All India Taxes is a comprehensive guide about local and central taxes applicable in India. It covers Income Tax, Excise, Service Tax, VAT, GST and all other taxes levied by Government.

The latest edition of this book includes a new chapter on ‘Start-up India’ scheme as launched by the Indian Government in 2016 listing out the various benefits available for the Start-ups in India. Further, there are additional topics in relation to Foreign Trade Policy 2015-20 which is a part of ‘Customs Act’ in this book which lists down the various benefits available for exporters and importers of India.

The book aims to give a complete and thorough insight into the taxation system in India, relevant policies and guidelines and enables entrepreneurs and businesses to incorporate them into their regular business activities. Seeing the booming growth of entrepreneurship and small business culture in India, Mr. Alok Kumar Agarwal, himself an entrepreneur saw the gap for such a book. Since the topic of taxation is often confusing to new entrants having to deal with corporate finance and government regulations, this book was designed to serve as an easy to understand guide for new business owners and be a quick reference for industry experts at the same time. The book has also proven to be an extremely useful guide for foreign corporations and multinationals setting up business in India.

The idea behind this book is to provide relevant and much-needed information disseminated in a manner that can easily be comprehended by laymen. It has been written in a style that provides an easy understanding of complex tax structures and other related technicalities and this has been the primary reason behind the enormous success of this book.
