing the country fourth globally after the United States, India and Brazil, according to data from the company.<br/>
<br/>
Facebook did not respond to requests for comment and has not provided an update on the number of its users in Indonesia.<br/>
