The Union Budget 2014-15 will be presented in the Parliament on 10th July 2014. Since this will be the first budget by the new Government, there could be shift in the direction of tax policy and tax structure which may have impact on all tax payers and significant impact on certain businesses. The Tax Administration Reform Commission has also submitted its first report and some of its recommendations may find place in the Budget proposals. Government may also announce long term tax reform initiatives like implementation of GST and taxation of cross border transactions and investments.  
In order to bring greater awareness about the new tax proposals in the Union Budget 2014-15 and to provide clarifications across the table to all stakeholders, ASSOCHAM is organizing a National Conference on Post Budget Discussion as per the following schedule:
