All About the advantages of the Goods and Service tax
Q.: What are the advantages of the GST?
The following are some of the GST’s advantages:
- Intended for use in business and industry.
- Easy compliance: The GST regime in India would be built on a solid and comprehensive IT system. As a result, all tax payer services, such as registrations, returns, payments, and so on, will be available online, making compliance simple and transparent.
- Tax rate and structure uniformity: GST will ensure that indirect tax rates and structures are common throughout the country and will therefore improve security and business ease. In other words, GST would make doing business in the country tax neutral, regardless of where it is done.
- Removal of wide portfolio: A system of seamless tax credits across the value chain and across state borders would ensure that tax cascading is kept to a minimum. This would reduce the unintentional costs of doing business.
- Improved competitiveness: Lowering transaction costs would eventually lead to increased competitiveness for trade and industry.
- Gain access to producers and exporters: The incorporation of major Central and State taxes into GST, the complete and comprehensive set-off of input goods and services, and the phase-out of the Central Sales Tax (CST) would lower the cost of locally manufactured goods and services. This will boost Indian exports by increasing the competitiveness of Indian goods and services in the international market. The consistency of tax rates and procedures across the country will also help to reduce compliance costs.
- Intended for both the central and state governments.
- Simple and straightforward administration: GST is replacing a number of indirect taxes at the federal and state levels. GST would be simpler and easier to administer than all other indirect taxes charged by the Centre and States to date if it were supported by a comprehensive end-to-end IT infrastructure.
- Better leakage controls: Due to a robust IT infrastructure, GST would result in better tax compliance. Because of the seamless transfer of input tax credit from one stage to the next in the value chain, there is an in-built mechanism in the design of GST that would incentivize tax compliance by traders.
- Increased revenue efficiency: GST is expected to reduce the cost of the government’s collection of tax revenues, resulting in increased revenue efficiency for the consumer.
- A single, transparent tax proportional to the value of goods and services: The cost of most goods and services in the country today is laden with many hidden taxes due to multiple indirect taxes levied by the Centre and States, as well as incomplete or no input tax credits available at progressive stages of value addition. There will be simply one tax from the manufacturer to the customer under GST, resulting in tax transparency for the final consumer.
- Reduction in total tax burden: As a result of efficiency gains and leakage prevention, the overall tax burden on most commodities will decrease, benefiting consumers.
Q.: In India, how would GST be implemented?
Given India’s federal structure, there will be two components of GST: Central GST (CGST) and State GST (SGST) (SGST). GST will be levied across the value chain by both the Centre and the States at the same time. Every supply of goods and services will be taxed. The Centre would levy and collect the Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST), while the States would levy and collect the State Goods and Services Tax (SGST) on all transactions within a State. At each stage, the CGST input tax credit would be available for discharging the CGST duty on the output. Likewise, SGST paid on inputs would be allowed to be used to pay SGST on output. There would be no credit cross-utilization allowed.
