The Income Tax Act, 1967 was drafted during a time where businesses were conducted out of brick and mortar premises and the idea of a person being able to generate income without a physical presence seemed impossible. However, traditional businesses are now making way to the digital economy where it is possible to conduct international trade out of one’s bedroom or generate income via one’s mobile phone! In the first half of this course, we will consider how the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1967 apply to these modern day businesses and how these entities should account for taxes. In the second half of the course, we will consider the topic of E-invoicing, which was introduced during Budget 2023 and subsequently in Budget 2024 with a revised deadline, which was brought forward to 01 July 2025.
