GST now set for July 1 roll-out, Dual Control hurdle finally over

Source:-Business Standard 17/01/2017 The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council on Monday broke a deadlock over issues of administrative control over assesses and broadly agreed to roll out the GST from July 1, instead of the earlier deadline of April 1. Whether a state or the Centre will assess an entity would be decided by a computer programme. The Council also resolved a logjam over the right to tax economic activities within 12 nautical miles from India’s coasts Against the earlier proposals of reserving administration of assesses up to Rs 1.5 crore in annual turnover for states, or of allowing both the Centre and states to jointly administer these, the Council decided to blend the two suggestions. The entire tax base would be shared between the Centre and states in a predetermined ratio, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, the chairman of the Council, said at a press conference after the meeting. The Centre agreed the states would have the powers to administer 90 per cent of assesses with an annual turnover of up to Rs 1.5 crore. The Centre will have the powers to audit, send notices and scrutinise the remaining 10 per cent. Only West Bengal’s Amit Mitra did not agree, Jaitley said. Mitra later told reporters this agreement pertained to services only. Assesses with a turnover over Rs 1.5 crore will be administratively controlled by the Centre and states in equal measure. However, Jaitley said no assesses would be controlled by two authorities and there would be computer-based enforcement at both the Centre and the states. Those assesses who fall under the integrated GST (IGST) — for... read more

Rajasthan government to incorporate Goods and Service tax provisions in budget

The Times of India, Jan 14, 2017 JAIPUR: The state government will incorporate the provisions of Goods and Service Tax (GST) in the budget even if its implementation is delayed by the Centre beyond April. Instead of waiting for GST’s official roll out and then preparing for it, Rajasthan government will be ready for its execution. The budget will have separate heads under GST and well-laid guidelines of tax distribution. Sources claim the budget will be presented like every year in the same format but with additional features. “There will be a provision that will be in sync with the GST. It will be not be problematic for us to make move from current format of accounting to GST format, if it is announced in mid-year,” said an official. In the present structure, government has separate revenue heads (account) for the central sales tax, VAT, entertainment tax along with slew of other taxes. All these taxes will be merged in a uniform four slab taxation. Some of the portion of tax will go to Centre, a part of it to state and a portion of it will go completely in the state’s... read more

GST roll-out uncertainty hits Budget 2017 calculations

The Economics Times, Jan 14, 2017 NEW DELHI: Uncertainty over the date of the goods and services tax (GST) roll-out is posing a dilemma for finance mandarins as they finalise this year’s budget. The original expectation was that the budget would not touch upon excise duties and service tax as they would be rolled into the multiple-rates GST structure, which was to come into being from April 1, 2017. But with hopes of meeting the April 1 deadline receding, the government will have to quickly take a call on whether it will rejig indirect taxes in the budget to prepare for the launch of GST or leave them as they are till the new regime comes into force. The final decision could have ramifications on revenue estimates and collections for the next fiscal year as well as the levies imposed on different products and services. According to the GST constitutional amendment passed by Parliament last year, the current indirect tax regime will lapse by September... read more

GST to be simple, less burdensome for industry: Hasmukh Adhia

The Economics Times, Jan 11, 2017 GANDHINAGAR: Goods and Services Tax will usher in a very simple and less burdensome taxation regime as it will be a single rate indirect tax which can be paid by debit/credit cards, cheque and NEFT, Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia said today. He said, GST will make it easier for traders and industry to access Input Tax Credit and also ease compliance burden as the entire country will become a single market. “GST is a very very simple thing to follow, it is going to be very easy for all of you. There will not be any border restriction when you move goods from one state to another. And many of the small small taxes will go away. It will be one unified tax,” Adhia said at the Vibrant Gujarat global Summit here. The government had planned to roll out GST, which will subsume excise and service tax and other local levies, from April 1,2017. However, vexed issues like jurisdiction over assesses, remain to be resolved by the GST Council chaired by Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. “We are working overtime to make it a reality as early as possible. Our target date is April 1, 2017, and we will see to it that we try our best to bring it to people,” Adhia said, adding that taxes can be paid by way of NEFT, RTGS, cheque, and debit/credit cards. Explaining the procedure of tax payment under the new tax regime, he said GST is a single tax and Integrated GST on cross border movement of goods and services is only an “interim” tax... read more

