How Foreign Companies Start A Business In India

A large human capital and an extensive market makes India an attractive destination for overseas investors. According to Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, the FDI figures for April- December 2017 stand at US$ 35.94 billion and this amount is only going to increase as the Government is also working proactively in this regard. The following information is meant to help any investor thinking of starting a business in India.

Entry Plan

The two modes that foreign companies can use to gain access to the country’s market are

Private Limited Company : The easiest way to enter Indian market as 100% FDI in a private limited company is allowed under the automatic route and does not require Central Government’s permission. This is the preferred way to start business in India as incorporating an organization as a wholly owned subsidiary or a joint venture is a speedy and economical process.

Branch/LiaIson/Project Office : A time-taking and costly method as opening of such an office is subject to RBI and/or Government approval and moreover foreign nationals are not allowed to open such offices in India.


A private limited company must have a minimum of two directors and a minimum of two shareholders with one director being an Indian Citizen and Indian National (any person who has spent 186 or more days in the country). The shareholders can be persons or corporate entities. An address must be registered in India as the office and the location decides the legal jurisdiction applicable to the business.

Foreign businesses usually appoint two overseas personnel from their parent company and one local Indian as the three directors with no minimum shareholding requirements of the Indian director enabling the foreigners to hold 100% shares of the new company.

Documentary Requirements

Foreigners appointed as directors are asked to submit passport size photographs along with a copy of their passport and a residence proof (bank statement/utility bill), notarized by the Notary in home country or the Indian embassy. They need not appear in person during the registration process.

A corporate entity acting as a shareholder in a business setup in India needs to submit the Board Resolution authorizing the foreign company’s investment in the Indian venture along with the notarized copy of the Incorporation Certificate of the foreign company.

Cost & Time

The costs involved in starting a business in India are nominal while the process of incorporation takes only a few weeks.

Post-Incorporation Formalities

The indian Director can open the new company’s bank account after which FDI reporting- a process easily completed with Indian legal or accounting professionals’ help, to the RBI should be done ensuring that the new business is compliant with all the regulations and ready to operate.
