International Taxation (including NRI taxation, DTAA, transfer pricing, and taxation in foreign countries)

With rapid globalisation and cross-border transactions, transfer pricing and double taxation avoidance agreements (DTAA) have come in to sharp focus. Revenue authorities across the globe are keen to ensure that their respective countries are not deprived of their legitimate share of taxes on these cross-border transactions.

In international tax consultancy business, practicing CAs provide guidance and consultancy services related to:
- Taxation of non-resident Indians in accordance with clause (6) of section 6 of the Income Tax Act, 1961
- Companies operating in multiple countries which are subject to intense reviews and scrutiny of transactions with their related parties
- Members with deep knowledge and understanding of the DTAA, transfer pricing regulations can play a key role in an advisory capacity and assist these companies in preparation of transfer pricing reports and other aspects of international taxation

Hence, tax consultants are required to understand the external environment in which the entity operates, as well as company’s own internal structure. They help organisations and individuals effectively communicate to the authorities the justifications relevant for the posture adopted by them in various taxable jurisdictions.
