If you’re a global business juggling complex and diverse tax rules of multiple markets, it can be hard to stay on top of what can seem like ever-changing regulations. RSM can help solve your tax challenges, offering in-depth, up-to-date knowledge of the relevant local rules and regulations.

Broadly, our domestic service areas in tax cover:
- Direct tax
- Indirect tax
- Transfer pricing
Indian tax law is well structured, wherein the power to levy taxes is clearly demarcated by the constitution between the central government, the state governments and local bodies. Taxes in India can broadly be classified into direct tax and indirect tax. Some of the major taxes levied by the central government are classified below:
- Direct tax:
- Income tax
- Wealth tax
- Indirect tax:
- Customs duties
- Central excise
- Service tax
Since July 2017, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) has made the taxation system more dynamic in terms of effective administration, creating efficient tax collection and reducing the cascading effect of taxes in India.
