Features of GST

Taxes covered: Most of the important indirect taxes of the centre and states are integrated under the GST. There are three important indirect taxes for the centre – the union excise duties, service tax and customs duties. Of these, the central excise duties and service taxes are brought under the GST. Customs duties as a tax on trade was not merged with the GST. States have two important indirect taxes – sales tax and state excise duties. Of these two, only the sales tax is merged with the GST.

The four-tier rate structure: The GST proposes a four-tier rate structure. The tax slabs are fixed at 5%, 12%, 18% and 28% besides the 0% tax on essentials. Essential commodities like food items are exempted from taxes under GST. Other consumer goods which are common items will be taxed at 5%.

Service tax rate under GST: Under the GST, there is a differential tax structure. A low tax rate of 5% is imposed on essential services. Common services are charged at 12% and some commercial services at 18%. A tax rate of 28% applies to luxury services. Several services like education provided by an educational institution, Post Offices, RBI etc. are exempted from service taxation.

Turnover limit under GST: GST is applicable when turnover of the business exceeds Rs 20 lakhs per year. Traders who would like to get input tax credit should make a voluntary registration even if their sales are below Rs 20 lakh per year. Traders supplying goods to other states have to register under GST, even if their sales is less than Rs 20 lakh. There is also a composition scheme for selected group of tax payers whose turnover is up to Rs 75 lakhs a year.

Tax revenue appropriation between the centre and states: The centre and states will share GST tax revenues at 50:50 ratio (except the IGST). The centre and states are merging their prominent indirect taxes under GST, both will get their own share in the GST. For this, the GST Council has adopted a dual GST with two components – the Central GST (CGST) and the State GST (SGST).

There is sharing of GST by the centre and the tax accruing state at 50:50 ratio. For example, if a good is taxed at 18%, out of this, 9% will go to the centre and the remaining 9% will go to the state where the good is consumed.

Integrated GST (IGST) The IGST comes to play when the commodity is produced in one state and is traded to another state (interstate trade). In this case, the share of SGST should go to the consuming state.
