consultancy firm EY
has launched a GST
helpdesk for small businesses wherein they can post their queries on the new indirect tax
Helpdesk is driven by a pool of indirect tax
professionals powered by over 800 GST
practitioners across 14 cities.
The facility would be available for free to small businesses, traders and entrepreneurs to achieve a seamless transition to GST
and queries can be posted on EY India Tax
Insights App, DigiGST website and EY_India on Twitter.
"This facility will help in enabling a smooth transition for smaller businesses and traders across the country," EY India
Chairman Rajiv Memani said.
Businesses are in the midst of ensuring GST
compliance and they have to align their software systems as per the GST
requirement as well as adapt themselves to the new return filing and invoice generating format.
"We believe this helpdesk will be of great help to small entrepreneurs and help them realise the benefits of GST," EY India
Leader Sudhir Kapadia said.
Goods and Services Tax
(GST), rolled out from July 1, unifies 17 different taxes like excise, service tax
and will transform India
into a single market for seamless transfer of goods and services.
