The spike in investment in non conventional start ups, leap growth in traditional businesses and entry of various multinational companies in India has led to the increased tax compliance among companies across the globe. As the companies are expanding their business they are also facing various tax risks and disputes associated with the uncertain and frequent changes in tax laws. Besides the massive growth of the Small and Medium Enterprises (“SME”) sector in the country, there has been an unprecedented surge in tax litigation. Though the big corporations can afford to have the counsel of big firms to advise it has been noticed that they refrain from offering litigation support. While a large chunk of tax payers and SME’s are in need of quality tax advice and litigation support but due to the cost factor are deprived of these services. On the other hand, small firms give personalised services but they are generally lacking in experience in dealing with complex tax advisory and not deal in big ticket tax litigation. It is this gap which inspired Gagan Kumar to leverage his huge experience in the taxation space by starting a legal service firm of his own and offer an appropriate strategy in handling tax litigation matters effectively and efficiently especially for the SMEs which are on the cusp of getting into big league. Thus, in 2011, after working with firms like KPMG and Amarchand Mangaldas, he conceptualised and set up Krishnomics Legal (“Krishnomics”).
