Tax Services – Domestic and International

Helping with tax challenges, wherever you are in the world. 

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. Through collaboration with our tax professionals across all relevant jurisdictions, we are able to provide you with seamless advisory and compliance solutions for taxes in India and international tax law.

Broadly, our domestic service areas in tax cover:

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.

We provide practical, commercially focused and socially responsible solutions for both multi-national and Indian companies, as well as expatriates and non-resident and resident Indians. Our extensive knowledge of taxation practices and detailed understanding of both international tax law and Indian tax law leaves us expertly positioned to help your business. Our procedures follow globally regarded best practice, and our regular interaction with international tax authorities ensures we maintain this at all times.
