    Reduced Tax Liability

    Tax planning helps minimize your tax liability by utilizing available exemptions, deductions, and credits. This allows you to keep more of your hard-earned money. Several investment schemes under the act also help to lower the tax burden.

    Proper tax planning ensures that you stay within the legal framework. It helps you take advantage of legitimate tax-saving avenues while avoiding illegal practices that could lead to penalties and legal issues.

    Optimized Financial Strategy

    By incorporating tax planning into your overall financial strategy, you can make informed decisions that align with your goals. It ensures that your financial plan is tax-efficient and helps you achieve your objectives effectively.

    Peace of Mind

    who shall file

    Who has to file Business Returns

    Whether your business is in its early stages or well-established, we provide the support needed to ensure compliance with deadlines and regulations.

    Proprietorship Firm

    In India, proprietorship firms are required to file income tax returns annually. Since the Proprietor (business owner) and the Proprietorship Firm are one and the same, the income tax return filing process for a proprietorship firm is similar to the procedure for individual income tax returns. The income tax slab rates for Proprietorship Firm are also same as the tax rates for Individual.

    Private Limited Company

    All Private Limited companies, whether domestic or foreign must file income tax returns annually. Even dormant companies without transactions must comply. Tax Audit by a Chartered Accountant is mandatory each year for all companies, regardless of turnover or profit/loss. Filing returns is a mandatory requirement under the Income Tax Act.

    Partnership Firms

    All partnership firms, regardless of income, must file annual tax returns. Operating as separate legal entities, they are taxed at 30% of total income. A 12% surcharge is applicable when income exceeds Rs.1 crore. Even with no business activity, filing a NIL return is mandatory. This process aligns with the Income Tax Act's regulations.


    LLPs are regarded as separate legal entities. Because of this they must file income tax returns annually, regardless of income or loss. Taxation for LLPs is separate from the partners and aligns with rates applicable to Indian companies. LLPs face a 30% income tax rate on total income, with a 12% surcharge for income exceeding Rs.1 crore. Even with no business activity, LLPs must file a NIL income tax return before the due date.

    Income Tax Assessment and Notices

    Tax Planning is the process of organizing one’s finances in a manner that reduces tax liabilities within the legal framework. It involves making strategic decisions regarding investments, expenses, and other financial activities to minimize the tax burden.

    Tax Planning should ideally be an ongoing process that starts at the beginning of the financial year. However, it can also be initiated at any time to take advantage of tax-saving opportunities before the end of the financial year.

    • Investing in tax-saving instruments such as Public Provident Fund (PPF), Employee Provident Fund (EPF), Equity Linked Savings Schemes (ELSS), etc.
    • Claiming deductions under various sections of the Income Tax Act for expenses such as house rent, medical insurance premiums, education loans, etc.

    • Planning for long-term capital gains tax by holding investments for the required duration.

    Determining the most effective Tax Planning strategies requires a thorough analysis of your financial situation, income sources, investment goals, and tax-saving options available. Consulting with a tax advisor or financial planner can help you identify suitable strategies tailored to your specific needs.

    Improper Tax Planning, such as engaging in tax evasion or aggressive tax avoidance schemes, can lead to severe penalties, fines, and legal consequences. It can also damage your reputation and financial stability. It’s crucial to engage in ethical and legal Tax Planning practices to avoid such risks.
