GST Implementation Masterclass (Chennai)

GST in India is a reality now. Many trade pundits are predicting its arrival in the Indian Business Geography from April 2017. The Rajya Sabha unanimously passed the 122nd Constitutional Amendments Bill on 3rd Aug 2016. Earlier, the finance ministry has already unveiled the Model GST Law after the approval of the empowered committee and also released a FAQs for business processes for returns and registrations. GST (Goods & Service Tax) is going to subsume most of the Indirect Taxes of our country such as Excise & Customs, Service Tax, VAT & CST, Entry Tax, etc and would bring in significant amount of change in way of doing business. 

The Draft GST Law is a model, which the Central Government and each of the State Governments would use to draft their respective Central and State GST Acts. Further, a Draft of the Integrated GST (IGST) Act, 2016, which will govern levy of GST on inter-State supplies by the Central Government, is also issued. The Draft Model GST Law provides an insight on the governing provisions regarding levy and collection of GST, which consists of 162 clauses divided into 25 Chapters along with 4 schedules and Rules as to Valuation under GST. Further, the Draft Integrated (IGST) GST Act, 2016 is also issued, which consists of 33 clauses divided into 11 Chapters.


Gearing up for changes in process, training of personal and redesigning the IT systems for being GST compliant is the need of the hour. GST implementation in India will require a great level of coordination from all corners of business. It will also require a lot of change in the supply chain management, costing analysis, invoicing methodology as well as your accounting software & documentation.
