Direct taxes

Indian tax legislative and judicial environment is constantly evolving, along with globalization, economic shifts, and operational adjustments. Businesses are faced with a tax regime with greater complexities and challenges, nonetheless moving towards a globally cohesive tax world. Now, more than ever, businesses must have an ongoing system for adapting to and staying on top of these complex changes.

Some of the recent developments in Indian taxation regime include alignment with proposals under the Base Erosion & Profit Shifting (BEPS) Project, introduction of the General Anti-Avoidance Rules (GAAR), code for taxing gains on indirect transfers, re-negotiation of tax treaties, Income Computation & Disclosure Standards (ICDS), change in tax residency conditions by introducing the Place of Effective Management (PoEM) concept, etc. to name a few.

Further, the Indian government has gradually reduced corporate tax rates. The emphasis is now shifting towards enforcing compliance and expanding the tax base with e-governance and digitisation gaining importance. Taxation is also used as a tool to promote investments in identified industry sectors, thereby spurring overall economic growth.
