How GST will change your online shopping experience from July 1
With less than a week left for the rollout of Goods and Services Tax (GST), e-commerce retailers are trying their best to finish their pending stock. They are luring in customers by giving discount offers ranging from 25 per cent to 90 per cent.
But thatâ€™s going to change after July 1 when the GST comes into force. Most of your online shopping will get expensive after the GST. Hereâ€™s how:
Tax collected at source
Currently, e-commerce websites do not collect tax in any form. Under the GST, they will collect tax at a fixed rate of 1 per cent while paying to the sellers listed on their websites. This is likely to impact prices and make your online shopping more expensive. Though, the move has been deferred, it is likely to come in force at a later date.
Under the GST, your goods will reach you faster as the retailers will not have to file a separate paperwork for each state. Currently, for example, if your seller is in Bangalore and you are based in Delhi, your seller will file a separate bill for logistics, another one for the state tax, etc. Under the GST, the extra paperwork imposed by states will end and make deliveries faster.
The end of freebies and discounts?
Used to mega discounts and freebies? There may not be many in future because they will attract an additional tax. Also, since an e-commerce company will have to pay the tax on the price it has purchased the goods from the supplier, it will not be worth its while to offer discount in many cases.
Shopping from global players
If you shop from portals like Amazon.com and Ebay.com, they transact in foreign currency. The government has yet to come up with clarification of rules for such operators.
Returns and cancellations will get difficult
Returns and cancellations are going to face challenges. E-commerce companies have a return or cancellation rate of nearly 18%. While collecting tax at source, e-commerce companies will have to bear the tax amount on their own and only later get refund from the government in case of returns and cancellations. The companies will face a major cash-flow disadvantage due to returns and cancellations.

The Risks of Cloud Computing
Keep your IT agile and eliminate cloud computing risks with Cloud IBN
CloudIBN today highlighted on, how enterprises can mitigate the risks associated with cloud computing.
Cloud computing proffers organisations the ability to trim down onIT infrastructure cost. It will also allow enterprises to focus on increase in innovation and will help them streamline processes. This can bring in advantages like very satisfied customer, more reliable backup and increase in scalability. It has tremendous benefits to offer to the IT industry but along with it comes few risks and security concerns.
Cloud computing have a lot to offer to the enterprises, but along with it there will be new risks and security concerns. As IT services are contracted by an external provider, so there will be a great need for changing the control approach and more defined governance to ensure flexibility and security.
Cloud is an off-premise infrastructure where users outsource their data IT service to a third party. This actually means users are giving their data to someone else to look after. Here it becomes a trust issue. Cloud providers will try their best, by performing all updates as well as maintenance for assuring security.
The downside is someone else is responsible to keep your data safe. Like all other solutions, you will have to decide the level of risk with which you can deal comfortably.).
Enterprises must adjust their procedures and policies and plan effective strategies like data masking to mitigate risks and address assurance issues when it comes to cloud computing. For many organisations, the challenge is maintaining right balance between mitigating cloud security risks and keeping the enterprise nimble.
Nevertheless today cloud computing offers greater security as compared to past. More over the centralization of the IT services that comes with cloud leads the overall system towards greater stabilization of processes and also makes the implementation of protective measure easy.Actually the small and mid size organisations can expect higher level of security as their IT services are handed over in the experienced hands.
Companies planning to enter into cloud must design a criteria catalogue defining their protective goals and security requirements. This will prove to be a solid security concept while operating and migrating IT services.
