16
Applicability & Rate under GST Regime
 GST on Exports would be zero rated, but on the other hand in “import”
IGST will be levied.
 GST does not apply on Alcohol & petroleum products.
 But in the mean time tobacco products should be in the frame of GST.
 In fact, Gov. Can levy extra % of tax apart from GST .
 Basic threshold limit for Goods & Services shall be RS. 20 Lakh & for
North east Region (NER) Rs. 10.00 Lakh.
 Full exemption is applicable on basic necessities goods like Flour,
rice, pulses, textiles, buildings, education & healthcare etc.
 Gross Turnover of Goods up to Rs. 1.50 cr may be assigned
exclusively to the states.
 Gross Turnover of Services up to Rs. 1.50 cr may be assigned
exclusively to the center.
 Assesse can have an option to pay tax as per composition scheme
or may join the GST law whose turnover is up to Rs. 1.50 cr.
 But, those assesse whose turnover is and above Rs. 1.50 Cr will need
to be within the framework of GST.
17
A four-tier structure for Goods and Services Tax (GST)
comprising a lower rate of 6 per cent, two standard rates
of 12 per cent and 18 per cent, and a higher rate of 26
per cent with an additional cess for luxury and demerit
goods were proposed
GST rate on Gold Bullion/Jewelry might be 4%
Around 70 per cent of the taxable base is proposed to be
taxed at either 18 per cent, 12 per cent or 6 per cent, with
more than 50 per cent of the items to be taxed at 12 per
cent or 18 per cent. Ultra-luxury items like high-end cars
and demerit goods like tobacco, cigarettes, pan masala
and aerated drinks, comprising about 25 per cent of the
taxable base, would attract an additional cess over and
above the higher rate of 26 per cent.
18
Impact of GST
Tthe total impact of the proposed rate structure on
Consumer Price Index (CPI)-based inflation rate will be (-)
0.06 per cent.
Under the proposed GST rate structure, the inflation
impact on constituents of CPI such as health services, fuel
and lighting and clothing is estimated to be 0.56 per cent,
0.05 per cent and 0.23 per cent, respectively, while for
transport it is estimated at (-) 0.65 per cent, education at (-)
0.08 per cent and housing at (-) 0.09 per cent. Total
revenue collection under the proposed GST structure is
estimated at Rs 8.72 lakh crore (based on 2015-16
estimates).

Functioning of GST
21
Others Areas of GST
 As far as registration decision is concerned, a supplier of Goods & services
would be made when GST is payable.
 Then the supplier would have to necessarily register & he would have no
other option.
 The Place of supply would determine first as to whether the transaction is
in India or Outside India. If it is outside India it would not be liable to GST.
 The POT in GST is the Point of supply of Goods. In case of service , then it
is somehow based on the POT rules of Service tax.
 Under the GST structure , the tax would be collected by the states where
the goods or services are consumed .
 Hence there should be heavy losses for the producer states & so the
center would be required to compensate them for their revenue losses.
 Petroleum products, Alcohols/Liquor , Stamp/Custom duty, Consm.
& Sale of Electricity etc. are not covered under the GST purview.
22
 If a company is having four branches in four different states, then all the
four branches will be considered as Taxable Person.
 Importer have to register under both CGST & SGST as well.
 Apart from Export rate, similar benefit may be given to Special Economy
Zone.
 GST paid by exporter on the procurement of Goods & services will be
refunded later on if paid.
 Each taxpayer would be allotted a PAN linked taxpayer identification
number with a total of 13/15 digits.
 This would bring the GST PAN-linked system in line with the prevailing
PAN-based system for Income tax facilitating data exchange and
taxpayer compliance.
 The taxpayer would need to submit periodical returns to both the central
& state GST authorities.
 Common standardized return for all taxes (with different account heads
for CGST, SGST, IGST) can come into picture.
 Common standardized Challan for all taxes (with different account heads
for CGST, SGST,IGST) can come into picture.
 ITC credit can also be verified on the basis of the returns filed and
revenues reconciled against Challan data from banks.
23
Key Amendments in GST Bill
Dropping 1% Additional on Inter-State Supply of
Goods.
Full Compensation to States upto 5 Years.
Apportionment of IGST i.e. ( States also shares IGST
amt along with centre)
 IGST term to be replaced with GST on supplies in
the course of inter-state trade or commerce.
Inclusion of CGST & IGST in tax devolution to
states.
24
Sector wise impact of GST
After implementation of GST, it seems that there is going to
be a positive impact on various Industry.
