QuickBooks is GST ready
On July 1, 2017, the Government of India will be implementing the Goods and Services Tax (GST), a destination based tax on consumption of goods and services.
The tax will be levied on all stages of manufacturing of goods, right up to its final consumption. As a business owner, you will be required to pay taxes on value addition and in stages available as setoff. While only value addition will be taxed, the final consumer will be bearing the burden of the full tax.
GST will be a dual taxation, with both the Centre and States separately levying it on a common tax base. The Central GST (CGST) will be levied by the Centre on intra-State supply of goods and services. The State GST (SGST) will be levied by the States. Integrated GST (IGST) will be levied by Centre on inter-state supply of goods and services.
