Union Budget for 2017-18 to be presented by Finance Minister on 1st February 2017, is expected to contain significant changes in the tax structure as precursor to implementation of GST and to stimulate economic growth temporarily affected by the demonetization of high denomination currency notes. This year being mid-term of present Government, it may also announce bold steps to implement Government’s policy initiatives which will have far reaching implications. Much talked about GAAR may also find place in the direct tax proposals which may require companies to re-look at their business structure/ transactions in future.

In order to bring greater awareness about the new tax proposals and policy initiatives in the Union Budget 2017-18 and to provide clarifications across the table to all stakeholders, ASSOCHAM is organizing a Post Budget Seminar as per the following schedule:
