While the Union Budget 2019-20 proposes a slew of structural reforms to address the issues concerning the economy, the most striking and noteworthy proposal is the introduction of amnesty scheme under Sabka Vishwas (Legacy Dispute Resolution) Scheme, 2019, for settlement of the pre-GST litigations. The Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her maiden Budget speech expressed concern over the huge pending litigation from the pre-GST regime. More than Rs 3.75 trillion (in 150,000 cases) are said to be blocked in litigation in Service tax and Excise.

The benefits proposed to be extended under the amnesty scheme are unprecedented and is likely to attract many takers. However, the amnesty scheme is marred by multiple ambiguities giving rise to multiple interpretations. Considering this, the industry must tread lightly while analysing and exploring the option under the amnesty scheme.The FM also announced several measures that would lead to simplifications. As a next step towards the digitization, E-Invoicing mechanism was proposed, eventually eliminating the need of E-way bill in future.

Taxsutra and ELP are pleased to invite you to a webinar on GST Proposals and Legacy Dispute Resolution Scheme. In our special webinar, Mr. Rohit JainMr. Gopal Mundhra and Mr. Adarsh Somani (Partners – ELP) will discuss the benefits, challenges and issues under the Legacy Dispute Resolution Scheme alongwith the implications of the key GST amendments proposed in the Budget.
