GST – An Overview
• GST stands for Goods & Service Tax. GST is an indirect Tax which the Government of India is planning to
levy on Goods and Services. There are exemptions in the Model GST Law (MGL).
• Once implemented, major indirect taxes would get subsume in GST. Central Taxes like Excise Duty, various
Cesses, etc and State Taxes like VAT, Entry Tax, etc will gets subsumed.
• GST is a destination based tax on consumption of goods and services. It is proposed to be levied at all stages
right from manufacture, distribution and up to final consumption with credit of taxes paid at previous stages
available as set-off against taxes payable on output. That means, only value addition will be taxed and burden
of tax is to be borne by the final consumer
• While National GST has been practiced in other countries, India will follow Dual GST model – i.e. state and
central government will both levy GST termed as SGST and CGST. This is applicable for supply of goods
within the state. Hence, tax accounts for State and Central to be separately maintained.
• Integrated GST (IGST) to be levied for inter-state supply. IGST is the sum of CGST and SGST
• Taxable Event : “Supply of Goods or Service for Consideration”
G.U.I.D.E 4
GST – An Overview
• The magnitude on the “Supply of Service for consideration” has varied interpretation & impacts; hence, to be
analysed in depth. The following example is worth reading & understanding:
• Suppose, if you want to offer Rs.10,000/- to a place of worship, it can be done in several ways. While it is a
debatable one whether these offerings are taxable, let us forget for a while and consider the cases 1 by 1
# Action Event Remarks
1 Offerings in Hundi Non Taxable
2 Donated via Cheque or Electronic Mode Non Taxable
3 Illuminating / Lighting the Premises by Cash or Kind Non Taxable
4 Writing / Sticking your Name on the light Taxable Because of brand promotion / marketing /
sponsorship, etc, it is treated as ‘consideration’
• Trade Promotions / Merchandise Display can be under GST due to Supply of Service for Consideration.
• One of my friend told me that huge amount of tax can be collected if Bribery is made taxable. In fact, Bribery
is a practical example of “Service for (Special) Consideration” but it is outside the scope.
• The scope of this presentation is restricted to Supply of Goods for consideration
G.U.I.D.E 5
GST – An Overview
• Products will be identified by Harmonized System of Nomenclature (HSN). HSN is a standard code practiced
across countries.
• Government of India has published standard coding convention for the list of States and Union Territories
• GST Network (GSTN) is a single window system to file the Tax Returns for both State & Central Departments
• Registration to GST Network system with PAN linked GST Identification Number (GSTIN). GSTIN is a 15 digit
code with the combination of State Code + PAN + Series + Z + Checksum
Take-Aways
• Dual GST – For every intra-state transaction on Supply of Goods for consideration, both the taxes (CGST &
SGST) to be levied concurrently and submitted to Central and State Govt. respectively. This is a change from
the current practice of applying only VAT and respective State levies.
• For Inter-State Transactions, IGST to be charged and submitted to Central Govt. – which is similar to CST.
• GSTIN & HSN to be used in all transactions pertaining to Supply of Goods

• Matching the claimed credits with the vendor tax liability through GST Network. In case of difference / discrepancy, excess
credits will be disallowed to the recipient.
• Changing the Financial Year (Jan to Dec) is being discussed. This might have an impact on revisiting the Returns filing.
• * Kindly refer to MGL for details

GST – Getting Ready
• Initial date for GST rollout was 01-Apr-2017. With the delays in reaching out the consensus in GST council
meetings and Winter Session disruptions, the target date has been revised to 01-July-2017.
• While majority of the group thinking that the GST is just a Tax % change, whereas matured groups have
started analysing the impact and geared up their IT systems for making changes to become GST compliant.
• GST is not just a tax reform. It’s actually a business reform which will have affect areas like supply chain,
logistics, distribution model, pricing structure and IT Systems
• The magnitude of impact is such a high that the Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia and economic adviser
Arvind Subramanian said no country has claimed a flawless GST since inception, and further and better
change in complex systems is incremental.