Demonetization, GST to make society tax compliant, says Arun Jaitley

The Times of India, Jan 11, 2017 GANDHINAGAR: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on Wednesday termed the disruption caused by demonetization as transient and said the move together with GST rollout will boost the Indian economy and make the “substantially” non tax-compliant society more compliant. Speaking at the Vibrant Gujarat Global Summit, Jaitley said the scrapping of high-value notes was a move to end the shadow economy. To that end, he said, the government also renegotiated tax treaties+ with Mauritius, Cyprus and Singapore to end tax evasion and round tripping of funds. “Obviously difficult decisions initially pass through difficult phases. Historic decisions which can have long term advantages for the country also have transient pains attached to them. But then in the medium and long term, they are going to change the road map on which the country is destined to move,” he said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had on November 8 announced+ the junking of old Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes in the biggest step to fight black money, terror funding, corruption and counterfeit currency. Jaitley said that while India aspires to evolve from a developing country to a developed nation and an economy that is making an impact globally+ with fastest growth rate, “we are substantially, in terms of taxation, a non-complaint... read more

Excise, service taxpayers to migrate to GST portal by January 31

The Economics Times, Jan 09, 2017 Keen to ensure roll out of goods and services tax from April 1, 2017, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) has begun migration of its existing excise duty and service tax assesses to the new regime. “All existing central excise/service tax assesses are requested to migrate as early as possible, latest by 31st January, 2017,” a CBEC statement said on Monday. Once the existing registered taxpayers (both Central Excise as well as Service Tax) login to CBEC’s Web Portal www.aces.gov.in, a facility will be given in a secure manner to access the provisional login ID and password given by Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN), it said. Thereafter, using the same, they can log in to GST Portal (www.gst.gov.in) to fill the required fields and submit scanned documents. However, if they have already initiated the process of migration to GST as a Value Added Tax assesse under state commercial tax department, they will not need to re-register. Permanent Account Number is mandatory for migration to GST and if an existing excise duty or service tax registration does not have one then it has to be obtained from the income tax department. Registration details will have to updated on the ACES portal, it said. CBEC has started 24X7 help desk to help assesses. The board is also sending Emails/recorded telephonic messages to all registered... read more

FM may unveil GST timeline, state compensation corpus on Feb 1

Money Control, Jan 09, 2017 The finance minister Arun Jaitley is likely to announce the timeline for the much awaited tax reform— Goods and Services Tax (GST)—in the upcoming Budget 2017-18, which would be presented on February 1. The Part B of the Budget speech, which contains tax proposals, could carry half-yearly estimates of service, central excise duty and collections from other indirect taxes (excluding customs) also that the Centre expects to earn between April to September, instead of only full-year projections. India will have to implement GST on or before September 15, 2017. With the Centre and states locked in hectic confabulations over finer details of GST, the original deadline of April rolling out the new indirect tax system looks missed for now. The GST council, headed by the finance minister, will meet next on January 16 to hammer out a consensus on outstanding issues and fix an implementation date. GST will subsume a web of local and central levies such as excise, VAT, service tax and octroi into a single tax. The GST Council has already decided on a four-slab GST rate structure. Separately, a bureaucrats’panel is working on the “classification” exercise, a comprehensive list clubbing thousands of goods and services into different rate categories.After GST, Part B of the Union Budget speech, will only have income and other direct taxes and customs duties, a major break from the past when every minor indirect tax change had market and sectoral implications.With GST now heading for a mid-year roll-out, the Budget for 2017-18, will factor in only expected half-year revenue estimates from existing central indirect levies, an official... read more

GST registration: PAN card must for excise, service taxpayers to migrate to new tax regime

The Economics Times, Jan 8, 2017 New Delhi: The tax department has made it mandatory for central excise duty and service taxpayers to obtain a valid PAN number before they can be migrated to the new goods and services tax (GST) set-up. Despite the political impasse putting a question mark on the planned rollout of the new tax regime from 1 April, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) continues to do the groundwork with 1 April 1 as the target date. GST will subsume central excise and service tax, and CBEC has initiated the process of migrating these taxpayers to the new regime through issuance of a provisional registration number. “Every person registered under any of the earlier laws and having a valid PAN shall be issued a certificate of registration on a provisional basis,” CBEC said in an order. For excise and service tax assessees without a valid PAN number, CBEC said “the assessee needs to obtain the PAN number and update the registration details on the ACES portal before the assessee can be migrated to GST”. CBEC has also asked its field offices to launch awareness campaign and outreach programmes to facilitate migration of all excise and service taxpayers to the GST network by January-end. The provisional registration, which will be generated on the basis of PAN, will be called Goods and Services Tax Identification Number (GSTIN). Also, a provisional ID and password will be provided which the excise and service taxpayers must use to log in to the GST portal — gst.gov.in — and fill the required details and upload the supporting documents, it... read more

