In light of the changes in economic scenarios across the globe, the business have been changing the manner in which it operates, and there have been lot of chop and churn and acquisitions of the entities for purposes of aligning of the businesses. Also, there have been lot of family businesses which have gone for IPOs and fund raising activities and for that purpose there is need to re-align the structures and also in-line the family succession plan and how to hold their investments.

However, time and again there have been changes in Income Tax Act, like revamping the taxation regime on reconstitution of partnership, not allowing depreciation on goodwill etc. and similarly the divergent judicial precedents like in the case of Celerity, Gabs, Ozone etc. which keeps the controversies in relation to business restructuring ‘alive and kicking’. To add fuel to the fire you have Sections like 56(2) (x) and GAAR which adds a level of difficulty and uncertainty to any business restructuring.

This hybrid seminar will be in a Panel Discussion format where these topics will be discussed in detail by the Experts. It will be useful for Tax Managers, Tax Heads, CFOs, Tax Consultants, Tax Practitioners and others keen to keep abreast with the rapid changes in Business Restructuring.

In view of the importance of the topic and its overall impact on taxpayers, we hope you would surely like to attend this seminar and get more clarifications on tax issues relating to business restructuring.
