Central Tax Notifications:

Composition Scheme- Notification 3 & 8/2017:

Composition scheme threshold has been notified to be 75 lakhs (earlier recommended only). This will be beneficial to small businesses.

Notification 3 contains the composition scheme rules which had been issued ealrier on 17th May.

Reverse Charge- Notification 5/2017:

The persons who only supply goods/services on which reverse charge applies, are exempted from registering under GST registration.

For example, For example, Ola Cabs enlist drivers to ply their cars. Drivers are providing chauffeur/driving services to Ola and Ola is the service receiver.

Ola pays GST on the drivers’ services on reverse charge basis. Drivers are not required to register under GST thus removing the burden of tax compliance from individuals with limited resources (drivers) to large companies (Ola) with enough resources.

Sections coming into force-Notification 1 & 9/2017:

With the Notification of 19th June and 28th June, most of the CGST Act is now in force. Only sections 51 & 52 (TDS & TCS respectively) are not applicable as the government has relaxed TDS & TCS provisions for the time being to give more time to the e-commerce sellers.

Sections 42(9) & 43(9) are not applicable.

These clauses say that if the output tax liability is reduced (or input tax credit is increased) due to a debit note (or a credit note) [mismatch of invoices reconciliation] then such amount shall be refunded by crediting electronic ledger. This is not applicable right now as there will not be any reconciliation for 2 months.
