It is July 1st, 2017 – the epic day when GST, aka The Goods and Services Tax comes into effect, simplifying the whole tax collection procedure of the nation. From today, there will be a single tax on the supply of goods and services that will replace all other state and central levies. GST is pegged to be one of the most impressive economic tax reforms implemented by PM Narendra Modi to take Bharat to the summit of transparent digitization.
Data is crucial. While it ushers in a greater transparency and simplified tracking through data, it also unleashes the requirement for Data Analytics and ERP solutions. Besides, GST includes several billing software and payment gateway channelization, triggering plenitude of job opportunities in the IT sector. Reports say it is going to be a $1 billion opportunity for IT vendors over the next two years. Quite a lot to think about!
