Now GST Registration at Just Rs.750* ( Terms & Conditions apply )
The goods and services tax (GST) is an indirect tax (or consumption tax) imposed in India on the supply of goods and services. This is a comprehensive step rate because it has absorbed almost all indirect taxes, with the exception of a few. Several steps as they are imposed at each stage of the production process, but are intended to be reimbursed to all parties at different stages of production other than the final consumer and destination-based tax because it is collected from the point of consumption and not from the point of origin as the previous taxes.
Goods and services are divided into five different tax sheets for tax collection: 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28% precious stones and 3% on gold.. However, petroleum products, alcoholic beverages and electricity are not taxed under the GST but are taxed separately by state governments, as required by the previous tax system.
In addition, on certain items such as luxury goods and tobacco products GST will be applied at above rate + GST cess of as applicable. Prior to the GST, the mandatory tax rate for most products was approximately 26.5% After the GST, most products should be in the range of 18%.
Under the GST, businesses whose turnover exceeds INR 40 lakhs (INR 20 lakhs for the Northeast and Hill states) during the previous financial year are compulsorily required to take registration under GST. The person can apply for voluntary Registration even if his turnover does not exceed the above limit.
Once the GST registration is taken, we need to charge the GST on every sale is made. If the turnover of Registered person exceed the required limit, then he needs to file the GST return on a monthly basis.
If the turnover is above 1.5 Cr then, you need to file the GSTR-1 on a monthly basis on or before 11th of next month.
If the turnover is below 1.5 Cr then, you need to file GSTR-1 on quarterly basis on or before 11th of next month subsequent to the quarter.
As GSTR-1 is a sales return only, hence there is an option available as per the turnover basis but incase of GSTR-3B which is a payment return so we need to file it on a monthly basis on or before the 20th of next month.
