India's new GST

After 10 years of effort, India’s new Goods and Services Tax (GST) seems set to take effect on 1 July 2017, ushering in one of the most significant reforms in the country’s history.

Planning for the transition offers an excellent opportunity for organizations to take a transformative approach, assessing and realigning business models to drive efficiencies, gain competitive edge and boost profits.
