GST Models and its Benefits

GST Models and its Benefits

Goods and Services Tax” would be a comprehensive indirect tax on manufacture, sale and consumption of goods and services throughout India, to replace taxes levied by the Central and State governments.

GST is a tax that we need to pay on supply of goods & services. Any person, who is providing or supplying goods and services is liable to charge GST.

GST is a consumption based tax/levy. It is based on the “Destination principle.” GST is applied on goods and services at the place where final/actual consumption happens.

Models of GST

There are three prime models of GST:

Expected model of GST in India:

In India, the GST model will be “dual GST” having both Central and State GST component levied on the same base.

For example, if a product have levy at a base product of Rs. 1000 and the rate of CGST and SGST are 10% then in such case both CGST and SGST will be charged on Rs. 1000 i.e. CGST will be Rs. 100 and SGST will be Rs.100.

The significant features of Dual GST are as under:

  1. There will be Central GST to be administered by the Central Government and there will be State GST administered by the State Governments.
  2. Central GST will replace existing CENVAT and Service tax and the State GST will replace State VAT.
  3. The proposed GST will have two components – Central GST and State GST – the rates of which will be prescribed separately keeping in view the revenue considerations, total tax burden and the acceptability of the tax.
  4. Certain components of petroleum, liquor and tobacco are likely to be outside GST structure.

Further, State Excise on liquor may also be kept outside the GST.

As per the proposed GST regime, the input of Central GST can be utilized only for the payment of CGST and the input of State GST can be utilized only for payment of SGST.
