Why GST Registration is required?

Removing The Cascading Effect Of Tax
GST is a comprehensive tax that was incorporated to bring India under single taxation. Thus it simplified the process and made the products cheaper by eliminating the effect of tax on tax.

Higher Boundaries For GST Registration Under VAT any business with a turnover of Rs 5 lakh was liable to pay VAT(different as per states). However, under GST the limit has been increased to Rs. 20 lakh thus several small traders and service providers are exempt.

Benefit Of Composition For Small Business
With GST small business with turnover between (RS 20 lakh to 75 lah) can benefit from the composition scheme.

Helpful In Regulating Unorganized Sectors
Certain industries like textile and construction were unregulated and unorganized. With GST there is provision for online compliances and payments and helps in getting input credit only if the supplier has accepted the amount.

Who Needs GST Registration?

Every business or corporation that are involved in the buying and selling of goods and services have to register for GST. It is mandatory for companies with annual turnover of more than Rs.20 lakhs (for supply of services) and Rs. 40 lakhs (for supply of goods) to register for GST.

All businesses making interstate outward supplies of goods have to register for a GST as well. The same applies to businesses making taxable supplies on behalf of other taxable persons, example Agents and Brokers.

Also, as per the recent notification, e-commerce sellers/aggregators need not register if total sales are below Rs.20 lakhs.

Components of GST

Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST)

CGST is the amount of tax charged on the intra-state supply of different types of goods and services. This is normally charged and levied by the Central Government. As per CGST, both the Central Governments and State Governments would combine their GST collections and share the revenue equally.

State Goods and Services Tax (SGST)

This is the amount of tax charged on the intra-state supply of different types of goods and services. It is covered under the State Goods and Service Tax Act 2016.

Integrated Goods and Services Tax (IGST)

The revenue collected from IGST will be divided between Central Government and State Government as per the rates specified by the government. IGST is charged on transfer of goods and services from one state to another state.

What are the GST tax rates?

  • Items that are considered basic amenities come under exempt list i.e. they are not taxed.
  • Household necessities and life-saving medicines etc. are taxed at 5%.
  • Products like computers and processed food are taxed at 12%.
  • Hair oil, toothpaste and soaps, capital goods, industrial intermediaries and services are taxed at 18%.

What is Voluntary GST Registration?

Voluntary Registration is an option for people to apply for GST Registration even if he is not liable to get registration under Section 22 or Section 24 of CGST Act, 2017 or SGST/UTGST Act 2017.

Let us see who can apply for voluntary registration.

Certain businesses are required to register mandatorily under GST Act such as:

  • Having turnover more than 20 lakhs
  • Selling inter-state
  • Selling online

Benefits of Voluntary Registration under GST

  • Provide input tax credit to consumers: Since your business is considered a legal entity, you can issue taxable invoices. Buyers, on the other hand, can take input credit on their purchases. This will help enlarge the customer base and increase competitiveness.
  • Take input credit: Voluntary registration allows persons to take input credit on their own purchases and input services like legal fees, consultation fees etc. This will help increase their business margin and profitability.
  • Allows inter-state sales without much restriction: Businesses registered under GST can make inter-state sales without much restriction. Thus, it expands the potential market for SMEs. They can also sell their goods online through the e-commerce platforms.

Disadvantages of Voluntary Registration under GST

  • Tax Liability: Any taxpayer who opts for voluntary registration will be liable to collect taxes from their customers and issue invoice of tax to them. This has to be done irrespective of their turnover.
  • Compulsory Return Filing: Under Voluntary Registration of GST, people who have opted are required to file periodical GST Returns. Any ordinary taxpayer is required to file 3 returns every month, and any composite dealer will be required to file returns quarterly. Along with these returns, taxpayers are also liable to file yearly returns as well.
  • Penalty for Non-Compliance: Any taxpayer who registers for voluntary registration fails to issue proper invoices and furnish timely returns, will be liable to pay penalty under GST for such non-compliance.

Advantages of GST Registration

Tax evasion: The input credit applied to the recipient i.e. manufacturers or service providers only if the specifics are given by the supplier as a return. This supports the suppliers of products and services and thereby tends to control tax avoidance.

Composition plans for small businesses: Most small companies have reduced tax and compliance requirements. Therefore, the choice of opting for composition schemes can be beneficial for small businesses with revenues between 20 and 75 lakh rupees.

Improved efficiency of logistics: Restrictions on the transfer of goods between states have been minimised with the introduction of GST (one country, one tax scheme). Previously, several warehouses had to be managed to prevent the new GST and state entry taxes. This increased the overall cost of operations. As an outcome of GST, warehouses are setting up units at key locations, rather than in every other city.

Regulation of unorganized sector: Earlier textile and construction industries were mostly unorganized and not regulated. Under GST, arrangements for online payments and compliances have been made to regulate such sectors and keep it more organized.

Removes the cascading effect of tax: GST is a systematic process of taxation and has been formed to remove the cascading impact of tax. It has simplified the process and made the products cheaper by eliminating the effect of tax on tax. The cost of a tax is transferred close to the customer who supports the sector by improved cash flows and also the working capital management.

Transparency in taxation: GST is a clear tax structure where there are no hidden costs or taxes. This has also helped in decreasing the cost of conducting businesses.

Higher limit for registration: Earlier under VAT structure, companies with a turnover of more than 5 lakh rupees were obliged to pay VAT. The threshold in the GST system has now been raised to Rs. 20 lakhs. This frees smaller businesses and service providers.

Disadvantages of GST Registration

Short term challenges for business: The change towards GST has disrupted the working capital of companies in their starting phase, owing to the input credit lock-up.

Online taxation system: Under the GST system, the entire system has been digitalized. It has become a technically far-reaching transition that is challenging for smaller firms to embrace.

Multiple registrations: For organizations with branches in more than one state in India, it is extremely tedious to comply with the GST regulations. They will have to register with each state and adhere to compliances.

Numerous GST types: The concept of one country, one tax majorly affects the compliance system of GST which includes CGST, SGST, and IGST.

Distribution of revenue: Revenue sharing for products and services specified in the corresponding list has become a point of conflict.
