Seminar on GST Implications - Industry Perspective: Gearing up for the Change
 
 
Description

GST is India's most significant indirect tax reform in decades. It is expected to usher in a harmonized national market of goods and services and shall lead to a simplified, assessee-friendly tax administration system. Once implemented, it will subsume all of the Central and State-level duties and taxes, thus making the country a national market and would contribute significantly to the growth of the economy.

GST represents not just a change in the indirect tax regime, but also a business transformation. Gearing up for such a change in the processes, understanding the new legislation and redesigning the IT systems for being GST compliant is the need of the hour. With this background, the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) organised a series of day long Seminars pan-India to deliberate on the key GST issues, which helped clarify and understand the GST implementation better.

Schedule of GST Seminars were:

 4 November, 2016: Delhi

10 November, 2016: Mumbai

15 November, 2016: Kolkata

18 November, 2016: Chennai 

 Key Issues discussed during the day long sessions were:

 • Update on GST Legislation: Primer on GST and Corporate readiness

GST and Industry IT readiness - Role of technology to facilitate a smooth transition to GST

Transitional Issues, such as Grandfathering, Treatment of continuing Contracts/ Agreements and Issues related to     Import/ Export of Goods and Services

Implementation Issues, such as ITC/Credit Mechanism, GSTN compliance and Pending Litigations/ Assessments

Sectoral Analysis on Manufacturing, Services and IT/E-commerce

There were 200+ delegates in each of the day long seminars, which were addressed by around 30 expert speakers from around the country from all fraternities- Government, industry and consultants. The Government and GSTN officials were particularly enthusiastic, and expressed the desire to address more such interactions/ workshops on GST in future. They appreciated the efforts of CII in conducting the elaborate seminars, which played a big role in educating the industry on GST, as well as clarifying their doubts on the new legislation.
