Executive Program on Goods & Services Tax (GST)

We are pleased to announce an “Executive Program on GST”. GST is one of the biggest and much awaited reform in India's Indirect Tax structure.

Why GST?

Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an indirect tax reform which aims to remove tax barriers between states and create single market access in India. It is also expected to address the current issue of inefficiencies in the tax system, prevent cascading impact of multi-level taxation, plug the revenue leakages and raise the transparency levels in business.

Everyone will be impacted! GST not only impacts the Finance and Accounting Function in an organisation, but also the Purchase / Procurement, Sales & Marketing, Production, Distribution and Logistics, Human Resources, Administration, Information Technology inter alia.

The Key function heads and their respective team members need to understand the implication of GST, so that the organisation is prepared to meet the challenges and ensure appropriate level of readiness. There will be significant change in the way decisions are being made across various functions. It is imperative that the team completely understands GST, handle its implication and be ready in implementing the Tax Reform in the most effective and efficient manner.
