The Indian Parliament passes GST Constitution Amendment Bill

05 August 2016

The Indian Parliament has voted unanimously to introduce the Goods and Services Tax (GST). This is a significant development which will affect all businesses with interests in India or who trade with India. 

We understand that the Government is likely to push for 1 April, 2017 as the date for GST implementation. Considering the limited time available and the potential impact of GST on businesses (for example, on product pricing, working capital, information system, supply chain, contractual arrangements, etc.), businesses may wish to start to prepare now.
