Grant Thornton LLP has launched an India Tax and Business Services Gateway, which will assist U.S. companies interested in either establishing a presence or structuring investments in India.   The group will be led by director of India development services Renuka Kathpal, and will be based out of Grant Thornton’s Seattle office. The group will serve as a single point of contact on various tax and regulatory issues related to structuring investment into India, and will initially concentrate on technology-focused and small and midsized businesses.   “Grant Thornton has substantial experience in handling international clients through our international business centers,” said Carol R. Banford, Grant Thornton managing partner of international client services. “This gateway will work very closely with the IBCs to enable clients to get a much quicker response.”   Previously, Kathpal served as a partner with Grant Thornton International member firm Walker, Chandiok Grant Thornton in India, where she headed the inbound investment services group. She has nearly 10 years of experience in tax and regulatory work, as well as experience working with transnational companies to help them obtain regulatory approvals and registrations.
