India Pressing Ahead With July 1st Implementation, despite feedback that businesses are not ready!


India GST: July 1st Implementation


The GST council of India is pressing ahead with July 1st go-live, having taken many years to get agreement to this point.

Feedback from businesses are that they are still not fully prepared and would like to see the go live date pushed out however the Indian Government has committed once more to 1st July.

Returns will be filed online via the GSTN, and will require businesses to make several rate changes from the former VAT, CENVAT regimes. It is estimated that billions of transactions will be required to be processed on a monthly basis – and non-compliancy will be systematically flagged.

Businesses must ensure they have validated their supply-chain and the Tax impact under the GST rules.
