VAT / Sales tax in India is levied at a State level i.e. different law in each State. It is very difficult for a business man to absorb and keep track of all statutes applicable under different States. Further, continuous amendments in the State laws make it very difficult for multi locational companies to comply within time bound manner.
We have dedicated team of VAT experts in house and tie ups with local VAT consultants to provide one stop solutions to comply with VAT law across the Country. It obviates the need to appoint consultant separately for each State, thereby, allowing clients to focus on their business as against VAT matters. Incidentally, this leads to reducing communication gaps, saving time & cost with optimum productivity.
