Goods & Services Tax (GST)

Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an indirect tax which was introduced on July 01, 2017. It is applicable throughout India, replacing multiple cascading taxes levied by the central and state governments. It is a comprehensive, multistage, destination based tax.

GST is levied on the supply of goods and/or services. Just like VAT (Value added tax), it is levied on the value added. GST is to be levied at multiple rates ranging from 0 per cent to 28 per cent. The lowest rate of 5% would be for common use items. There are two standard rates of 12 per cent and 18 per cent, which would fall on the bulk of the goods and services. This includes fast-moving consumer goods.

The most common rate in use is the 18% rate bracket.

Compliances Under GST

Registration

Businesses with turnover greater than Rs. 20 Lakhs have to compulsorily get registered under GST. In a few north eastern states, this limit is Rs.10 Lakhs.

Businesses with a turnover of less than the threshold limit mentioned above can also voluntarily register under GST.

Routine Compliances

Maintaining books of accounts with GST related information is a must at this point of time.

While RCM for URD purchases until March 31 2017, RCM for a number of services is still applicable.

E-way Bills : Transporting goods within or outside of the state? An E-way bill will be required and it is to be generated and sent with the transporter.

File Returns

Those with turnover of Upto Rs. 1.5 Crores can file their returns on a quarterly basis. [Other than GSTR 3B]

GSTR3B is a return which will continue to be filed on a monthly basis irrespective of the turnover of the business.