• As mentioned earlier that the implementation of GST is not just a change in taxation or will
not only impact supply chain, logistics, distribution and manufacturing but also has a wider
implication on IT as ERP systems which will need changes in the form of customization,
configuration and Testing.
• While designing the configuration / customisation changes, due consideration should be
given, such that the system is not only GST ready, but is also scalable & adaptable to
future changes pertaining to the Statutory requirements

G.U.I.D.E 14
GST – IT Systems Implementation Dependencies
It is important to identify the Internal & External Dependencies as part of GST Compliance
preparation. Here is the high level Risk Planning & Mitigation
MGL &
Amendments
# Description Severity Mitigation / Contingency
1 MGL framework has dual GST –
Any changes will have cascading
impact
High Having enacted the MGL, the framework of
dual GST has been baselined.
2 Tax Slabs / Rates are not defined Medium Configurable solutions in IT Systems helps in
defining Tax rate, mapping, etc
3 Only MGL is enacted - let us wait
for the final Bill
Medium Bill has to be passed in parliament – it is
outside our control. Absorb the Risk
4 Changes to internal IT systems can
be made after freezing the Bill
High With MGL framework, initiate the IT
development & prepare for compliance
5 Lack of clarity on the GSTN
requirement / formats
High Acknowledge the Risk and have contingency
plan worked for development
G.U.I.D.E 15
GST Impact on DMS – Estimates
Development
• On an average the development effort is estimated between 15 to 20% of the customized solution
• Additional effort required for Developing GSTN interface formats (Still the format is not available)
• Testing requires end to end
• Overall effort can be around 35% to 40%
Operational
• Generally, the magnitude of Operational complexity is termed as twice that of development
• The success of the software is not passing the testing but put into correct usage
• Training to End users, Piloting
Timeline
• Since the Target date is 01-July-2017 for Go Live, it is important to keep it ready by 01-June-2017 so that it
helps in focused roll out
G.U.I.D.E 16
GST Impact on DMS – Process Model
Suggest the model to define the Processes.
V-Process Model helps to :
• Define the Specifications along with Evaluation
criteria at every stage
• Understand the implications & exceptions if
properly designed & defined
• Mandatorily Test each deliverable
• Monitor Project Progress based on deliverables
• Achieve higher chance of Success
• Increase Productivity
• Accelerate Development
Can be used within an iterative step
Since the prime result of Proto-type is almost
equivalent to the end product, better to initiate the
development in order to meet the timelines
Software Development & Walking on Water are Easy …. Provided both are FROZEN
G.U.I.D.E 17
GST – Gate Check for Implementation
01 July
2017
Ideally X, Y, Z should have value (months) as 1, 2 & 3 respectively. That means, if the Target Date (T) is 01-July-2017, then, T-x should be
completed by 01-June-2017. This gives ample time for handling unknown-unknowns

GST Impact on DMS – Measuring the Project Progress
Impact Analysis Project Plan
Development
UAT Pilot
Go Live
20%
60%
80%
100%
Key Criteria
• Target Date is FIXED – Need Reverse Pass
• Formulation of CORE Group
• Core Group should consists of representation from:
• Sales / Business
• IT (ERP, Development, Testing & Implementation)
• Finance, Taxation, Audit Teams
• Define R & R and fix responsibility
• Understand the GST & Document the Impacts
• Acceptance Test Criteria to be defined in parallel
• Identify Critical Business Scenarios & Pilot Sites
• Weekly Reviews followed by Gate Checks
• Do it Right First Time, Every Time (no Variance)
Note: This is limited to Go Live. The Success of the implementation to be
measured post go live
G.U.I.D.E 19
GST Impact on DMS – Bringing Delivery Excellence
• GST tax implications to be documented separately in similar terms of Business Requirement Document (BRD)
• Strongly recommend to have a matrix based GST Tax structure for ease of understanding to the technical &
testing teams
• Requirement Traceability Matrix will help to the greater extent in not missing out things during testing
• Risk Management for identifying the mitigation plans
• Product Acceptance Criteria definition should be a measurable one:
• 95% of Test Cases should be Passed successfully
• Zero Failure on Critical / Fatal & Major type Test Cases
• Operational challenges
• Classify it as Internal & External Challenges
• Strategize separate plans for Corporate & Distributor level challenges
• Have training & implementation plan for Pilot & Rollouts
• Create Network & understand the latest updates … especially on the Formats for filing the Tax returns
Thanks for reading with patience. I always believe my core strength is Delivery (Software) and I have took
special focus in learning the GST as part of academic interest by going through the MGL and discussing
with consultants. I am sharing my learnings & ideas for transformation based on my experience & passion
to deliver.
