The taxation system in India is one of the most complex tax systems in the world with multiple levels of taxes with different slabs and rates. The Government of India is trying to reduce the complexity of this current system and introduce GST into pace. GST is nothing but Goods and Service tax which will be implemented in India at several levels such as CGST (Central GST), SGST (State GST), etc., which will be replacing the existing VAT, CST, excise tax, service tax, etc. It will affect the Tax Structure, Tax Incidence, Tax Computation, Tax Payment, Compliance, Credit Utilization and Reporting leading to a complete revamp of the existing indirect tax system.
Goods & Service Tax(GST) will have a significant impact on almost all commercial organizations and the software systems they use for business operations and financial transactions, for instance IT, accounting and tax compliance systems; supply chain optimization products and service pricing. The Government is committed to implement GST by April 2017 and the tax payers need to be GST compliant and can upgrade their system changes in time.
We’re currently working on getting several of our clients in India GST ready for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations (formerly known as Dynamics AX) and one of our Microsoft Dynamics 365 clients has already gone live with their systems being GST ready (as the Model draft law hasn’t yet been enacted as law, the updates are based on changes to the Model GST law up until March 2017).
A smooth transition to the new GST regime will require several things:
A transition roadmap.
Changes in business processes, so that they are aligned with the new tax regime.
An update of Microsoft Dynamics AX to meet the proposed structure. For example, the program must support model creation, definition of business rules, and mapping of models with business rules.
Training of all personnel on new processes.
Preparation of various scenarios for the design and application of GST.
We’re developing Indian GST templates for companies from multiple industries, which are currently using Microsoft Dynamics ERP to facilitate seamless and quick deployment of Indian GST. Let us do your business’ assessment and make it future ready, give us a call or please contact us for more details on GST implementation
Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations (formerly known as Dynamics AX) is now ready with changes related to GST for India. Goods and Services Tax, commonly known as GST, is an integrated indirect tax which will replace and subsume all other indirect taxes on goods and services currently prevailing in our country once it comes into effect later in 2017.
To support the new regulation, Microsoft has updated Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2 and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 to support the new GST business processes (based on the Model GST law till March 2017). To help you understand the incorporation of new changes in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) tax framework, Microsoft has released the India GST Public Preview package for AX 2012 R2 and AX 2012 R3.
