KPMG aids Diageo in Indian whisky battle

Spirit giant Diago hires KPMG in major tax battle with Indian government

Global spirits giant
Diageo,
maker of Johnny Walker, has hired KPMG as it prepares for a major tax battle
with the Indian government.

A team from KPMG’s Australia office will fly to India this week to begin work
on a detailed case against a new whisky tax. The consultants will have the
backing of the Scotch Whisky Association and Discus, the US spirits trade body.

Diageo is fighting the legality of a 200% tax on Scotch imposed in India’s
largest city of Mumbai, despite a ruling by the World Trade Organisation and a
decision by the Indian state government of Maharashtra to slash import duty.
