Corporate and Professional Updates on 4th July 2019

Indirect Tax Updates:

  • The amendment to Section 17 (5) of the Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) Act deals with blocked credit. “Section 17 (5) of the CGST Act and the respective state Acts have led to a paradoxical situation by denying credits as the objective of the GST is free flow of credits when the output is in the course or furtherance of business,” said Abhishek A Rastogi, partner at law firm Khaitan & Co, who filed the writ petition on behalf of real estate companies.
  • “The impugned provisions are against the objectives of GST and have accordingly been challenged on the grounds of arbitrariness and vagueness.” Tax experts said the phrase ‘on his own account’ in the GST law will need to be interpreted differently if one were to take input tax credit. Input tax credit refers to a mechanism under the GST framework wherein the tax a company pays when it purchases raw materials or other services can be passed on to the buyer when the goods or services are sold.

RBI Updates:

  • The Reserve Bank of Indiawill take a relook at its supervision structure for banks, finance companies and other entities regulated by the central bank. It will initiate a discussion with its board of directors on a proposal to overhaul the crucial job of supervision so that the regulator is better equipped in picking up early warning signs. This may involve consolidating the different supervisory activities under a separate division or head, creating a pool of officials for better analysis of the continuous flow of data from banks and finance companies, and involving specialists.

SEBI Updates:

  • The Securities and Exchange Board of India on Monday came out with a discussion paper highlighting proposals for allowing a start-up listed on the Innovators Growth Platform (IGP) to trade under the regular category of the main board. According to the proposals, the company should have listed on the IGP for a year and have a minimum of 200 shareholders for making the shift. The company, or any of its promoters, promoter group or directors, should not have been debarred from accessing the capital market or been a willful defaulter.
  • Minimum promoters’ contribution should be 20 per cent of the total capital. In case of a shortfall, alternative investment funds, foreign venture capital investors, scheduled commercial banks, public financial institutions or insurance companies can step in, subject to a maximum of 10 per cent of the total capital. This capital shall be locked in for three years from the date on which trading approval on the main board is granted, and any excess over and above the 20 per cent of promoter’s holding shall be locked-in for one year. The lock-in would not apply for companies listed on the IGP for three years or more.

Corporate and Professional Updates on 2nd July 2019

Indirect Tax updates:

  • Policymakers could merge the 12% and 18% slabs under the goods and services tax going forward as revenue increases, thereby effectively making it a two-tier tax. Jaitley made the suggestion in a Facebook post on the second anniversary of the GST roll out. He had opted out of the new government due to health reasons. The former finance minister, who had led the GST talks with states, said as many as 20 states were already showing more than a 14% increase in their revenue. These states no longer require the Centre to compensate them for revenue loss arising out of the GST implementation, he said. Under the GST framework, most items of consumer use have been brought in the 18%, 12% and even 5% category.
  • The GST Council, chaired by the union finance minister and comprising finance ministers of states, has reduced tax rates over the last two years “Except on luxury and sin goods, the 28% slab has almost been phased out. Zero and 5% slabs will always remain. Observing that a sudden reduction of tax rates on all categories of goods could lead to a massive loss of revenue for the government, leaving it without resources to spend.
  • The exercise had to be done in a gradual manner as the revenues increased. “The fear of the states today is that for the first five years they get a guaranteed 14% increase. Every state has been paid its share of tax as also from the compensation fund, if necessary. We have just completed two years of GST
  • A single-slab GST is possible only in extremely affluent countries where there are no poor people, adding that it would be inequitable to apply a single rate in countries where there are a large number of people below the poverty line. “In the pre-GST regime, the rich and the poor, on various commodities, paid the same tax. The multiple slab system not only checked inflation, it also ensured that the aam aadmi products are not exorbitantly taxed.
