Why GST May Boost Gold Smuggling, Illegal Jewellery Sales?

Mumbai: A hike in taxes on gold under GST (Goods and Services Tax) could stoke under-the-counter buying and drive up appetite for precious metal smuggled into the country, where millions of people store big chunks of their wealth in bullion and jewellery.

As part of a new nationwide tax regime that kicked in on July 1, the GST on gold has jumped to 3 per cent from 1.2 per cent previously, with traders and buyers saying the move will likely force more transactions into the black market.

"Three per cent is too much. I preferred to buy without receipts. The jeweller did not have any problem," said a middle-aged buyer, who declined to be identified after making purchases on Monday at the country's biggest bullion market, Zaveri Bazaar in Mumbai.

Smaller shops could be more inclined to sell without receipts, potentially hitting sales at big jewellers that keep to the rules, said Harshad Ajmera, the proprietor of JJ Gold House, a wholesaler in the eastern Indian city Kolkata.

"Just to save 1 per cent, some customers were earlier buying gold without receipts. With the 3 per cent GST, now many more will be tempted to make unofficial purchases from small jewellers," Ajmera said.

The tax hike could also encourage more smuggling into the world's second biggest gold consumer, which buys almost all its bullion abroad. Gold smuggling has been rife since India raised import duties on the metal to 10 per cent in a series of hikes to August 2013, looking to curb demand to narrow a gaping current account deficit

The World Gold Council estimates smuggling networks imported up to 120 tonnes of gold into India in 2016.

"The GST rate has increased the incentive to bring in smuggled gold. The government should reduce import duty and make smuggling unviable," said Aditya Pethe, a director at Waman Hari Pethe Jewellers in Mumbai.
 
The country's legal imports typically stand at around 800 tonnes a year, with the metal used in everything from investment to religious donations and wedding gifts.
 
"A lower import duty would increase legal imports and ultimately legal sales. Tax revenue would go up instead of going down," said Daman Prakash Rathod, director at wholesaler MNC Bullion in the southern city of Chennai.

Everyone who earns or gets an income in India is subject to income tax. (Yes, Indians living abroad too). Your income could be salary, pension or could be from a savings account that’s quietly accumulating a 4% interest.

Set-off & Carry Forward Of Business Losses:     

Set-Off means adjustment of certain losses against the income under other sources in the same assessment year. Carrying Forward of unadjusted losses to be set-off in subsequent years is called Carry Forward.

How to adjust Business Losses?

If there is a loss in the business, the same can be adjusted against profits made in any other business of the same tax payer. The Loss, if any, still remaining, can be adjusted against Income from any other source.

From A/Y 2005-2006 loss from Business cannot be set off against Salary Income.

However, Loss sustained in speculative business can be adjusted only against profits earned in another speculative business.

Business Loss can be carried forward for a maximum period of next 8 (Eight) Assessment Years and adjusted against Business Profit of the subsequent years.

Unabsorbed Depreciation can be Set-Off even if Business/Profession is discontinued and can be carried forward for unlimited number of years.

However, for claiming the benefit of carry forward of losses, the tax payer has to invariably file his returns within due date.

Important Points / Characteristics For Computing Salary Income

Ramasamy Ulaganathan

For any payment to be made taxable under the head ‘Salaries’ it must fulfill the following characteristics.

For any payment to be made taxable under the head ‘Salaries’ it must fulfill the following characteristics. In case any receipt is not covered under any of these features it will not come under this head

1. Relationship of Employer and Employee:

For a payment to fall under the head ‘Salaries’ the relationship of employer and emplqyee must exist between payee and the receiver of the salary. The employer may be a Government,\. a Local authority, a company or any other public body or an Association or H.U.F. or even an individual. Every kind of payment to every kind of servant, public or private, however high or low placed he may be, is covered under the provisions of this Act. Even the remuneration payable to an employee of a foreign Govt. falls within this section. Even servant is an employee, but an agent may or may not be employee. A detailing agent of a selling concern is its employee whereas the person holding an agency to sell the goods of such a concern will not be employee. The relationship of master and servant is the only test to establish the relationship of employer and employee. A director of a company, though holding an office, is not an. employee unless it is so provided in the independent contract, or the Articles of Association of the company provide for such a relationship.
[Ram Prashad v. C.I. T. (86 1. T.R. 122, 127 (S. C.)]

