WHo can opt for Composition scheme under GST?
According to the latest update, the businesses with a turnover up to Rs 1.5 crore can opt for the Composition Scheme and pay only 1% tax. Also, service provider having turnover up to 50 lakhs can opt for composition scheme for services and pay only 6% of tax.
Under the composition scheme, the composition dealer cannot issue a tax invoice meaning, he/she cannot charge tax from customers. The dealer needs to issue a Bill of Supply. The main advantage of opting the composition scheme is that there are lesser compliances as only quarterly returns are required to be filed, example GST4. The due date for filing Form GSTR-4 is 18th of the month succeeding the quarter or as extended by Government from time to time. For the quarter of April to June 2019 the Due Date is 18th July 2019. Even in case of a nil return, GSTR4 is required to be filed. However, an annual return GSTR-9A is also required to be filed on or before 30th June 2019 for F.Y 2017-18.
