The introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a remarkable step undertaken by the government in the reformation of indirect taxation in the country. GST will combine almost all the existing taxes and will simplify the administration of tax system in India and reduce the complications too. 

"GST will offer a great opportunity to organizations of all sizes and sectors to transform and enhance their shift into the digital economy. However, during this transition, one of the biggest challenges for the small businesses and traders will be to understand the enormity of GST and adopt real time implementation of it"

Previously, the traders, manufacturers, and businessmen had to pay several taxes for every activity that took place in the company, right from purchasing raw materials to selling them to the end users. Here, GST comes to the rescue as it permits the companies a smooth and free movement of goods across borders. GST will not only change the way large businesses/companies operate but will also alter the functioning of smaller businesses and traders. It will offer a great opportunity to organizations of all sizes and sectors to transform and enhance their shift into the digital economy. However, during this transition, one of the biggest challenges for the small businesses and traders will be to understand the enormity of GST and adopt real time implementation of it. Therefore, there comes the need of a comprehensive IT solution that would enable smooth implementation of GST and will help businesses in their digital transformation.
