Our Sales can be classified as :

4. Local authority [as defined in explanation to section 10(20)]

Notes :

1. Definition of Turnover :

No clarification has been provided by CBDT in this regard.

GST component is included while calculating the limit of section 44AB i.e. Tax Audit. Same interpretation is to be followed while calculating the threshold limit under this section i.e. GST component will included in sales. For eg, if Mr. A has turnover of Rs. 9cr (exclusive of GST) in FY 2021-22 and collected GST of Rs. 1.08cr, in that case total turnover for the purpose of this section is Rs. 10.08cr. Same conclusion applicable for calculating Rs. 50 lakhs threshold.

2. Whether TCS will be collected on GST portion?

Indirect taxes like GST forms integral part of the consideration and therefore TCS is collectible on sales price inclusive of GST and other indirect taxes.

A clarification in this regard is expected from CBDT. Till then the conservative view is to collect TCS on GST component as well.

3. TCS provisions not applicable where resident buyer furnishes a declaration to the person responsible for collecting tax, to effect that, the goods referred to above are utilized for the purposes of manufacturing, processing or producing articles or things or for the purposes of generation of power and not for trading purposes

4. The person responsible forcollecting tax shall deliver one copy of such declaration to the Chief Commissioner of Income Tax (CIT) / CIT on or before the 7th day of the month next after the month in which the declaration is furnished to him.

5. TCS should not be included in Value of Transaction for calculation of GST as CBIC has clarified through Corrigendum to Circular No. 76/50/2018-GST dated 7th March 2019 that Amount of TCS under Income Tax will not be part of Value under GST. Copy of the Circular is Appended herewith.

Corrigendum to Circular No. 76/50/2018-GST

New Delhi, Dated the 7th March, 2019

To,

 Madam/Sir,

Subject: Corrigendum to Circular No. 76/50/2018-GST dated 31st December, 2018 issued vide F.No. CBEC- 20/16/04/2018-GST- Reg.

Vide serial number 5 of Circular No. 76/50/2018-GST dated 31st December, 2018, it was clarified that the taxable value for the purposes of GST shall include the Tax Collected at Source (TCS) amount collected under the provisions of the Income Tax Act, as the value to be paid to the supplier by the recipient is inclusive of the said TCS.

2. In the light of the representations received from the stakeholders, the matter has been re-examined in consultation with the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT). The CBDT has clarified that Tax collection at source (TCS) is not a tax on goods but an interim levy on the possible “income” arising from the sale of goods by the buyer and to be adjusted against the final income- tax liability of the buyer.

3. Accordingly, in No. 5 of the Circular No. 76/50/2018-GST dated 31st December, 2018:

5. What is the correct valuation methodology for ascertainment of GST on Tax collected at source (TCS) under the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961? 1. Section 15(2) of CGST Act specifies that the value of supply shall include “any taxes, duties cesses, fees and charges levied under any law for the time being in force other than this Act, the SGST Act, the UTGST Act and the GST (Compensation to States) Act, if charged separately by the supplier.”

 

 2. It is clarified that as per the above provisions, taxable value for the purposes of GST shall include the TCS amount collected under the provisions of the Income Tax Act since the value to be paid to the supplier by the buyer is inclusive of the said TCS.

2.  For the purpose of determination of value of supply under GST, Tax collected at source (TCS) under the provisions of the Income Tax Act, 1961 would not be includible as it is an interim levy not having the character of tax.

 2. It is requested that suitable trade notices may be issued to publicize the contents of this Circular.

3. Difficulty, if any, in implementation of this Circular may please be brought to the notice of the Board. Hindi version would follow.

    Good article, giving a meticulous in depth analysis of a new provision. Perhaps one improvement can be made. Please refer to your para 3. “TCS provisions not applicable where resident buyer furnishes a declaration …”. If we make a closer scrutiny of section 206(1A), we may realise that it refers only to subsection (1) and not (1H). You may like to give a corrigendum.

  2. Jagdish Prasad Agarwal says:
