 According to Economic Outlook 2011-12, the Government of India pegged India's GDP growth at 8.2%, and the economy continues to grow steadily despite high inflation and a drop in industrial growth. During this time there have been a number of developments in tax litigation that have added clarity on some outstanding issues, while raising ambiguity on others.

Now the business world waits in anticipation of pending key tax policy reforms such as the Direct Tax Code (DTC) and a Goods & Services Tax (GST). On March 16, the Government of India will release announcements regarding direct and indirect tax in its Union Budget 2012-13.

This live webinar will:

  • Discuss Direct Tax announcement (with its significant impact on corporate and international tax)
  • Analyze Indirect Tax announcement
  • Detail significant sectoral analysis

This webinar will provide a conceptual understanding and practical application of the new budget. Attendees will:

  • Understand the impact of Union Budget 2012 on their business
  • Understand and recognize key business challenges that any announcement may carry
