Direct Tax (D.T.) is a very lengthy subject. Under D.T., you will have to understand the laws and procedures under Income-tax Act, 1961. This act has 298 sections and 14 schedules. They cover many areas such as the tax rates applicable (for individuals, companies other associations of persons), income earned by all three categories, planning tax, detecting tax avoidance and evasion, settlement of tax cases in case of non-compliance, etc. As D.T. is a major source of revenue for the government, it becomes very important for you as C.A. to be familiar with all the nuances of the law.
Compared with the Intermediate level, you will need to understand the provisions of this law in much greater depth.
The second part of the paper deals with the tax provisions related to International taxation (IT) or cross-border transactions. It is not enough to just have knowledge on tax provisions applicable to Indian citizens. It is equally important to know the tax provisions applicable to non-residents and companies that deal with import/export, banking companies, multinational companies and cross-border transactions.

So, the faculty at LearnCab, help you to understand these provisions with greater ease. This is because they divide the sections of the IT Act into conceptual groups so that you can understand provisions/sections of the IT Act in relation to a particular concept.

As of July 1st, 2017, Indirect Taxes like Excise Tax, Service Tax, Central Sales Tax and State-Level Tax, etc. all are subsumed under a single tax known as GST. This has become a paradigm shift in the Indirect Tax landscape of India. This has opened up a lot of opportunities for CAs. As a CA, you can undertake impact analysis of GST for various industries. Not only that, you may also explore the area of audit of financial statements under GST.
You can seize opportunities at a global level as well. This is because GST is one of the most widely implemented taxes worldwide. As such, you could easily decode tax laws of other countries and provide advisory services there.
The main challenge facing students is that this topic is new as compared to other subjects in CA Final. Because GST is a relatively new law, specific provisions/legislations are being updated constantly to address unforeseen difficulties in implementation. ICAI wants you stay up to date with your knowledge, and so they change the syllabus as and when such legislation becomes effective.
