Goods and Service Tax (GST) Transition

India is moving towards integrated tax structure on goods and services with the proposed introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST). GST would be a comprehensive tax structure which would subsume central excise duty, additional excise duties, service tax, additional Customs duty, vat/ sales tax, entertainment tax, luxury tax, etc.


Under the proposed GST, a dual system of tax is proposed wherein a central goods and services tax (CGST) and a state goods and services tax (SGST) will be levied on the taxable value of the transaction. RSM Astute provides focused services towards GST Transition and Change Management.
