A ton of speculations and rumors are doing nothing but firing up the confusion and the only solution to clear these things out is by spreading awareness.
Here are the 7 points of GST knoweledge:-
- Myth – You need to generate all invoices on computer/internet only. Reality – Invoices can be generation also.
- Myth – You need internet 24*7 to do business under GST. Reality – Internet is needed only while filling monthly return of GST.
- Myth – Only have provisional ID but waiting for final ID to do business. Reality – Provisional ID will work as final GSTIN number.
- Myth – If item was earlier exempt you’ll require new registration. Reality – Continue doing business and get registered within 30 days.
- Myth – There are 3 returns to be filled per month. Reality – Only 1 return with 3 parts i.e. first files by dealer, second and third will be auto-generated by computer.
- Myth – Even small dealers will have to file invoice wisely with deatils in return. Reality – Those in retail business (B2C) need to file only summary of total sales.
- Myth – New GST rate is higher compared to earlier VAT. Reality – All invisible taxes like Excise Duty have been subsumed in GST, so it appears that way.
