A Guide to India’s New Goods and Services Tax (GST) and What It Means for SAP Customers

January 9, 2018

This white paper is hosted by SAPinsider and sponsored by Vertex.

After a decade-long journey, India's Goods and Services Tax (GST) took effect in July 2017, replacing one of the world's most complicated, origin-based indirect tax systems – a system that was plagued by a complex tangle of national and state taxes, including a central excise duty, a service tax, a countervailing custom duty (CVD), and a special additional duty (SAD) as part of the customs tax structure. This complex network of taxes, in addition to state luxury taxes and value added tax (VAT), often resulted in a cascading effect of tax upon tax, generating significant costs for companies conducting business in India. So what does this new GST mean for SAP customers?

Read this white paper to gain an understanding of the key components of the new GST, the compliance challenges exist, and how SAP customers can adapt to changing compliance requirements and enable more efficient tax management. Topics include:

  • How Indian tax authorities are aggressively pursuing tax compliance
  • The latest changes implemented with India’s GST and associated compliance reporting 
  • The importance of a tax data management strategy when adapting to changing compliance requirements

Nice brief overview of new GST regime in India. However the information seems a little outdated. Would like to have an article on the current state of GST regime i.e. 6 months after implementation. However the article is a good start for those who have not looked / read about GST until now.
