The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is the biggest tax reform post-independence. It is a game changer, and can boost GDP and the economic growth of the country. For the success of GST with all its laudable objects, it is necessary to understand GST and its implications and be ‘GST compliant’. With this objective in mind, CAI, in association with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI), had organised an Open House on ‘GST- Road Ahead’, on 22nd March 2017, at the CAI premise in Cotton Green.
With the GST already in place now, several of CAI members felt the need to have greater clarity on various provisions, contained in the GST law. It was precisely with the intent of helping them understand the various provisions better, and to iron out the difficulties, if any, they may be facing to complete the process of registration/ migration under GST, the CAI organised another interactive meeting on “GST – Road Ahead” on July 17, 2017, at its premises.
This again was in association with the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI). The faculty this time was Shri. Jayesh Morarji Gogri, CA and an expert and leading consultant in the areas of GST, Customs and Foreign trade policy. He is currently a Director of GSC Intime Services Pvt. Ltd. He is a regular contributor to the BCA Journal on as well as various magazines and newspapers. Shri. Gogri is also a Government accredited trainer including ICAI, CBEC, ICSI, IIM, trade, industry and professional associations and has delivered lectures to over 1 lakh persons across India in more than 100 forums.
This second interactive session on ‘GST – Road Ahead’ was again extremely well attended, and much appreciated by the CAI members.
