Why need for Specialized Seminar on Implementation of GST in Insurance Industry?

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a ground-breaking reform for the Indian economy’s indirect tax regime. GST will change the tax architecture between the state and the centre.

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a value added tax that will replace all the indirect taxes levied on goods and services by the government, both central and states, once it is implemented.

The basic idea of this taxation reform is to create a single, cooperative and undivided Indian market to make the economy stronger and powerful.

GST is a value-added tax, which will eliminate the cascading effect or double-taxation effect on the cost of goods and services down the value chain. GST will certainly impact the structure, incidence, computation of indirect taxes leading to a comprehensive restoration of the current tax regime in the country.

The insurance industry of India consists of 53 insurance companies of which 24 are in life insurance business and 29 are non-life insurers. The insurance industry is growing at fast pace. The domestic life insurance industry registered 22.55 per cent growth for new business premium in financial year 2015-16, generating a revenue of Rs 1,35,546 Crores largely due to the high growth in the group single premium policy and the non-life insurance premium market grew at a CAGR of 12.1 per cent over FY04-16 from Rs. 22,658 Crores in FY04 to Rs. 1,20,000 Crores in FY17 (estimated).
