Hiring contractors in India can be a rollercoaster
Hiring independent contractors in India can be daunting if you aren’t familiar with the local labor laws, including the Contract Labor Act. Misclassifying workers can result in penalties from the Income Tax Department, and Indian courts may require you to retroactively provide benefits like Employees Provident Fund and Employee State Insurance contributions. You should try to pay contractors in India in Indian Rupees (INR) and ensure they have the necessary information to file their Income Tax Return. Rippling streamlines the process so you can grow your global team quickly and compliantly.Read our free guide
