Some Income Tax & ACCOUNTING ISSUES – cont…<br />Theoretical Scenario – <br />Value of Work order is Rs.100 cr. <br />Estimated Completion Cost is Rs.80 cr<br />Cost Incurred till date is Rs. 20 cr<br />Percentage Completion is 25% (20/80)<br />Revenue to be booked is Rs. 25 cr. (Thus profit booked is Rs 5 cr)<br />
In response to a query on applicability of revised AS 7 to a real estate developer, before the Expert Advisory Committee (EAC) formed by the ICAI:- <br /><ul><li>the EAC observed that the pre-revised AS 7 covers real estate developer. However, the revised AS 7 is applicable only to Contractors.
The Percentage Completion Method is not an inappropriate method for accounting for the real estate developers. </li></li></ul><li>Guidance Note – Real Estate Accounting<br />The purpose of issuing the GN was to bifurcate the construction activity which was being carried out by the developer / builder on their own account.<br />GN asks you to determine the point at which significant risks and rewards with regard to the property get transferred on the basis of following criteria:-<br /> Transfer of ownership by way of deed<br />Transfer of possession.<br />
Guidance Note – Real Estate Accounting<br />3. Transfer by way of an enforceable agreement to sale subject to fulfillment of additional conditions :-<br /> a) Price Risk is transferred<br /> b) Buyer has legal right to sell or transfer his interest in the property without any conditions hampering such transfer<br />Once the risk and rewards are transferred the revenue needs to be recognisedas per :-<br />a) POCM prescribed under AS-7, if substantial acts with regard to construction are pending to be performed.<br />b) In other cases as per AS-9<br />
Booking Future Losses...<br />Another point worth noting for civil contractors is regarding foreseeable losses as per the judgement of Jacobs Engineering vs. ACIT (ITAT Mumbai) – <br />The assessee was engaged in the business of executing works contracts and was following the mercantile system of accounting and the “percentage completion method”. <br />It claimed a deduction for “foreseeable losses” on incomplete projects which was disallowed by the AO and CIT (A) on the basis that it was merely an anticipated loss based on an estimate. <br />
On appeal by the assessee, It was HELD,<br />(i) Para 13.1 of Accounting Standard 7 (AS-7) mandates accounting of foreseeable losses <br />(ii) The fact that AS-7 has not been notified by the Central Government as an accounting standard for purposes of s. 145 (2) is not relevant; <br />Thus anticipated losses on incomplete projects are allowable as a deduction subject to their being calculated as per AS-7. <br />
During the year 2010-11 construction of some bungalows and of common facilities has been started for a scheme of 200 bunglows.<br /> As on 31/03/2011 work of some bungalows was completed at plinth level and of some bungalows at first floor level. Also construction of club house was completed at first floor level. How the valuation of inventory, WIP should be done as on 31/03/2011.<br />Whether Land is to be seen as purchase and as a closing stock as on 31/03/2011. The club house and all common facilities are to be handed over to the society of members after completing the whole scheme. <br />How the accounting of completed work of common facilities should be made as on 31/03/2011 and at the time of handing over to the society of members.<br />
Lets put in some figures<br />Estimated Cost of Construction of one unit – Rs. 20 Lacs<br />Estimated Cost of Common construction (including cost of Land) allocable to each unit – Rs. 10 Lacs<br />Actual Cost Incurred Till 31/03/2011 –<br />On Flats – Rs. 10 Lacs per flat<br />Common – Rs. 5 Lacs per flat<br />Hence Percentage completed is 50%<br />Out of 200 units, agreement to sell transferring substantial risks have been made for 50 units at Rs. 100 Lacs<br />
Revenue / Inventory<br />So 50 units shall be valued at Rs. 50 Lacs (booking 50% of revenue) – Contract WIP<br />The balance 150 units shall be valued at Rs. 15 Lacs (At Cost) – Inventory of Flats under Construction<br />At the end of the project, the Complete Contract WIP is transferred to Society A/c along with all the Customer Receipts. <br />
