Introduction

The government has extended IGST (Integrated Goods and Service Tax) and compensatory cess exemptions for goods procured under various export promotion schemes till June 30, 2022, providing assistance to exporters. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the IGST and Compensation Cess exemptions available under the Export Promotion Scheme.

 

Before going through the exemptions, let’s have a quick look at “What is IGST?” And “What is Compensation Cess?”

What is IGST (Integrated Goods and Service Tax)?

IGST (Integrated Goods and Service Tax), which will be governed by the IGST Act, is a tax levied on all inter-state supplies of goods and/or services under the GST. In both circumstances of import into India and export from India, the IGST will apply to any supply of goods and/or services.

What is Compensation Cess?

The Compensation Cess is a tax that will be levied on certain goods and/or services, or both, until July 1, 2022. The Cess will reimburse states for any revenue losses incurred as a result of the GST adoption. Those who have chosen the compensation levy will not have to pay this Cess.

Information on DGFT Notification

Integrated Goods and Service Tax (IGST) and compensating cess exemptions under the Advance Authorization (AA), Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG) scheme, and Export Oriented Units (EOU) scheme have been extended by the DGFT till June 30, 2022.

  • The exemption from integrated tax and compensation cess under Advance Authorization under paragraph 4.14 of the Foreign Trade Policy 2015-2020 has been extended until June 30, 2022, according to a notification issued by the DGFT on April 1, 2022.

DGFT has extended the IGST and compensating Cess exemptions under EPS (Export Promotion Scheme)

  • Export Promotion of Capital Goods Scheme

  • Units with a focus on export Scheme

MSME (Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprise) exporters who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic aftershock have breathed a sigh of relief. Exporters will benefit from this exemption because they would not have to pay IGST at the moment of sale. They must pay the indirect tax and then request a refund under the GST framework, which is a lengthy procedure.
