Understanding GST as it Crawls Through the 1st Year

The Goods and Services Tax, popularly known as GST, is just three weeks away from celebrating its 1st anniversary mark. It was a ceremonial affair where the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee, along with the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi announced the implementation of the most awaited reformed taxation, the GST. After years of trial and turmoil, the NDA-led government implemented it from 1st July 2018, at the midnight special hour. The launch was marked as a historic event with both the houses of parliament convened at the Central Hall of the Parliament.

It’s nearly one year since the introduction of the new indirect tax regime. It was after 70 years of our Independence that the tax system was revised. The modification in the GST or the consumption tax is levied on the sale of goods and services. The changes in the indirect tax system was deemed necessary to simplify the taxation by opting for ‘GST: One nation, One tax.’ GST is applicable at every step in the production process, but is refunded to all the middlemen executives in the stages of production, except the final consumer. The GST is levied at the place of procurement and not at the place of production.

This one step indirect tax replaced several other taxes like the central excise duty, services tax, additional customs duty, surcharges, state-level VAT etc. The GST regime has also demolished taxes that were applicable on inter-state transportation of goods. GST involves sale, transfer, purchase, barter, lease, or import of goods and services.

The Indian GST model follows a dual character. It is administered by both the Union and the state governments. Exchange of goods and services within a state is levied Central-GST (CGST) by Central Government and State-GST (SGST) by the State governments. In case of inter-state purchase, an Integrated GST (IGST) is levied by the Central government.

The GST incurs variable rates for different products. The different GST slabs are 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 22%. With some exceptions being made to dairy products, petroleum, gold etc.

Revision of Tax Slab Rates

The GST reforms have had a total of 27 meetings in just one year denoting the unstable marking of tax slabs. These slabs have had a severe impact on consumer-oriented markets. Fixing of prices and allotment of discounts all depends on the indirect tax regime. And frequently modifying it make the work even more complex to calculate and to fetch new labels. GST rates in India have been touted to be one of the highest in comparison to other developing countries. And the presence of 4-5 different slabs for different products only leads to confusion. Although reduction in the tax rates was a welcoming step, it needs a more rationalized approach for a sprouting business environment.

Getting Accustomed to it

For smoother business and market operations, traders had a really hard time getting used to the new taxation policy. Dealers had to obtain a GST registration in each state of operation. One of the key challenges of service providers was to bear with the GST portal. Due to the technical glitches and setbacks, the government has extended the dates of return-filing and also looks forward to a simplified version of registration.

Introducing E-way Bills

E-way bills were introduced for ease in the transportation services as tokens to be uploaded online without any hustle, but to everyone’s’ surprise the portal crashed on the very launch day due to site traffic. The Government has been quick in responding and thus came with the idea of opting for two different E-way bills, one for inter-state and the other for intra-state.

Blockage of Working Capital of Exporters

The GST council had a meeting on the refund issues on export items. The Central and state government authorities keenly observed the problems faced by the various exporters and has promised to adhere to them at the earliest. Export duties were given special category of the economic section and this has created a haywire of sorts for the zero percent slab rate. The export rate witnessed a setback but with timely intervention from the government, things will get smoother in the coming times.

Anti-Profiteering Rules

It was observed that GST led to a price hike, hence the need arose for anti-profiteering guidelines. These were issues to make sure the end users are benefited with the GST rates. It will help control inflation. Price swinging from the retailers stock can be overcome by the provisions in anti-profiteering rules to safeguard consumer interests.

Complex and Uncertain provisions

Although GST was implemented to have a smoother and simplified tax regime. But as is the case with any new law, it comes with its own set of uncertainty and complexities and GST was no exception to the law. This one year journey of GST was met by many hurdles and uncommon problems and mixed reactions from people all around India. GST had to overcome issues like refund problems, changing rates, curbing inflation, monitoring double taxation, omitting credit blockages etc.

GST has fought many economic hurdles at the very nascent age and looks prepared to enter its 2nd year of glory. GST has empowered make in India and the problem of dual taxation. The improvisations made help us understand the economic fragmentation the better way and has assisted in curbing tax defaulters.

Most Common Concerns of NRIs Regarding Income Tax

Income tax is definitely a prime concern of the taxpayers and more than that the involvement of government in the same makes it important. In the recent past, a slew of measures have been announced to check misreporting of income by individuals. In light of the new developments, it has become a must for all of us to clearly understand our tax liabilities and abide by them accordingly. We may have to face the wrath of the income-tax (I-T) department in case we fail to do so. In case you are a non-resident Indian then definitely the things becomes much more complicated. Keeping that in mind, here are the some very common income tax related questions of NRI’s along with the best possible answers.

Does my residential status changes only once in my lifetime?

The answer is no. Under the provisions of the I-T law, the residential status of a taxpayer is determined every year. Initially, a person could be a resident; his status may change to being non-resident. In case this NRI decides to come back to India, his status would change to the resident but not ordinarily resident. This is an ever-changing process.

Do I have to pay taxes in India if I am an NRI?

You do not have to pay taxes in India in case you are not earning anything here. In case you are making a certain profit in India (even if it is through money lying in  your savings account which is known as passive income), that particular part of your income will be taxed in India while the remaining part of your income would be taxed in the country of your residence.

What are the deductions not allowed to NRI?

Unlike resident Indians, NRIs do not enjoy deductions on some investments under Section 80C of the I-T Act. These include:

  • Investment in the Public Provident Fund (You can, however, maintain your PPF accounts if you opened them while they were a resident.)
  • Investment in the National Savings Certificate
  • Investments in five-year Post-Office Deposit Scheme
  • Investment in senior-citizen savings scheme
  • Investment in the Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme
  • Deductions are given to differently-abled people under Section 80DD, Section 80DDB and Section 80U

Is it a must for NRIs to pay advance tax?