There is a difference between developer and contractor.<br />Developer designs and conceives new project and the contractor executes the same without any risk on his own account.<br />Benefit is available only for the developer.<br />
Section 44AD : Presumptive Taxation<br />Deemed income under the head " Profits and gains of business or<br />profession"<br />- 8 percent of the total turnover / gross receipts<br />- Higher sum as declared by the assessee in his ROI<br />Applicable only if gross receipts paid or payable does not exceed sixty<br />lakhsrupees<br />Depreciation deemed to have been calculated<br />All deductions under Section 30 to 38 be deemed allowed<br />Salary and interest to partner to be deducted from income computed<br />Tax Audit required only if income lower than 8%.<br />
Other Points to remember<br />No cash payments in a day to a single person > 20,000<br />Creditor Confirmations from local creditors<br />Delay in Statutory Payments including TDS beyond return filing period is added back to income.<br />

VAT – The Three words which have really tormented the construction sector<br />
VAT for Civil Construction<br /> Bird’s eye view:-<br />Registration – When and how?<br />VAT Compliance at a Glance<br />Definition of Works Contract<br />Valuation Options – Regular vs Composition<br />Inter-State Works Contracts<br />Overall lap in Service Tax and VAT<br />TDS Rate under GVAT<br />VAT Input<br />Audit of Accounts<br />VAT Planning Tips<br />
Registration Requirement<br />REGISTRATION:<br />Turnover Threshold – <br />Casual dealer<br />or auctioneer Turnover of taxable sales of Rs.10,001 or more.<br />All Others Total Sales or Purchase turnover of Rs.5,00,001 or <br /> more <br /> AND turnover of taxable goods of Rs.10,001 or <br /> more.<br />
What isWorks Contract ?<br /><ul><li>46th amendment to the constitution does not provide any definition of works contract.
Works Contract is generally defined under CST and various State Acts, as:</li></ul> “Works Contract means a contract for carrying out any work which includes assembling, construction, building, altering, manufacturing, processing, erection, installation, fitting out, improvement, repair or commissioning of any movable or immovable property.”<br /><ul><li>Predominant intention of the parties to the contract is not to sale or purchase the goodsbut to carry out certain work for a lump sum price</li></li></ul><li>The works contracts are not normal sales. <br />For example, at the site of construction of a building, before the Construction (works contract) commences, the goods like cement, steel, sand etc. are lying but after the Construction a building (immovable goods) comes to an existence. This is the difference between the ` Normal” sale and the “deemed sale” in the indivisible works contract .<br />
VAT Basics<br />Different acts for different states<br />VAT a cost to most clients unlike service tax<br />VAT is payable in all Works Contracts which involve transfer of property in goods. <br />Since the value of the Contract is indivisible, various issues are involved with respect to offering the VAT Liability.<br />
Valuation options under <br />Works Contract<br /><ul><li>Composition
Actual Labour</li></ul>deduction <br /><ul><li>Standard Labour</li></ul> deduction <br />
Basic Modes available in each state:-<br />Composition – Pay flat rate of tax on the turnover towards civil contracts, for e.g. 0.60% in Gujarat (No out-state purchases allowed), 4% in Orissa, 3% in Rajasthan, 2% in Madhya Pradesh. Advisable in case of Turnkey Contracts with significant material portion.<br />Actual – Identify the material consumed against the Running Account Bills raised during the period. Advisable when major materials like Cement / Steel are being supplied by the client.<br />For Ex. Value of Work is Rs. 20 Crores. <br /> Expected cost of Transferable materials (VAT Rate – 4%) is 4 crores. <br /> GP Rate is expected to be 20%.<br />VAT under Composition (M.P) – 2% of Rs.20 cr = Rs. 40 Lacs<br /> under Normal Scheme – 4% of (Rs 1 cr) = Rs. 4 Lacs<br />Where 1 cr is the allocable GP to Transferable Purchases <br />
Composition of Contracts <br /> ?<br />In other cases the rate is 2%.<br />
Types of composition<br />For complete contract <br />within 30 days of commencement of Work<br />For Complete year<br />Application within 30 days of commencement of Work<br />No condonation for delay – Matter Pending before Tribunal<br />Non receipt is assumed as granted<br />
