He said, inspite of all the challenges, the Goods & Services Tax (GST) will be benefiting the various sectors of Central India due to its geographical location and which inturn will benefit the common man and the growth of the region.

“Proper planning and professional advise is of utmost important to avoid any violations by the trade and industry. GST has proven results in multiple countries across the globe and with time it will have a positive impact in India as well,” he claimed.

“Though GST is a very big opportunity for the profession but CAs are looking at it as a responsibility as well for which various social initiatives are being taken,” Jotwani disclosed.

Under anti-profiteering, the benefit is compulsorily required to pass on to the consumers failing which heavy penalty will be imposed on such person who do not follow the same,” he cautioned.
