GST Migration - An Implementation Perspective Masterclass (Gurgaon)

GST in India is all set to come in in July 2017. The GST Council has finalised a four-tier GST tax structure of 5 per cent, 12 per cent, 18 per cent and 28 per cent. GST is just not a tax reform, it`s a much larger change with its impact on every function of a business and every sector of the economy. With the government committed to introducing GST from July 2017, its 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. It is a “cross functional” issue that can affect the entire business structure and hence require input from all key business units. So in order to adapt to the changing scenario we need to prepare well in advance.
