Indirect taxes pervade every area of a company’s business. Their impact on material and product costs, cash flow, profitability and, ultimately, on shareholder value is an important element to stay ahead in competition.
Our team comprises over 200 indirect tax professionals across India. We provide comprehensive advice and assistance on various indirect taxes such as Customs duties, central excise, service tax and VAT (including works contract taxes and lease taxes). We also offer expert advice on all aspects of the foreign trade policy, free trade agreements, cross-border supply chains and anti-dumping duties. We provide litigation support before adjudication and appellate authorities up to the Tribunal level and brief counsels for matters beyond the Tribunal.
We have worked closely with state governments in the implementation of VAT in 2005. On the run-up to the GST, we are working closely with the state and central governments to ensure that India has a business-friendly GST in place. We carry out impact assessment studies of the GST on businesses and advise companies on the resultant changes in business models, supply chains, pricing and other optimisation opportunities.
