After getting the Draft Model Goods and Services Tax (“GST”) Law on public domain on June 14, 2016, GST has been creating a buzz amongst all stake holders, eagerly waiting for the monsoon session of the Parliament to commence with the hope that the much awaited Constitutional (122nd Amendment) Bill, 2014 on GST will be passed, which will pave the way for GST in the Country.
GST is a destination based consumption tax levied at multiple stages of production and distribution of goods and services, with taxes on inputs credited against taxes on output. GST is going to be big game changer and will be one of the most significant tax reforms in the fiscal history of India to consolidate present multiple layers of Indirect taxation and will have far-reaching impacts on almost all the realms of business operations in our country. It will impact tax structure, tax incidence, tax computation, supply chain optimization, credit utilization, compliance system etc., leading to a complete overhaul of the current indirect tax system.
