ACCOUNTING ENTRIES UNDER GST
Example 1: Intra-state
ο X purchased goods Rs. 1,00,000 locally (intrastate)
ο He sold them for Rs. 1,50,000 in the same state
ο He paid legal consultation fees Rs. 5,000
ο He purchased furniture for his office for Rs. 12,000
ο Assuming CGST @8% and SGST@8%
Ο Total Input CGST=8,000+400+960= Rs. 9,360
Total Input SGST=8,000+400+960= Rs. 9,360
Total output CGST=12,000
Total output SGST=12,000
Therefore Net CGST payable=12,000-9,360=2,640
Net SGST payable=12,000-9,360=2,640
Ο Thus due to input tax credit, tax liability of Rs. 24,000 is reduced to only Rs.5,280. Also, GST on legal fees is also adjusted which was not possible in current tax regime.
Ο If there had been any input tax credit left it would have been carried forward to the next year.
SETOFF OF TAXES PAID
Ο Order of setoff is as follow
⇒ IGST = IGST → CGST → SGST
⇒ CGST = CGST → IGST
⇒ SGST = SGST → IGST
Cross utilisation of SGST against CGST and vice versa is not allowed
Ο If cash payment for IGST, CGST, SGST made, than inter head of cash payment is not allowed, even intra head is also not allowed.
Ο If we wrongly made cash payment against IGST, instead of CGST,SGST, then we need to paid again against our liability and claim refund for wrong payment.
