Tax Services

We provide comprehensive advisory, representation and compliance services for direct and indirect tax matters in India, for cross-border activities and global mobility needs

There are perceptions that India is a difficult place to do business. The reality often is that companies don’t plan and implement correctly and seek advice only ‘after the event’.

Proper attention to planning and structures initially, takes away the ‘difficulties’ and surprises; then its only detailed compliance, which too we support.
