The GST Bill
The Goods and Services Tax (GST) bill, considered as one of the biggest reforms in post-Independent India looks to completely change the current indirect tax structure and the related business processes. It will impact all areas of business operations including procurement, distribution, pricing strategy, inventory, and cash flow.
GST, a destination-based tax regime will institutionalize a change in the economic fabric of the nation, broaden the tax base, and help bring out more transparency.
What is Needed
Business models in every organization are structured differently. Thus, organizations need strategic guidance and a roadmap that gives them a clear vision of the best way for their business to transition to GST. This involves knowing the set of activities at each phase of the process - assessment, implementation, and post-implementation, hence, acclimatizing with the key factors to ensure a seamless transition and meeting compliance requirements.
Implications on Business Systems
These proposed changes will directly impact the Business - planning, processes, IT systems, etc. in terms of accounting and financial implications, and will demand changes in customer's business systems - master data, supply chain, among others. Hence, businesses will need a strong mechanism to make their systems GST-ready or migrate efficiently to new systems, thus, ensuring a smooth transition to GST.
Birlasoft's team of experts along with SAP are geared up to help businesses smoothly transition to GST, while also ensuring business continuity is maintained during the transition.
SAP Estimates -
"Implementation of GST will lead to 3-5 billion invoice uploads every month. SAP estimates that at least 40% of these will pass through an SAP-enabled system."