Some Glimpse of GST Impact of various Industry :
Automobiles Industry
Rate of Tax is expected b/w 20-22% as compared to 30-
47% in current scenario.
Drive overall demand & reduce cost for end user by about
10%.
Transportation time & overall cost will be reduced.
Cost of Logistics will be curtailed by almost 30-40%.
Key beneficiaries : Maruti Suzuki, Hero MotoCorp, Bajaj
Auto, Eicher Motors, Ashok Leyland
25
Consumer Durables
 Reduction of the Price gap between organized & unorganized sector.
 Warehouse/logistics costs will be curtailed.
 Improve the operational profitability by almost 300-400 bps.
Key beneficiaries: Havells, Voltas, Blue Star, Bajaj Electricals, Hitachi
Logistics
 Boost demand for high tonnage trucks.
 Overall reduction in transportation costs.
 Improving growth opportunities for the organized players.
 Facilitate seamless inter-state flow of Goods.
Key beneficiaries : VRL Logistics, GATI Ltd, Blue Dart, Snowman Logistics
Cement
 Tax rate expected to decline to 18-20% as compared to 27-32%.
 Able to save their logistics costs/transportation costs.
Key beneficiaries : ACC, Ultratech, JK Cement, Shree Cement
26
Banking & Financial services
 Under GST , effective tax rate is expected to increase to 18-20% as 14% earlier.
 Moderate increase in the cost of financial services like loan processing fees,
debit/credit charges, insurance premium etc.
IT
 Tax Rate is expected to increase to 18-20%.
 Litigation around taxability of canned software will probably end under GST
Regime.
Textile /Garments
 May be negatively impacted in case the output tax rate is high.
 No clarity whether a lower rate will continue in the proposed Tax regime.
 No clarity about the duty drawback benefits.
Key Players : Arvind, Raymond, Page Industries
Media
 Tax rate of around 18-20% as compared to 20-21%.
 Post GST, we expect concessional rate in news & Print sector.
Key beneficiary : Dish TV
27
Flaws of the GST Model
 Major flaws of this model is that the local dealers have to pay CGST
in addition to SGST.
 Because of no differentiation between “goods & services” , services
supply within the state would attract SGST at each stage in the
supply chain ,but in the mean time Assesse have to pay CGST also.
 The issue which still needs to be resolved are the revenue sharing
between States & center & a framework for exemption , threshold
limit as well as composition scheme.
 Introduction of GST model could affect negatively (than positively)
to few Industries/sectors.
 Under the GST Model , the state should face heavy losses in terms
of tax collection but they also get compensated on the other hand by
the states.
 Infact some states are of the view that there should not be any time –
frame for compensation scheme.
• China - 17%
• Indonesia - 10%
• Philippines -10%
• Taiwan (Chinese Taipei) - 5%
• UK -17.5%
• Australia -10%
• France -19.6%
• Germany -16%
• Denmark -25%

Conclusion
 GST being a dynamic & comprehensive legislation which shall replace most
of the Indirect Taxes of our Country.
 Since it is a major indirect tax reform in India, there would be new legislation
and procedures.
 Most concerns expressed about the implementation of GST can be divided
into 3 categories :
i) Design Issues ii) Operational Issues iii) Infrastructure Issues
 For GST to be effective there should be identical GST laws /procedures
across states as well as the centre.
 Few state Govt. have recently indicated their opposition to the
implementation of GST at the present juncture.
 In the mean time ,those state who are not opposing against the
implementation of GST may want assurances that their existing revenues will
be protected.
 So, it is now universally acknowledged and recognized that the GST , in
whatever form should be introduced at the earliest as a fundamental fiscal
reform measure.
 Now, on June 14,2016, the CG has put the Draft Model GST law on Public
domain.
31
 The long delayed GST Bill has finally got the nod of the Rajya Sabha as well as
in Lok Shabha in the 2nd week of August ,2016.
 The Rajya Sabha has unanimously passed the ambitious GST Bill with over 2/3
majority.
 All the Political Party had already given their consent provided their demand
had been considered except AIADMK party.
 The Draft GST model Law shall be referred as the Central/State GST Act, 2016.
 The availability of Draft Model GST Law enables the Trade & Industry to plan
the transition from the existing Indirect tax regime to the GST regime.
 The Government has already missed its pre decided deadline of 1st April 2016,
let’s hope that GST law will be effective from 1st April 2017.
 Further , the Chartered Accountants & the Allied Professionals are going to play
the leading role in helping the business houses as well as corporate also.
