What are the useful GST seminars to attend online?

As GST is still a new concept in India to tax payers hence we will have to learn about it thoroughly before you can register for it and even if you register you might still take time to completely adapt to the new tax system. In order to learn every detail there are GST seminars online that can help you figure out what about all that you want to know about GST.

Here are some of the useful GST seminars that you will find online:

In the country GST will soon be replacing almost all the indirect taxes except customs, stamp duty and property taxes. The cost of tax on all commodities is expected to go down after the implementation of GST this is because GST eliminates tax on tax and provides tax credit adjustment without breaking credit chain. For example currently when a manufacturer sells to a trader he charges him excise, when the trader sells again he charges VAT but cannot adjust the excise credit against it. This causes the excise paid by him to be added to his cost.

But, after GST manufacturer sells to trader and charges him GST. When the trader sells again he charges GST and avails input tax credit thereby, eliminating the taxes paid becoming a cost.

If you run a business in India you will have to register for GST. If your business turnover is over 20 lakhs per annum, if you already have an indirect tax registration, you will have to convert that into a GST registration. There will be three tax components in GST, if you run a business within the state then state GST and central GST will apply. If you export or sale across states integrated GST will apply. All the businesses will have to now apply for three returns every month against 1 large. GST payment must be made digitally only and hence would bring a wide spread adoption of technology. Businesses with multiple branches will have to adopt twice a technology to facilitate branch transfers which is apparently GST charged and will have to re-plan their location since the advantage of state wise differential taxes will eliminated and the country would become a single market.
