Tesla plans to raise funds to tackle cash crunch.

Tesla Motors plans to raise additional money this year to help fund development and production of its new Model 3 sedan and build out a massive battery factory, the company said on Wednesday. The electric carmaker plans to raise money through an equity or debt offering, it said in a filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Some of that money could also support Tesla's planned acquisition of its money-losing sister company, Solar City Corp.

Federal Reserve may stay cool on September.

Even if US companies kept up their rapid pace of hiring in August, there is still enough resistance among policymakers at the Federal Reserve to delay an interest-rate hike at the bank's September meeting. At that rate, 2016 would be on pace for more than 2 million new jobs.


By far, the GST amendment will be the biggest step the country has taken in ensuring economic integration. While the draft law comes with a promise of economic growth, it poses several critical pitfalls that can adversely affect businesses in the country.

GST: Great or Gruesome

The trust deficit between the Citizens of India and the Government of India has plummeted to new depths when one reads the Draft GST Law (in case you have not read the draft laws, please click here to read it). In one fell swoop, a swathe of businesses is staring at their death knell – as instead of being the promising vehicle for growth, GST has the potential to destabilize all that is good. On the bright side, this is still a draft law – and corrections can be applied, so that GST indeed becomes the Greatest Simplified Tax regime, and the biggest economic event of Independent India. It has all the ingredients to become so. Why then, am I sounding the danger bells?

The most critical cause of failure of GST will be in the transference of responsibility and liability of tax remittance to the customers of a supplier (Section 16(11) (c)). Basically, the law postulates that if a particular supplier has failed to comply with the law correctly – by furnishing the correct returns

(Section 27(3)) and/or making the correct payment (Section 27(2)) – then its’ customers cannot avail the input credit, and if given, it will be reversed.

The origin of this provision lies in the history of tax avoidance through false representations by a small section of businesses[i] and the fact that it was not feasible for the Government to systematically contain this problem. With the framing of this law, the Government hopes that the market will self-weed out the bad eggs – which is not wrong in theory. What is wrong is not understanding the cascading consequences of doing this in practice – and the mayhem it will create. While the effort for driving compliance will reduce, the consequential effect of businesses shutting down, and therefore collections going down, have not been treated seriously enough.

What exactly is the problem?
Let us understand this by visualizing a scenario.
Assume Business A operates on a retained margin in the range of 8-9% [ii].Because it is (say) an SME, it buys without access to good credit terms. So, it has purchased goods worth 50,000, and with GST of 20%, it has paid Rs. 60,000 for the invoice. It now sells this at Rs. 55,000, with an applicable GST of 11,000 – so raises an invoice of Rs. 66,000 on Business B.
Business B is a distributor, operating on a margin of (say) 2% [iii]
Now, Business B is concerned that the input credit of Rs. 11,000 may or may not available to it, in case Business A is negligent in its compliance.

Are You present in Digital World

Are you present in Digital World?

To say that the world is changing would be like saying that the sun rises in the morning and sets in the evening; nothing new.
To say it is changing in unimaginable ways would be like saying that the sun has risen…from the south and will set in the north! That, is certainly new, very, very new!
Something similar is happening in the world of marketing and communication. What we took for granted has either disappeared or is slowly going that way and what we couldn’t imagine has started to appear in the horizon.
Market Presence a while back was meant for the biggies in the industry. You ought to have deep pockets and could have the biggest hoardings, signs and sounds, money could buy. Despite its size, what lacked was the response of the target audience and ways and means of modifying one’s marketing campaigns. All of these

took months if not years from inception to finale.
And then came the disrupter, Digital media. Things happen here at the speed of light from inception of ideas to final delivery to gauging results to fine-tuning campaigns. Old world styled media offices with huge spaces, big desks, gargantuan staff and humongous ego got a boot – at the speed of light! A laptop which sits pretty on your table top is the only thing in the name of infrastructure. Sit anywhere on the planet, you still have access to the eye of the storm and can let loose a volley of creative arrows. No age , experience bar, simply creative minds!
What then differentiates you from the rest? Presence! And surprisingly a presence which cannot be said with any degree of confidence, to be stable. Today it may be ranked # 1 by the search engines (Soon Apps taking that place!); tomorrow it may disappear entirely from the face of the digital world! With nothing but uncertainty being the new certainty, one has to be, by force of circumstances, creative, fast and utterly responsive.
Presence (and by extension, response) in the world of digital marketing is brought about in various ways including an extremely responsive website, social media, personalized mobile phone applications such as WhatsApp, google chat etc, flyers and the likes. These by no means are the only means. The digital space is such that every day some or the other new technology comes along which guarantees eyeballs with lesser constraints than before and a far greater reach.
