India has long earned brickbats for the complexity of its tax regime and the difficulty in carrying out business in the country. After years of consideration, goods and services tax (GST) is expected to be implemented in India from April 2017, marking the beginning of a new era for ease of doing business and solving the complex puzzle of various indirect taxes.

The GST rates and processes are still being considered but we expect final rates of 12-18%, which would be lower than the current incidence of indirect taxes, which works out to 22-24%. We can also expect procedures, tax filing and compliances that are less ambiguous, confusing and friendlier to business.

Movement of goods that involved the maximum complexity considering taxes such as value-added tax (within a state), central sales tax (interstate) and octroi at various stages of the journey of the transaction will benefit the most, giving trade, infrastructure and logistics a much needed fillip and the Indian economy the buoyancy it needs.
