ET GBS 2017: Some CXOs, legal eagles see gain in GST, others feel the pain


Service providers, young entrepreneurs and legal experts at the Global Business Summit voiced concerns and expressed hope with regard to the impending indirect tax regime as the parliament discussed the goods and services tax (GST) bills.

Analysing the GST as a combination of the state, central and interstate GST, Bimal Jain, executive director of A2Z Taxcorp, lamented the differential treatment meted out to services under the proposed new indirect tax structure. “Services tax rates will increase to 18% from 15%, and this will
reduce the purchasing power of the consumers,” said Jain. Another pain point which he highlighted
was the multiple statewise registrations required for service providers under the GST.

Application Service Providers (ASP) and GSTN Suvidha Providers (GSPs) are part of an indispensable chain to ensure the success of the ‘one nation, one tax’ dream GST wants
to accomplish.

Alok Agarwal and Ankit Agarwal of Alankit, spoke of the need to educate people to ensure
a smooth transition to GST from July 1.

“Increasing the awareness will help people understand the law and learning to use the
goods and services tax network (GSTN) efficiently and will ensure seamless deployment,”
said Ankit Agarwal. Sandeep Khurana, CEO of Udyog Software India, an ASP, agreed,
saying an efficient software system can help navigate the supposed ambiguities in the the government to relook at the ambiguous clauses, especially with respect to services and ensure GST is truly a flat tax regime.

Snapdeal CFO Anup Vikal lauded the GST legislation as having finally defined the
‘e-commerce’ space formally. However, he was critical of the tax collection at source
clauses made mandatory under the proposed laws. “Majority of our sellers are small and
medium enterprises, and deducting tax at source is bound to impact their cash flows.”

What is Cloud Services and Cloud Computing?

A cloud service is any service made available to users on demand via the Internet from a cloud computing provider's servers as opposed to being provided from a company's own on-premises servers. Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider.
On the other hand, Cloud computing is a type of computing that relies on shared computing resources rather than having local servers or personal devices to handle applications. In its most simple description, cloud computing is taking services ("cloud services") and moving them outside an organization's firewall. Applications, storage and other services are accessed via the Web. The services are delivered and used over the Internet and are paid for by the cloud customer on and as-needed or pay-per-use business model.

Basic Fundamental of Technical Analysis

Technical analysis may appear complicated on the surface, but it boils down to an analysis of supply and demand in the market to determine where the price trend is headed. In other words, technical analysis attempts to understand the market sentiment behind price trends rather than analyzing a security’s fundamental attributes. If you understand the benefits and limitations of technical analysis, it can give you a new set of tools or skills that will enable you to be a better trader or investor over the long-term.
There are two primary methods used to analyze securities and make investment decisions: fundamental analysis and technical analysis. Fundamental analysis involves analyzing a company’s financial statements to determine the fair value of the business, while technical analysis assumes that a security’s price already reflects all publicly-available information and instead focuses on the statistical analysis of price movements.
Technical analysis is a method of evaluating securiti…
