It also provides consultancy with regard to DGFT matters including assistance in obtaining benefits under the Foreign Trade Policy.
Sensing the gap in the market, between multinational foreign players with brand identities and the small and medium level Indian CA firms that were stereotyped for their quality standards, the idea of setting up an Indian Consultancy Brand was crystallised by the founders Mr. Anmol Wadhwa and Mr. Kush Chitkara. The objective was to break such stereotype and to provide the highest level of quality services to its clients for reasonable price as compared to the multinational foreign brands, and this is how RAH was born!
The firm caters to industries like Oil & Gas, Electronics, Banking and Finance, FMCG, Aviation, Auto, Hotel, etc. Some of its esteemed clients include Okaya Power Group, SAMHI Hotels Limited, Microtek Inverters, Cremica Foods Industries, Sardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAM), Toshiba Group, Hitachi Metals, Reckitt Benckiser, Marriott Group Hotels, Hyatt Group Hotels, UNIQLO India, Duraton Cement, TRB Group, Spicejet Airlines, Orient Electric, Geometry Encompass (WPP Group), Larsen and Toubro and many others.
WHAT SETS THEM APART
RAH Consultancy has always prioritised the quality of their services, and strives to build and maintain the same. Accordingly, the firm strictly follows the motto of ‘Client First’ and the members of RAH live by the said motto to the last word.
“Our work pleases eyes, impresses brains and touches hearts. We are available for our clients 24X7 and our forte is that we get things done. At RAH, we don’t miss deadlines and we get projects delivered.”
One of the major USPs is the work culture that the founders have built and which they instil in their employees. This culture really is the reason why RAH as a team puts inso much hard work and always goes an extra mile for its clients. “It requires a very disciplined and ambitious mindset to imbibe the culture we are creating and frankly it is not everyone’s cup of tea! That is the reason we don’t hire so easily. We indeed are a family of crazy bad-ass professionals!”
THE TEAM AT RAH
RAH has been founded by Mr. Anmol Wadhwa and Mr. Kush Chitkara in the year 2016. Often referred as ‘Kids’ due to their age, both of them have been able to meet and exceed client expectations. Mentioning one of such incident, the founders said:
We have a very major multi-national Japanese client whom we were catering since 4 years. During this time, we have handled tax compliances for such client, including numerous successful instances of tax litigations and refund matters. By reason of the same, RAH has made a strong name in the eyes of the upper management of such client.
However, as a matter of chance, we never met the Managing Director of the Company, until recently, where he was shocked and could not digest the fact that we were actually the founders of the firm that has been successfully handling such big assignments for them and he just kept repeating that these two are just fucking kids! Though once he could get his head around such fact…he had nothing but appreciation for us and RAH!
Anmol Wadhwa, (Co-Founder) is a Chartered Accountant, and a Professional level candidate in the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (‘ICSI’), India. As one of the leaders in the firm, he brings with him over 10 years of experience in the Financial Services Industry across different verticals like Finance, Accounts and Taxation, including over 2 years of experience at Ernst & Young LLP in indirect taxes profile. He is also the writer, composer and singer of the famous CA Anthem “Ek Junoon Tha”
Kush Chitkara, (Co-Founder) is also a Chartered Accountant and has qualified with an All India Rank of 42. He brings with him over 9 years of experience in Auditing and Indirect Taxation, has worked in Deloitte for an year in Audit profile and in Ernst & Young LLP in indirect taxes profile for 4 years. He has extensive experience and core specialisation in the field of Indirect Taxation. The two of them together have built a team through a slow and dedicated process to give their bootstrap business a fighting chance in the industry. “
“We wanted to incur salary costs as per our revenue inflows, and we knew that especially in a services centric business, it is very important to have the right set of people with aligned mindset and dedication.”
Accordingly, slowly and steadily they have been building their professional family and making sure that they trudge the path to success with the whole RAH family. The Partners believe that working at RAH requires commitment and dedication, and is not everyone’s cup of tea, as the firm’s USP is an exceptional level of services to the clients. It is difficult to find the candidates with such a mindset, and they look for people who are ambitious and have a zeal to learn and win in life.
“Our people have the ability to imagine, plan for and help our clients and one another to achieve the best results. And this is because we see problems as opportunities. our experienced resources including highly trained personnel with specialised service capabilities in diverse fields and covering a wide spectrum of activities.”
The firm recruits, trains, motivates and retains highly capable and sharpest talents, who bring quality in their work and deliver the best solutions. The leadership team nurtures its people and turns them into assets. They regularly conduct Continuous Learning Programs (‘CLPs’) for the employees. These people are the brightest minds in industry and they blend together to bring about the stupendous power of teamwork.
The staff is motivated by the challenging work, as only a handful of the consulting firms are handling such a diverse level of work for such big clients in India. Also, they have a policy of work hard and party harder! Taking out the team for offsites and fun trips is a regular exercise at RAH, which ensures that they start again with greater motivation, strength and zeal.
ACHIEVEMENTS IN THE FIELD
Despite being a new entrant in the market, RAH India has acquired and handled GST implementation for major clients, in competition with big consulting firms in India. The list of clients primarily includes multi-national companies and major known names across various industries.
RAH has also become the top-most tax consultant in India for the Hospitality Industry and is currently providing various services like Proprietary Audits and Tax Advisory, Compliances & Litigation Services (GST, Income-Tax, Professional Tax, EPF-ESIC, VAT, DGFT Matters, etc.) to more than 45 Hotel Properties across India, which are operating under major brand names like Marriott, Hyatt and the like. For its swift rise towards success, RAH Consultancy Services was awarded as the Brand of the Year 2020 by The CEO Story magazine.
When we started off in 2016, we had promising jobs in the so-called best fields and organisations with handsome salaries. We had EMIs running and were living very comfortable lives. Our parents were happy and so were our relatives. But we saw what we were doing was, in a sense, limited. We have always believed and experienced that all the success happens outside of your comfort zone. So don’t limit yourself, step out of your comfort zone and get what you want!
