Goods and Service Tax





GST (Goods and Services Tax) is the largest fiscal reform in the history of India, which sets to integrate all indirect taxes and transform India into a single market. GST will create a simplified and integrated system of indirect taxation. India seems to be on the brink of implementing the much awaited GST bill. Indian Government is rushing to meet the self imposed deadline of implementing GST by 1st July, 2017.

Therefore, the question of the hour, in such a busy time, should one wait or prepare oneself for the new GST regime?


 
Impact of GST on business
GST will integrate various taxes under one destination-based tax structure, which will majorly affect various aspects of business. As the GST scheme and its implications unravel, it is wise to take a practical approach and prepare for the design and application of GST. The inevitable taxation transition would require development of a strategy for effective promotion. It would also necessitate identifying and understanding various tax leverage, exemption, concessions and regulations for the benefit of your business firm.

In matters of sourcing, GST may open opportunities to consolidate suppliers/ vendors because of inter-state procurement. GST will alter the distribution arrangements of finished goods and services and it may no longer be suitable for the removal of the excise duty on manufacturing. Under GST regime, tax saving would demand the re-pricing of goods.

As GST would now be paid at the time of sale/supply, GST could possibly result in enhancement in cash flow and inventory costs. There needs to be a smooth migration from existing tax system to GST regime and the reviewing of supply chain reports before GST implementation is imperative.