As an NRI, if your tax liability exceeds Rs 10,000 in a financial year, you are required to pay advance tax. In case you fail to do so, you will have to pay an interest on the outstanding liability under Section 234B and Section 234C of the I-T Act. Advance tax is a part payment of your tax liabilities, and the individual pays as he earns under the scheme. The tax is applicable if you are making money from sources other than your monthly salary. Gains made through the sale of property, interest earned on investments, profits gained through business, et cetera, attract advance tax payments.

What are the deductions allowed to NRI?

On a par with residents, NRIs are allowed deductions for houses purchased in India.

  • Under Section 80D, NRIs can also claim deduction of up to Rs 40,000 in a financial year for health insurance premiums.
  • Under Section 80E, NRIs can also claim deduction on interest paid against education loans.
  • Under Section 80G, NRIs also claim deduction on charity and donations.
  • Under Section 80TT-A, NRIs also claim deduction on interest earned on money lying in savings bank accounts. There is a cap of up to Rs 10,000 on that income, though, which is applicable to both residents and non-residents.

Consult an experienced NRI tax service company for better knowledge of the things. Having a good support will always lead your way in better tax management.

Can NRI Purchase or Own a Property in India?

Before any monetary investment, it is very much important to know about the tax rules. Any non-resident Indian (NRI), who is interested in buying a property in India, should be aware of certain legal provisions pertaining to the purchase or owning of an immovable property in India under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). NRIs and persons of Indian origin (PIOs) are treated at par, for the purpose of investment in real estate.

Types of Properties for NRI’s to Invest in India

The Reserve Bank of India, through a circular, has given general permission to NRIs, to purchase any residential or commercial property in India. The investor need not seek any specific permission from the RBI, nor is he required to send any communication or intimation in this regard to the RBI. Under the existing general permissions, an NRI can purchase any number of residential or commercial properties. The income tax laws also allow an NRI to own as many residential or commercial properties as he or she wishes to take.

Important Do’s and Don’ts for Property Investment in India

In case the NRI is unable to come to India, the documents pertaining to the purchase can be executed by any person, who is given a valid power of attorney. Under the RBI’s general permission, an NRI cannot purchase any agricultural land or plantation property in India. Consequently, under the existing regulations, NRIs cannot purchase farmhouses in India. So, if an NRI wants to purchase a farmhouse or plantation, s/he will have to approach the RBI for a specific permission and the RBI will consider this on a case-to-case basis.

Joint Ownership: An NRI can purchase the property, either as a single owner, or jointly, with any other NRI. However, a resident Indian or a person, who is otherwise not allowed to invest in a property in India, cannot become a joint holder in such property, irrespective of the second holder’s contribution towards the purchase.

Continuance of Ownership of Property, After Becoming an NRI: What if a person who owns properties in India, subsequently, becomes an NRI? Such a person can continue to hold the property in his name in India. An NRI is also allowed to continue to own any agricultural land, plantation property, or farmhouse that he owned when he became an NRI, which he is otherwise not allowed to purchase, after becoming an NRI. They are also allowed to let out the property, irrespective of when it was acquired. The rent received from such property, can be remitted, after appropriate Indian taxes have been paid on such rent.

Likewise, any NRI is allowed to sell, or gift an immovable property to any person resident in India. He or she can also gift or transfer any property, other than agricultural property, farmhouse, or plantation property, to any NRI. It is very necessary to learn each and every clause of investment well. Taking the assistance from a reliable and trustworthy NRI tax service company will also help in this matter.

There is no restriction for them in buying only residential or commercial land as they can go for the both.

For NRI’s Salary Paid in India Won’t Face Tax

There is very good news for the NRI’s who are earning there and paying tax here or whose salary is paid in India. The Authority of Advance Rulings (AAR) has held that the salary income of a nonresident individual for services rendered overseas cannot be taxed in India, even when such salary is paid into a bank account in India. The ruling stands out because apart from providing relief from double taxation under the Indo-US tax treaty, the AAR additionally held that the sums received in India would not be taxable here under the domestic tax laws.

The ruling stands out because apart from providing relief from double taxation under the Indo-US tax treaty, the AAR additionally held that the sums received in India would not be taxable here under the domestic tax laws.

Unlike a tribunal or court order, a ruling by AAR, a quasi-judicial body, does not set a precedent. But it does have persuasive value and is well-considered. Thus, the ruling may benefit expat workers, in particular the over one lakh Indian workers who work in the US, largely on H1B visas.

Typically, when white-collared workers are ‘seconded’ on an overseas assignment by an Indian company, a split salary arrangement is worked out. Under ‘secondment’, the employee is transferred on the payroll of the overseas parent or Group Company, which pays the basic salary and certain allowances, in the overseas country. However, the Indian company deposits a part of the salary in the employee’s bank account in India. This enables the employee to meet certain obligations in India—such as repay such as repayment of housing loan or household expenses (as the family could be in India).

The nomenclature is different under the tax law for an Indian residing abroad and a non-resident Indian. When it comes to tax laws then definitely the country of origin or the number of days stay in India, wont determine the things but there are different laws to be followed for the same. Resident individuals are taxable in India on their global income, irrespective of where it was earned. In the case of non-residents, only income that accrues or arises in India (say, bank interest from a savings account in India or rental income from a house in Mumbai) is treated as taxable in India (see table). There is a third category, that is, resident but not ordinarily resident (RNOR), for whom the tax incidence is the same as for non-residents. Contacting a NRI tax service company that could give a better idea of the things would always be an additional benefit.
