The Taxation paper by CA Raj K Agrawal aims to build a familiarity with the laws related to direct and indirect taxes. The first part of the paper delves into the Income Tax Act, 1961- the important definitions, tax rates, computation of income under different heads, clubbing of income, aggregation of income, the various deductions from gross total income, computation of total income and tax liability, provisions for filing return of income and self-assessment, among others.
The second section deals with indirect taxes. It explicitly deals with the Goods and Services Tax (GST) laws- its major provisions, the levy and collection of CGST and IGST, registration, returns, etc. Thus, this paper will help CA Intermediate students to make tax-related computations and accurately address the application-oriented issues.
