Withholding Tax Masterclass
10th June 2016 in Mumbai at Hotel Novotel

Workshop Timing: 09:30 AM - 05:30 PM

Several corporate houses in India (MNCs as well as Indian Groups) make large payments to foreign entities. Determining TDS (also known as withholding tax or WHT) implications on these payments is critical, before making remittance outside India. The Income tax department has put a lot of energy in streamlining and ensuring compliance of withholding tax provisions as a result corporates/assesses keep on receiving the default notices on regular intervals. Hence, Indian Businesses (domestic as well MNCs) are required have a greater focus on compliance and managing the internal process is becoming critical.

CorpKonnect’s full day Withholding Tax Masterclass will enable corporate executives and practicing professionals to update their knowledge not only to follow them but also to avoid litigation and provide quality services to their client. This will also enable them to focus on growth of their business rather than indulging into avoidable complications.
