Let us know how we can help you attain your business tax compliance and advisory needs.

Pre-investment, legal and regulatory advisory services in India

Our team is well versed with various aspects of the Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) procedure. We are able to connect you with companies competent enough to advise as well as experienced enough to follow the correct procedure in applying for the various approvals and registrations, essential under the Foreign Direct Investment, avoiding expensive delays caused by procedural discrepancies.

We have a detailed understanding of India’s stringent and complex regulatory system and compliance requirements and provide pre-investment advice to SMEs on:

FDI regulations and procedure

It’s vital to be aware of FDI policy when you’re considering setting up a business in India. India has been making many amendments in FDI policy that offer diverse business opportunities across industries and sectors. Our associates are specialised in providing international organisations with corporate secretarial advisory service to make risk-free investments and to set up their operations in India.

The Foreign Exchange Management Act, 1999

The Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) as it is known was developed to facilitate international trade and payments, as well as promote the orderly development and maintenance of the foreign exchange market in India.

We help with FEMA as well as overseas direct investment and external commercial borrowing. We also help organisations with acquiring necessary approvals from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) as well as various other types of government approvals that go hand in hand with the business set-up process.

Labour laws

The welfare of your local employees in India is protected by a set of laws and regulations which cover their pay and benefits such as the Public Provident Fund (PPF), gratuities, paid leave and so on. QX Corporate Advisors has partnered with renowned lawyers and consultants who have expertise in the area of labour and employment practice. Whilst a dedicated human resources team to oversee employee related matters may be the ideal, at the very least you require an understanding of the labour laws in India and the various provisions made to safeguard your employees’ interests. We are able to provide enterprises with legal advice and consulting on various provisions made to safeguard your employees’ interests.

Corporate and local laws

Our associated legal consultants are well-versed with every aspect of corporate and commercial law. We know what you need to do to stay on the right side of the law and provide complete assistance from registration with Registrar of Companies, advice on tax planning and compliance with international and domestic tax laws to advice on benefitting from various tax treaties, double taxation avoidance agreements (DTAAs), tax holidays and making the most of incentives and exemptions.

Tax and regulatory compliances

The plethora of regulations a company must comply with is often made even more complicated by the frequent amendments made by the government. To achieve compliance would require advice from professionals specialising in various aspects of the Indian regulatory grid with the accompanying financial investment.

We bring together a team of experts on various aspects of regulatory compliance to reduce compliance risk and make the whole process as simple as possible. This also means you benefit from cost savings from management time saved, effective tax optimisation, reduced litigation expenditure and peace of mind.

Cross border tax

Our cross border tax practice focuses primarily on understanding your business objectives. This personalised business knowledge together with an in-depth understanding of the country's tax and regulatory policies forms the basis of the effective analysis and advice we offer on tax and transfer pricing implications of any international transaction.

Our tax consultants are able to come up with practical and innovative solutions considering tax and non-tax factors for a wide range of transactions. These can include corporate expansion, acquisition, expatriate relocation, turnkey contracts and formulation of intra group transfer pricing policies.

Transfer pricing

Transfer pricing policies of multinational companies are scrutinised by the tax authorities across the world to ensure that cross border transactions are appropriately taxed within their jurisdictions. But with many companies engaged in cross border businesses and transfer pricing policies differing across nations, compliance has become a major issue.

Our tax professionals will work closely with you where appropriate and assist you in corporate decision making at various stages of inter-company transactions to safeguard your business interests.

Tax compliance

We work closely with tax and legal advisors who have front-line knowledge of Indian tax laws and all changes made periodically. Our consultants help you to be legally compliant, while ensuring you don’t have to look over your shoulder for advice on any legal matters. We also help our clients prepare an efficient tax plan which not only helps them avoid the inconvenience of tax investigations, but we also help to reduce the tax burden.
