2016 has witnessed some of the Indian business environment’s most dramatic changes. After a 13 year journey, with the amendment in the constitution of India, the Goods and Service Tax (GST) finally will be a reality. India signed its revised tax treaty with Mauritius, Singapore and Cyprus providing finality to a long standing dispute on the taxation of exit gains by foreign investors. The Union Government demonetized high value currency in the month of November. On the one hand this action brought the parallel economy to a virtual halt, but on the other hand it caused economic disruption on the demand front. The upcoming union budget is changing to a high expectation budget, as it will be a mid-tenure budget of the current government and an opportunity to course correct the economic disruption caused by the demonetization.
In this webcast, tax professionals from Grant Thornton India and Grant Thornton LLP will address highlights of the 2017 budget, along with major policy initiatives, and an overview of the recent developments on the long-awaited goods and service tax (GST).
