Predominant GST registration and its importance in India
Here, in this blog we have discussed about the predominant GST registration and their importance to be known by each and every person. GST stands for goods and service tax. The one hundred and twenty second amendment bill of the Indian constitution introduced the National Goods and Service Tax from 1st July 2017. This is officially known to be the constitution act, 2016. Consequently, the prominent reason behind the introduction of predominant GST is the tax burden that falls both on companies and the customers. Regarding to the current tax system, there are several taxes added at each and every stage of the supply chain, without taking credit for taxes that are paid at the earlier stages.
As a result, the end user cost does not clearly shows the actual cost of the product that are sold and purchased and how much tax was applied. This structure remains quite complex and inefficient one. Moreover, Gst will integrate more taxes into single unit, which can be applied to the sales and the purchases of the goods and services, with deductions for taxes paid at the earlier supply chain stages. This structure remains easier to be tracked by both government and the business people.
Predominant tax system:
The indirect tax system in India is extremely a complex one. It has been felt that this tax structure and the general legal framework reduced many entrepreneurs and also hinders the growth of many business. India, being a single country facing many internal barriers to administrate trade, commerce and the business of the dominant tax structures. Likewise, VAT implementation also helped a lot in preparing the groundwork that is essential for bringing out the next level of tax reforms called Goods and service tax (GST). Moreover, It has been seen as an efficient tax system and this affects the structuring of the various operations. Thus, the industries are required to analyze the provisions of the GST Law and its impact in their business.
Predominant GST filing:
Specifically, predominant GST law implies obtaining a unique number from the concerned tax authorities for the registered business entity for collecting tax on behalf of the government. In fact, Section 22(3) of the CGST Act, says that where a business carried on by a taxable person registered is transferred, the Transfee or the successor would be liable to be registered with effect from such transfer or succession and he will have to obtain a fresh registration with effect from the date of such transfer or succession.
Section 22(4) states that if a business is transferred as an order of a High Court, or otherwise pursuit to –
1. Sanction of scheme
2. Arrangement for amalgamation
3. De-merger of two or more companies,
As a result, the transferee would be liable to obtain registration from the date on which the Registrar of Companies issues a certificate of incorporation giving effect to such order of the High Court or Tribunal.
Why you will pay GST?
Chiefly, it is important to note that there are two categories of businesses that comes under the predominant GST. The first one is that you have to register the business alone. The other category is that you will have to register as well as pay taxes. These categories are decided based on the turn over which is being calculated using the GSTIN. Similarly, The GST act in the clause (3) of the defining section 2 defines all the aggregate value of all the taxable supplies, excluding the values of inward supplies on which tax is payable by a person on inverse charge basis.
However, it also exempt supply of goods and services and services of inter-state supplies having the same permanent account number to be computed all over India. It excludes Central tax, State tax, Union Territory tax, integrated tax etc. If the Aggregate Turnover is over 19 lakh then the business is eligible to register on the GST Portal. As soon as, if the aggregate turnover exceeds 20 lakh, the business becomes liable to pay GST. The aggregate turnover has been kept lowered for the north-east states at 9 lakh for registration and 10 lakhs for paying taxes.
