CEO SPEAK

I am delighted to welcome you to the revamped website of Dhruva Advisors.

As clichéd as it may sound, the world of tax is truly in a state of flux today. Indeed, it has been this way for sometime now. There is an increased convergence through multilateral initiatives like BEPS, while at the same time, there is a resurgence of nationalism that threatens the existing world order. In this evolving world, tax has become a complex and multi-faceted topic, which is affected by several factors such as global and domestic politics, morality as well as the emergence of new stakeholders in the form of media and civil society.

These trends, though global, have a far-reaching impact on India too. We are witnessing significant changes on the tax front with multiple and often radical initiatives aimed at tax simplification, administrative reform and countering tax evasion and avoidance. This adds to the complexity in an environment that was already perceived as being challenging, uncertain and litigation prone.

When we started Dhruva in November 2014, we wanted to build something unique – a firm that would be the natural choice for clients facing complex tax issues in such an environment.

In a relatively short span of time, our cutting-edge technical expertise, innovativeness, implementation capabilities and our proficiency in dispute resolution have helped us gain recognition as one of India's top tax firms. This is reflected in our client roster which comprises of some of the largest global and Indian corporations and high net worth individuals. Along the way, we grew in size and also expanded our geographical footprint across India and Singapore. We, however, remain a close-knit partnership that collaborates seamlessly on complex and multi-faceted mandates.

To learn more about us, please go through the information on the website or contact any of our partners. We very much appreciate your interest in Dhruva and look forward to partnering with you.

With best wishes,

Dinesh Kanabar
