TAAI conducts session on GST for its members across India

Travel Agents Association of India (TAAI)  – Western Region, organized  an special educative  session on GST for its members, in Mumbai on 1st June 2017 as the deadline of July 1st 2017 is fast approaching.  The training session on GST was conducted by CA Manish Gadia of GMJ & Co, official GST consultants for TAAI.

“We have organized GST presentations by CA Manish Gadia for our members across the country and  have recently held sessions in Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Chennai, Mumbai and Lucknow.  Sessions in other cities too will be completed before June 30,” said Jay Bhatia, Honorary National Treasurer of TAAI.  After the roll out of GST, next month when the return filing process begins, we are also desirous of addressing detailed issues faced by members”

Implication of GST on ATA as well as tour operators is going to hit the industry and the complexities of return filing shall be a nightmare for the travel and tourism community, added Bhatia,

Presentations  by CA Gadia are giving members more clarity on the tax structure and its procedures. The GST  is a new tax structure and teething problems are expected.

TAAI Western Region Chairman, Sampat Damani, opined  that   more clarity on GST will emerge  when the government issues its second notification.  Said he “with GST, travel agents will have to file 37 returns annually, besides other paper work.” .

“FAITH has been working tirelessly with individual associations “ he added.
