GST For MSME & Businesses

MSME remains for smaller scale, little and medium endeavors and any venture that falls under any of these three classes. MSME endeavors are the foundation of any economy and are a motor of monetary development, advancing impartial improvement for all. Along these lines, to help and advance MSMEs, the Government of India through different endowments, plans and motivators advance MSMEs through the MSME Act. To profit the advantages under the MSME Act from Central or State Government and the Banking Sector, MSME Registration is required.

  • Starting business becomes easier:
  • Currently, the Sales Tax department has various turnover slabs which require VAT registration. A business with the multi-state operation, in this case, has to follow varied tax rules applicable to different states. This not only creates excess complication but also adds to procedural fees, due to which the price-sensitive MSMEs will be burdened. Uniform GST will standardize the process.

  • Improved MSME market expansion:
  • In the current system, big corporations procured goods based on MSME's locality in order to reduce overheads. Thus MSMEs limit their customers within the state as they wi" bear the ultimate burden of tax on interstate sales, reducing their customer base. With the implementation of GST, this will be nullified as tax credit will transfer irrespective of the location of buyer and seller. This allows MSME segment to expand their reach across borders.

  • Lower logistical overheads:
  • As GST is tax neutral it will eliminate time-consuming border tax procedures and toll LOAN posts and encourages the supply of goods across borders. Accordingly, the logistical cost for companies manufacturing bulk good will be reduced. Such costs can be crucial for the survival of MSMEs.

  • Aids MSMEs dealing in sales and services:
  • GST will not distinguish between •sales and services. This is good news for the MSMEs that deal with sales and services model of business, for them, the taxation is simplified and will be calculated on the total.

  • Purchase of Capital Goods:
  • In the current system, only 50% of the input tax credit against the purchase of Capital Goods is available in the year of purchase and the balance amount in subsequent years. Under GST regime, the entire amount of input tax credit can be availed in the year of purchase itself. This will support "Make in India" campaign. <
