Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) US subsidiary’s revenue was reduced by 93 per cent last financial year, demonstrating a drastic shift in revenue booking through the American unit, according to details shared in the company’s annual report. 

Analysts are of the opinion that such a fall in its US unit’s revenue is a successful tax management initiative in terms of reducing total tax outgo in the largest market.
