CISSP Training Materials CISSP Training Materials CISSP Training Materials I hurried into the local department ICND1 100-105 PDF store to grab1 CISSP Training Materials some last minute Chirsmas gifts.

Chirsmas was beginning ICND1 100-105 PDF to become such a drag. 70-486 pdf I kinda wished that I 70-486 pdf could just sleep through Learnguidepdf ICND1 100-105 PDF Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through all the people to the 300-135 tshoot pdf toy department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and CISSP study guide wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a little boy about 5 holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 her hair and he held her so gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just CCNA 200-125 PDF kept loking over Testprepwell at the little boy Learnguidepdf and wondered who the CISSP Training Materials 300-135 tshoot pdf doll was for. I watched him turn to 70-486 pdf a 300-135 tshoot pdf woman and he called his aunt CISSP Training Materials by name and said, “Are you sure I don’t 300-135 tshoot pdf have enough money?” She 70-486 pdf replied a 300-135 tshoot pdf Learnguidepdf bit impatiently, “You 300-135 tshoot pdf know that you don’t have enough money for it.” The Learnguidepdf aunt told the little boy not ICND1 100-105 PDF to go 300-135 tshoot pdf anywhere 70-486 pdf that she had to go and get some other things and would be back in a few minutes. And Learnguidepdf then she left the aisle. The boy continued to hold the Testprepwell doll. After a 70-486 pdf bit I asked the boy who the Learnguidepdf doll was for. He CCNA 200-125 PDF said, “It Testprepwell Testprepwell is the doll my CISSP study guide Learnguidepdf sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa CCNA 200-125 PDF would bring it. “I told him that maybe CISSP study guide Santa was going to bring CCNA 200-125 PDF it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go where my Testprepwell sister 70-486 pdf is…. CCNA 200-125 PDF I have to give the doll 70-486 pdf to CISSP Training Materials my Mama to take to her. 70-486 pdf “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with the 300-135 tshoot pdf saddest eyes and said, “She was gone to Learnguidepdf be with Jesus. CCNA 200-125 PDF

My Daddy says that Mamma CISSP study guide is CISSP study guide going to have to go be with her.” My heart nearly stopped beating. CISSP Training Materials Then the boy looked at me ICND1 100-105 PDF again and said, “I told my ICND1 100-105 PDF Daddy to tell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her to wait till I got back from the store.” Then ICND1 100-105 PDF he asked me if i wanted to see 300-135 tshoot pdf his picture. I told Testprepwell him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at the 300-135 tshoot pdf front 70-486 pdf of the store.

While he was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of CISSP study guide bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just know it has to be CISSP study guide enough.” So Learnguidepdf I slipped my money in with his and we began to count CISSP Training Materials it ICND1 100-105 PDF Learnguidepdf Testprepwell . Of Testprepwell course it Learnguidepdf was plenty for the doll. He CISSP Training Materials softly said, “Thank you Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then the boy said, “I just 70-486 pdf asked Jesus to give me enough money to buy this doll so Mama CCNA 200-125 PDF can take CISSP study guide it with her to give my sister.

I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my 70-486 pdf shoppong CCNA 200-125 PDF in a ttally Learnguidepdf different spirit than when CISSP Training Materials I had started. And I kept remembering CISSP study guide a story CCNA 200-125 PDF I CISSP study guide had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about 70-486 pdf a drunk driver hitting a car and killing7 a little girl and CISSP study guide the Mother was in serious CCNA 200-125 PDF condition. The family was deciding on CCNA 200-125 PDF CCNA 200-125 PDF Testprepwell whether to remove CISSP Training Materials the life support. Now surely this little boy did not ICND1 100-105 PDF belong with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where the family had disconnected the life support and the young woman Learnguidepdf had died.

Later that CCNA 200-125 PDF day, I could not help myself and I went out CCNA 200-125 PDF and bought aome ICND1 100-105 PDF white CISSP Training Materials roses and Testprepwell took them to Testprepwell the ICND1 100-105 PDF funeral home where the yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, CISSP Training Materials and the picture of the little boy in ICND1 100-105 PDF the store. I left ICND1 100-105 PDF there in tears, Learnguidepdf Testprepwell thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in Learnguidepdf a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.

21st February, 2017: Stock transfer as free Supplies / materials is a practice largely prevailing in the Pharma sector which is not subject to VAT in the current indirect tax structure. As per the estimates of the experts, stock transfer for the promotion accounts about 20-25% cost of an average revenue of a Pharma company which is possibly the highest, comparing other industries. Supply of such goods between two parties as promotion materials / free samples is set to bring under the GST scanner now. If this happens, ‘Free Supplies’ of a Pharma industry will adversely affect the promotion practices of Pharma Industry – mainly B2B segment.

Industry experts and CAs at KDK Softwares organised an internal workshop on assessing ‘Impact of GST on Pharmaceutical Industry in India’. The first base of the analysis was the review of draft of the GST Law.

Mr. Mohit Bhambani, CEO of KDK Softwares (I) Pvt. Ltd. said, “While major concern remains on the GST rates, taxability and valuation of inter-state stock transfer, Provision for imported goods amongst others, for the Pharma companies; GST on ‘free supplies’ is going to directly impact on the cost of promotions of Pharma industry. Free supplies are normally a part of promotions of the drugs/materials and are given to the stockiest, doctors, Government and Private Hospitals and many cases to patients directly. One cannot recover the GST by input tax credit or by any other way. It remains as a cost to the supplier.”

Another aspect of this concern is to value such free supplies before putting a math of GST. As per one report of PWC ‘Decoding the Model GST Low – Impact on the Pharma Sector’ published in June 2016, the valuation of such samples/materials will be as per the GST Valuation Rules, i.e. the transfer value of goods of like kind and quality or the cost of sales.

Another point of free supplies is the case of ‘free services’ which needs to be cleared under GST regime. Pharma companies invariably receive services as promotional activity which are provided from multiple locations and received at multiple locations. There are also situations where it is not possible to determine the location of receipt of a service, for example, broadcasting, advertising, etc. In such situations, the Place of Supply provisions are unclear on which establishment would be regarded as the service provider/ receiver, in order to determine whether the supply is an intra-State or inter-State supply.
