Direct Taxation

The Indian Direct Tax regime is both complex and dynamic. With the law constantly changing to reflect the current policy of the government and a tenacious tax department that tends to litigate most issues, handling tax functions in most companies can be challenging. The changing business environment with digitization becoming the cornerstone of companies, tax assessments, and compliances require constant review and support. 

The income tax team at the firm handles all aspects of tax requirements for companies. These include providing services relating to tax assessments, tax advisory, structuring and investment strategy, due diligence, and litigation. Our tax team advises taxpayers on issues relating to business restructuring, setting up new units, withholding taxes, royalty, and fees for technical services, transfer pricing, and contracting. In M&A transactions, our tax team has undertaken investment structuring, tax due diligence, and review.

In the area of litigation, the team represents clients before quasi-judicial authorities and tribunals. The firm’s approach has been to prepare the case from the first level of litigation to the higher courts to ensure a uniform strategy with relevant evidence to support the positions taken by the taxpayer. Our partners also appear before the authorities and courts. This has ensured proper representation and preparation of the case for our clients. In addition to regular litigation services, the firm also provides review and chamber support services for high stake matters offering independent review and inputs for strengthening the case. Handholding during investigations by tax authorities is one of the critical services offered by the firm.