Believe it has provided the necessary insight into the GST, its impacts and how to get your systems ready
for the show.
Some of the crucial factors are on the GST behaviour with respect to Transactions. Further, these are to
be verified & validated for compliance. Based on the response received, I will try to release the next
version with deep dive on to Transaction Analysis and Verification & Validation Rules for compliance.
Yours,
Gans

Gst impact on Dealer Management Solutions (DMS)

  • 1. G.u.i.d.e to GST Compliance for Dealer Management Systems Impacts Challenges Solutions ScheduleIntroduction
  • 2. Greetings! Purpose of this presentation is to give highlights of the potential impacts on the proposed GST regime in India pertaining to Dealer Management System (DMS) along with probable solutions towards GST Compliance preparations. Information is based on MGL, interaction with professionals, consultants and of course internet. Corporate need to adopt a proactive approach in understanding the GST impacts on their IT systems well before the GST Bill becomes a law. Amendments to the Bill are always on the cards, which again could have a cascading impacts. The presentation is not to render any definitive opinion on any of the activities of stakeholders under the GST regime. It is hereby presumed that the reader has guidance / advise from Professionals before implementation of aspects covered under this presentation. Kindly treat it as a Guide and not as the Guard! Yours, Gans (Ganapathy Subramaniam T.K.) PS: Guide – Gans Useful Ideas on Delivery Excellence. Disclaimer
  • 3. G.U.I.D.E 3 GST – An Overview • GST stands for Goods & Service Tax. GST is an indirect Tax which the Government of India is planning to levy on Goods and Services. There are exemptions in the Model GST Law (MGL). • Once implemented, major indirect taxes would get subsume in GST. Central Taxes like Excise Duty, various Cesses, etc and State Taxes like VAT, Entry Tax, etc will gets subsumed. • GST is a destination based tax on consumption of goods and services. It is proposed to be levied at all stages right from manufacture, distribution and up to final consumption with credit of taxes paid at previous stages available as set-off against taxes payable on output. That means, only value addition will be taxed and burden of tax is to be borne by the final consumer • While National GST has been practiced in other countries, India will follow Dual GST model – i.e. state and central government will both levy GST termed as SGST and CGST. This is applicable for supply of goods within the state. Hence, tax accounts for State and Central to be separately maintained. • Integrated GST (IGST) to be levied for inter-state supply. IGST is the sum of CGST and SGST • Taxable Event : “Supply of Goods or Service for Consideration”
  • 4. G.U.I.D.E 4 GST – An Overview • The magnitude on the “Supply of Service for consideration” has varied interpretation & impacts; hence, to be analysed in depth. The following example is worth reading & understanding: • Suppose, if you want to offer Rs.10,000/- to a place of worship, it can be done in several ways. While it is a debatable one whether these offerings are taxable, let us forget for a while and consider the cases 1 by 1 # Action Event Remarks 1 Offerings in Hundi Non Taxable 2 Donated via Cheque or Electronic Mode Non Taxable 3 Illuminating / Lighting the Premises by Cash or Kind Non Taxable 4 Writing / Sticking your Name on the light Taxable Because of brand promotion / marketing / sponsorship, etc, it is treated as ‘consideration’ • Trade Promotions / Merchandise Display can be under GST due to Supply of Service for Consideration. • One of my friend told me that huge amount of tax can be collected if Bribery is made taxable. In fact, Bribery is a practical example of “Service for (Special) Consideration” but it is outside the scope. • The scope of this presentation is restricted to Supply of Goods for consideration
