The Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be rolled out from June 30 midnight. The GST regime will unify Asia’s third largest economy into a common market, eliminating a string of central and state levies.
 
Once GST gets implemented, companies must file a complete return of their sales invoices by the 10th of the following month, with a second of their purchase invoices by the 15th. A third return would calculate their tax bill.
