The service tax has been increased from 12.36% to 14%!!
Startups already face difficulty in charging service tax because customers do not want to bear the cost.
So if a service/product costs Rs.1000, instead of adding service tax on top of it, most companies make Rs.1,000 inclusive of tax by making the cost Rs.890 + 12.36% service tax = Rs.1,000 to the customer.
Now with 14% service tax one can charge the customers only Rs.877.2 on a Rs.1,000 product

Five Impact of union budget on my Bangalore based startup UNICOM- Global B2B platform for IT industry
1. Service tax raised from 12.36% to 14% wef Apr 1. This will result in our customer fee increasing marginally. This is not expected to impact our sales.
2. Corporate tax is reduced from 30% to 25% for next four years. This will result in 10-20 additional jobs within unicom every year. Not to mention that hikes for our colleagues can be more too
3. Mudra bank may not be needed by Unicom. Other startups need them more
4. Less TDS for employees if they invest more on tax saving schemes
5. Reduction in tax from 25% to 10 % for our clients who provide technical services is a welcome news for us. Clients with more income means win win for us.
Meanwhile as the discussion on union budget continues I wanted to know what is the best way to get your book reviewed other than the reviews that you get in flipkart or amazon. Is there any site which is particularly meant for reviewing the books? and what about the bloggers what is the best way to reach them? Here is the flipkart and amazon reviews:

** RE-POSTING **
Dear brilliant entrepreneurs and to all the experienced start-up gurus, I have a quick question to ask:
Is there a need in our start-up ecosystem to collaborate with experts in crafting targeted power-point (PPT) presentation with kick-ass story telling? Or is it still ok to be driven by entrepreneurs in their individual capacity (closely guarded for strategic reasons)? What is your experience (related to power-point presentation) as a part of start-up? Will you be open for availing such services by hiring a 3rd part agency?
I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on this, as we all know how important effective presentation decks are in creating an impression.Please give your inputs and feedback, will be of huge help.
