  1. Please clarify the following points:
    1. How the Input Credit will be available on Carry Forward Stock (Closing stock as on 31.03.16)
    on which ED & Vat has been paid.
    2. If a party opts for Composition Tax (turnover within 50 lac), than how the Input Credit will be
    matched as he will file return in GSTR4
    3. How Input credit will be matched if the party is not registered ( below 20 lacs)

    • 1. There has been mention of a mechanism to claim input tax credit on Carry Froward Stock but the details not super clear yet – looking for that from GST council/GSTN.
      2. Composition dealers cannot claim input tax credit. They also don’t pay tax, so when one buys from a composition supplier, there is not ITC to claim. It is the buyer’s responsibility to track who theri composition suppliers are.
      3. If one buys from an unregistered party, one doesn’t (or at lease shouldn’t) pay GST on those transactions, hence no ITC is there to be claimed.

      For points 2 and 3, the essential detail is here: a buyer cannot claim as input tax credit any invoice not transmitted to the GSTN by the supplier.

      This will factor into point one as well – the GSTN will have to provide some mechanism for buyers to let the GSTN know what inventory remains in hand against which they wish to claim ITC – that means those purchase invoices or the sales invoices from those suppliers will in some way have to be sent to GSTN. How that happens is not yet clear. If any one has the detail, please reply here.

    • Dear Sir,

      I was going through your Article on GST & I have a question in my mind & would like
      to get the clarification on this issue.

      In West Bengal at present the medicines are sold under MRP Tax, which means the
      VAT is collected on MRP on first sale & hence VAT registration is not required .
      No Input Credit is taken at present & No Output tax is collected.

      If I am having a closing stock worth 1 crore on 31.03.17 on which Tax I have already paid tax On MRP, will I get any Input Credit for the closing stock on 01.04.2017.

      Whether I can sell the this stock after 01.04.17 without charging any tax as tax has already been paid on this stock.

      Yours faithfully

      R.G.TOSHNIWAL
