Helping with tax challenges, wherever you are in the world.

We offer in-depth, up-to-date knowledge of the relevant local rules and regulations.

The Indian tax system is well structured, wherein the power to levy taxes are clearly demarcated by the constitution between the Central Government, the State Governments and local bodies. The taxes in India can broadly be classified into Direct tax and Indirect tax. Some of the major taxes levied by the Central Government are as classified below:

  • Direct tax: 
    • Income tax
    • Wealth tax
  •  Indirect tax:
    • Customs duties
    • Central excise
    • Service tax


Also, in order to make the Indian taxation system more dynamic in terms of effective administration, efficient tax collection and to reduce the cascading effect of taxes, it is proposed to introduce the Goods and Services Tax (GST). This will be implemented in the near future and would be a comprehensive tax on the supply of goods and services.

We provide practical, commercially-focused and socially responsible solutions for multi-national companies, Indian companies, expatriates, non-Resident and resident Indians, etc. In this endeavour, we are immensely helped by our extensive knowledge of taxation practices and procedures followed worldwide and our regular interaction with the concerned tax authorities.

We are a leading service provider in matters of direct and indirect tax covering the whole gamut of Indian and international tax, transfer pricing regulations, service tax regulations, value added tax regulations, central excise regulations, GST transition etc.  We can also assist you with specialized services in areas of setting up of business in India and overseas, corporate business structuring, transaction advisory etc.
