India Market Entry Strategy

Company Incorporation and Regulatory Compliances

Establishing the best suitable entity for international companies in India 

At TechSci Research, we help international companies to build right legal entity structure for entering into the Indian market that serves the best of the business objectives. We understand and help with the right legal procedures for the entity. 

We provide business & tax advisory, company incorporation/registration, as well as support for obtaining all legal and regulatory approvals. 

For an international company in India, there are different entry options to set up their India business. Selecting the right and well-suited legal entity for international company’s subsidiary in India is mostly determined by client’s market-entry strategy, timeline and strategic actions in India – e.g. for production, installation of machinery and export, warehousing and local demand processing of goods or local service offerings in India.
