India has been an important and fixed point on the internationalization map of many companies for decades, whether as a sales, market or production location. One of the largest growth markets worldwide, the country looks set to enjoy continued - high rate - economic growth. Although the Indian market is established as an opportunity for Swiss companies, red tape and a dense regulatory environment discourage many from taking the next step. Companies doing business with or in India often have questions around compliance and regulatory requirements, including the use of special economic zone (SEZ) advantages. They also appreciate insights on financing their Indian operations, applicable transfer pricing regulations and how to deal with money transfers, especially repatriation of funds to Switzerland.