 GST will be the best example of cooperative federalism.
 Together we will take India to new heights of progress.
 In Nutshell , it is a biggest tax reform till date in our country.

NCAER pegs this at 0.9-1 International competitiveness Go Up by about 5%. Increased FDI Growth in overall Revenues. Prevention of unhealthy competition among states. Reduction in purchase price.
  • 16. 16 Applicability & Rate under GST Regime  GST on Exports would be zero rated, but on the other hand in “import” IGST will be levied.  GST does not apply on Alcohol & petroleum products.  But in the mean time tobacco products should be in the frame of GST.  In fact, Gov. Can levy extra % of tax apart from GST .  Basic threshold limit for Goods & Services shall be RS. 20 Lakh & for North east Region (NER) Rs. 10.00 Lakh.  Full exemption is applicable on basic necessities goods like Flour, rice, pulses, textiles, buildings, education & healthcare etc.  Gross Turnover of Goods up to Rs. 1.50 cr may be assigned exclusively to the states.  Gross Turnover of Services up to Rs. 1.50 cr may be assigned exclusively to the center.  Assesse can have an option to pay tax as per composition scheme or may join the GST law whose turnover is up to Rs. 1.50 cr.  But, those assesse whose turnover is and above Rs. 1.50 Cr will need to be within the framework of GST.
  • 17. 17 A four-tier structure for Goods and Services Tax (GST) comprising a lower rate of 6 per cent, two standard rates of 12 per cent and 18 per cent, and a higher rate of 26 per cent with an additional cess for luxury and demerit goods were proposed GST rate on Gold Bullion/Jewelry might be 4% Around 70 per cent of the taxable base is proposed to be taxed at either 18 per cent, 12 per cent or 6 per cent, with more than 50 per cent of the items to be taxed at 12 per cent or 18 per cent. Ultra-luxury items like high-end cars and demerit goods like tobacco, cigarettes, pan masala and aerated drinks, comprising about 25 per cent of the taxable base, would attract an additional cess over and above the higher rate of 26 per cent.
  • 18. 18 Impact of GST Tthe total impact of the proposed rate structure on Consumer Price Index (CPI)-based inflation rate will be (-) 0.06 per cent. Under the proposed GST rate structure, the inflation impact on constituents of CPI such as health services, fuel and lighting and clothing is estimated to be 0.56 per cent, 0.05 per cent and 0.23 per cent, respectively, while for transport it is estimated at (-) 0.65 per cent, education at (-) 0.08 per cent and housing at (-) 0.09 per cent. Total revenue collection under the proposed GST structure is estimated at Rs 8.72 lakh crore (based on 2015-16 estimates).
  • 21. 21 Others Areas of GST  As far as registration decision is concerned, a supplier of Goods & services would be made when GST is payable.  Then the supplier would have to necessarily register & he would have no other option.  The Place of supply would determine first as to whether the transaction is in India or Outside India. If it is outside India it would not be liable to GST.  The POT in GST is the Point of supply of Goods. In case of service , then it is somehow based on the POT rules of Service tax.  Under the GST structure , the tax would be collected by the states where the goods or services are consumed .  Hence there should be heavy losses for the producer states & so the center would be required to compensate them for their revenue losses.  Petroleum products, Alcohols/Liquor , Stamp/Custom duty, Consm. & Sale of Electricity etc. are not covered under the GST purview.
  • 22. 22  If a company is having four branches in four different states, then all the four branches will be considered as Taxable Person.  Importer have to register under both CGST & SGST as well.  Apart from Export rate, similar benefit may be given to Special Economy Zone.  GST paid by exporter on the procurement of Goods & services will be refunded later on if paid.  Each taxpayer would be allotted a PAN linked taxpayer identification number with a total of 13/15 digits.  This would bring the GST PAN-linked system in line with the prevailing PAN-based system for Income tax facilitating data exchange and taxpayer compliance.  The taxpayer would need to submit periodical returns to both the central & state GST authorities.  Common standardized return for all taxes (with different account heads for CGST, SGST, IGST) can come into picture.  Common standardized Challan for all taxes (with different account heads for CGST, SGST,IGST) can come into picture.  ITC credit can also be verified on the basis of the returns filed and revenues reconciled against Challan data from banks.
  • 23. 23 Key Amendments in GST Bill Dropping 1% Additional on Inter-State Supply of Goods. Full Compensation to States upto 5 Years. Apportionment of IGST i.e. ( States also shares IGST amt along with centre)  IGST term to be replaced with GST on supplies in the course of inter-state trade or commerce. Inclusion of CGST & IGST in tax devolution to states.
