Quote on budget expectations by start-ups - Himanshu Meena, Founder & CEO Parsel

"Given the current economic scenario, we expect strong measures & economy boosters from the Union Budget to restore confidence and spur growth. Mr. Jaitley's announcement on the introduction of entrepreneur friendly tax regime for startups is very encouraging. However we expect the budget to exempt startups from direct and indirect taxes which will help new businesses find their ground faster and help create a conducive ecosystem for entrepreneurs in the country. The implementation of long awaited nationwide GST will also help in simplifying the entire tax structure, thereby cutting business costs and helping to generate more revenues. Lastly measures such as minimizing time consuming procedures and assuring minimum interference from the government will go a long way in promoting the startup culture in the country." Himanshu Meena, Founder & CEO Parsel