Tax Refund to Exporters Within 7 Days Under GST: Nirmala Sitharaman

News 18, January 6, 2017, New Delhi: The tax claims of Indian exporters will be refunded by the Department of Revenue (DoR) within seven days under the proposed Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime, Commerce Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said on Thursday. She also said that exporters would get interested on the refund if it is delayed beyond two weeks. At a meeting on Thursday of the Council for Trade Development and Promotion, exporters were assured “that on 90 percent of the amount (of refund), within seven days, the refund will be made and if there is an undue delay, interest will be paid on the amount due”, Sitharaman said, briefing reporters on the meeting. Exporters have been demanding exemption from GST regime on the grounds that delay in refunds often takes months and results in blocking of working capital. “GST clearly provides that the taxes must be paid and that the refund will be provided. So since the regime is so structured, in order to see that there is a minimum pain to the exporters, the DoR has committed that 90 percent of the refund will be made within seven days. Delays beyond that would invite interest payment,” Commerce Secretary Rita Teaotia said. “This assurance satisfies the exporters,” she said. “The issue about interest payment, what that amount would be and whether it would kick in after two weeks, that detail DoR would decide,” Teaotia... read more

GST: No accord on dual control

The eighth meeting of the Goods and Services Tax Council failed yet again to reach a consensus on the critical issue of dual control, a major roadblock in the finalisation of the draft GST laws, Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said on Wednesday. The Council will meet again on January 16. Mr. Jaitley, briefing reporters on the two-day meeting, said he expected both direct and indirect tax collections at the end of the year to exceed the budget estimates. After the first day of the meeting on Tuesday, several State Finance Ministers said the April 1 deadline for the rollout of GST looked unlikely, with the likelihood of a July or September rollout increasing. “The legal drafts of the draft laws with gaps have been sent for legal vetting and will be presented before the GST Council,” Mr. Jaitley said. “The gaps refer to two broad areas. The first is the definition of the word ‘territory’, and the second has to do with the issue of dual control and cross empowerment. “The territory issue is a complex one. The area of 12 nautical miles from the India coast is Indian territory,” he explained. “Service tax in this area has been levied by the Government of India. But fishing in these areas has been taxed by the States.” “The answer to this is not political, it is purely a constitutional issue,” Mr. Jaitley said. One other issue raised by the States was the compensation, and how this amount should be increased due to the hit to State revenues caused by the demonetisation of high value currency notes. “I have asked... read more

GST: Jaitley pushes for consensus

The Times of India, Jan 5, 2017 New Delhi: The Centre on Wednesday said that it will wait for consensus to emerge on GST laws and will not push for a decision by vote despite the threat of a delay in rolling out the new tax regime from April. “I have consciously avoided voting and we have decided on issues based on consensus, often after a long discussion. The GST Council is a federal institution and a delicate one,” finance minister Arun Jaitley said after the body comprising states and the Centre failed to finalize the draft laws once again. Jaitley said that given that the precedent from earlier meetings would be cited in future decision-making, GST Council was trying to decide on all issues by consensus. Two major issues — the proposed levy of tax on sale in the high-seas and dual control over entities with annual turnover of less than Rs 1.5 crore — have held up the finalization of the draft laws. The laws need to be cleared by the state legislatures and Parliament before GST can be rolled out and industry is demanding time to prepare itself for the new tax regime.  As a result, the possibility of rolling out GST from April seems remote and state FMs are talking about a delay with Kerala finance minister Thomas Issac suggesting that implementation may not take place before September, which is the Constitutional deadline. “I am not very optimistic about GST rolling out in June or July. It is better to move to GST after all the preparations are done. To my understanding, it will be implemented September on wards,” he told... read more

