    Came into effect

    Hi, I am new in this forum and I am not a teacher.

    I would like to ask a question:

    There are less than 7 months before GST came into effect on 1st April 2015.

    Is "came" correct in the above sentence? Or should it be "come"?

    Thank you in advance for your comments.

    Welcome to the forum, Joseph.

    It should be '...comes into effect'. The present tense is used for future events.

    You don't need to say you're not a teacher unless you are trying to answer a question.

    You're welcome, but there is no need to write a new post just to say "Thank you". It makes us think there is new information or a follow-up question and we spend time opening the thread. Simply click on the "Thank" button at the bottom left-hand corner of any post you find helpful.