Deduction in composition scheme - <br />Deduction of amount of entire sub-contract shall be made, if any<br /> - If under complete composition then even for unregistered contractors deduction is available<br /> - If composition contract to contract then only for registered sub- contractors. <br />No Labour deduction in Works Contract, if composition is opted<br />?<br />
Conditions for the composition Scheme:-<br />Dealer must be Registered Dealer<br />Conditions attached to Tax credit depending on state to state<br /> Tax Invoice shall NOT be issued to the client<br /> Tax shall NOT be charged from the client<br /> Conditions attached with regard to making Interstate / OGS Purchases<br />?<br />?<br />
21 May 2011<br />41<br />TAXABILITY UNDER COMPOSITION METHOD<br />
Continued…<br />Once Application for composition is made and is not rejected by the department, the acceptance is presumed .<br /> Option shall be final and is IRREVOCABLE. <br /> (Rule 28(8)(i) )<br />Suggestion –<br /> 1. If you are applying a fresh registration, then its advisable to apply for composition at the same time. (Permissible period of 90 days is likely to lapse)<br /> 2. OGS items as Free Supply from the contractee.<br />?<br />
Regular Mode<br />The practical scenario is not so easy. In an unorganised sector, it is very difficult to obtain the relevant details.<br />Since the Sales Invoices are raised on a progressive basis, the VAT liability also has to be discharged on a progressive basis. <br />Identification of material transferred in each of the sales invoices is required. But which is a big task if the inventory has not been maintained in order.<br />Further if you are working with a client like Reliance, when you have 10-12 orders from 10-12 different group companies for the same plant, the situation can be very tricky.<br />Bifurcation of material into transferable and non-transferable may not be easy.<br />
21 May 2011<br />44<br />Supreme Court Judgement in the case ofGannon Dunkerley & Company (88 STC 204)<br />Total Contact Value : xxxxx<br /> Less : Prescribed deductions: <br /> a) Labour charges for execution of Works Contract xxxxx<br /> b) Amount paid to sub-contractor for labour and services xxxxx<br /> c) Charges for planning, designing & Architect’s fees xxxxx<br /> d) Charges for acquiring machines, tools etc. on hire or xxxxx<br /> otherwise <br /> e) Cost of consumable in which property does not pass <br /> to contracteexxxxx<br /> f) Cost of establishment relating to supply of labourxxxxx<br /> and sevices<br /> g) Other expenses relating to supply of labour and services xxxxx<br /> h) Profit of contractor relating to labour & services xxxxx<br /> -----------<br /> BALANCE = Taxable Amount xxxxx<br /> ----------- <br />
21 May 2011<br />45<br />WORKS CONTRACT TURNOVER- NON COMPOSITION METHOD<br />Analysis of prescribed deductions:<br />a) Labour charges for execution of Works Contract:<br />The value consists of mobilisation of men and material and <br /> establishment of site office etc. As these are preliminary expenses <br /> not involving value goods cannot be subjected to tax. <br /> b) Amount paid to sub-contractor for labour and services:<br /> Value relatable to sub-contractors turnover where sub-contractor is <br /> engaged only for labour and services not involving supply of goods<br /> c) Charges for planning, designing & Architect’s fees:<br /> Value for planning, designing and architects fees relating to<br /> construction of building or plant. As the expenses are in the nature<br /> of services hence eligible for deduction <br />
21 May 2011<br />46<br />WORKS CONTRACT TURNOVER- NON COMPOSITION METHOD<br />Analysis of prescribed deductions:<br /> d) Charges for acquiring machines, tools etc. on hire or otherwise<br /> These goods are either taken on hire or purchased as assets for use in the<br /> process of execution of works contract. However, since the goods are neither<br /> incorporated in works contract nor sold to the customer there is no transfer of<br /> property in them and hence excluded for the levy of VAT. Nevertheless, Lease tax<br /> or VAT is payable to the vendor from whom they are acquired. <br /> e) Cost of consumable in which property does not pass to contractee<br /> These are the items such as water, electricity, fuel, lubricating oils, electrodes etc, <br /> which are getting consumed in the process of execution of works contract and<br /> hence the property therein is not transferred to the contractee and hence are<br /> excluded for the purpose of levy of tax.<br />?<br />
21 May 2011<br />47<br />WORKS CONTRACT TURNOVER- NON COMPOSITION METHOD<br />Analysis of prescribed deductions<br /> f) Cost of establishment relating to supply of labour and services <br /> This cost is relatable to facility given to labor such accommodation and other <br /> facilities to make them available at job site for purpose of carrying out labour<br /> and rendering of services in connection with execution of works contract. <br /> g) Other expenses relating to supply of labour and services<br /> These are expenses in the nature of overheads, rent, salary, electricity,<br /> telephone charges expended relating to works contract job. <br /> h) Profit of contractor relating to labour & services<br /> This is the profit earned by the contractor over the cost of labour and services <br /> expended by him i.e. difference between the value recovered from the employer<br /> and the cost incurred by the contractor <br />
Basic Step is to sit with the Site Engineer and bifurcate all the purchases into Transferable and Non-Transferable. For Ex- Wooden Materials which are used for Shuttering activity, are not transferred to the client and are consumed and booked as “Consumables, Stores and Spares”. <br />You can then mark up the Purchases of Transferable with GP rate and offer the relevant rate on a monthly basis. <br />
Calculation sheet<br />Further you need to make sure that Non-Transferable Purchases of Rs. 40 has been Shown under the Head of Consumables, Stores and Spares in P&L Account. <br />
When no records are maintained<br />Adhoc deduction is available in each of the state – <br />In Gujarat under Rule 18AA – Deduction of 20% is available<br />

21 May 2011<br />52<br />Client’s material<br />Client can issue his material for use in execution of works contract awarded to the contractor where:<br /> a) Material can be issued as free supply not resulting in either recovery or<br /> sale to contractor or<br /> b) Material can be supplied on recovery basis or can be sold to the<br /> contractor .(N.M. Goel 72 STC 368 (SC) )<br />Value of material supplied not resulting in either recovery or sale, is outside the scope of works contract turnover and hence not liable for tax.<br />Value of material supplied on recovery basis or sold to the contractor will be included in the scope of works contract turnover and hence liable for tax <br />
21 May 2011<br />53<br />Client’s material<br />To avoid litigation and tax being levied on value of the clients material, the dealer should ensure to incorporate the following clauses in the contract. <br /> a) The employer to issue his material free of cost to the contractor for use in the<br /> execution of works contract.<br /> b) The free issue material supplied by the employer shall be held in the custody of the<br /> contractor as bailee and the title/ownership in such material will always remain with<br /> the employer<br /> c) Contractor to provide periodical statement of reconciliation of the material consumed<br /> and balance stock held by the contractor on behalf of the employer<br /> d) The material in possession of the contractor shall not be diverted for any other use <br /> e) The cost of the free issue material supplied by employer will be outside the scope of<br /> contract and shall not be the part of consideration to be paid to the contractor. <br />

When is a job established as a Works Contract – <br />FACTS IN THE CASE OF SUPREME COURT JUDGEMENT<br />OF K. RAHEJA DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION<br /><ul><li>Appellants were carrying on business as real estate developer.
They entered into Development agreement with owners of land.
The agreement was for carrying out construction on behalf of somebody else. </li></li></ul><li>Facts Contd….<br /><ul><li>The land owner transferred only the ownership of land to the purchaser and the appellant transferred structure by a separate agreement for construction.
The appellants were carrying out construction as developers for the prospective purchaser.
Agreement entered into before the completion of the unit, was considered as Works Contract.
Agreement entered into after the flat or unit already constructed would not be within the ambit of works contract.</li></li></ul><li>Latest……<br />However Supreme Court on Aug 19, 2008 has referred the judgment for reconsideration to a larger bench considering the Writ Petetion filed by L&T on the count that the judgement has adversely affected the entire construction industry.<br />

VAT Input for Works Contracts<br />VAT Credit is available when goods purchased are used for the purposes such as:<br /> SaleResale<br /> Interstate saleExport<br />Transfer to Branch or sent to consignment agent. – <br />Reversal Rule introduced.<br />Input not available on P&M used in Work Contracts.<br />?<br />
Audit of Accounts us 63<br />A reg. dealer whose turnover exceeds Rs. 100 lacs(Taxable turnover – Rs.20 Lacs) in any particular year needs to get his accounts audited by a specified authority within nine months from the end of the year.<br /> A dealer should submit the audit report within 30 days from the obtaining such report to the concerned commercial officer.<br />?<br />
Some Tips :-<br />Free Supply vs Price Deduction by Contractee<br />If the client in his WO mentions VAT – Extra, WCT – Extra<br />Unregistered sub-contractor is making any taxable purchases, <br />Compare outstate suppliers’ with CST rates with the Gujarat suppliers’ before & After VAT rate.<br />In case of stock transfer, if VAT reversal rate comes more than 2% go for CST sales in place of stock transfer.<br />VAT on Concrete is 15%, but VAT on Sand/Aggregate is 5%, so what you transfer is important. – Cement is Free issue.<br />?<br />
Back to Back Contracts<br />L&T Judgement – <br />Property passes on from the Sub-contractor to the Client and contractor is just an agent.<br />Impact - <br />Mr X has awarded contract to Mr Y at Rs.100 cr.<br />Mr Y has sublet the complete job to Mr Z at Rs.80 cr.<br />Mr Y does not need to pay any tax on the portion of Rs.20 cr as there is no element of transfer of property as per Sale of goods Act.<br />Suggestion – Projects with huge margins can be subletted to any sister concern to reduce VAT implications.<br />?<br />

Financial Express Posted: Tuesday, Aug 11, 2009Amendment in works contract major concern for infra industry<br />The object of the amendment is to include the value of goods received free of cost from the client as also to plug the loophole of splitting a contract into sale contract and works contract. Thus revenue may also seek to include the value of materials procured by the client from third parties and supplied to the contractor on free of cost (FOC) basis. <br />It is further provided that this condition will not apply to those works contracts, where either the execution of works contract has already started or any payment (whether in part or in full) has been made on or before the date of the amendment, i.e. 07.07.09, from which the said amendment becomes effective.<br />
Basics on Cenvat Credit<br />Documentation<br />Invoice with ST/Excise no. Of the party<br />Credit of Excise Duty can be taken for purchases directly from the manufacturer / first stage dealer / second stage dealer.<br />Cenvat on input services is allowed only on payment basis.<br />Giving both taxable and exempt services – <br /><ul><li>Either Maintain Separate Books of Accounts for taxable and exempt services</li></ul> OR<br /><ul><li>Pay 5% of value of exempted servicesOrPay an amount equivalent to Cenvat Credit attributable to input services used in relation to providing exempt services. </li></ul> Once an option is exercised it shall remain so during the year. If you wish to avail the option in red, you need to intimate the same to the dept. in specified format.<br />
Cenvat on Capital Goods – 50% utilised and 50% carry forward in the Service Tax Returns by availing the same in the same year<br />
Budget Amendments 2011<br />Point of Taxation Rules<br />Goods / Service that shall not constitute input - Any goods / services used for construction of a civil structure unless it is provided by a sub-contractor to the main contractor.<br />Similarly the definition of exempted services shall include taxable services which are partially exempted with the condition that no credit of input and input service shall be availed. Moreover it has been clarified that exempted service will include trading service. <br />38.1 A tariff rate of 5% excise duty is being prescribed on Ready-mix concrete (RMC). However these goods would attract the concessional 1% duty without CENVAT credit facility. <br />
Budget Amendments 2011<br />The Works Contract Rules, 2007 have been amended <br />To provide for restriction in availment of CENVAT credit to 40% of service tax paid on services relating to erection, commissioning and installation services, commercial or industrial construction services and construction of residential complex services in case service tax has been paid, without availing the abatement benefit under notification 1/2006.<br />
Pain of Taxation Rules<br />Intention of the Government<br />3. Rule 3 has been amended to provide that the point of taxation shall be as follows:<br /> (a) Date of invoice or payment, whichever is earlier, if the invoice is issued within the prescribed period of 14 days from the date of completion of the provision of service.<br /> (b) Date of completion of the provision of service or payment, if the invoice is not issued within the prescribed period as above.<br />No provision for Bad Debt – It only mentions if amount is refunded when service is not provided.<br />Cenvat Credit shall be allowed on booking basis, provided payment is made in 90 days.<br />
Pain of Taxation Rules<br />Concept of CSOS – Contract Exceeds 90 Days – <br /> Point of Taxation shall be the date of completion of the specified event stated in the contract which obligates payment.<br /> For example, in the case of construction services if the payments are linked to stage-by-stage completion of construction, the provision of service shall be deemed to be completed in part when each such stage of construction is completed.<br />Existing contracts to be covered under POT Rules from 1st July, 2011.<br />
Small Scale Sector Benefits<br />Individual and sole proprietor assessees with a turnover upto ` 60 Lakhs shall not be subject to audit;<br />Interest rate for all assessees (including firms and corporate) upto a <br /> turnover of ` 60 Lakhs shall be 3% less than the prescribed rate of 18% (w.e.f. 01-04-2011).<br />The period for making the payment in order to avail the benefit of <br /> reduced penalty under the second proviso to Section 78 shall be 90 days for assesses (including firms and corporate) having turnover upto ` 60 Lakhs.<br />
Concept of GTA<br />Service tax registration is required if you make payment to a goods transport agency, in relation to transport of goods by road in a goods carriage <br />
Exemptions<br />32/2004 Dt. 03/12/2004 - Abatement 75%.

