Notification No. 22/ST-1/H.A.6/2003/S.59/2015 dated 7th September, 2015 will have a significant impact on the Haryana VAT Payers and Buyers of Haryana Goods outside the state of Haryana. The issue is in relation to restricting the input tax credit only to the extent of Output tax liability for dealer engaged in Interstate Sale of Goods.
This simply means say a dealer who has bought an Item at Full rate local VAT and sells it to Interstate on Form C @ 2% would have to loose out on the differential input tax credit (on the cost of Material Purchased) and the same cannot be used as credit against other VAT Payable or be claimed as refund under the Act.
Similar restriction is also imposed on the goods used in the manufacture of such goods in the State are sold in such course of inter-state trade or commerce. Further, the restriction is also imposed on when goods are sold at a sale price lower than the purchase price.
This above effect is introduced by Amending the Schedule E of the Act w.e.f 7th September, 2015 and Sl. No. 3(b) of the Said Schedule. The Amended Sl. No. 3(b) of the Schedule E is as under
