Automotive tax services

We have created a network of tax advisors who understand the complex realities of the international automotive marketplace. Our Automotive Tax service line covers the breadth of advisory and compliance services for both corporate and personal tax clients. 

Business Tax 
We provide clear and actionable corporate tax advice that complements and adds value to companies’ mainstream commercial operations throughout every stage of the tax life cycle: planning, provision, compliance and controversy. We also provide personal tax compliance and advisory services for senior executives.

Human Capital 
We offer tax advisory and compliance services to companies and their international or domestic assignees. These services include global mobility advisory, assignment administration, process risk assessments, business immigration and expatriate tax return processing. We also advise clients on performance and reward programs.

Goods and Services Tax
India’s biggest indirect tax reform in the form of Goods and Services Tax (GST) has completed more than nine months. A comprehensive dual GST was introduced in India from 1 July 2017. The idea of moving toward GST was first mooted by the then Union Finance Minister in his Budget for 2006-07. The talks of ushering in GST took concrete shape with the introduction of the Constitution (122nd Amendment) Bill, 2014. The Bill was passed by the Parliament on 8 August 2016.

Transaction Tax 
We focus on transaction support services as well as tax due diligence, including tax structuring advice.
