Businesses registered in Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura must get a GST registration if their aggregate turnover exceeds Rs. 10 lakh.

A business that conducts trade with another state must seek registration regardless of turnover.

  • How would the composition scheme work under GST?

    Small businesses registered under the GST composition scheme can pay GST at a fixed rate (i.e 1%, 5% or 6%) of turnover every quarter and file GST returns annually.

    Only Manufacturers of goods, dealers, and restaurants (not serving alcohol) whose annual turnover did not cross the Rs.1.5 crore thresholdin the preceding financial year is elligible to opt for the composition scheme. In case of states like Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura and Uttarakhand the turnover limit for composition scheme is Rs 75 lakh.

    There are few conditions in order to avail the composition scheme. A person will not be elligible if he/she is involved in the supply of goods which are not leviable to tax, they are not engaged in making any inter-state outward supply of goods, not engaged in supply of goods via e-commerce operator (i.eAmazon, Flipkart, etc), is not a manufacturer of ice cream, pan masala, aerated water, tobaco and tobaco substitutes.

    For the purpose of computing the aggregating turnover, we shall include the turnover of taxable supplies (excluding the value of inward supplies on which tax is payable on reverse charge basis), exempt supplies, export of goods or services or both and interstate supplies of persons having the same PAN to be computed on all India basis but excludes GST (CGST, SGST, UTT, IGST, Cess)

    Composition tax payer will not be allowed to avail the GST input credit on his inward supplies. The validity of composition scheme will depend on the turnover of the business concern in the current year. If the turn over in the current year crossess the threashold mark of Rs. 1.5 crore (or Rs. 75 lakh, as the case maybe) they will have to switch to the normal scheme and would thereafter be elligible to avail the input tax credit on the stock of raw material, semi-finished goods, finished goods and capital goods held by him on the date of withdrawal of the composition scheme.
