23rd GST Council Meeting

Lates changes in GST 23rd council meeting

In the 23rd GST Council Meeting, GST rate reduction for various goods and services was announced. A major highlight of the 23rd GST Council Meeting was the reduction of GST rates for various goods listed under the 28% slab. The GST rates changes will tremendously reduce the tax burden on the common man and boost the economy. In this article, we look at a summary of GST rate changes announced in the 23rd GST Council Meeting held on 10th November 2017.

Highlights of the 23rd GST Council Meeting

The goods and services on the 28% slab list were severely reduced to a mere 50 from the previous 228 items, which brought smiles to many faces.  The items remaining on the trimmed list now only include luxury and “sin” goods.

Additionally, restaurants will only be taxed at 5%, however, input tax credit will not be available.  This reduction will benefit consumers directly with an increase in online food ordering and eating out.

Moreover, the penalty fee for late filing was drastically reduced from Rs200/day to Rs20/day.

Nepal and Bhutan exporters can now avail of input tax credit on output services, also.

The central government will take care of the compliance for diplomatic mission/UN organization, who will each be issued UIN.

A manual filing process for advance ruling, on future or completed transactions, has been introduced.

Registration exemption of service providers whose aggregate turnover is less than Rs. 20 lakhs (Rs. 10 lakhs for special states) now includes e-commerce operators, interstate and intra-state suppliers.

The Recommendations from the 23rd GST Council Meeting

Filing of returns to be simplified

  • Taxpayers should file the returns on Form GSTR-3B with the payment of tax by 20th of every month till March 2018.
  • Filing of form GSTR-2 and GSTR-3 suspended from the current financial year. However, filing of GSTR-1 will continue for the entire period.
  • Taxpayers will be divided into two categories for filling of details in the Form GSTR-1. They are:
    1. Taxpayers with annual turnover upto or below Rs.1.5 crore need to file GSTR-1 on a quarterly basis.
    2. Taxpayers with annual turnover more than Rs.1.5 crore need to file GSTR-1 on a monthly basis.
  • Facility for the manual filing of the application for the advance ruling introduced for the time being.

Penalties reduced

  • A large number of taxpayers were unable to file their returns in Form GSTR-3B within due date of July, August, and September 2017.Late fee waived in all such cases.It has been decided that where such late fee was paid, it will be re-credited to their Electronic Cash Ledger under “Tax” head instead of “Fee” head so as to enable them to use that amount for the discharge of their future tax liabilities. The software changes for this would be made and thereafter this decision will be implemented.
  • For the succeeding months i.e. October 2017 onwards, the amount of late payable by a taxpayer whose tax liability for that month was “NIL” will be Rs.20 per day (Rs. 10 per day each if it is under CGST AND SGST Acts). Earlier it was Rs.200 per day(Rs. 100 per day each if it is under CGST AND SGST Acts).

GST Clarification

Some Important Clarifications Regarding Transportation Charges In The GST Regime

Some Important Clarifications Regarding Transportation Charges In The GST Regime

1-    It is always better in the GST regime to declare the freight charges separately in the invoice as now services received from Goods Transport Agency ( GTA ) are attributable to liability of reverse charge at the rate of 5% . On these services the GTA has no liability of payment of taxes but the recipient of such services has to pay the tax at the rate of 5% on the freight charges claimed by the GTA and the recipient of such services can claim ITC of such tax paid if such person subsequently executes taxable supplies .

2-    It is quite clear that ITC can only be claimed in respect of taxable supplies or zero rated supplies . Zero rated supplies means supplies in the course of export or supplies executed to SEZ units or SEZ developers . No ITC is admissible in respect of exempted or nil rated supplies .

3-    It has already been clarified that the recipient of transportation services from GTA will have to issue a payment voucher at the time of payment of freight charges to the GTA and will have to deposit the tax on such charges when such services are received . The format of payment voucher has been envisaged in Rule 52 of the CGST Rules , 2017 ( Exactly the same rule is envisaged in SGST Rules , 2017 ) .

4-    It is pertinent to note that in the payment voucher described above the recipient has to declare the payable tax and not the paid tax which in itself clarifies that at the time of issue of payment voucher to be issued to GTA , the payment of requisite tax in respect of freight charges claimed by the GTA is not the pre-condition of such issuance of payment voucher . The requisite tax in this respect as declared in the payment voucher is to be paid when the services are received .

5-    The services from the GTA can be taken by the supplier as well as the recipient .

  • In case of the supplier taking the services from GTA for transportation of goods,  the G.R. shall be issued in the name of such supplier as consignor and the recipient shall be consignee and freight charges shall be paid by such supplier to the GTA incurring the liability of reverse charge on such freight charges at the rate of 5% .
      1. Such supplier shall mention the aforesaid freight charges  after the value of taxable goods supplied in the invoice issued and charge the requisite tax on amount which shall include the amount of the value of goods and the amount of the freight charges .


      1. Since this supply is the composite supply which includes the supply of taxable goods as well as transportation services ( indicated as freight charges in the invoice issued )  of which the supply of the goods is the principal supply thus the tax shall be charged at the rate which is applicable on the supply of such taxable goods .


      1. The supplier shall be entitled to the input tax credit both in respect of the tax paid regarding inputs pertaining to the goods supplied and the tax paid in respect of freight charges as liability under reverse charge .