Service tax levied on consideration earned by developer<br />• Prior to amendment in 2010, concept of ‘self-service’ existed<br />“construction of a complex (a new building) - intended for sale, -before, during or after construction (except in cases for which no sum is received from or on behalf of the prospective buyer by the builder before the grant of completion certificate by the competetent authority) shall be deemed to be service provided by the builder to the buyer”<br />Abatement scheme for builders also introduced.<br />Option to pay Service tax at the applicable rate on 25% of the Agreement value, provided no deduction of land is availed and no CENVAT credit is claimed<br />
Other points – Con. Of Complex<br />Parking Slots or Garage of Properties - Along with the apartment or flat, builders also sell parking slots to buyers. No service tax would be applicable for the amount paid for such parking slots.<br /> <br />Preferential Location Services - Builders many times will build internal roads, pavements, or maintain gardens for the development of the property complex. Such services would attract a service tax. Also any additional amount paid for a floor rise, an apartment with a specific number or a specific direction, apartment facing either a park, pool or sea , would cost the buyer a service tax.<br />Low Cost Housing Segment - In recent months, the real estate industry has developed various affordable properties worth less than Rs 20 Lakhs for the lower and middle income group. Properties belonging to this low cost housing segment would be exempt from service tax.<br />

Construction vs Repair of Road<br />Commercial and Industrial construction - <br /> includes <br /> a)construction, b) completion and c) finishing and <br /> d) repair, alteration, renovation or restoration <br /> The definition itself specifically excludes such services provided in respect of roads.<br />From the above it is evident that not only construction services but also repair services provided in respect of roads are exempted from tax. <br />Though the same may also fall under management, maintenance or repair service in terms of Section 65(64) of the Finance Act, 1994, <br /> In view of specific exclusion of repair services provided in respect of roads under Section 65(25b) of the Finance Act, 1994 the same can not be subjected to any tax.<br />
Construction vs Repair of Road<br />EXEMPTION TO MAINTENANCE OF ROADS<br /> NOTIFICATION NO. 24/2009 - SERVICE TAX, DATED 27-7-2009<br />Exemption of taxable services provided to any person by any other person in relation to management, maintenance or repair of roads<br />However from 2005 – 2009 the disputes are still going on?<br />
Also recent circular in response to an application made by Jaiprakash Associates issued in May, 2011<br />Issues :-<br />a) Applicability of ST on sub-contracts of various nature , when main contract is exempted /excluded from preview of services.<br />b) Can a principal contractor take responsibility of tax payment and ask sub contractors not to charge ST ?<br /> Service tax is, therefore, leviable on any taxable services provided, whether or not the services are provided by a person in his capacity as a sub-contractor and whether or not such services are used as input services.<br /> The fact that a given taxable service is intended for use as an input <br />service by another service provider does not alter the taxability of the <br />service provided.<br />

How to handle service tax audits<br />Keep all cenvat invoices ready.<br />Verify all receipts in your bank account.<br />Prepare the reconciliation as per the format proposed by the department.<br />Dept. normally gives you sufficient time for getting ready.<br />Audit may come for once in 4-5 years, but the complete period would get covered.<br />
Penal consequences<br />Interest on delayed payment of Service tax is 18% & 15% <br /><ul><li>For failure to furnish return
Rs.500 – Rs.2,000 per return</li></ul> The maximum penalty for delay in filing Service Tax return U/s. 70 is <br /> proposed to be enhanced from ` 2,000/- to ` 20,000/-; existing rate of <br /> penalty under rule 7C of the Service Tax Rules, 1994 to be retained.<br /><ul><li>Prosecution Provisions for offences like - </li></ul> a) rendition of services without raising invoices, <br /> b) availment of Cenvat credit without receipt of inputs/ input services, etc.<br /> c) Non-payment of service tax collected but not deposited for more than 6 months. <br />
