Sir I am a tax consultant under Vat act and we are acting like bridge between the government and the tax payers effectively. As per GST Act there's no identity and scope for us hence I request the government to give the opportunities to serve the government as well as the tax payers in GST. Kindly don't snatch the Roj ka Roti from our community. Please give the opportunity.

#GST: Welcome Central Governments move to enact GST. State Tax Practitioners are duly regd under Karnataka Sales Tax Act,1957 /KVAT Act, 2003 as professionals to support & represent tax payers & to conduct Non-Corporate VAT Audits in the State. It is felt that graduate/equivalent STP`s/TPr`s are neglected in the disguise of new concept of non-graduate TRP. It will be highly appreciated if care is taken to ensure proper role for this fraternity with due recognition & a smooth transition to GST.

#GST: Greetings to Modi Govt in bringing GST. I am a Tax Practitioner duly regd under Karnataka Sales Tax Act, 1957 representing & conducting VAT Audit of Non-Corporate MSME`s in the State, also heading as Vice-President of KSTPA. BJP Government has neglected State Tax Practitioners which is a threat since in the disguise of new concept of TRP. It will be highly appreciated if care is taken to ensure proper role for this fraternity with recognition in GST for smooth & successful implementation

#GST: Sir I am from tax practitioner fraternity which is serving tax compliance earlier to 1922. I am acting like bridge between the tax department & the tax payers effectively collecting about Rs.5 crores per month to government & in practice since 20 years. I will be jobless & 11 employees of mine with our families, if GST does not recognise my profession to serve as a tax practitioner with due recognition. Hence consider this request of around 35 lakh tax practitioners in the country to serve

Today the Government is introducing measures to control black money but inadvertently encouraging use of cash against credit and debit cards. Today if I pay cash for my power bill at the UPPCL case counter I pay the bill amount which is Rs. 4825 but if I pay by CC it is Rs 4875. i.e. Rs. 50 more. I was wondering if a shop's bill is Rs 48250 why should be Rs 48750 by CC i.e. Rs. 500 more or if it is a factory and the bill is Rs. 482500 why will he pay by CC using white money ?

when there is time limit for passing adjudication order there should be provided time limit for issuance of SCN and the reply to be submitted for such SCN. Otherwise on few days back SCN will be issued and then order will be passed saying it as time barred without giving proper opportunity of hearing to assessee.

Whether for audit and passing adjudication order a taxpayer needs to deal with two departments viz CGST and SGST or it will be with one department only.

Sec. 3 of Model GST law gives meaning and scope of supply. It should be exhaustive and not inclusive so that should not have any interpretation differences and consequently no litigation as what is supply and what is meaning of supply. Further why supply without consideration is included as supply in schedule I. It will have great implication.

Today the Govt officials and the Corporates who are the 3% taxpayers in the coutry, pay not only income tax but also indirect taxes. This anamoly could be corrected by introducing GST for all and removal of Income tax atleast for individuals earning upto 50 Lakhs per annum. The Govt can also consider to demonitise currrecy notes of value greater than Rs 100/-. All transaction be made by point of sale machines so that no trader/ buisnessman is able to evade any tax to be paid to the Govt.

Abolish Income Tax for individual/HUF, may be to a certain limit like 1 Cr or 5 Cr. and put some percentage of Expenditure Tax in GST , so to bring everyone equally in income tax net. Relieve the common man from the headache of maintenance of book and a Govt. Deptt.
Bring a higher threshold limit to make GST applicable on an individual or firm. Or just remove all threshold limit and bring everyone in the purview of GST. Lower threshold limit is a poison to SME units / service providers.
