INCOME-TAX CONSULTANCY SERVICES


TIOL announces launching of "Income-tax Advisory Services" as a new vertical under its existing set up. This will be an online as well as offline services to be offered by experts having more than three decades of experience in tax administration.

With the implementation of policy of eliminating the contact between tax payers / representatives like advocate / CA / CS/ ITP and the tax authorities / Assessing officers, the queries of tax authorities have to be replied to ONLY by email. The written submissions would be the basis for acceptance or rejection of claims / contentions of the tax payers.

In this scenario submissions of the assessee have to be comprehensive covering factual aspects as well as legal contentions on the issues raised in the Notice.

Income Tax & Litigation go hand in hand! Litigation begins with the issuance of NOTICE prior to assessment proceedings. If the Reply to the Notice is deficient or lack in any aspect, additions to a tax payer's income or disallowance would become inevitable. This brings the Journey of Litigation to the Second Stage before the Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeal). From here it goes to the Tribunal, followed by the High Court and the Supreme Court of India.

In case of International Taxation or Transfer Pricing case, the journey remains the same except one or two stopovers such as the issue being referred to the TPO or the DRP before the Tribunal comes into the picture.
