very supplier of goods or services or both is required to obtain GST registration in the State or the Union Territory from where he makes the taxable supply, if his total turnover (also known as aggregate turnover) is more than the limit specified by GST council. In addition, the Government has specified category of persons who are mandatorily required to obtain registration. Broadly every person has to apply for registration in every State in which he is liable, within thirty days from the date on which he becomes liable to registration. GST Registration offers the following advantages:
GST has brought forth greater transparency with its implementation. Earlier there was a lot of confusion about taxability of products or services under VAT and Service Tax. There were goods which were taxable in one state but exempted in other state. This caused much confusion among the dealers. But, now in GST a Negative List of Goods and Services is created, enumerating the goods or services not taxable. All Goods and services not mentioned in the list are taxable under GST.
GST has brought with it uniformity and reduction in compliances. In old system of VAT and Service tax there were different compliance for both. In fact, in VAT there were different compliances as per State rules. All these multiple laws and compliances burdened the system and dealers which resulted in unnecessary compliances.
There was a need for uniformity in compliances and GST does that. Common returns are introduced across all formats with taxpayers having options to file returns monthly or quarterly. This has led to increase in efficiency and reduction of compliances.
One of the purposes of introduction of GST was to create “One Market One Nation One Tax”. This means that goods and services of same nature will be taxed and same tax rate across all markets in the country.
Earlier there were different rates of taxation for same type of goods in different states. But now there is a single tax system in place.
Implementation of GST helped in avoiding cascading effect (i.e. tax on tax) in India. Which was present in the earlier system of VAT and Service Tax.
Earlier credit in VAT and Service Tax was available to suppliers. But there was no credit available for taxes paid under other laws. It means, that person who was supplying goods, was charging VAT also on Excise Duty paid at the time of manufacturing of such goods, which resulted in “Tax on Tax”.
In earlier VAT system, there were states which did not have online facility. The entire process of registration to filing of returns was complicated and cumbersome. Earlier businesses had to go to respective departments to obtain for GST registration.
In GST the whole system from registration to end process of surrendering of registration, from filing of returns to amending of returns have been made online.
In GST, each business can apply for registration online. The process for registration is easy understand and follow. Similarly, return filing is also made easy in GST.
Earlier in VAT and Service Tax Regime, the credit was not available for cross utilization. For ex: credit of VAT was not available for Service Tax and vice versa.
However, since the inception of GST, cross utilization of credit is also made available. Input Tax Credit can be setoff with IGST, CGST and SGST payable.
