ESTABLISHMENT OF BRANCH, LIAISON AND PROJECT OFFICE

We assist foreign companies in setting up business in India by way of establishing branch office, liaison office or project office in India. Liaison office acts as a channel of communication between the principal place of business or head office and entities in India. Liaison office cannot undertake any commercial activity directly or indirectly and cannot, therefore, earn any income in India. Foreign companies planning to execute specific projects in India can set up temporary project/site offices in India. A branch office is not allowed to carry out manufacturing activities on its own but is permitted to subcontract these to an Indian manufacturer.

We analyze the risks and potential business growth for the companies and advice them on the most suitable entry route to India. We conduct due diligence on behalf of companies on behalf our clients. We assist companies in taking requisite permissions and approvals from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). We advise our clients such as Maipu Communication Technology Co Ltd., Masonite India, ZETO, Chetra Industries, etc. in complying with the regulations laid down by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP). We also assist our clients in filing the requisite applications and forms such as form FNC with the RBI and other documents with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) including annual filings.
