India is the world’s tenth largest economy and also one of the fastest growing making it a very attractive location for investment.

India is drawing in huge amounts of new investment.

India has become a major player on the global stage. Many multinationals now have a presence in India and Indian companies too are investing abroad.

Given the scale of recent economic growth in India, it has developed into a very important location for expanding Irish companies and multinational companies. There is considerable scope to use Ireland as a platform for investing into India. The attractions of using Ireland include:

  • Competitive cost base – significant competitiveness improvement 
  • English speaking 
  • Young, dynamic and well educated workforce 
  • Common law legal system 
  • Various withholding tax exemptions for interest and dividend payments

  • Gateway to Europe
  • Member of the Eurozone 
  • Single Financial Services Regulatory Authority 
  • 12.5% corporation tax rate on trading profits
