Our Esteemed Clients
Some of our Esteemed Clients and What They Say
"The biggest problem we faced as a company was guidance. We only had a dream to start a design business and organically grow it. Completely unaware of how the compliance works, we have been looted and misguided and kept in dark several years causing us to pay a huge amount of fine for hardly any mistake of ours. After 3 years of mess, we decided to speak to the startup zone. It's been 4 years since working with the startup zone. What we experienced as a company is equal loyalty, honesty, and completely ethical. We have previously had experience (prior to the startup zone) of misguiding so that the compliance company makes revenue at various Intervals. But the startup zone guided us through every step, helped us solve our issues, put us through the right people and today all of them are part of our growth story. They are prompt, they don't make us loose any money, and now they take care of all our compliances. I would recommend the startup zone to anyone who wants to start a business, so that you can focus on your idea and business."
"Very professional team. Fantastic at the clarity of what needs to be done, when, how, and the status of things. That comfort and peace of mind is valuable for a startup. I have been working with the Bangalore team (Abhishek, Pavithra & Sharath) for the last six months for all my registrations, compliances and licenses etc and it has been without exception a smooth experience. At times, they have gone beyond their call of duty to help and I much appreciate that. Continue the good work, team!"
"Speed and responsibility, are the only things startups look for from vendors. Sharath and team have been phenomenal in delivering every aspect of secretorial and compliance related services at amazing speed. They’re highly reliable and take ownership in delivering, which has helped me focus on everything else - business. If you’re a startup and want to build a startup without having to worry about compliance then these guys are your best bet. They’re very competitively priced and are experts of their field. I highly recommend them if you’re starting up or have started and need a reliable partner to help free your mind up for what really you should be building. Special mention NIKHIL (lawyer) who has been super fast and available at any time and day. Thanks guys"

Frequently Asked Questions
Our services are a very easy and straightforward process through-out.
If Directors are Residing outside India
If the Directors of the Dubai Company are residing outside India, then neither can the Indian Govt levy Tax on the Income of the Company and nor can they levy Tax on the Income of the Directors. In such a case, both the Company as well as its Directors would be considered as NRI.
If the Directors are Residing in India
Case I: If the Directors are residing in India and Turnover of the Dubai Company is more than Rs. 50 Crores In such a case, the Company would be deemed to be Resident in India and Indian Govt will levy Tax on both the Income of the Directors as well as the Income of the Company.
Case II: If the Directors are Residing in India and Turnover of the Dubai Company is less than Rs. 50 Crores A Foreign Company with turnover/gross receipts of less than Rs. 50 Crores p.a. cannot be considered to be a Resident in India (Circular No. 8/2017 dated February 23, 2017) In other words, if the turnover of the Dubai company is expected to be less than Rs. 50 crores p.a., the Indian Govt considers the company a Non-Resident and therefore cannot levy any Income Tax or GST on this company. The Indian Govt cannot levy any Income Tax or GST on the foreign company even though the foreign company is being controlled by me from India as the provisions of Section 6(3)(ii) don’t get applicable in this case.
In such a case, the Indian Govt levies Tax on the Income of the Directors but not on the Income of the Foreign Company.
Thus, if you have a bank account in Dubai or US or Portugal etc. in your Individual Capacity, the income earned in that individual bank account would be taxable in India if you are residing in India from Rs. 1 onwards. However, if you own a Company outside India, Indian Govt cannot levy Tax on Income of such company which is registered outside India. And therefore, it is not recommended that you open a bank account in your Individual Name outside India and rather open a company outside India as in such a case the Indian Govt does not have the power to levy any tax.
If you are thinking how I know so much about taxes, then let me intimate you that we are CA’s by Qualification with more than 10 years of experience of helping Indian entreprenuers in setting up a company in Dubai. We ourselves have our offices in both India as well as Dubai and understand the law of both the regions and help our clients structure the UAE Company in accordance with laws of both countries.