  • 5. G.U.I.D.E 5 GST – An Overview • Products will be identified by Harmonized System of Nomenclature (HSN). HSN is a standard code practiced across countries. • Government of India has published standard coding convention for the list of States and Union Territories • GST Network (GSTN) is a single window system to file the Tax Returns for both State & Central Departments • Registration to GST Network system with PAN linked GST Identification Number (GSTIN). GSTIN is a 15 digit code with the combination of State Code + PAN + Series + Z + Checksum Take-Aways • Dual GST – For every intra-state transaction on Supply of Goods for consideration, both the taxes (CGST & SGST) to be levied concurrently and submitted to Central and State Govt. respectively. This is a change from the current practice of applying only VAT and respective State levies. • For Inter-State Transactions, IGST to be charged and submitted to Central Govt. – which is similar to CST. • GSTIN & HSN to be used in all transactions pertaining to Supply of Goods
  • 6. G.U.I.D.E 6 Transaction Type Tax Component Description To be Levied by Tax Credit Utilization Conditions to Claim Credit Timelines * Intra-State Transactions (Within State) CGST Central Goods & Service Tax [This will subsume Excise Duty, Additional Excise Duty, Service Tax, CVD, SAD, Surcharge] Central Govt. Inputs can be utilized against output CGST / IGST Possession of Tax Invoice Within 1 Year from date of Invoice SGST State Goods & Service Tax [VAT, Entertainment tax levied by states, Luxury Tax, Tax on Lottery, Entry tax other than for local bodies] State Govt. Inputs can be utilized against output SGST / IGST Receipt of Goods / Service Filing of Return Or Sep of subseq. Financial year Inter-State Transactions (Outside State) IGST Integrated Goods & Service Tax Applies to Inter-State Transactions (including transfer of Stock) Central Govt. Inputs can be utilized against output IGST / CGST / SGST Tax charged on the Invoice by Supplier Addl. Tax Provision for Future GST – Tax Components • Credit rules probably the most controversial change suggested by the MGL. Might impact cash flow / margins. • Matching the claimed credits with the vendor tax liability through GST Network. In case of difference / discrepancy, excess credits will be disallowed to the recipient. • Changing the Financial Year (Jan to Dec) is being discussed. This might have an impact on revisiting the Returns filing. • * Kindly refer to MGL for details
  • 7. G.U.I.D.E 7 GST – Quick Summary  Registration to GST Network (GSTN) system for PAN linked GST Identification Number (GSTIN)GSTN Registration  Registered users (VAT / Service Tax) will be migrated to GSTN  Input Tax Credit during VAT / Service Tax will be migrated to GST digital ledger (Conditions Apply)  Common Returns for both Central & State Government departments [GSTR-1 to 8]  Allows tax credit at intermediate level of invoices raised between vendor & supplier Filing of Returns  Dual Levy imposed concurrently by Central & State Governments  Consumption based and not on Production Or Gross Income Based Tax Reform  Product classification using Harmonized System of Nomenclature (HSN)  Common lists of exempted Products for State & Centre. Flexibility for States for deviation Product  Area based exemption has been removed  Common Tax Base for State & Centre  Tax norm defined for both Inter-State & Intra- State supplies Area of Coverage Transition
  • 8. G.U.I.D.E 8 GST – Getting Ready • Initial date for GST rollout was 01-Apr-2017. With the delays in reaching out the consensus in GST council meetings and Winter Session disruptions, the target date has been revised to 01-July-2017. • While majority of the group thinking that the GST is just a Tax % change, whereas matured groups have started analysing the impact and geared up their IT systems for making changes to become GST compliant. • GST is not just a tax reform. It’s actually a business reform which will have affect areas like supply chain, logistics, distribution model, pricing structure and IT Systems • The magnitude of impact is such a high that the Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia and economic adviser Arvind Subramanian said no country has claimed a flawless GST since inception, and further and better change in complex systems is incremental. • As mentioned earlier that the implementation of GST is not just a change in taxation or will not only impact supply chain, logistics, distribution and manufacturing but also has a wider implication on IT as ERP systems which will need changes in the form of customization, configuration and Testing. • While designing the configuration / customisation changes, due consideration should be given, such that the system is not only GST ready, but is also scalable & adaptable to future changes pertaining to the Statutory requirements
