“GST has opened up opportunities for businesses in over 160 countries and helped them move beyond the physical constraints to expand exponentially by harnessing digital prowess,” said Mr. D.S.

Arun Subramanian, Vice President, Globalization Services, SAP India said, “SAP sees a huge responsibility to get India Inc. compliant with the upcoming law and is thus working in close collaboration with customers across industries, the overall ecosystem (including GSTN) to provide solutions for a smooth transition to GST.”
