OVERVIEW

The Finance Ministry has announced that all goods and services subjected to GST will be zero-rated from June 1 but silent on whether a new system would be implemented. A replacement tax will be needed as soon as possible in order to minimize the loss of revenue.

 

Zero Rating is a transitional situation which will ultimately lead to the repeal of the GST Act and replacing it with a new Act. Zero Rating will give time to the Government to plan and adopt probably the previous Sales Tax Act and Service Tax Act (SST) for which the framework is already in place before a new one is formulated.

 

With the proposed SST in mind this course will introduce to the participants the smooth transition from GST to SST and the type of businesses which are likely to be affected with the introduction of SST.