  • 10. G.U.I.D.E 10 GST Impact on DMS – Functional / Business Process • Analyse the scenarios of GST impact on to Supply of Goods & Services. Remember that the tax base has been expanded – hence, it is important to analyse, ascertain and apply business rules change. • Refining or Redefining the impact of Indirect Taxes pertaining to Business Processes • Inter-State & Intra-State Transactions (Purchases, Sales) • Stock Transfers • Back-dated Billing (subject to availability of this feature in the IT system) • Revisiting the Tax Definitions, Type of Taxes, Rate Configurations, Taxable Events & Computations • Product Vs Tax Mapping • Supply from/to registered / Un-registered / Exempted entities, Out of Scope Items, Zero Rated Items • Financial Aspects : Reverse Charge Mechanism, Threshold Limits, Advance Payments, Post Invoice Discount • Tax Repository, Tax Traceability at every transactional level • Tax Utilization, Returns Filing
  • 11. G.U.I.D.E 11 GST Impact on DMS IT Landscape High Impact Potential Impact (Subject to Business Process) GST compliance will have direct impact on the following: • Master Data, Data Structures • Business Application & Associated interfaces viz. • ERP & Business Application • Bus. Appln & Accounting Systems • Data capturing, transfer & retrieval • Business Rules / Logic change • Transactions & Amendments (Sales, Purchase, Claims, etc) • Report Formats / Printing Formats • Account Postings • Data Upload / Download for Tax Returns filing • Test Build for Cut-Over, Piloting • Strategic solutions for Change-Over Primary Systems Secondary Systems
  • 12. G.U.I.D.E 12 GST Impact on DMS – Governance • Verification & Validation Procedures • GSTN Registration • Tax Verification & Validations • Tax Rates • Tax Computations • No Input Tax Credit for Additional Taxes • Verifying the behaviour of Amendment of Invoices pertaining to VAT regime • Generation of Tax Return filing forms (GSTR-1 to 8) in line with GST • Reporting of all transactions relevant under GST in electronic format • Purchase, Sales • Debit / Credit Notes • Supplementary Invoices • To support Excise / VAT for out of scope GST items • Migration of Input Tax Credit • Data Download / Upload, Input Tax Credits
  • 13. G.U.I.D.E 13 GST Impact on DMS – Operational • Need to work out Cut-Over strategy based on the type of internal systems • Cloud based Systems – Single instance for multiple corporate • Online based Systems – Separate instance for each corporate • Client / Server based Systems – Installation / Patch required at every distributor site • GST Regime Preparation Activities • Tax Definitions, Rates • Products Vs Tax Mapping • State Codes • Data Migration Strategy • Open Transactions • Stock in Transit • Goods received but invoice not raised • Orders booked but not converted to invoice • Financial Benefits / Constraints to distributors due to difference in price between VAT & GST tax regime / rates • Process for tax utilization at the end of the month will help the business
  • 14. G.U.I.D.E 14 GST – IT Systems Implementation Dependencies It is important to identify the Internal & External Dependencies as part of GST Compliance preparation. Here is the high level Risk Planning & Mitigation MGL & Amendments # Description Severity Mitigation / Contingency 1 MGL framework has dual GST – Any changes will have cascading impact High Having enacted the MGL, the framework of dual GST has been baselined. 2 Tax Slabs / Rates are not defined Medium Configurable solutions in IT Systems helps in defining Tax rate, mapping, etc 3 Only MGL is enacted - let us wait for the final Bill Medium Bill has to be passed in parliament – it is outside our control. Absorb the Risk 4 Changes to internal IT systems can be made after freezing the Bill High With MGL framework, initiate the IT development & prepare for compliance 5 Lack of clarity on the GSTN requirement / formats High Acknowledge the Risk and have contingency plan worked for development
