The saying “Change is constant“ is very much true in indirect taxes – more so in Excise Duty. Not a year passes without changes in Excise law. Strangely the changes may sometimes lead to metamorphosis in law.

The executives engaged in tax planning find it difficult to cope with the frequent radical changes in law thanks to the day to day on the job pressure. Excise law involves a wide range of areas. To say a few – Assessable Value, Tariff Rate, Exemption, Remission, Recovery, Refund, Rebate, etc. There may be no occasion to deal with some areas. Occurrence of some may be occasional. Day in and day out judicial pronouncements are coming out with interpretation of the various provisions contained in Excise law. It is very difficult for the executives to keep track of them. On top of all these, instances are not rare wherein wrong objections are raised by assessment officers / audit officers. Reason for the wrong query may be either on account inadequacy of knowledge or wrong understanding of law or even out of fear of punishment for possible error in assessment of duty. The executives should therefore be adequately equipped to meet such departmental queries with convincing replies. Surprisingly, this exercise may sometimes even lead to the extent of educating the departmental officers.

A day of complete soaking in excise law will go a long way in increasing the acumen of the executives and honing their skills.
