ABSTRACT

 

Although companies conducting e-commerce are subject to same laws and taxes as other companies, those which engage in e-commerce face a large number of laws and taxes sooner than the traditional business usually face. Global nature of e-commerce poses challenges to business in terms of differences in language culture, laws and infrastructure. Numerous government organs having jurisdiction and taxing power make it necessary for e-commerce ventures to understand potential liabilities while doing business online. This paper discusses the issues arising out of variation in languages, culture, tax structure and legal and technological infrastructure. Moreover, the aforementioned issues are addressed in Indian perspective.

 

Keywords : e-Commerce, Legal issues, Technological infrastructure, Indian perspective, Commercial environment.
