Govt. of India introduced Goods & Service Tax on 1 July 2017, with a vision of One India One Tax. Initially it was a matter of debate amongst different political parties, finance & tax professionals, Scholars and Industrialist, whether GST will be a game changer or game spoiler. The idea behind was to bring India on a Global platform by simplifying Indirect Tax Laws by merging central and state taxes so as give equal business opportunity to every Indian state.
The Govt. thrust while implementing GST (Goods & Service Tax) relied more on technology so as to make the process secure, smarter and faster. It helped small & medium entrepreneurs, business houses and industrialist to transform traditional tax reporting / tax filling into electronic filing (e-filing) by way of filing monthly state-wise returns, transaction-level data upload, revenue reconciliation, reconciliation with vendor, GSTN invoice matching etc.
In the initial phase of implementation, every law has to undergo some changes, likewise GST is also not untouched with this evolutions. The frequent changes in GST laws, rules & procedures in the initial phase resulted due to varied Industry representations at GST council which has forced the Law makers to embed changes in GST Laws to stabilise business and Industry. This process is still on and will be continue till GST stabilises. It is very difficult for small and medium entrepreneurs to keep abreast with such changes on regular basis due to lack of proper professional support and process expertise.
