GST Queries

Under the GST Law, any business whose turnover is more than Rs 40 Lakhs is required to register for GST. However, the threshold limit for registration for Service Providers is Rs 20 lakhs. If you live in the North Eastern Sates or in Hilly States and sell Goods or services then you need to register for GST if your turnover is more than Rs. 10 Lakhs.

GST Registration is not compulsory if your business turnover is less than Rs 40 lakhs per year in the case of sellers of Goods and less than Rs 20 lakhs per year in the case of service providers or Rs.10 lakhs if your business is based in North Eastern or Hilly States. However, the GST law states that certain categories of suppliers are required to compulsorily register irrespective of their turnover. These are, online sellers, inter- state suppliers of good or services including exhibitors and consultants; and Non- Resident suppliers of goods or services.

Yes, GST registration can be done online by logging on to the GST portal.

The person is required to get himself registered under GST within 30 days from the date when turnover exceeds Rs.40 Lakhs or Rs. 10 Lakhs (for north east & hill states) or Rs.20 Lakhs for service providers. GST Registration usually takes 2-5 working days.

  • Find the GST rate applicable for goods or services by finding out HSN or SAC code

  • Calculate the amount of GST paid on purchases to claim it as Input Tax Credit
  • Output Tax – Input Tax Credit = GST Payable

As per the GST act, every registered person must maintain books of accounts for a period of 6 years i.e. At least for 72 months for the particular GST return filed.

For accounting purposes, you need to maintain Sales register containing Sales GST compliant invoices and purchase register containing purchase GST compliant invoices.

  • You can set off the input tax credit paid on goods or services against the liability of GST.
  • You can make interstate sales (from one state to another) without any restrictions. (Registration is compulsory for Inter – State suppliers irrespective of threshold limit of Rs 40 lakhs or 20 lakhs or 10 Lakhs)
  • Businesses registered under GST are allotted a unique GSTIN, which they are required to quote on the invoices issued.

A person or a business is liable to file GST returns, if he or it is registered for GST or even if they are not registered but meet the threshold requirements for registration. This means that even if you are not registered but are liable to be registered you will eventually be expected to register and pay the GST with penalty. To understand how soon you should register once you meet the threshold requirements you can go here.

Input Tax Credit means reducing the taxes paid on inputs or purchases against taxes to be paid on output.
For Example, suppose if you are a manufacturer and your output tax liability or GST Liability is Rs 500 and taxes paid on purchases is Rs 300 then Taxes paid on purchases i.e. Rs 300 shall be adjusted against the output tax liability of RS 500 and you only need to deposit Rs 200.

Small businesses having annual turnover less than Rs 1.5 core (75 lakhs for North Eastern States) can opt for composition scheme. Taxpayers under composition scheme are liable to pay nominal tax rates based on the type of Business. Composition dealers are required to file one quarterly return (GSTR-4) instead of two monthly returns filed by a normal taxpayer and are not allowed to claim input tax credit on the purchases made and shall issue bill of supply not tax invoice.

  • Manufacturer of Pan Masala, Tobacco, or Ice Cream
  • Casual Taxable Person
  • Inter State Sellers
  • E-Commerce operators

  • Traders and Manufactures (Goods) – 0.5 % CGST + 0.5 % SGST = 1%
  • Restaurant Services (not serving alcohol) – 2.5 % CGST + 2.5 % SGST = 5%

Exports are treated as Zero rated Supplies under the GST Law. No Tax is payable on exports of goods or services however taxes paid on purchases can be claimed as input Tax Credit and same shall be refunded to the exporters.

On Receiving notice, the first step is to prepare a reconciliation sheet of Input Tax Credit claimed as per GSTR-3B and shown in your GSTR-2A. After Reconciling your Invoice details as per GSTR-3B and GSTR-2A if you found any invoice not coming in your GSTR-2A then you should coordinate with your supplier and ask them to show your invoice in their GST returns. If supplier denies to revise his GST return then you have to reverse the input tax credit taken with applicability of 24% p.a. interest.
