GST (Goods and Service Tax) is implemented for one nation one tax structure in indirect tax for the entire nation, which will make India a unified common market.
GST is a single tax on supply of goods and services (as opposed to the previous regime, where goods & services were separately taxed by state government and the central government), right from manufacture to consumer. All credits of input taxes paid at each phase will be available in the subsequent phase of value addition, which makes GST a tax only on value addition at each stage with seamless flow of input tax credit (tax paid at previous stage). The end customer thus bear only the GST charged by the last dealer in the supply chain, with set-off benefits at all the prior stages.
The Additional Duty for Excise or CVD and the Special Additional Duty (SAD) presently being levied on imports will be subsumed under GST. As per explanation to clause (1) of article 269A of the Constitution, IGST (Integrated Goods and Service Tax) will be levied on all imports into the territories in India. Unlike in the present rule, the States where imported goods are consumed will gain their share from IGST paid on the same.
While considering the federal structure of India, dual tax system of GST has been formulated in which there are two components of GST for a transaction made within a state (Intra State transaction) – Central GST (CGST) and State GST (SGST). Both Centre (CGST) and States(SGST) will concurrently levy GST across the value chain. Tax will be levied on every supply of goods and services. Centre would levy and collect Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST), and States would levy and collect the State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) on all transactions within a State
The input tax credit of CGST would be available for discharging the CGST liability on the output at each stage. Similarly, the credit of SGST paid on inputs would be allowed for paying the SGST on output.
No cross utilization of credit would be permitted between CGST and SGST.
For a transaction made outside a state (Inter-State transaction) IGST will be levied. SGST and CGST inputs are available to set off against IGST output tax liability. IGST paid on Inter-state purchase are available to set off first against IGST, then towards CGST and thereafter for SGST output tax payable.
For the implementation of GST in the country, the Central and State Governments together registered Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN) as a not-for-profit, non-Government Company to provide shared IT infrastructure and services to Central and State Governments, tax payers and other stakeholders. The key objectives of GSTN are to provide a standard and uniform interface to the taxpayers, and shared infrastructure and services to Central and State/Union territories.
GSTN is working on developing a IT infrastructure including the common GST portal providing frontend services of registration, returns and payments to all taxpayers, as well as the backend IT modules for certain States that include processing of returns, registrations, audits, assessments, appeals, etc. All States, accounting authorities, RBI and banks, are also preparing their IT infrastructure for the administration of GST.
GST has brought to paperless return mechanism. There is no manual filing of returns and all taxes can also be paid online. All mis-matched returns would be auto-generated, and there would be no need for manual interventions and the returns would be self-assessed.
The Central GST and State GST would be levied concurrently on every transaction of supply of goods and services except on exempted list, goods which are outside the purview of GST and the transactions which are below the prescribed threshold limits. Further, both would be levied on the same price or value unlike State VAT which is levied on the value of the goods inclusive of Central Excise.
