Why Hire SBC For GST Services?

SBC

The Indian tax regime follows a methodology wherein different tax law provisions are applicable to a single transaction which tends to create contentious lawful problems. Currently, the Income-Tax Act 1961 and the GST Laws (CGST Act, 2017) are the major regulations working together in the direct and indirect tax front respectively.

Specific provisions in Income tax and GST, present a variety of chances and problems for any business.

Hence, it is crucial that the businesses gear up and be prepared to avoid any potential litigations.

Sometimes it might be difficult for any organisation to keep up with the timelines under both direct and indirect taxes. The burden to keep up with all the compliances, timelines, notices might become cumbersome. Thus, the need for a reliable and reputable professional service handling all tax related matters arise.

3. Services Offered by SBC:

The majority of the previous indirect taxes collected by the Center and the States have been subsumed by the transaction tax known as GST. Given the size of the shift, there are particular difficulties and complications in its implementation. Businesses have reviewed their tax structures and restructured them to conform to the GST requirements.

We are in an optimum position to assure compliance with the GST law and in providing value-driven services to our clients, thanks to our subject matter expertise in indirect taxation and experience managing GST transition for diverse enterprises.

a. Compliances:

The GST has altered how business is conducted. Every firm must evaluate how the GST would affect different areas of their operations. Doing things not just right but also at the right time is very essential in adhering to tax compliances. Our gamut of services under GST compliances include:

b. GST Refund:

Presenting choices for requesting refunds or rebates, aiding with the creation and submission of required paperwork, and following up with the agency to secure the benefits is also our core competency.

With the objective that the taxes are not exported or embedded in the supply chain, the refund of GST paid on eligible purchases is extended as a refund to exporters and businesses covered under an inverted duty structure (i.e., instances where the rate of tax paid on input is higher than the rate of tax payable on outward supplies made).

We undertake cost-benefit analysis and suggest the best workable options in client-specific facts, including the following:
