Corporate Tax laws have been volatile and dynamic in the past decade. Today, it is imperative to strategise business, bearing in mind the fundamentals of Indian tax laws rather than its provisions. The new Direct Taxes Code will be operational from April 2012. New statutes often promise to be simpler and less burdensome. Yet, taxes are an item of dynamic cost or outgo to the assessee and tax payers strive to glean tax saving opportunities. Hence assessees, resident and non-resident have to plan their activities in a prudent manner, which necessitates professional assistance.
Such assistance may encompass domestic and international income-tax matters, inbound investment structuring, tax efficient mergers and acquisitions compliant with Indian corporate and tax laws, expatriate taxation and transfer pricing.
