5 Steps to Ensure GST Compliance

Understanding and adhering to GST compliance is crucial for businesses to ensure smooth operations and avoid legal complications. From registration to annual returns, e-invoicing, and E-way bills, this comprehensive guide provides insights into the various aspects of GST compliance and offers practical tips to streamline the process.

GST Registration Applicability

For businesses with a turnover below 40 Lacs for goods and 20 Lacs for services (Subject to state-wise regulations), GST registration is not mandatory, and they are considered unregistered tax entities. However, exceptions may apply, and businesses should review the GST registration rules.

Turnovers ranging from 40 Lacs to 1.5 Cr provide the option to register as a Composite Taxpayer. This allows businesses to obtain GSTIN and file a single return, CMP 08, enjoying the benefit of a lower tax rate.

For businesses with a turnover exceeding Rs. 1.5 Cr, registration as a regular taxpayer is required. Monthly GST Returns need to be filed to report sales data and fulfill tax liabilities. Optionally, for turnovers up to Rs. 5 Cr, businesses may choose the Quarterly Returns with Monthly Payments (QRMP) scheme.

ITC Reconciliation

Reconciling purchase data with suppliers' sales data is essential for availing ITC.

The government provides auto-drafted dynamic purchase statements like GSTR-2A and GSTR 2B for simplified reconciliation and ITC claims. As businesses grow, discrepancies may arise, making it challenging to navigate through numerous invoices for potential errors.

Maximizing ITC claims is crucial for maintaining healthy cash flow. Well-defined internal processes and solutions, like utilizing GSTR 2B, can assist in reconciling purchase data and maximizing ITC claims.

Annual Return and Self-Certification

Annual GST Return (GSTR 9) and GSTR 9C, the annual reconciliation statement, are essential for summarizing a year's worth of transactions. GSTR 9C can be furnished through self-certification instead of an audit report from CA or Cost Accountants, as per GST Notification 29/2021.

For businesses under the composition scheme, GSTR-4 is an annual return that needs to be filed.

E-invoice and e-way bill

Understanding the basics of e-invoicing and e-way bills is crucial as the mandate expands.

The e-invoicing mandate, initially for businesses with Rs. 500 Crore turnover, has extended to businesses with a turnover of Rs. 5 Crore from August 1, 2023. For businesses involving the movement of goods, generating an E-way Bill is crucial. E-way Bills are required for the movement of goods with a consignment value exceeding Rs. 50,000.

e-Invoices and e-way bill can be generated through integrated APIs that fulfil the compliance requirements.
