Goods and Service Tax (GST), one of the major tax reforms in India, finally became a reality when it was introduced in July 2017. Given the magnitude of the change, it comes with its own set of challenges and complexities. The change is not only in the law but also in an attempt to infuse technology for reporting requirements.

The government has been very proactive in trying to streamline its processes and adjust to the demands of the industry. Given the frequent clarifications/changes in the law and interpretation issues, it is imperative for businesses to re-visit the positions taken at the time of the introduction of GST to ensure that the businesses do not get affected in the longer run.
