We specialise in Corporate Tax, International Tax, Dispute Resolution and Transfer Pricing. We grow with businesses and keep pace with evolving complexities in India’s dynamic Tax environment and have the capabilities to anticipate the contours of future developments in policy, administration and jurisprudence.

As a trusted tax advisor to leading industrial groups in India and overseas for over six decades, our Tax team helps organisations formulate effective strategies to optimise taxes, deal with complex tax issues, effectively represent before the Tax Authorities and the Income-Tax Tribunals, handle compliance and enhance the overall strength of the tax function. With a team of more than 50 professionals, our multi-disciplinary Tax Team comprises dedicated tax professionals with in-depth technical knowledge and practical experience. For us, every customer is a valued client.

With a rise in cross-border transactions and stringent norms imposed by governments across the globe, Transfer Pricing has become one of the biggest Tax risks for Multi-national Groups and the most significant variable in arriving at the effective tax rate, which depends on a variety of factors.

We also assist clients in structuring a wide array of transactions, from investment structuring to due diligence and corporate acquisitions to disposals. Our rich experience in the history and progress of the Indian Tax law and Administration coupled with our professional expertise for representing matters before the Tax Authorities and Tax Tribunals, which is a distinct advantage we have as an accounting firm, helps us advise to build stable and sustainable tax strategies combing the technical, practical and commercial aspects.

We have a robust Tax Transaction Advisory team. Every deal has a distinct profile. So our team focusses on providing tailor-made solutions. The restructuring strategies we advise on optimise risks in a holistic manner throughout the transaction life cycle, from initial due diligence to post-deal implementation.
