GSTR Composition scheme

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) composition scheme is a special scheme designed for small businesses to simplify the compliance process.

In the context of India’s GST system, the composition scheme is available for businesses with an aggregate turnover up to a certain threshold. Here are some key points about the GST composition scheme:

1. Eligibility Criteria:

   – The aggregate turnover threshold for the composition scheme varies for different states, and it is subject to change based on government notifications.

   – Typically, businesses with a turnover below a specified limit are eligible to opt for the composition scheme.

2. Applicability:

   – The composition scheme is applicable to certain categories of taxpayers, such as manufacturers, traders, and restaurants, with a turnover below the prescribed limit.

3. Tax Payment:

– Businesses under the composition scheme pay tax at a fixed rate on their turnover, without the need to maintain detailed records.

   – The rate of tax is lower than the regular GST rates, but the trade-off is that businesses cannot claim input tax credit.

4. Quarterly Filing:

   – Under the composition scheme, businesses generally file quarterly returns instead of the regular monthly returns.

5. No Input Tax Credit (ITC):

   – Businesses under the composition scheme cannot avail themselves of input tax credit on their purchases.

6. Invoice and Record Keeping:

   – Simplified invoices need to be issued by businesses in the composition scheme.

   – Detailed records of inward and outward supplies are not required to be maintained.
