CA Se Door Raho -

CA Ko Nikal Do -

But this is how me as a CA as well as other CA/CS around me have added value to #Startups and #Angel #Investment
#SharkTankIndia #startupindia #SharkTank ( 1/n )

@namitathapar @amangupta0303 @Ashneer_Grover @peyushbansal @vineetasng
Angel Investors commit to invest in Startups without having any knowledge that there is a deemed "Angel tax" on premium paid on equity u/s 56(2)(viib)

I have saved 200 Cr+ on tax on such hasty decisions taken by #Investors by applying for #Angeltax exemption #startupindia
The Deal by #Sharks is followed by Term Sheet and Share Holders Agreement

As a CA/CS our role is to educate the #Startup #Founder about the clauses like Buy Back, Drag along , Anti-Dilution and Liquidation preference

A thread dedicated to Mr. Shripal Morakhia, the great organization built by him and importance of timing in success of an Organisation.

"IAS fraternity" does not understand what API access means. 😏 These kind of people make decisions.
When you don't understand the meaning of "public" but think public transport is their baap ka maal.😏 Taxpayers fund you. Public services should provide APIs so that entrepreneurs can build Apps. Much better than what overpaid "public servants" will build.
The only thing the bureaucracy is good at is CYA—cover your ass. This is why the country cannot move forward. To progress afsar-raj must be dismantled. @narendramodi

1/ Most people have been watching in shock as the story of dreaded #AngelTax reared it's disgusting head. Freezing the accounts of startup @Travelkhana and @babygogo_in has resulted in an uproar across India's startup community, calling for #ShutdownIndia
2/ Though the Central Board of Direct Taxation (CBDT) has released a circular claiming that the officer in charge of this particular case did everything by the book. Founder of @Travelkhana, @pushpinder has disputed the story, claiming the officer rushed the case through.
3/ Regardless whether the case was rushed through or not, is almost irrelevant because in any logical, normal universe, the case shouldn't exist at all. Period!
