REVERSE CHARGE MECHANISM (RCM)

Reverse Charge Mechanism in GST should be removed. It is the biggest confusing and problematic issue in GST. Small Business owners are suffering huge loss due to this provision. Compliance part has also increased due to this.

FREQUENCY OF RETURNS

For small businesses quarterly return system should be allowed. It is not possible for the small businesses to update their accounts on monthly basis as they do not have the necessary manpower, infrastructure and professional help. 

BJPNO RELAXATIONS IN COMPLIANCE FOR SMALL SUPPLIERS

Small traders/service providers are finding it extremely difficult in complying with the tedious returns. There should be SARAL forms for small businessmen.

QUANTITY TO BE FED IN RETURNS

It is next to impossible to feed item wise / invoice wise quantity details while filing returns. In many businesses there are thousands of items making things very difficult for small businesses to comply. 

REVISION OF FORMS NOT PERMITTED

To Err is human. And this being a new tax totally electronic. Mistakes are bound to happen.

PAYMENT MODES

Payment by cheques will be accepted for an amount below 10000 only. For bigger amount payment will have to be made through net banking or NEFT/RTGS.

We request for increasing the limit of Cheque payment to at least 50000/-.

INFRASTRUCTURE

Infrastructure required for the smooth compliance of GST is not ready. Software is highly inefficient in handling such a massive exercise. Time and again  Government is  deferring the filing dates as the infrastructure is not capable enough of handling such bulk transactions. Lacs of assesses and  Professionals are wasting their time and energy in filing the returns.

In rural areas their are additional problems of Internet and Electricity.

CLASSIFICATION:

Government has totally messed up with product / services classification. It is very difficult to search the applicable rate for a particular product. Classification has been done in highly detailed way. Actually it should have been done in a broad category wise. Like Textile, Iron and Steel, Medicines , Electrical fittings etc.

CANCELLATION OF UNWANTED REGISTRATIONS

Many assessees who are not falling within the ambit of GST due to their turnover below threshold for registration have been migrated due to legal mandate. In these cases, since they are not required to be under GST regime and wish to opt out, clarification on when the surrender form will be released for e-filing and clarity on whether they are required to file GSTR -3B ‘Nil’ Return.

AMENDMENT IN REGISTRATION

Most of the assesses who wish to effect amendments to their registration are unable to do so due to technical glitch in GSTN. Amendment window is still not fully operational.

AGGREGATE TURNOVER CRITERIA FOR REGISTRATION AND COMPOSITION SCHEME

As per provisions a person will have to take registration if his aggregate turnover crosses 20 lacs. Aggregate turnover includes turnover of exempted supplies also. Due to this even a doctor, educational institution having minor taxable turnover will have to take registration. Even Interest income is to be considered in Aggregate turnover. Even a doctor selling his old car will have to take registration .

Example : Interest Income – 1500000/- Rent income 600000/- . will have to take registration. 

Clarification through FAQs, Handbooks and GOI Twitter handle.

Most of the stakeholders are dependent on Sectoral FAQs, Handbooks and GOI Twitter for query resolution. We are amused to observe contradictory clarifications coming out GOI Twitter handle on the same issue. We request your good selves to issue a clarification on the authenticity of such contents. 

E-Way Bill :

Very soon E-way will also be introduced. It is better to discuss the modalities of E-way bill with all stakeholders before introducing it. Because as per rules it is going to be very difficult and complicated compliance.
