Given India’s complex and bureaucratic accounting, tax and regulatory environment, businesses face significant challenges in their attempts to establish operations here and then remain compliant. Companies are faced with the difficult task of bringing together a team of experts and coordinating their services, making it a tedious and expensive process while not guaranteeing the elimination of compliance risks.
If you are setting up operations in India, we can provide a back office for accounting, payroll, financial reporting, tax and other regulatory compliances. We have the capability of assisting a company of any size – we have helped reduce cost and improve efficiency by becoming the finance and accounting (F&A) team for small to large Indian companies as well as overseas companies.
If you are a small subsidiary of a foreign company in India, we can become your Chief Financial Officer and your in-house accounting team while you focus on your business. As your business grows and complications increase, you can retain us to support you. While you may hire your own financial controller, we would continue to handle all processes. In this way, we can support your business right from the start through the growth phase, for as long as you require.
We could also help you set up your own F&A team by helping you hire the right people and designing the necessary systems for you.
If you are an overseas business but want to manage your accounting and tax activities from India, we can assist you with that.
Our single point of contact will help simplify managing your company’s support functions by coordinating with the relevant teams at SKP. We aim to facilitate the smooth running of your business with improved efficiency by performing these routine functions for you in a cost-effective manner.

SKP provides effective and efficient management of accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll and other business transactions. We not only process these transactions using best practices but take complete ownership, thus, reducing processing costs and saving time. Companies get timely and accurate reports without needing to hire or retain process staff.
We offer dependable accounts payable solutions from invoice processing to payment disbursement. This not only helps clients cut costs but also allows for higher efficiency and centralised control of payables across the company. A well-managed payables function can result in a significant competitive advantage as it positively impacts vendor relations, cash management, internal control and management reporting.
Our accounts receivable processing or credit control services diligently keep track of cash flows. Our services include cheque management, receipt accounting, customer claim processing, customer account reconciliation and order release. We make sure that the highest level of efficiency is maintained, avoiding discrepancies at the time of reconciliation of accounts.
We ensure that employees are reimbursed for expenses incurred during the course of their work within the set time period. In doing so, we not only ensure employee satisfaction but also help mitigate any potential compliance risks by keeping track of various tax laws.
General Ledger Management
General Ledger management is one of the most important aspects of your F&A operations. While many activities are strategic, independent items that can be handled by us include:
Reporting and Analytics
We help design, build and implement your reporting framework in line with your business goals. On generating the reports, we also help interpret the results, providing you with insightful and actionable information that will help you manage your operations better.
In today’s fast-moving and competitive business environment, timely signing of contracts has become a critical aspect of an organisation’s business cycle. The involvement of various stakeholders – commercial teams, legal teams and suppliers/customers – can lead to communication gaps resulting in delays or loss of visibility. Outsourcing contract management as a managed service or staff augmentation service can radically improve the efficiency of this process and reduce organisational costs.
We have extensive experience across various contracts including commercial, technology transfer and shareholder agreements/joint venture agreements. We approach all process driven assignments keeping in mind the science that governs them, the purpose they serve and the ways in which the process could be improved to make them better.
Meeting compliance obligations for foreign countries is the biggest challenge for global employers.
It is essential to have a sustainable framework to manage global payroll processes for employees travelling to foreign locations on short-term assignments. Often, incorrect planning and analysis lead to cost leakages due to double taxation.
