Dharmesh Pandya leads KPMG’s India Tax Centre of Excellence

 In Uncategorized

KPMG LLP, the accounting, tax and advisory firm, has announced the formation of its U.S.-based India Tax Center of Excellence, which will assist and advise U.S. companies that currently have or are planning operations in India. The Center of Excellence will also provide tax services to India-based companies with investment interests in the United States.

KPMG also announced that it has hired Dharmesh Pandya to head the India Tax Centre of Excellence. Pandya, who will be based in KPMG’s New York City office, previously served in a similar capacity at another Big Four accounting firm. He will be charged with aiding multinational clients as they establish cross-border operations in collaboration with KPMG’s other International Tax Centres of Excellence. KPMG’s Centres of Excellence are distinctive in that the Centers work together to look at tax planning from a multiple country approach, in order to provide international companies with a more complete cross-border picture for tax planning purposes.

"As India, and in fact the entire Asia-Pacific region, continues to be one of the top areas for foreign investment and business expansion, it makes sense that KPMG opens an India Tax Center to help clients identify opportunities there," said Kevin Glenn, US Partner in Charge of KPMG’s International Corporate Tax Services practice. "Since this is new terrain for many of our clients, we expect great demand for the India Tax Centre’s ervices."

Pandya brings extensive tax, legislative and regulatory experience associated with doing business in India, as well as other Asian countries. He has advised multinationals on both US-outbound and inbound international tax issues, including treaties, subpart F, cross-border M&As, transfer pricing, foreign tax credits and e-commerce taxation. A frequent author on international tax subjects, Pandya is a graduate of Harvard Law School and the University of Bombay.

"Joining KPMG’s India Tax Centre provides me with an opportunity to work closely with international clients as they navigate a new business landscape in India," said Pandya. "At the same time, by being conveniently located in New York with the other Tax Centres, I can easily assist India-based businesses with their cross-border tax issues."

KPMG’s International Tax Centres of Excellence, a component of KPMG LLP’s International Corporate Tax Services practice, were formed in June 2000 and are a dedicated network of centres staffed by senior-level tax professionals with hands-on experience in local jurisdictions and an equally thorough understanding of the evolving international tax landscape.
