This data has been extracted from A Statistical Report on Completion of 3 years of GST released by Goods and Services Tax Network on 3rd Anniversary of GST. Source of the entire data produced here is from this document released by GSTN.
1. Active Taxpayers as on 30th June, 2020: Summary
|Type of Taxpayer||No. of Taxpayers|
|Input Service Distributor||7,387|
|Tax Collector at source||9,250|
|Tax Deductor at source||1,85,657|
|Non Resident Taxpayers||3|
UIN holders 2264
2. Classification of taxpayers according to states, then following are first 6 states as per number of registration sequentially arranged
|Sequentially Numbered||Name of the State||No. Tax Payers Registered|
Out of Total 1,23,11,104 registered taxpayers, 59,45,626 tax payers have turnover less than 1.5 Crore. This is 48.29% of the taxpayers having annual turnover of less than 1.5 crore. This figure in itself explains the type of taxpayers working in our economy. All the policies relating to compliances and administration should be made considering the preparedness of these taxpayers.
3. Contribution to GST Revenue from Different Constitutions of Business
|CONSTITUTION OF BUSINESS||No. of Taxpayers||% of Total Tax Payers||COLLECTION (In Rs.Crores)||% OF Total Collection|
|Public Limited Company||71,151||0.62%||8,35,298.12||35.29%|
|Private Limited Company||6,75,875||5.87%||6,51,141.36||27.51%|
|CONSTITUTION OF BUSINESS||No. of Taxpayers||% of Total Tax Payers||COLLECTION
|% OF Total Collection|
It is evident from the above stated data that 70.15% of the revenue is collected from merely 17.27% of the taxpayers. And whopping 80.18% of taxpayers contribute meager amount 13.35% of tax. It is always easy to have tax administration on the organized taxpayers who are working under Corporate or partnership constitution. So, it is to control them and regulate them. It gives the direction for the future also to the administrators that not to incur much cost to administer individuals as they do not contribute much. They should have relaxed policies for individuals like frequency of filing returns and tax payments also. This would save the precious national resources to have optimum utilization. This would in real terms call the usage of data collection and data mining.
If we further narrow down our lenses to see only 6.49% of taxpayers contribute 62.80% of revenue. It is the high time for department to concentrate more on these small lots instead of hitting around bushes and troubling the nation as a whole.
Attempt is made by us to present the already published data to bring out some inferences or directions for future. This extraction is not at all for any other purposes.
