Liaison office

A liaison office is usually required by foreign companies that want to establish their bases in India. Since such offices are granted by RBI, India's central banking institution, compliance with certain regulations and prescribed conditions have to be fulfilled. The lead time for obtaining approval in this regard depends on whether your application is referred to the administrative ministry. Liaison offices have some restrictions in terms of representation, promotion, taxation and other commercial activities. The main purpose of a liaison office is to serve as a communication channel between a foreign company and Indian companies.

Depending on what you exactly need, the roll out of a project office may or may not need prior approval from RBI. The process of closure of such offices is straightforward.

Branch Office

When a foreign company wishes to conduct commercial activities in India, they opt for a branch office. With prior approval from RBI, a foreign company through their branch office in India can broaden its scope of activities and be able to deal with export/import, render professional services, execute research work and do a lot of other things.

Limited Companies (Private and Public)

Whether private or public, setting up a limited company in India means gaining full status and freedom for conducting business operations and trading or commercial activities. While this type of business offers you a full-fledged presence, it also asks for greater abidance.

Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

Thankfully, the Government of India has opened its doors for Foreign Direct Investment through Limited Liability Partnerships (LLPs).
