The Goods and Service Tax (GST) has been the biggest game-changing step in the Indian economy. By introducing this single tax, taxes including Service Tax, State VAT/ Sales Tax, Central Excise Duty, Entertainment Tax, Purchase Tax, Luxury Tax, Surcharges and Cess, and many others taxes are replaced by GST. From July 1, 2017, onwards, GST has replaced India’s current complex State and Central indirect tax structure to make a common market with an unlined indirect tax regime.
Now, Goods and Service Tax is practiced as a single indirect tax for the whole nation applied on the supply of goods and services that starts from the manufacturer to the consumer. This indirect tax affects every part of the businesses from Cash Flows to Financial Reporting to Tax Accounting & reporting to pricing to profitability to supply chain to marketing and so on.
But most of the business people have only the surface level knowledge or understanding of GST, there are only few big corporates who have the knowledge on how to handle GST. The small business people have facing multiple challenges in handling GST; they are not only struggling in understanding but also in various aspects and subtleties of GST regime. Most of them are also clueless in choosing the right person who can handle GST and GST filing process for their business.
Not all businesses are the same, each one has different needs and requirements, so each one has to develop or search for their customized solutions that will be suited for their business and needs.
