The Government of India intends to introduce the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in the country at the earliest. GST seeks to subsume many indirect taxes at the Central and State level. The proposed dual GST envisages taxation of the same taxable event, i.e., supply of goods and services, simultaneously by both the Centre and the States.

The Constitution (One Hundred and Twenty-Second Amendment) Bill, 2014, has been introduced in the Parliament for facilitating the introduction of GST in the country. Simultaneously, committees comprising of officers from the Central Government, as well as the State Governments, have been constituted for the drafting of Model CGST, SGST and IGST laws, and GST business processes of registration, refunds, returns and payments.

The draft Model CGST, SGST and IGST laws, along with GST business processes for filing of returns, shall be put up for inviting comments of stakeholders in due course. Presently, the draft business processes on GST registration, GST refunds and GST payments are being published.

The Report of the Committee on GST Refunds is available here. Comments and views are invited on these business processes by 31st October, 2015. Users are requested to keep in mind the guidelines for posting their comments:

Rate of Tax on Services is more than that of goods. Which will result in a situation where Input GST (Goods+Service) is more than Output GST(goods+service). As per the business process the excess credit will be carry forward to the subsequent year for adjustment. If this carry forward is prolonged then the working capital cost will increase. On the other hand if GST credit on services is not taken then the pricing will become uncompetitive. Hence for excess input option for refund to be allowed.

#GSTRefunds: for general comments. In case of exporters duty free sourcing allowed. BRC should not be pre-condition for refund.Refund for Excess payment/Wrong mention under Additional Tax also be allowed. Their should either be no minimum amount limit for refund as said of 500-1000 per case or else for demand of any tax also same minimum limit should be adhered. Rate of Interest on refund be same as asked from taxpayer on tax dues, 6% interest is very less of refund, minimum 9%.
