GST legislation and procedures can often be misunderstood misinterpreted and understanding case studies in GST application is a practical way of avoiding costly mistakes.  The studies are drawn from actual cases in practice and will cover the requirements of the GST Act, 2014, the GST Regulations and Customs requirements.  This course will cover common GST mistakes and practical GST issues that are often misunderstood. 
Customs have stepped up the audit of GST registered persons and entities as a routine process and have discovered errors in GST-03 which has resulted in over claiming input tax and under-declaring output tax, declaring them in the wrong period and not registering as required under the GST Act, 2014.
