M/s Pricol Ltd has been associated with M/s Swamy Associates since they set up operations in Coimbatore in 2003 to handle all our Custom duty related issues. They came in at a time when we were facing a lot of problems stemming from lack of proper guidance. They have handled several Customs related issues very successfully and have been able to get us favourable orders. We consult them on routine matters from time to time. At this juncture in time, we can confidently say that the Indirect taxation area in our organisation is functioning quite seamlessly with their timely support and guidance. Their support to hand hold the transition into the GST regime is commendable.

The widely acclaimed monthly newsletter of Swamy Associates “sa times” was in a hiatus for sometime for various reasons. And its next incarnation is before you as “Tax watch” by swamy associates. The uniqueness of this communique is that it has no fixed periodicity. Neither any fixed format. As and when there are any important developments in the field of indirect taxation this flier would reach you. A team of dedicated professionals would constantly be on their toes to keep you updated.
But for those who aren’t direct participants in the sector, the book is an educative read on how taxes that a make a straight-forward start in India, over time, evolve into labyrinthine levies that mystify taxpayers and require the combined efforts of legions of chartered accountants, tax practitioners and tribunals to interpret them.
