    Hey Guys,

    I have been stuck at trying to find out how to setup a company in India. I'm not an India citizen so its super hard and I'm not sure if there are another method.

    If you have experience or tips let me know.

    Regards

    Company Registration here in India is a lengthy process and
    require bit of expertise and know-how to deal with bureaucratic officals.

    And I am proud to say that I can assist you if you are looking for Consultancy for Taxation/Corporate matters.

    don't intimidate him. If he is not selling any physical goods , it is a piece of cake.

    . From where to get Certificate of Incorporation, Tax registration, State environment body clearances, Local municipal clearances.

    Infact leave all things aside as you stated about things other physical goods i.e. services - Just describe out how to get Service Tax Registration No.

    Setting up a company in India is not expensive or hard but very bureaucratic and slow. If you can find a dependable agent then that would be the best model. Do a search for Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion, Government of India, known as Dipp and search Google or at the site for "entry Strategy for foreign investors" (sorry I can't post urls yet). This would give you a good start. Hiring commercial lawyers in India is inexpensive, if you are from the West and they should be able to guide you in finding a good agent and not a fly-by-night operation.
