GST Committee Report on Returns

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, shall be put up for inviting comments of stakeholders in due course. Presently, the draft business processes on GST returns, GST registration, GST refunds and GST payments are being published.

The Report of the Committee on GST Returns is available here. Comments and views are invited on these business processes by 6th November, 2015. Users are requested to keep in mind the guidelines for posting their comments:

#GSTReturnsForms Returns to be uniformly on monthly basis. Since it is a composite return for a month keep the date of filing as 10th of next month. Map requirements with TDS returns of IT Dept and VAT of State Govts. Remove multiplicity. Provide for a revision of return to be made by 25th of the next month with a late filing fee. View it from taxpayer perspective and make it compatible to existing a/cting softwares. The upload of return to be easy and initial stage corporate to use DSC.

Return ka period same hona chaiye either Quaterly or Monthly. Best option : Monthly for all dealers, isme reconcilation karne me aasani hogi aur kaam speed se hoga, jo dealer galat kaam karte h unko time nahi milega manipulate karne ke liye. return ke sath annex bhi upload karna hoga buyer and seller ke GST no wise, return revise option hona chahiye h but limited period ke liye may be 15-30 days, late date of payment 21st of next month hona chahiye h and return next 25th of month.

माननीय मंत्री जी
GST में पेमेंट मोड पर कुछ सुझाव देना चाहता हु
एक नया तैरीका जो आसन भी ह और सामान्य आदमी कर भी सागता है
पेमेंट टेलिकॉम कंपनी के थ्रू
कैसे : सारी टेलिकॉम कंपनी एक गवर्मेंट टॉप उप लाएगे जिसमे लोगो को फुल बैलेंस मिलेगा और वोह बैलेंस सिर्फ गवर्मेंट चालान में यूज़ होगा
चालान वाया sms भरा जायेगा
उदारण के लिए जब SGST का पेमेंट करना हो तो टाइप
PANBASEGSTNO SGST/CGST/IGST ०१०४१६ TO ३००४१६ T (अमाउंट) I (अमाउंट)
सेंड तो एनी गवर्मेंट नों
बैलेंस टॉप उप में कम हो जायेगा
धन्यवाद

Good for accountants profession ( Ha Ha Ha) It will be quite burdensome and costs are bound to increase for all kind of taxpayers. Some more issues:
1. Sales invoices once filed( GSTR-1) cant be amended except in case of changes suggested by purchasing dealers. What if sales is B2C and some mistake happened ?
2. Correction should be available at least for one quarter.

Filing of invoice level details of sales by 10th of next month and purchase by 15th is a tall order both for small and large taxpayers. For large taxpayers compiling the data in such a short time is difficult and for small taxpayers who use part time accountants and bookkeepers it will be not only very demanding but also a costly affairs. The cost of compliance is definitely going to increase. Why this process cant be made aquarterly affair instead of monthly ?

To continue .......

Apparently the compliance burden is expected to increase many fold on account of the proposed monthly filing of returns with invoice level details for B2B and inter-state B2C supplies. High level of automation is expected to be achieved by the assessee which seems to be a tall order - atleast for the start

STP’s with specified qualification also includes many Law graudates and Post Graduates in Commerce and semi-qualified CA’s/ ICWA’s as well. They are well versed in Indirect Tax Laws and very well experienced in Indirect Tax Law procedures. They have many staff working under them. If they are not allowed to certify the GSTR-8 return ie.,(annual return) it amounts to injustice and will have adverse impact on tax collection and employment. Please use their expertise and experience.
