Goods and Services Tax and Custom Duty Law Firm

Goods and Services Tax and Custom Duty Law Firm

GST is a type of indirect tax (consumption tax) levied in India which is applicable on the supply of goods and services. This type of tax was introduced to avoid tax evasion by wholesalers, dealer and suppliers. For every value addition at each stage, a tax is to be deposited to the taxation authority and the same is collected by the consumers. From manufacturer to an ultimate consumer, at each stage there is a value addition and tax implication. There are different tax slabs and rates for each category of goods/services and stage of consumption

We have a robust GST practice including GST advisory, tax compliance reviews, contract reviews, due diligence, and restructuring of the supply chain following GST implementation.
