GST Service offerings
Scheduled to be launched on July 1, 2017, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) will revolutionise the way we do our taxes. It will reform the current tax situation and will bring major changes in the tax section to boost the economy. In simple terms, GST is a comprehensive destination-based tax that will levy on Centre and state levels at every value addition.
