Goods and Service Tax (GST) Transition

India is moving towards integrated tax structure on goods and services with the proposed introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST). GST would be a comprehensive tax structure which would subsume central excise duty, additional excise duties, service tax, additional Customs duty, VAT/ sales tax, entertainment tax, luxury tax, etc.

Under the proposed GST, a dual system of tax is proposed wherein a Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) and a State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) will be levied on the taxable value of the transaction. Suresh Surana & Associates provides focused services towards GST Transition and Change Management.