GST timeline derailed, but direction unchanged

(Source: Livemint) New Delhi: The eight meeting of the GST Council ended on Wednesday without taking up the issue of sharing of administrative powers between the states and the Centre though both sides made headway on the integrated GST bill. States, including Kerala, Delhi, West Bengal, Karnataka, Meghalaya and Tamil Nadu, also raised a new issue of a rate split under the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Instead of equally dividing the GST tax rate, states are now demanding that the split in the tax rate should be in the ratio of 60:40. This means that if the highest tax rate under GST is 28%, then states are demanding that SGST rate should be 60% of 28%, and the CGST rate be 40% of 28%. GST is now unlikely to be implemented from 1 April 2017 with the new roll out date expected to be either 1 June or 1 July. The next meeting of the GST Council will take place on 16 January, wherein the issue of sharing of administrative powers will be discussed, said Kerala finance minister Thomas Isaac. “The Centre seems to be in a mood to reconsider some of the stands it is adopting. It is appreciating the position of the states—be it our concerns on compensation or reconsidering it’s stand on the issue of territorial waters,” Isaac said in a press conference expressing hope that the next meeting of the Council could find a solution to the issue of sharing of administrative powers between the Centre and the states. The states and the Centre also agreed that the language of the draft compensation bill will be... read more

Commerce Ministry for exempting exports from GST

The Economics Times, Jan 03, 2017 NEW DELHI: Commerce and Industry Ministry today pressed the GST Council to keep exports out of the GST framework and levy lower taxes on labour-intensive sectors like leather, cement and plantation. In their contention before the all powerful GST Council, the ministry officials argued the need for granting an “ab-initio” exemption from Goods and Services Tax (GST) for exporters saying that the process of seeking tax refunds erodes their working capital. Moreover, they stated that in view of tough global situation it is imperative to encourage exports. Briefing reporters, Commerce and Industry Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said refund of taxes takes about six to eight months and hence it is necessary to “give an ab-intio exemption”. She asked the council to treat exporters in such a way that they do not have to pay taxes upfront. “…it (GST) should not become a newer liability in the heads of exporter…we do not want the exporter to suffer twice,” she said. She also underlined the need for encouraging labour intensive sectors like cement, leather and plantation crops and suggested that either they should be completely exempted from the new tax or be taxed at a low rate. For leather industry, she said, “We wanted to ensure that if they can be given a complete exclusion from taxation because they have to generate lot of employment”. “If at all, you have to have a taxation, keep them at the lowest possible, which means five per cent or less than that. So that is the strong pitch we made. India has a great potential in this particular sector,”... read more

GST meet: States demand tax on high sea sales, higher compensation

By: ENS Economic Bureau | New Delhi |January 4, 2017 The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Council on the first day of its eighth meeting kick started discussion on the provisions of the Integrated GST (IGST) bill, with the states and the Center locking horns on the issue of tax jurisdiction over high sea sales in offshore regions of coastal states. The talks remained inconclusive and may resume on Wednesday along with the other contentious issue of cross empowerment pertaining to division of control over tax assesses under the proposed indirect tax regime. With the states and the Center in a deadlock over the important provisions of IGST bill, finance ministers of many states said that the April 1 deadline for GST rollout is likely to be missed. “We couldn’t reach a consensus on a very important issue that relates to defining of a state. This is 12 nautical miles from the state can states charge GST from them or not? Right now, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Odisha, Maharashtra, West Bengal, many states are now charging VAT or sales tax within 12 nautical miles. For example, when a ship is loaded with oil or products, the tax on that is charged by the states,” West Bengal finance minister Amit Mitra said. “Some states earn as much as Rs 600 crore and Gujarat has Rs 1,200 crore from this source. All the coastal states combined, irrespective of parties, in saying that we must have 12 nautical miles within the state jurisdiction,” he said. The issue has been referred to the law ministry by the Council’s chairman, finance minister Arun Jaitley, Mitra added. Kerala finance... read more

Centre, states agree upon contours of GST laws but April deadline looks difficult

The Economics Times, Jan 04, 2017 NEW DELHI: Making further progress towards the goods and services tax regime, the Center and states broadly finalized the contours of the law that will govern this levy. But states raised a few more issues, even as the contentious one on tax administration remained unresolved. A number of states said the April 1 deadline to roll out GST looked difficult to meet and that a realistic target could be June or July. Still, the eighth meeting of the GST Council reached consensus on most of the provisions of integrated-GST, the law for interstate sales, and other issues related to the central GST and state GST previously left undecided. Parliament will need to pass the I-GST and central GST laws before the tax system can be implemented. States will need to pass state GST rules. The council will meet on Wednesday to deliberate the issue of administration of the tax, the issue of dual control. “April 1 roll-out of GST definitely not possible,” said Thomas Isaac, Kerala’s finance minister. Gujarat finance minister said it could even be September. The West Bengal finance minister said the council did not even “touch” on the issue of dual control, which was fundamental to the GST roll-out, and that slabs on 1,500 items were yet to be decided. “We cannot have a GST that is non-sustainable, flawed and states will not give up their rights,” Amit Mitra said, adding that the ““demonetization tsunami” derailed the process. Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said there may be a one- or two-month delay from April... read more

