TIPS:

  • This subject is semi-practicle and although theory accounts for only 25% of your paper, it is important.
  • Usually faculty provide you with a question bank for the theory, make sure you do only those questions as all the importance in this subject goes to the sums.
  • For direct taxation as well as indirect taxation practice is extremely important.
  • New formats and new concepts are difficult to grasp all at once, but taxation is one subject that will come in use throughout your life so make sure that you study this subject well.
  • Understanding the concepts is very important as this understanding will be the basis for solving your sums and attempting your theory.
  • A very interesting subject, taxation has a completely different outlook towards its direct and indirect part so dont get confused once you learn both.
