The focus of tax assessments (audits) is gradually shifting from micro issues (such as, procedural disallowances) to issue based and concept based reviews. Given the legal labyrinth that taxpayers often face, a judicious cost-benefit analysis is imperative in deciding which issues are worthwhile to litigate and on which issues it is more viable to concede. We, with our experience and in-depth knowledge help in making this decision. Complicated direct tax litigation at all levels of the Income tax Authorities is our forte.
In the arena of Cross Border Taxation, the Indian authorities have been late entrant. The last few years have seen an extremely aggressive revenue approach focusing on issues related to permanent establishments, transfer pricing, round tripping. etc.. Given the legal labyrinth that taxpayers often face, including those that are operating multiple jurisdictions it is imperative to engage in complicated litigation at all levels of the Income tax Authorities.