Demonetisation, GST have potential to transform India; NPAs key risk: RBI

The Economics Times,  Dec 29, 2016 MUMBAI: RBI today said GST and demonetisation have the potential to transform the economy, “notwithstanding some inconvenience to public and momentary adverse impact on growth”, even as it flagged elevated risks due to continuous deterioration in banks’ asset quality. It also observed that while the financial performance of the corporate sector has improved in 2016-17, the risk of lower turnover remains. It also said large borrowers registered significant deterioration in their asset quality.  “The measures such as transition to the nationwide GST and the withdrawal of legal tender status of specified bank notes (old Rs 500/1000) could potentially transform the domestic economy, notwithstanding some inconvenience to public and the momentary adverse impact on growth,” RBI said.  These observations were made in the Report on Trend and Progress of Banking in India 2015-16 (RTP) and the 14th issue of the Financial Stability Report (FSR). In his foreword to FSR, RBI Governor Urjit Patel said the withdrawal of Rs 500/1000 notes “will impart far reaching changes going forward”. “It is expected to significantly transform the domestic economy in due course in terms of greater intermediation, efficiency gains, accountability and transparency through increasing adoption of digital modes of payments, notwithstanding the short-term disruptions in certain segments of the economy and public hardship,” he said. The Governor also cautioned that there is “little room” for complacency and it is important to guard against sporadic volatility in financial markets. RBI further said that the banking stability indicator shows that the risks to the banking sector remained elevated due to continuous deterioration in asset quality, low profitability and liquidity.... read more

GST, demonetisation to have far reaching impact: RBI governor

(Source: Money control)  Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Urjit Patel said that the nationwide goods and services tax and legislation of bankruptcy code should impart resilience to the economy. He added that the withdrawal of specified bank notes will impart far reaching changes going forward, in his foreward to the Financial Stability Report published by RBI.  With respect to demonetisation, Patel said that it is expected to significantly transform the domestic economy in due course in terms of greater intermediation, efficiency gains, accountability and transparency through increasing adoption of digital modes of payments, notwithstanding the short-term disruptions in certain segments of the economy and public hardship. Patel also raised concerns about stress in the banking sector. “While the domestic banking sector continues to face significant levels of stress partly reflecting legacy issues, on balance, enhanced transparency has helped to reinforce the stability of India’s financial system,” he said. Overall, he said that there is little room for complacency and it is important to guard against sporadic volatility in financial markets. Patel said that they are adhering to global regulatory standards without losing sight of domestic compulsions. In this context, the governor said that there are various regulatory changes underway globally to strengthen financial stability. At the same time, Patel said that the global financial crisis has prompted regulators to require banks to undertake stress tests to see if their risk appetite matches their risk taking capacity. The asset quality review of Indian banks and the subsequent corrective actions are steps in this direction, he... read more

Hopeful about GST regime roll out from April: Anant Kumar

The Economics Times  Dec 27, 2016  BENGALURU: Union Minister for Parliamentary Affairs H N Ananth Kumar today expressed hope about the roll out of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime from coming April, saying the government is pushing ahead with the agenda. “Our discussions with opposition parties and GST council is an ongoing process. I’m confident that once we have passed the constitutional amendment bill without any opposition in both houses of Parliament, ultimately GST council will also come out with unanimous decisions so that it can be given a legal framework in the Parliament of India,” he said. Asked how hopeful he was about GST roll out as one approaches April, Kumar said, “We are pushing ahead with the agenda, I’m hopeful.” The Union Minister was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the 21st convocation of the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS) here. The government intends to roll out the GST regime from April 2017, but there are apprehensions that the date will be missed because the all powerful GST Council is yet to iron out several vexed issues, including jurisdiction of the Centre and state governments over tax payers. The Council, headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and comprising state finance ministers, has so far met seven times after Parliament amended the Constitution for implementation of GST. The next meeting is scheduled for January 3 and 4 to decide on the contentious issue of dual control over assesses and the legislation on IGST. “I am trying my best,” Jaitley had earlier said on the expected April 1 roll out schedule. “I... read more
