OBJECTIVES

The Finance Ministry has announced that the Government will abolish GST and reinstate the previous Sales Tax and Service Tax (SST). The SST Bill is expected to be introduced in the next Parliamentary sitting in July and is expected to be framed with some variations based on the previous legislations. The SST is expected to be implemented in September 2018 to minimize the loss of revenue from the abolition of GST. Companies now need to get their act together to face the New SST Tax Regime and understanding its concept is a prerequisite.

The framework on Sales & Service Tax (SST) is already in place prior to the implementation of Goods & Service Tax. With the proposed SST in mind this course will introduce to the participants the previous concepts and requirements and its impact on businesses and how transitional issues will affect businesses currently registered under GST.

 

This course will highlight the principles, concepts, and compliance issues related to the Sales Tax and Service Tax and how its understanding will allow businesses to be ready to face the introduction of SST without any difficulties and will also incorporate announcements made on the SST Bill which will eventually become the Sales Tax Act and Service Tax Act.
