India is a big country with a well-developed economy and lots of natural resources available. It introduces numerous opportunities both for local and foreign businessmen, including thanks to creating favorable conditions for investments and getting tax benefits. These advantages are usually associated with an option of company registration in India.

Advantages of the Jurisdiction

Starting company in India is a promising endeavor in view of the following benefits this jurisdiction offers:
  • easy process of establishing a business presence that is not costly;
  • lots of local opportunities to handle business and entering global markets;
  • moderate and even low costs to involve local employees;
  • availability of diversified asset protection options;
  • favorable tax conditions.
If you wish to know more about the benefits you may enjoy after establishing a company in India, provide the details of your case to Prifinance lawyers.

Major Forms of Legal and Business Presence

If you plan to register company in India or establish your activity in India in any other way, this business objective can be practically realized in these forms:
  • Private company – a business entity that may be founded by two persons at least whose financial commitments are constricted to the investments made solely. The maximal number of shareowners is 200 for this corporate entity. Specific restrictions on the transfer of shares are applied in this case and are fixed in the company’s statutory documents.
  • Public company – a corporate formation that may be established by 7 persons at least. These shareholders are allowed to transfer their shares without restrictions. An entity itself can also offer its shares to the general public. The liability of shareowners is also limited in this case to the investments made.
  • Branch – an option suitable for abroad business that intends to carry out commercial activities in the territory of India without registering a separate legal entity. This is a more suitable option for non-resident entrepreneurs who wish to test local business opportunities prior to entering India with greater amounts of investments.
  • Liaison office – a type of formation suitable for overseas enterprises who wish to carry out in the territory of India research and promotional tasks only. Registration is required in this case.

Registration Requirements and Steps

The process of company formation in India is carried out in a couple of stages and it requires knowledge and time. The representatives' support reduces the term and saves the strength of entrepreneurs, but it will be necessary to pass all instances. Approximately, company incorporation in India covers these stages:
  1. Defining your business priorities and creating a business plan for a future Indian enterprise.
  2. Developing, checking, and choosing a business name for an Indian business entity.
  3. Gathering details about the founders, beneficiaries, and managers of the future Indian company.
  4. Choosing and formalizing a registered address for a future Indian enterprise.
  5. Preparing the constituent documentation (Corporate Charter, a list of management and secretariat, the responsible persons-residents, data on the registered capital, the name of the company) and notarizing translations into English.
  6. Submitting an application for registration along with documents required. Paying applicable duties and fees. Obtaining a registration certificate in the case of a positive decision.
  7. Registration for tax and social security purposes.
  8. Opening a corporate bank account.
  9. Obtaining licenses and authorizations in the cases foreseen by the local laws.
Contact Prifinance lawyers to get more details on how company formation in India will be carried out in your concrete case.

Legal and Regulatory Framework

Entrepreneurs are increasingly studying India as a jurisdiction for transnational business. The country has the Anglo-Saxon common law system, so it is convenient to build low-tax schemes. The registry in the country is open, and business data is entered into it and disclosed to Indian registered agents - their involvement is mandatory. Therefore, the international status of enterprises registered in the jurisdiction is convincing enough. A firm established in India must:
  • hire at least two directors - private entities (residence is insignificant) and a secretary - a local resident;
  • rent a "physical" office and register it at the address;
  • keep accounting records, prepare and submit to the control authorities annual, profit, and accounting reports;
  • perform audits and provide audit reports to the authorities;
  • indicate the country of registration and the name of the company in the correspondence.
If the capital of the founders is of foreign origin, the company in India is opened as a private company or an open type company. It is allowed to use either representative offices or subsidiaries for international business. They are controlled by a foreign parent company, and all financial flows to accounts from abroad are converted into rupees.

Tax System in India

If you plan to buy or setup company in India, the following tax features should be taken into consideration, among others:
  • Corporate income tax rate – (i) resident companies – (a) 25% or 30% - vary based on the turnover, (b) 15% or 22% - provided that specific conditions are observed (ii) non-resident companies (through their permanent establishments) – 40%
  • Personal income tax rate – 42.744%
  • GST tax (instead of VAT) – 5-28% in view of the category of goods and services
  • Withholding tax rates (for non-residents) – (i) dividends – 20% (ii) interests – 5-40% (iii) royalties – 10%
  • Capital gains tax rate – may vary in view of the terms of obtaining gains, types of transactions, and taxpayers.

Collaborated with the company for 3 years. I can’t say that everything was smooth from the point of view of organizing the work; there was confusion in the structure of the work, etc. But I’ll specifically highlight employee Lyubov Malinowski, she very diligently corrected all errors and was in touch at the right time, her help was significant in all processes and she approached all issues precisely. I would like to separately highlight the moment when she solved the problem at her own expense, which speaks of the person’s professionalism and increased responsibility.

As a software development crew at FewMoreTaps OÜ, we've had the pleasure of working with Prifinance on some key financial moves.First of all, navigating the world of corporate banking and finance can be a maze, but Prifinance made it feel like a walk in the park. They helped us set up a corporate bank account without the hassle of jumping on a plane or drowning in paperwork. Everything was done remotely, smoothly and securely.But that's not all. We had a slightly time-sensitive situation when it came to changing the beneficiary details on our account. Prifinance stepped up to the plate and handled everything quickly and professionally.It's not just about getting the job done. It's about how Prifinance does it. They're all about making complex financial matters simple and accessible for companies like ours. Plus, their team, especially Liubov Malinowski, has been nothing short of fantastic to work with - professional, timely and always on the ball.In short, FewMoreTaps OÜ wholeheartedly endorses Prifinance OÜ. Whether it's opening bank accounts remotely or navigating the financial legalities of running an international business, these guys have got your back.

I'm thrilled with my experience with PriFinance! They helped me obtain a crypto license in Estonia without any hassle. The team was super understanding and always available to answer my questions and assist. It was great to see how they put effort into preparing the documents to ensure everything went smoothly. I'm delighted with the outcome and highly recommend PriFinance to anyone looking to get a license stress-free!
Opening an account with Prifinance in a Swiss bank was such an easy and quick process that I was shocked. It all started with the first call, where I received detailed guidance on the required documents and the entire procedure.One of the key highlights was their attention to detail. As someone who usually gets tangled up in paperwork, I was pleasantly surprised when they sent me all the documents and instructions clearly and neatly. No misunderstandings!Honestly, I expected opening a Swiss bank account to be complex and time-consuming, but thanks to Prifinance, I felt like a professional financial expert. Thank you for making this process so easy and enjoyable!
