subsidiary or agent in india

Why is having my own set-up ideal when it comes to the Indian market compared to working with an agent?

There are pros and cons to both approaches – own set-up and agent – and most of them are to do with transparency and level of investment.

Own Set-up Agent
Pros You stay in control of all aspects

You internalise everything you learn about the Indian market

Setting up your own subsidiary in India is getting easier and easier

You don’t need to become an expert on every aspect of doing business in India

A good way to get your first taste of India’s market potential without major investment

Cons There’s a lot to focus on and you really need to hire the right Indian team to ensure you know what is going on

It is not the cheapest option

You don’t know that your agent is working 100% for you

You don’t really learn what is working and not working for you
