With over 30,000 expatriates working in India, sorting out international taxation troubles has become a booming business, and you will be relieved to know that it’s been done a million times before. In fact, most leading tax advisories such as Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC), Ernst and Young (ENY) and KPMG have set up dedicated teams for just this. All are fluent English speakers.
- PWC’s team of professionals is called the International Assignment Solutions. They have an office at MG Road. [Phone: 25586362] http://www.pwc.in
- KPMG calls it the International Executive Services (IES) and are based in Vittal Mallya Road. [Phone: 22276000] http://www.in.kpmg.com
- Ernst and Young calls the service International Tax Services and they are at Vittal Mallya Road and at Banashankari [Phone: 40275000, 26714814] http://www.ey.com/
These teams are a part of the international network and have tax advisors who also handle personal income tax issues for Indian clients as well. Be sure to check first with your company, as they likely have an arrangement with a particular accounting firm, or can refer you to someone they recommend.