2. Salary from more than one Employer:

Any amount of salary received or due from one or more than one employer/source shall be taxable under this head. Such situation may arise when an employee is working with two employers simultaneously or has worked with one employer and later on serves with another employer after leaving service with, first employer, salary from both the employers shall be taxable under this head.

3. Salary from Present, Past or Prospective Employer:

Salary received or due from present, past or future employer is also taxable under this head.

4. Tax Free Salary:

Sometimes, the employer allows an employee to draw tax-free salary, e.g., the employer pays full salary to the employee and also pays tax on this directly to the department. The employee’s assessment is to be made not on the amount of salary he is drawing but on gross amount i.e., salary drawn plus the tax paid by the employer.

5. Salary Received as Member of Parliament:

Salary received by a member of Parliament is not taxable under the head ‘Salaries’. It is taxable as income from other sources’. Any allowance received by them is fully exempted from tax.

6. Receipts from Persons other than Employer:

Perquisites or benefits or any other remuneration received from persons other than the employer, would be taxable not under the head ‘Salaries’ but under the head ‘income from other sources’ even if they accrue to the employee by reason of his employment or while he was discharging his normal duties, e.g., amount received by a professor of a college for acting as an examiner in a university.

For example, Dr. Dhir is an employee of a leading physician of Delhi. In one case, the patient’s life was saved because of the hard work and intelligence of Dr. Dhir. The patient, therefore, gives 5,000 to Dr. Dhir in appreciation of his services. The amount in this case is not chargeable as ‘salary’ but constitutes income from other sources.

7. Place of Accrual of Salary Income:

Salary accrues at that place where the services are rendered. If the services are rendered in India, the salary accrues in India and if the services are rendered outside India, the salary accrues outside India. Thus, if a person employed in India goes on leave to England and gets his leave salary there, the salary is said to accrue in India and not in England, because it is paid for services rendered in India. Pension paid in a foreign country for services rendered in India, will be Indian income, as it is paid for the services rendered in India although in the past. On the other hand, if any person is employed in India and transferred to its branch in England, the salary received by him in England is not Indian income, but it is income arising in England as the service is rendered in England. Followings are the two exceptions to this rule

  1. A pension payable outside India to a person who has gone to foreign country for permanent settlement is not deemed to arise in India, if pension is payable to a person appointed by the Secretary of State or to a person who was appointed before 15th August 1947, as a judge of the Federal Court or of a High Court and who continued to serve on or after the commencement of the Constitution as a judge in India. This is a special concession granted to certain officials of Government, who were employees before independence but continued to serve after this.
  2. The Govt. of India employs Indian citizens for services to be rendered in foreign countries and salary paid outside India is deemed to accrue or arise in India. This provision helps in taxing the salaries received by Government servants posted abroad. But under Section 10(7) the allowances and perquisites paid or allowed by the Government outside India are to be excluded from total income.

8. Deductions made by the Employer:

If, an employer makes certain deductions out of the salary payable to an employee, amount so deducted is deemed to be received by the employee and the amount so deducted is also taken as application of income by the employee. Some important types of deductions made by the employer are as follows :

            1.         Deductions made to recover the loan advanced by the employer.

            2.         Employee’s contribution towards the provident fund, income-tax and profession tax.

            3.         Deduction made to pay the premium on life insurance policy of the employee.

            4.         Any other deduction for which the employee has authorised the employer.

In case an employee receives his salary after certain deductions made by employer on account of profession tax, contribution to provident fund, tax deducted at source, the ‘salary’ will not be the net amount received, rather it will be the gross salary due to the employee.

9. Salary or Pension received by UNO Employees:

It is fully exempted as per circular No. 293 Dt. 10-2-81.

