To work legally in Bali you need a working visa (KITAS). Most foreigners running their own business in Bali create a company which then sponsors them for the visa.

The cost of the visa is US$1,200 per year, not including the costs for actually getting the visa.

The application for the working visa can be made in Indonesia, but once it is approved, you need to pick it up at an overseas embassy.
