WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF GST ON PROCUREMENT INDIA? Vishesh Jangir

 

The nature of the Indian economy is subject to fluctuate forever throughout the near future with either the passage of India ’s greatest economic reform since 1991. The new single tax would dramatically reduce the multitude of taxation presently under imposed by various entities at various stages of the chain of development and distribution. At the very same period, a rise in the amount of taxation could adversely impact certain industries.

Here are several aspects that need to be considered by procurement gurus on how they will be impacted by GST implementation:

  1. Buying throughout regions is expected to get to be a much further extremely convenient as a single tax system would enable for smooth travel throughout state boundaries. Presently interstate logistics is a big pain field with a long queue of vehicles waiting for approval by state tax and octroi officials is a popular vision on Indian highways.It should eventually be confined to both the history when, within India, free flow of products would be necessary. It is projected that this would decrease the cost of delivery by as much as 10-15 percent and simultaneously reduce the time taken for transport. It would also open up a broader base of vendors, along with lower inventory to be retained due to shorter transport times, which will drive prices further down.
  2. VAT, CST, Excise, and Octroi are levied by various state and central government agencies under the current scheme. On account of several other taxation, a few of these taxations are implemented, leading to a cascading effect. This dramatically pushes up the cost of products.Only one unified tax being charged, it’s also assumed that a substantial decrease in the cost of goods will occur (based on the tax rate for GST). Such cost advantage would then be carried on with the consumers, which would lead to a rise in demand implicitly. In addition, the accessibility of input tax credits would decrease the tax liability on companies significantly.
  3. Only with implementation of a single tax, some sectors or businesses that have already been granted tax benefits (e.g., tax holidays for 10 years from all income and concessional VAT and sales tax for renewables in the energy sector) may have to forego these advantages. To control such benefits, the government has still been developing a system.However, there remains the risk that an improvement may be seen in some production costs. Several supply chains are actually structured to take full advantage of all the benefits. In order to reduce costs to the organization, these will have to be fully retooled.
  4. Nearly all Indian companies get a huge proportion of SME distributors, no matter how big. Although SMEs would have a bunch of tax rewards before, individuals will also be eligible to claim input tax credits for the full amount of tax charged by them. In addition, this would reduce the tax pressure on everyone, contributing to a price drop.Currently, SMEs would find it a lot easier to run a business through state boundaries with such a unified pan-India tax. Over all the months and years ahead, the exact consequences of GST will unfold. Even so, enhancing the market environment in India would go a far toward and will have a mostly successful benefit throughout the long term.