  • 15. G.U.I.D.E 15 GST Impact on DMS – Estimates Development • On an average the development effort is estimated between 15 to 20% of the customized solution • Additional effort required for Developing GSTN interface formats (Still the format is not available) • Testing requires end to end • Overall effort can be around 35% to 40% Operational • Generally, the magnitude of Operational complexity is termed as twice that of development • The success of the software is not passing the testing but put into correct usage • Training to End users, Piloting Timeline • Since the Target date is 01-July-2017 for Go Live, it is important to keep it ready by 01-June-2017 so that it helps in focused roll out
  • 16. G.U.I.D.E 16 GST Impact on DMS – Process Model Suggest the model to define the Processes. V-Process Model helps to : • Define the Specifications along with Evaluation criteria at every stage • Understand the implications & exceptions if properly designed & defined • Mandatorily Test each deliverable • Monitor Project Progress based on deliverables • Achieve higher chance of Success • Increase Productivity • Accelerate Development Can be used within an iterative step Since the prime result of Proto-type is almost equivalent to the end product, better to initiate the development in order to meet the timelines Software Development & Walking on Water are Easy …. Provided both are FROZEN
  • 17. G.U.I.D.E 17 GST – Gate Check for Implementation 01 July 2017 Ideally X, Y, Z should have value (months) as 1, 2 & 3 respectively. That means, if the Target Date (T) is 01-July-2017, then, T-x should be completed by 01-June-2017. This gives ample time for handling unknown-unknowns
  • 18. G.U.I.D.E 18 GST Impact on DMS – Measuring the Project Progress Impact Analysis Project Plan Development UAT Pilot Go Live 20% 60% 80% 100% Key Criteria • Target Date is FIXED – Need Reverse Pass • Formulation of CORE Group • Core Group should consists of representation from: • Sales / Business • IT (ERP, Development, Testing & Implementation) • Finance, Taxation, Audit Teams • Define R & R and fix responsibility • Understand the GST & Document the Impacts • Acceptance Test Criteria to be defined in parallel • Identify Critical Business Scenarios & Pilot Sites • Weekly Reviews followed by Gate Checks • Do it Right First Time, Every Time (no Variance) Note: This is limited to Go Live. The Success of the implementation to be measured post go live
  • 19. G.U.I.D.E 19 GST Impact on DMS – Bringing Delivery Excellence • GST tax implications to be documented separately in similar terms of Business Requirement Document (BRD) • Strongly recommend to have a matrix based GST Tax structure for ease of understanding to the technical & testing teams • Requirement Traceability Matrix will help to the greater extent in not missing out things during testing • Risk Management for identifying the mitigation plans • Product Acceptance Criteria definition should be a measurable one: • 95% of Test Cases should be Passed successfully • Zero Failure on Critical / Fatal & Major type Test Cases • Operational challenges • Classify it as Internal & External Challenges • Strategize separate plans for Corporate & Distributor level challenges • Have training & implementation plan for Pilot & Rollouts • Create Network & understand the latest updates … especially on the Formats for filing the Tax returns
  • 20. Thanks for reading with patience. I always believe my core strength is Delivery (Software) and I have took special focus in learning the GST as part of academic interest by going through the MGL and discussing with consultants. I am sharing my learnings & ideas for transformation based on my experience & passion to deliver. Believe it has provided the necessary insight into the GST, its impacts and how to get your systems ready for the show. Some of the crucial factors are on the GST behaviour with respect to Transactions. Further, these are to be verified & validated for compliance. Based on the response received, I will try to release the next version with deep dive on to Transaction Analysis and Verification & Validation Rules for compliance. Yours, Gans (Ganapathy Subramaniam T.K.) Thank You ganstk@gmail.comSuggestions / feedback 01-March-2017
