Benefits of GST Registration

    • Elimination of Multiple Taxes

One of the benefits of GST is the elimination of multiple indirect taxes that existed earlier. So many taxes have been replaced. Taxes like excise, octroi, sales tax, Service tax, CENVAT, turnover tax etc are not applicable anymore and all those have come under common tax called GST.

    • Saving More Money

GST applicability has resulted in the elimination of double charging in the system for a common man. Through this, the price of goods and services has reduced & helping the common man saving more money.

    • Ease of business

GST brought the concept of “One Nation One Tax”. That unhealthy competition that existed earlier among the States has benefited businesses wishing to do interstate business.

    • Cascading Effect Reduction

From manufacturing to consumption, GST is applicable at all stages. It is providing tax credit benefits at every stage in the chain. In the earlier scenario, at every stage, the margin used to get added and tax was paid on the whole amount. Under GST the businesses are taking benefit of Input Tax Credit and tax is being paid on the amount of value addition only. GST has reduced the cascading effect of tax thereby reducing the cost of the product.

    • More Employment

Because GST has reduced the cost of products, the demand, for some – if not all, products have increased. With the increase in demand, to meet the increase in supply, the employment graph has started going up.

    • Increase in GDP

Higher the demand, higher will be the production. This results in a higher Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

    • Reduction in Tax Evasion

Goods and services tax is a single tax that includes various earlier taxes
and has made the system efficient with fewer chances of corruption and Tax Evasion.

    • More Competitive Product

Manufacturing has become more competitive with GST eliminating the cascading effect of the tax, inter-state tax, high logistics cost. Bringing competitive as GST will address the cascading effect of the tax, inter-state tax, high logbenefits to the businessman and consumer.

    • Increase in Revenue

Under the GST regime, 17 indirect taxes have been replaced into a single tax. The increase in product demand means a higher tax revenue for state and central government.

What is a Voluntary GST Registration?

A person who is not liable, still files for GST application, can get registered. However, then, it becomes essential for him to file Returns, after getting a GST number. Else, he will have to pay a penalty, as applicable.

You can choose to register for GST voluntarily too.

Especially if you are wishing to claim Input Tax Credit. Even if you are not liable to be registered, you can be registered voluntarily. After registration, you will also have to comply with regulations as applicable to those required to be registered.

Benefits of registering voluntarily under GST

  • Take Input Tax Credit,
  • Operate interstate without restrictions,
  • Have the option to register on e-commerce websites,
  • Have a competitive advantage compared to other rival businesses,
  • Fewer hassles and better compliance with government licensing agencies,
  • Focus on Your Business Growth.

Input Tax Credit or ITC

Inputs are all those goods that went into creating the finished products provided to the final consumer. Businesses are charged GST on goods/services that are used as inputs. The ITC mechanism allows GST registered businesses to receive refunds on the GST paid for purchasing all inputs. This helps prevent cascading taxation effect, which was the primary reason behind introduction of the GST.

For instance: GST payable on the supply of the final product of a manufacturer is Rs. 850 and the GST paid on inputs is Rs. 725. The manufacturer can claim the Rs. 725 as ITC. This brings the net tax payable at the time of supply to Rs. 125 only (Rs. 850 – Rs. 725).

Under the previous indirect tax regime of levy of Service Tax, VAT, and Excise – a lot of input tax credit was not properly utilized.

Who are eligible to claim Input Tax Credit?

ITC is available only to those entities who have registered under the GST Act. Only GST registered businesses can claim ITC on the tax paid for the purchase of any business relevant inputs.

Who cannot claim ITC?

Input Tax Credit can be claimed only for business purposes. It is not available for goods or services exclusively used for:

  • Personal use,
  • Exempt supplies,
  • Supplies for which ITC is specifically not available.

Apart from the above, there are some other cases where ITC will be reversed. Such as Credit Note issued to ISD, Non-payment of invoices within 180 days, assets bought partly or wholly for exempted supplies or personal use, etc.

Conditions for claiming Input Tax Credit

  1. GST invoice showing details of tax paid is necessary,
  2. The goods on which GST has been paid have been received by the consumer,
  3. The applicant has filed the relevant tax returns,
  4. The supplier had paid the due tax to the government,
  5. The ITC applicant is registered under GST,
  6. If goods were received in installments, ITC can be claimed only after the final lot has been received.