    1. There should not be any confusion regarding the claim of ITC in respect of the tax paid on the basis of reverse charge in respect of services taken from the GTA by the aforesaid supplier because such services have been subsequently supplied to the recipient by such supplier by disclosing the freight charges in the invoice issued by him and subjecting this amount to the requisite tax payable on principal supply of goods in such invoice . Thus these input services have been subsequently supplied in the form of composite supply by such supplier and tax invoice has been issued accordingly .
  • In case the services of transportation is taken by the recipient from the GTA  then the G.R. shall be issued of ” Self ” in respect of the recipient and such recipient shall be liable to pay the tax in respect of such transportation charges or freight charges on the reverse charge basis . In such cases the ITC of tax paid on reverse charge basis shall be claimed by the recipient instead of the supplier of such goods .
  • In the GST regime the GTA need not to get itself registered as the services supplied by it have been put in the ambit of section 9(3) i.e. the liability on such services has been envisaged on the reverse charge basis .
  • The Government by issuing Notification No. 5/2017 Dated 19th June , 2017 has clarified that such  persons shall fall in the category of persons exempted from obtaining registration under the Act ( i.e. CGST/SGST Act, 2017 ) who are only engaged in making supplies of taxable goods or services or both , the total tax on which is liable to be paid on reverse charge basis by the recipient of such goods or services or both under sub-section (3) of section 9 of the  aforesaid Act .

Reverse charge mechanism under GST and implications of exemption upto Rs. 5000 per day

Let’s look at the critical provisions of the GST law which have enabled reverse charge mechanism :-

Compulsory Reverse Charge even if the supplier is registered –

Sec 9(3) The Government may, on the recommendations of the Council, by notification, specify categories of supply of goods or services or both, the tax on which shall be paid on reverse charge basis by the recipient of such goods or services or both and all the provisions of this Act shall apply to such recipient as if he is the person liable for paying the tax in relation to the supply of such goods or services or both.

The above section primarily covers services availed from Goods Transport Agency, Lawyer, government, corporate sponsorships, director etc.

Reverse Charge if the supplier is unregistered –

Sec 9(4) The central tax in respect of the supply of taxable goods or services or both by a supplier, who is not registered, to a registered person shall be paid by such person on reverse charge basis as the recipient and all the provisions of this Act shall apply to such recipient as if he is the person liable for paying the tax in relation to the supply of such goods or services or both.

Central Government had come up with an exemption to the small miscellaneous transactions from unregistered persons.

Notification No. 8/2017- Central Tax (Rate) dt 28.06.2017 issued by Central Government has exempted intra-State supplies of goods or services or both received by a registered person from any supplier, who is not registered, from the whole of the central tax leviable thereon under sub-section (4) of section 9 of the Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 (12 of 2017)

The said exemption shall not be applicable where the aggregate value of such supplies of goods or service or both received by a registered person from any or all the suppliers, who is or are not registered, exceeds five thousand rupees in a day.

To sum up, the supply should be intra state supply (within the state) and can be for goods as well as services or both. Moreover the supply should be received by the registered person from an unregistered dealer only and upto a daily limit of Rs. 5000/-


Mr. X  purchased following items from unregistered dealer, all are dated 01.07.2017 as under:

1st bill – From Ram: Stationery = 2000/-
2nd bill – From Shyam: Lunch = 1000/-
3rd bill – From Madhu : Books = 3000/-

In this case, The bills of Mr. X will not get covered under this notification as aggregate value of all supplies exceeds 5000/- on a single date (01.07.2017)

Exemption would have been available if,:

1) Bill dates are different (So that it will come under 5000/- day limit, say bill date of Ram is 02.07.2017)
2) Any of the bills are 1000/- less than the mentioned value(Say Bill of Madhu is Rs 2000/-
3) If the one of the bills in the same of other person (say, one of the bill is in the name of Mr. Y)


Whether these 5000 limit be availed for those cases where compulsory tax is payable in RCM basis as per section 9(3) of CGST act?

Where Compulsory tax is to be paid under the Reverse Charge Mechanism under 9(3) of CGST Act, and as per Notification N0o. 13/2017- Central Tax (Rate) dt 28.06.2017 the benefit of this limit cannot be availed. Reason being these notification cover only cases of 9(4) and not 9(3).

Mr. X purchased following items from unregistered dealer, all are dated 01.07.2017 as under:

1st bill – From Ram: Stationery = 2000/-
2nd bill – From Shyam: Lunch = 1000/-
3rd bill – From Madhu: Goods Transport Agency = 3000/-

In this case, The bills from Mr Ram and Mr Shyam will get covered under this notification as aggregate value of all supplies does not exceed 5000/- on a single date (01.07.2017). For the Third bill from Madhu Reverse charge is payable u/s 9(3) without any exemption threshold.

Whether this daily limit benefits would be available if the goods/services received from persons covered under 9(4) are blocked credits?

The benefit of daily limit would be available. Output Tax under reverse charge would be payable if it crosses the daily limit even though they are covered under blocked credits.

What if the limit crosses 5000 in a day, is GST payable over and above the value or from rupee 1?

If the value of taxable supplies exceeds Rs5000 per day for all suppliers, then GST would be payable on the Total value of the supplies received from unregistered persons.

Is this limit applicable to all supplies?

The limit is applicable to only taxable supply of goods or services or both. Exempt supplies are out of the preview of this notification.

Mr. X purchased following items from unregistered dealer, all are dated 01.07.2017 as under:

1st bill – From Ram: Stationery = 2000/-
2nd bill – From Shyam: Hotel Room = 1000/-

In this case, the bills of Mr. X will not get covered under this notification as aggregate value of all supplies does not exceed 5000/- on a single date (01.07.2017) as the supplies from Shyam for Hotel room booking are exempt under Entry 14 of the exemption notification (12/2017).
What if the supplies are procured from Interstate supply from unregistered?
