GST Composition Scheme

 

GST Composition Scheme

Composition Scheme acts as an alternative method for levying a tax under GST. Small businesses registered under the GST composition scheme can pay GST at a fixed rate of turnover every quarter and file quarterly GST returns. Composition levy would be generally related to small taxpayers who are supplying goods and services or both to the end consumer with low turnover. Further, the composition scheme has been designed with the aim to make compliance more accessible and cost-effective for the taxpayers. In this article, let us look at the composition scheme under GST in detail.

Eligibility Criteria

Special Eligibility

In the case of states under a special category, except Jammu & Kashmir and Uttarakhand, the limit of annual turnover has increased from Rs.50 lakhs to Rs.75 lakhs.