At this Point in time, the question is whether the charge of VAT and service tax shall be overlapping.<br />The matter to a certain extent has been settled by the SC Judgement in IMAGIC CREATIVE PVT LTD Vs COMMISSIONER OF COMMERCIAL TAXES Appeal (civil) 252 of 2008 wherein it has been held <br />“28. Payments of service tax as also the VAT are mutually exclusive. Therefore, they should be held to be applicable having regard to the respective parameters of service tax and the sales tax as envisaged in a composite contract. It may consist of different elements providing for attracting different nature of levy. It is, therefore, difficult to hold that in a case of this nature, sales tax would be payable on the value of the entire contract; irrespective of the element of service provided.“<br />Ideal Thing for us be to clearly bifurcate the charge towards material by way of deemed sales calculations and charge towards labour on the face of the invoice. And Thus Service Tax needs to be charged on the labour portion and VAT needs to be charged on the Material Portion.<br />

<ul><li>Cost Oriented Planning – </li></ul> Convincing the EIC to prepare the Budgets is the biggest task. Because the forces are so dynamic, actual scenario is expected to be different from the work orders, hence he is not in a position to do so.<br /> Most of the times he would argue that because of delay in submission of drawings by the client, planning is not very easy. <br /> But to meet the Project Deadline / it is in the best interests of the client to break the work order quantities into monthly quantities.<br /> Further an overall cap is required to be kept on the total quantities to be consumed for the project. Monthly requirements can then be prepared on the basis of monthly budgets. <br />

Model of Accounting – Branch / Centralized<br /><ul><li>The model most prevalent, provided you have good team of accountants with you is the HO and Branch Model.
Branches maintain accounts at the construction site itself. Because if we have a smart accountant at the site that would serve as the best internal control measure.
Integration of accounts and Inventory would then be possible.
Complexity involved is you then need a perfect co-ordination between HO and Branches. Reconciliation between the two is required on a regular basis. As many a times HO would directly be making payment to Branch’s creditors without routing the same through the branch.
In case of centralised accounting the certification systems have to be perfect. You would need all the documents to be certified by the Site Incharge and respective area incharge before booking the same in accounts.</li></li></ul><li>Role of Site Accounts<br />
Role of Site Accounts – cont….<br />Onsite Integration Model for a Construction Site <br /><ul><li>Using cloud servers, access can be given to multiple locations without buying any software / hardware.
Stores Material Receipt entry can be passed from the site provided there is a proper internet connectivity.
When the purchase Invoices are received the same are certified by the stores department and the printed MIN is then attached behind the invoices.
Accounts then enters the rates of materials picking up the tracking number. Any deviations are settled by way of Debit / Credit Note.
Materials are then issued by way of Delivery Note to either the client / sub-contractors.</li></li></ul><li>Payment Advice Format<br />
Banking – Whether centralized or Branch wise<br /><ul><li>We are presently in a world where banks are all connected, so we may opt for a Centralized banking system, but then if you have a HO and the Branch Model, you need perfect controls in place before the HO releases funds.
Payment Authorization Vouchers – A system that can be implemented, similar to controls that we have in SAP.
Further if we have to plan the funds and ensure that funds generated from a particular site are available for only that site after HO takes out its share of profit, then it is advisable to have separate accounts for the branches.</li></li></ul><li>Managing the Financing Needs of the business<br /><ul><li>Limits with the Bank – Fund Based / Non-Fund based.
Non-Fund based Limits are of great importance in the construction sector, as for any Project that is about to begin, the client is willing to give Mobilisation Advances against Bank Gaurantees.
Hence as a consultant you can fight hard with the bank to secure best terms in the Non-fund based limits. With a good order book you can get away by giving 25-30% collateral to some of the private banks in the market.</li></li></ul><li>[Project Completion]<br />pptPlex Section Divider<br />The slides after this divider will be grouped into a section and given the label you type above.
