Compilation of all notifications issued ON 15.11.2017

Recently 23rd GST council meeting has been held in which various decisions were declared. All the notifications were issued recently in this respect. Lets summarise this with the help of this update-

This mean that the composition scheme dealer has to pay the taxes on advaces. All other assessee need not to pay the tax on advances. We are failed to understand why this provision has been kept for composition scheme?

Secondly, this is applicable on supply of goods only and not supply of services. Hence, there is no need to pay the GST on advance received for supply of goods. But service providers will continue to pay GST on advance received.

Lastly, there is no limit for non-payment of GST on advance received. Earlier it was contended that the exemption is available to assessee of turnover of ₹ 1.5 crore. But this notification has clarified that it is applicable to all except those who has opted for composition scheme.

  • Notification 65/2017 CT dated 15.11.2017 exempt suppliers of services through an e-commerce platform from obtaining compulsory registration. As a result, all service providers, whether supplying intra-State, inter-State or through ecommerce operator, will be exempt from obtaining GST registration, provided their aggregate turnover is below the twenty lacs. Earlier there was compulsory registration under such persons.
  • Notification 64/2017 CT dated 15.11.2017 specifies that from October 2017 onwards, if the total amount of central tax payable is nil;says that there will be less liability the late fees will be paid as ₹ 10/- per day under CGST Act. The interpretation of this says that this less late fee will be payable if the liability of CGST is nil. If there is liability of IGST Act but no liability in CGST then also the less amount will be payable. Although it seems to be very absurd interpretation but notification reads like that only.

 In case there is tax to be paid then late fees is increased to ₹ 25/- per day. This late fees reduction is in respect of GSTR 3B. For the other returns, the normal late fee of ₹ 200/- per day will be payable.

  • Due dates of many returns have been extended as follows vide notification-

Time limit of filing GSTR-2 and GSTR-3 for the months of July, 2017 to March 2018 will be decided soon. Again there is dispute in press conference and press release.

Although it was said earlier that the person having turnover below Rs. 1.5 crore need to file quarterly return and pay tax on quarterly basis. But the notification is going contrary to the same. It says only GSTR-1 is to be filed on quarterly basis but the GSTR-3B to be filed monthly basis. Hence the tax is to be paid on monthly basis.
