Let’s start:

Under the GST law, a normal taxpayer will be required to furnish three returns monthly and one annual return, It means total 37 returns need to be file in GST law.. Similarly, there are separate returns for a taxpayer registered under the composition scheme, taxpayer registered as an Input Service Distributor, a person liable to deduct or collect the tax (TDS/TCS).Below are 11 kind of GST returns which are explained in the manner of who is required to file, what information is required to file, and relevant date of filing.

Now Next topic of this part is Impact of GST on various sectors:

  • Impact on Traders: The impact of tax on the wholesaler or retailer would be limited

to the value addition. The tax paid at earlier stages (except CGST & SGST of other

States) would be available as set off for payment of GST on supplies. Therefore, traders

would prefer to buy/receive supplies with invoice pre-and post GST. It is important to note that CGST and SGST will levy on Intra state Trade and IGST will levy on Inter State Trade.Another impact on small scale traders is that they are eligible for the composition scheme provided their aggregate turnover in the preceding financial year did not exceed Rs. 50 lakh.

  • Impact on Manufacturers: At present, excise duty is paid on the event of

manufacture of excisable goods and VAT on the sale of goods. VAT/CST is computedon sale price+ excise duty paid. With the shift of taxable event from manufacture tosupply of goods, the valuation of goods could be simplified. Under GST, actual valuereceived as a consideration for the supply of goods would be subject to GST with some exceptions. Under present Excise law Manufacturers having a value of clearances of less than Rs. 150 Lakhs are exempt .The matter of administration has not been resolved as on date.

  • Impact on Service Providers:In present service tax,it is a destination based levy, the burden of which is borne by the end customer. GST is Consumtion Based levy is consumption based tax. And under earlier taxation system, VAT credit was not available to service provider but in GST, it is available.


  • Impact on Consumers: There would be free trade and commerce between States andthroughout the country which would provide more options to the consumer.In VAT system, it was seen that price of a same product was different in different states due to variation in taxes. But with GST, this problem will be solved.


  • Impact on Work Contract : Work contact is a combination of contracts involving material and labour. On Material portion, VAT is levy and on service Portion, Service tax is levy but under GST regime, on whole amount, GST will be levy.


  • Impact on leasing companies: Under earlier law,if there is transfer of right to use goods involving transfer of effective controland possession, then it is subject to VAT; otherwise, it is subject to service tax but Under GST it would be a service.


  • Impact on Country : GST law will impact country in various ways like expected increase in FDI, Single point taxation, Increase in revenue, Simplified tax laws,etc.


Under GST,the basis of charge is SUPPLY.In part 7, we will understand this concept.
