I’m recommending fly to some small and medium businesses located in India thanks to the new MAA deployment region. One issue that’s come up is the lack of Goods & Services Tax (GST) invoicing.
At some point in 2017, India’s tax code was updated to charge GST on foreign service providers, to provide a level playing field with Indian service providers who have to collect taxes from customers. Since Fly is not an Indian entity, GST has to be paid by the consuming Indian business entity.
GST invoicing in India will require Fly to register under GST in India and accept GST numbers from customers. This would come with the advantage that Fly can claim input tax credits for services received by it from Indian entities.
I know this is a very long shot, but I thought I’d post about in anyway.