ITC cannot be claimed if:

  • Composition tax registered entities paying GST on inputs,
  • If depreciation has been claimed on the tax part of a capital good,
  • On goods not used as inputs such as supplies for personal use,
  • On goods on which ITC is not applicable under the GST Act (exempted goods).

Input tax credits can be used as:

  • CGST input tax credits are allowed to be used to pay CGST and IGST,
  • SGST input tax credits are allowed to be used to pay SGST and IGST,
  • IGST input tax credits are allowed to be used to pay CGST, SGST, and IGST.

What is GSTIN?

  • GSTIN is a unique 15-digit alphanumeric code that is allotted to each Firm/Company/Individual, who are registered under GST.
  • The government has ensured that everything under GST is digital so that there is maximum transparency with minimum corruption.
  • The first 2 digits of the GSTIN represent the state code which is given as per the 2011 census.
  • The next 10 digits are the PAN number of the entity.
  • The 14th digit is Z by default.
  • The 15th or the last digit is the Checksum digit. It comes, automatically, as a result of the calculation of the other 14 digits.

Factors To Consider In Company Name Selection

A Casual taxable person is one who has a registered business in some State in India but wants to supply to some other site in which he/she does not have any fixed place of business. He needs to register in the State from where he is looking to supply as a Casual taxable person.

Below categories of suppliers are to apply to GST number compulsorily, irrespective of turnover:

(e) Input service distributor (ISD),

(f) Selling on e-commerce platforms,

(g) You are an e-commerce operator,

(h) You supply online information and database access or retrieval services from outside India to an unregistered person in India,

(i) You are responsible for deducting TDS

Yes. But it doesn’t need to be a current account. It can also be a savings bank account or personal bank account. If the business has just started and only a personal savings account is there, then you can provide the same. And once you are registered, you can apply for the new current bank account based on the GST Certificate.

No. Businesses operating from a residential address can also be registered with the GST. Only the proof of address like electricity bill copy with the NOC or sale deed or rent agreement copy etc. is required.

He needs to have dual GST registration in U.P. and Delhi, respectively. A business with multiple business verticals in a state may obtain a separate registration for each vertical.

Do I need to file GST Returns if I have applied for GST Registration voluntarily?

Every entity registered under GST, whether mandatorily or voluntarily, is to file the relevant GST Returns in the manner prescribed and within the time limit prescribed for the same.

In India, Dual GST has been implemented. That means both the Centre and State governments levy it, simultaneously, on a common tax base. The entities providing an intra-state supply of goods and/or services are to apply GST under the Central GST by the Centre. And the businesses operating within one state are to pay SGST (or the State GST). And the Integrated GST (or the IGST) is being levied and administered by the Centre on every inter-state supply of goods and services.

GST is accrued in the state where the final consumption of the product/service is taking place. So that the final consumer bears the tax. And the tax amount is submitted to the State government, where this final consumer is based.

It is imposed at each stage of sale or purchase of goods or services based on the input tax credit method.

HSN (Harmonized System of Nomenclature) or SAC (Services Accounting Code) refers to Goods and Services code. It is a code given to a product of detailed classification under the GST Act. With LegalRaasta, our expert CAs will help you choose the correct HSN or SAC Code after getting details about your business.

Harmonised System of Nomenclature (HSN) code is used for the classification of goods. A 2-digit code is to be used, in the invoices, by the Taxpayers with a turnover of above Rs. 1.5 crores but below Rs. 5 crores. While the taxpayers whose turnover is over Rs. 5 crores are to use 4-digit code. Taxpayers with turnover below Rs. 1.5 crores are not required to mention any HSN Code. Services are classified in the Services Accounting Code (SAC).

Your buyer would prefer to work with as seller with the highest rating.

When the beneficiary settles the Government obligation rather than the provider. Usually, because the supplier is selling goods, the tax is levied upon the supplier. However, in certain cases, the tax is levied upon the buyer. And the buyer pays GST directly to the government. This is called a reverse charge. Under this, the responsibility to pay tax gets reversed.

The applicability of RCM is when the supplier is not registered with GST and is making a supply to a GST registered taxpayer. In such a situation, the registered taxpayer is required to remit the applicable GST as a reverse charge to the government.
The government has also notified a list on which the reverse charge will be applicable.

ISD is like a head office that receives the tax invoices of input service. And assigns the credit of tax paid by them to the units proportionately. The ISD registration is somewhat different from the normal registration.
