Bridging The Business and Culture Gap For Expatriate Employees In India

The expansive business scenario in India, which has seen new projects and foreign investment take center-stage, also has a vital component which needs to be acknowledged. That component is the presence of foreign nationals and expatriates who represent their respective companies in India; and are designated to reside in India for a known yet significant duration.

While it is undeniably important the company’s perspective to ensure that the taxes of their expatriate employees are in order and planned for, it is also equally important that the expatriates are aware about the experience of living in India (preferably, prior to relocation), the country’s business and economic trends, the domestic workforce and underlying work culture, and of course, about Indian culture.

To help provide relevant information and insight on the same, we at Coinmen have created an online platform called The Brief, which shares all the information you need as a foreign national looking to establish a business presence in India or planning to live here.

Through The Brief, we hope to facilitate not only an ease of doing business in India for foreign companies but also the ease of living in India for expatriate employees.
