Invitation to attend Webinar on recent decision of Maharashtra Appellate Authority in the case of Vserv, May 29th 2019 10:00 – 11:00 am

May 29, 2019 @ 10:00 am to 11:00 am

A significant decision has recently been made by the Maharashtra Appellate Authority for Advance Rulings (“AAAR”) in the case of Vserv Global Private Limited (“Vserv”).  The AAAR has upheld the Advance Ruling order of Vserv, which held the activity under a contract with the overseas customer to be “intermediary”. This decision of the Maharashtra authority is likely to have serious implications on the entire ITeS sector in India.  It could in effect result in denying export status to the back-office operations set-up in India and result in them being uncompetitive as a result of an additional GST cost of 18% of the value of services. The Ruling is likely to open up a Pandora’s box of disputes on the concept of ‘intermediary’.

In this backdrop, NASSCOM is organising a Webinar on May 29th 2019 (i.e, Wednesday) from 10.00 am – 11.00 am (IST), to discuss the potential impact of the ruling on the member companies and way forward.

It is our pleasure to invite you to this important webinar. The agenda and the registration link are appended below for your kind reference.