  • 24. 24 Sector wise impact of GST After implementation of GST, it seems that there is going to be a positive impact on various Industry. Some Glimpse of GST Impact of various Industry : Automobiles Industry Rate of Tax is expected b/w 20-22% as compared to 30- 47% in current scenario. Drive overall demand & reduce cost for end user by about 10%. Transportation time & overall cost will be reduced. Cost of Logistics will be curtailed by almost 30-40%. Key beneficiaries : Maruti Suzuki, Hero MotoCorp, Bajaj Auto, Eicher Motors, Ashok Leyland
  • 25. 25 Consumer Durables  Reduction of the Price gap between organized & unorganized sector.  Warehouse/logistics costs will be curtailed.  Improve the operational profitability by almost 300-400 bps. Key beneficiaries: Havells, Voltas, Blue Star, Bajaj Electricals, Hitachi Logistics  Boost demand for high tonnage trucks.  Overall reduction in transportation costs.  Improving growth opportunities for the organized players.  Facilitate seamless inter-state flow of Goods. Key beneficiaries : VRL Logistics, GATI Ltd, Blue Dart, Snowman Logistics Cement  Tax rate expected to decline to 18-20% as compared to 27-32%.  Able to save their logistics costs/transportation costs. Key beneficiaries : ACC, Ultratech, JK Cement, Shree Cement
  • 26. 26 Banking & Financial services  Under GST , effective tax rate is expected to increase to 18-20% as 14% earlier.  Moderate increase in the cost of financial services like loan processing fees, debit/credit charges, insurance premium etc. IT  Tax Rate is expected to increase to 18-20%.  Litigation around taxability of canned software will probably end under GST Regime. Textile /Garments  May be negatively impacted in case the output tax rate is high.  No clarity whether a lower rate will continue in the proposed Tax regime.  No clarity about the duty drawback benefits. Key Players : Arvind, Raymond, Page Industries Media  Tax rate of around 18-20% as compared to 20-21%.  Post GST, we expect concessional rate in news & Print sector. Key beneficiary : Dish TV
  • 27. 27 Flaws of the GST Model  Major flaws of this model is that the local dealers have to pay CGST in addition to SGST.  Because of no differentiation between “goods & services” , services supply within the state would attract SGST at each stage in the supply chain ,but in the mean time Assesse have to pay CGST also.  The issue which still needs to be resolved are the revenue sharing between States & center & a framework for exemption , threshold limit as well as composition scheme.  Introduction of GST model could affect negatively (than positively) to few Industries/sectors.  Under the GST Model , the state should face heavy losses in terms of tax collection but they also get compensated on the other hand by the states.  Infact some states are of the view that there should not be any time – frame for compensation scheme.

  • 30. 30 Conclusion  GST being a dynamic & comprehensive legislation which shall replace most of the Indirect Taxes of our Country.  Since it is a major indirect tax reform in India, there would be new legislation and procedures.  Most concerns expressed about the implementation of GST can be divided into 3 categories : i) Design Issues ii) Operational Issues iii) Infrastructure Issues  For GST to be effective there should be identical GST laws /procedures across states as well as the centre.  Few state Govt. have recently indicated their opposition to the implementation of GST at the present juncture.  In the mean time ,those state who are not opposing against the implementation of GST may want assurances that their existing revenues will be protected.  So, it is now universally acknowledged and recognized that the GST , in whatever form should be introduced at the earliest as a fundamental fiscal reform measure.  Now, on June 14,2016, the CG has put the Draft Model GST law on Public domain.
  • 31. 31  The long delayed GST Bill has finally got the nod of the Rajya Sabha as well as in Lok Shabha in the 2nd week of August ,2016.  The Rajya Sabha has unanimously passed the ambitious GST Bill with over 2/3 majority.  All the Political Party had already given their consent provided their demand had been considered except AIADMK party.  The Draft GST model Law shall be referred as the Central/State GST Act, 2016.  The availability of Draft Model GST Law enables the Trade & Industry to plan the transition from the existing Indirect tax regime to the GST regime.  The Government has already missed its pre decided deadline of 1st April 2016, let’s hope that GST law will be effective from 1st April 2017.  Further , the Chartered Accountants & the Allied Professionals are going to play the leading role in helping the business houses as well as corporate also.  GST will be the best example of cooperative federalism.  Together we will take India to new heights of progress.  In Nutshell , it is a biggest tax reform till date in our country.
