GST Migration Masterclass (Bangalore)

The Lok Sabha on 29th March 2017 passed the Central GST Bill, the Integrated GST Bill, the GST Compensation Bill, and the Union Territory GST Bills following a  nine-hour debate. The fifth legislation, the State GST Bill, will need to be passed by the Assemblies of each of the States and the Union Territories with legislature. The passage of the Bills marks a big step forward in India’s plans to rollout GST from July 1 2017. The GST Council had earlier 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.

Gearing up for changes in process, training of personal and redesigning the IT systems for being GST compliant is the need of the hour.
