Benefits of GST registration

What are the benefits of GST Registration?

GST registration has various benefits here we have listed some of them:

GST has eliminated the cascading effect of Tax: GST is a form of Indirect tax that is designed to subsume all the indirect taxes under one umbrella. GST has reduced the cascading effect of tax that was evident earlier.

Registration threshold is higher: Earlier under VAT any business that had a turnover of more than Rs. 5 Lakh was liable to pay VAT. This limit was different in different states. Also, the service providers were exempted from service tax if the turnover was less than Rs.10 lakh.

Under GST this threshold has been increased to Rs.20 lakh which has exempted many small traders and service providers.

Composition Scheme for the small businesses: Small businesses are benefitted as they can exercise the option for utilizing the composition scheme. The composition scheme has considerably brought down the compliance and the tax burden on small businesses.

Simple and easy online procedure: The process of GST registration is completely online and it is super simple. All you need to do is submit the documents required to our experts.

Fewer Compliances: Under GST there is only one return that is to be filed. There are around 11 returns under GST out of which all of them can be filed online. IndiaFilings can also help you to file your GST returns.

Improved efficiency of the logistics: Under the Goods and Services Tax Act the restrictions on the interstate movement of the goods have been reduced considerably. This reduction in unnecessary logistics costs has caused profits for the businesses that are involved in the supply of goods through transportation.

The unorganized sector is now regularized under GST: Before the GST era, a lot of industries in India like construction and textile were largely unregulated and unorganized. Under GST there are provisions where the compliances can be met online. This has brought considerable accountability and regulation to these industries.

Composition Scheme under GST

What is the composition scheme under GST?

The composition scheme under the GST Act has minimized the burden of compliance for the small taxpayers. The Government came up with the composition scheme wherein the taxpayer with a turnover of less than Rs.10 crore choose not to register as a normal taxpayer. Instead, the taxpayer may choose to get registered under the Composition scheme and pay taxes on the supplies at a nominal rate. Here under the composition scheme the taxpayer is not eligible to issue a tax invoice and also cannot utilize the input tax credit.

Benefits of registering as a Composite taxpayer

Here are some benefits of registering as a Composite taxpayer under GST:

Limited Compliance: When the taxpayer is registering as a composite taxpayer he is required to furnish the quarterly return and should not be worried about other compliance burdens.

Limited Tax Liability: The major reason to register as a Taxpayer is that under the composition scheme the tax rate is such that the taxes paid by the taxpayer are nominal.

GST Return Filing

What is GST return filing?

A person having a valid GST registration is required to file the GST returns that contain the details of the income of the taxpayer. The GST return filings can be done using our Ledgers GST Software.

Why Ledgers GST Software for GST return filings?

Ledgers GST software has been on a roll since the introduction.

  • It helps in converting the estimate to Invoice seamlessly.
  • The taxpayer can track payments and receivables
  • Payment gateway integration.

A GST return filing form has to include the following details:

  • Output GST (On sales)
  • Sales
  • Input tax credit ( GST paid on the purchases)
  • Purchases.

Failure to file GST returns can lead to penalties, interests, and late fees too.

Penalties, Interests and Late fees

What happens if the taxpayer fails to file the GST returns?

GST Cancellation: In case if a person is failing to file the GST returns it can lead to penalties and the cancellation of the GST registration. Also if the taxpayer has not filed the GST returns for six months then the GST registration will be canceled. Here the person will not be able to obtain another GST registration unless the late filing penalty is paid. So it is always better to file the GST returns on time.

Nil GST returns: Even when the person has no business still he has to file the Nil GST returns. Again failure to file the GST returns can lead to a penalty.

Interest on Late GST payment: Also in case, the taxpayer is remitting the GST payment late to the government then the person has to pay the interest at the rate of 18%. Once you subscribe to our services we have regular followups, which help avoid the penalties, interests, and late fees.
