India’s 29 states each have different laws. When a business expands into the country, they must understand that laws surrounding their products or services can vary from state to state. No matter a business’ sector, they must explore how laws vary between states before moving into or marketing in an Indian State. Companies must also consider central, state, and local taxes and how they apply. Relying on an Employer of Record helps firms navigate these often-complex laws and ensures compliance.
