Key Tax Considerations and Implications for US Businesses Operating in India

Availability of land, labor and resources continues to make India an attractive destination for foreign direct investment (FDI). FDI inflow into India has been rising steadily over the past couple of years and has reached a new high of nearly USD 44.85 billion in the year 2017-18.

Furthermore, the government has initiated tax and regulatory reform, a trend that should continue to make India increasingly attractive to investors. In a new Ease of Doing Business report by the World Bank, India is now ranked 77th, having jumped up 23 places since last year. While the Indian government has made strides in uncomplicating their complex tax system, understanding the key points of taxation in India is still essential for US businesses to have the context to make informed decisions, particularly on how US tax reforms in turn effect a firm’s office or subsidiary in India.

On January 23rd,  2019, Sahil Aggarwal, an International Business Advisory Manager of Dezan Shira & Associates, will be addressing the audience as a part of Birchtree Global Incubator Accelerator Program (BGIAP). BGIAP is a comprehensive program, custom designed to give business leaders the information, resources and contacts needed to make informed global market entry decisions. Distinguished Fortune 500 C-Suite leaders, noted legal, tax, and HR firm partners and in-country government economic advisors provide personalized advice and support to participants in this program. The program curriculum includes interactive live discussions, self-paced webinars, country specific materials and research data. Click here for more details.

During the presentation, Sahil will use his on-the-ground experience and tax expertise in the Indian market to address tax issues and other policy implications on US businesses including surrounding human capital movement, the risks and implications of operating a liaison office in India, tax considerations for mergers & acquisitions, transfer pricing issues, how to save money based on location, and marketing intangibles, in addition to the implications of US tax reforms on investments in India and an overview on repatriation of funds from India.
