In this webinar, you will hear directly from the Government of India about the new Indian Goods and Services Tax (GST) that is being implemented on July 1, 2017 that will potentially impact your company.
The GST is a major reform that creates a common market across India’s 29 States and 7 Union Territories and establishes a system with most goods and services categorized under taxation rates of 0, 5, 12, 18, and 28 percent – with some additional surcharges for specific items.
Objective: The webinar is designed to inform the U.S. private sector about how the GST is structured, progress on its implementation, and compliance requirements for companies. This webinar is part of a broader U.S.-India private sector outreach initiative on facilitating business opportunities for U.S. companies in India.
Event Information: There will be several featured speakers, including a GST expert from the Department of Revenue of the Indian Ministry of Finance.
The webinar will also feature a GST Question and Answer Session. Please submit your questions to Commerce Department International Trade Specialist Noor Sclafani at Noor.Sclafani@trade.gov on or before July 7.
