GST

India has implemented Goods and Services Tax (GST) replacing a plethora of indirect taxes, with the promise of Good and Simple Tax.

GST is intended to remove inefficiencies in the supply chain due to breakage of credit chain and cascading effect of taxes. GST envisages a common national market for goods and services and removal of trade barriers. GST will have impact on supply chain, value addition and pricing of final products and services. Thus, businesses will have to adapt continuously, examine transactions, restructure operations, adopt supply chain optimization strategies, provide training to enterprise personnel, update book keeping practices and ensure changes in the IT infrastructure so as to maximize benefits from the new regime.

The indirect tax regime of central excise, service tax and VAT had its share of ambiguity, litigation on settled issues and credit blockages. GST law as it stands today may turn out to be the finest blend of the old law or an amalgam of its good and bad aspects. It does borrow provisions from the earlier statutes. GST law in its present form is not simple though it may be simpler. Being an evolving law, it may have to be interpreted, re-interpreted so that it is understood and implemented to achieve its objective of One Nation One Tax.
