YourStory Workshop - Taxation for Startups


Planning a startup? If you don’t think about taxes until your company starts earning revenue, you’ve waited too long. Knowledge of taxes is necessary for any growing startup.

To clear all the myths on taxation for startups, YourStory in association with Taxmantra brings ‘Taxation for Startups’. The workshop is designed to provide startups with a comprehensive exposure to all aspects of taxation.

The workshop will be categorized into two sections:

1. Starting up Business: The main area of discussion in this session will be the various entities of taxation and how you should choose the entity which best suits your business.We will also focus on the tax implications and benefits on formation of a Company, LLP or Partnership Firm. We will highlight various documents which you must obtain while getting your entity registered as well as other local registration required for your business to operate.

2. Managing the business: In this session we will touch upon the various regulatory compliances which need to be taken care of for the smooth functioning of the business. The important compliances which the discussion will focus, include Accounting, Income Tax Compliance, ROC Compliance, Service Tax Compliance, TDS Compliance, etc. The motive of this discussion is to educate people on the compliances and its importance for future growth of the business.

YourStory continues to be on a mission to add value to Indian entrepreneurs as they build their businesses. One of the key aspects of scaling up a venture is dealing with finances. With the entrepreneurship eco-system being relatively nascent in the country, taxation continues to be a black box for most entrepreneurs in India. While there are both online resources as well as one-off panel discussions in conferences, there is no single comprehensive program that takes entrepreneurs through a deep dive into all aspects of taxation. This workshop is specifically designed to be simple, intuitive and easy to understand.

Hurry! Book your seats now for the Taxation for Startups Workshop scheduled to be held on Friday, February 28, 2014 from 4pm to 7pm!