10. Salary received by a teacherlresearcher from a SAARC member State:

Exempted upto 2 years.

11. Salary as Partner:

Any salary, commission or remuneration received by a working partner from a firm assessed as firm shall not be taxable under the head ‘Salaries’. It is taxable under the head Profits & Gains.

12. Payments received by Legal Heirs of a Deceased Employee:

Any ex-gratia payment or compensation given to widow or legal heirs of an employee who dies during service is not taxable as salary income but family pension received is taxable under ‘other sources’.

13. Payment made after Cessation of Employment;

Payment made by an employer to his employee after the cessation of his employment is also taxable under the head ‘Salaries’. It is taxable under this head because it represents remuneration for services rendered in the past.

14. Voluntary foregoing : Application of Salary:

Voluntary foregoing of salary by an employee is simply an application of income by him and, therefore, any voluntary foregoing of salary is taxable when it is due, whether paid or not (Section 15). The salary which is voluntarily foregone must be actually due in the name of the employee. Voluntary foregoing is different from voluntary surrender of salaries which is exempted from tax.

15. Previous year for Salaries:

The previous year for the income under the head ‘Salaries’ shall always be financial year of the Government of India (i.e., April to March).

16. Taxability of salary on due or receipt, whichever is earlier basis:

U/s 15(a) salary is taxable on due basis whether received or not. Salary becomes due after doing work and in India it is due on monthly basis. Every employee gets salary on completion of a month. As per our financial system the year starts on 1St April and ends on 31st March. As such first salary for the month of April becomes due on 1st day of next month. But in some cases salary becomes due

On the last day of the month and salary for the month of April shall be due on 30th April. This results into following two situations :

  1. If salary is due on 1 st. day of the month, during the financial year 2013-14 first salary shall be due on 1st April 2013 and it shall be for the month of March 2013 and last salary shall be due on 1st March 2014 for the month of February 2014.
  2. If salary is due on the last day of the month, during the financial year 2013-14 first salary shall be due on 30th April 2013 and it shall be for the month of April 2013 and last salary shall be due on 31st March 2014 for the month of March 2014.

17. Salary Grade / Pay Scale:

In some organisations like Government offices, Banks, Post Offices, Railways, Universities, Colleges etc. salary to employees is paid as per pay scales or salary grades. The pay sc,les fixes the starting salary of an employee and also the annual increment in future years of employment.

The annual increment is granted to employee after completion of one full year of service e.g. if an employee joins his service/job on 1st September 2010, he will be granted 1st annual increment w.e.f. 1st September 2011.

Example of Grade/Pay Scale:

Rs 8,000-Rs 300- Rs 11,000
Rs 12,000- Rs 500- Rs 20,000

The amount mentioned in between two big amounts is known as annual increment i.e. the salary of employee will increase by this amount on the completion of every 12 month of his job.

Example. Mr. A joined his job on 1st September 2009 in the grade of Rs 12,000- Rs 500- Rs 20,000. Find out his salary for the previous year 2013-14.

18. Advance salary received:

In case an assessee receives some salary in advance in a previous year which was actually not due in that year, it shall be taxable in the year of receipt. In case, any loan or advance is taken it is not treated as advance salary.

19. Arrears of salary received:

Any amount of salary received from present or past employer during relevant previous year and which relates to some earlier previous years, is treated as arrears of salary. It is taxable in the year in which received and not the year to which it belongs. [C.I.T. v. Gajapathy Naidu (1964) 58 I.T.R., 114 (S.C.)]. In case assessee has to pay tax at a rate higher than that at which he would have paid, had these arrears been received in the year to which they belong, assessee can apply to Income-tax Officer for relief u/s 89(1)

20. Salary in Lieu of notice:

To terminate the services of an employee it is essential to serve a notice as per service agreement. In case it is desired to relieve the employee immediately, he is given salary in lieu of such notice period. Such amount is fully taxable under the head ‘salaries’ on receipt basis.
