My takeaway from the NYT interview, in which he mows down Sessions--Sessions!--is that Putin remains the only ally Trump has never betrayed.

Retweeted by dubashThere's no crying in cricket.100*Are you watching the cricket semifinal? @umanathtrip I was hoping for 220. But doesn't look like it. Counting on Kaur though.Some very lovely batting going on.Sportswomen from Hyd -- Mithali Raj, Sania Mirza, Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu.Odds seem to strongly favor SC declaring privacy as a FR. I doubt any submission by Union of India is going to change that. 1/

@indianreagan (In this case though, before GST, Excise & VAT together amounted to a rate of 18.16% so pretty similar to 18% at 1st stage.) @gsircar And if the client is expected/counted on to report in both cases why not let the lawyer collect GST like a… @gsircar With RC -- Client reports and forwards GST.

But legal services are legal services are legal services all at 18%.The explanation is why burden the chaiwalla with collecting GST. Let the burden fall on the big company.Interestingly one of the most common example for reverse charge mechanism scenario is a large company buying from a small chaiwalla.Well, well, well : ) And I wonder which professional group probably has the best lobbyists? get the reverse charge mechanism for taxi drivers and small traders, but how hard is to figure out 18% on one type of thing you offer? @indianreagan I would pay for grapevine newsletter. Reporting is woeful on certain topics. (Btw, check out Arvind Datar on GST on Youtube.)Onus of paying GST on legal services is with clients. 6/6 should lawyers avoid this rather simple burden? How hard is to calculate 18%? I don't know the reason. I can't figure it out. 5/nAnd if you are a lawyer, and you offer advice worth Rs. 1000. You don't collect GST. It's the client who reports and pays the govt. 4/nYou offer brilliant advice worth Rs. 1000. And you tack on Rs. 180 (GST 18%). You bill the client Rs. 1,180. Simple. 3/nPretend you are management consultant. (In fact that is how you become a management consultant, by pretending to be one.) 2/nWeirdest GST story that I don't get.
