OK, so you have landed in India and you are about to make the biggest deal in your life! But then you get out of the airport and the first challenge is to find the way to your hotel. And when you wake up and pull the curtains aside you see a totally different world.
The new Company Act which has recently been passed creates serious impact even among locals and requires foreign companies to have at least one local director. Apart of that, all directors are personally liable. Compliance with Indian Law has become a must and requires a compliance officer!
The Indian work culture is totally different from that in Europe. And if you are not assisted, it will cost you. Let us help you. We know how to do it right.
Most companies who are not familiar with India or doing business with India will first want to explore the market before they set up their own company. Is there a market in India for my product? How should I find agents and distributors in India? The Belgium Business Center provides a “ Hire a sales person in India ” - service. For a minimum order period of six months and for a fixed cost per month, we can provide you with a dedicated sales professional whom you could chose to either remotely manage yourself or managed by our local top sales managers. This way you can get a real grip on the Indian market before you start your own company there.
Because Mumbai is already full. Because Chennai also has an international airport and actually has the same potential. Because in Chennai, pricing is moderate compared to Mumbai and Delhi. And because Chennai is the gateway of the South, where half a billion people live. And because in the last year or so Brussels, Flanders and Wallonia set up own trade offices here. Belgium even set up a separate Consulate General in Chennai a few months ago. That’s why Chennai!
We were setting up a company in India and we could not have dreamt of a more fitting solution! This was literally plug and play!
