Liability to Pay GST which is unpaid – For Stakeholders

Liability-to-Pay-unpaid-gst

Liability to pay GST – For Agent and Principal

If an agent supplies or receives any taxable goods on behalf of his principal, then both the agent and the principal will be liable to pay unpaid GST, jointly and severally. This defines the liability to pay GST for both agents and principal.

Liability of Directors of Private Company

If a private company does not pay its dues, then the directors of the company will become jointly and severally liable for the dues, i.e. there will be some personal liability for directors. In this case, only the directors who were in office during the period when the tax was due, will have the liability to pay GST. However, if a director can prove to the tax commissioner that the non-payment was not due to any negligence or breach of duty due to his part, then he will not be held liable.

Note: Nothing has been specified as such in the GST Act with regards to conversion or transfer of a private company to a public company. However, a rule in this section states, that this provision does not apply when a private company is converted to a public company. Thus, it can be interpreted to mean that this provision does not apply to public limited companies.

Liability of Partners of a Partnership Firm

In a partnership firm, all the partners have unlimited liability. Similarly under GST, the partners of the firm are jointly and severally liable to pay unpaid GST which is due irrespective of any clause in the partnership deed or any other law.

In case of retirement of a partner, the commissioner must be informed of the same by the firm or the retiring partner. This is because, it could be possible that the retiring partner could have the liability to pay GST until the date of his retirement. If any intimation regarding the retirement is not given within 1 month, the retiring partner will continue to face liabilty for unpaid GST, till such an intimation is received by the commissioner.

Liability of Guardians, Trustees, Agents

Liability to pay GST comes into play when any business is conducted by a guardian or trustee or agent on behalf of and for the benefit of a minor or an incapacitated person. In case of any tax amount due, both the guardians or trustees or agents and the beneficiary will be liable to pay under the GST Act, and the due amount may be recovered from both parties. Thus, it is important to understand GST liability of guardians, GST liability of trustees and GST liability of agents, for such scenarios.

Liability of Court of Wards

This scenario is applicable, when the estate of a taxable person owning a business, is under the control of the Court of Wards or the Administrator General or the Official Trustee or any receiver or manager appointed by a court. In such a case, if the business owes any amount under GST, then all entities will be equally held liable, i.e. the Court of Wards, the Administrator General, the Official trustee, any receiver or manager along with the taxable person.

How Tally.ERP 9 Simplifies Generating E-Way Bills for you?

generating-e-Way-Bills-using-Tally-ERP-9

You might have already generated e-Way Bills for your business since e-Way Bills are mandatory for interstate movement of goods in India from April 1st onwards.

An e-Way Bill has to be generated if the total of taxable value and tax amount in the invoice of goods being transported exceeds Rs. 50,000, and in few States for intrastate transactions as well.

By now, you must also be aware of the challenges involved in generating e-Way Bills. It is quite likely that you are evaluating a software to make it easy for you to generate and manage e-Way Bills, or you are already using Tally.ERP 9 to do so.

In this blogpost, we will take you through the various challenges that businesses go through on a typical day and how Tally.ERP 9 supports them by helping generate e-Way Bills in a faster and simplified way. Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4 has been launched with the purpose to make e-Way Bill generation and management easy for you.

Generating e-Way Bills faster using Tally.ERP 9

For many businesses, generating e-Way Bills is now mandatory in addition to their routine activities. Businesses need to generate e-Way Bills faster and correctly for overall efficiency.

Businesses such as distributors of machinery, electrical equipment, consumer durables, wholesalers and manufacturers who dispatch goods in bulk will find it handy to generate an e-Way Bill right at the time of creating the invoice.

Keeping this in view, at the time of creating the invoice after you have provided all the invoice level details, Tally.ERP 9 opens an additional form where you can provide transportation and other details required for generating e-Way Bill.

On the other hand, a business involved in dispatching small quantities of goods such as FMCG distributors will find it a hindrance to generate e-Way Bills for every transaction. They will prefer to generate e-Way Bills in bulk since they dispatch goods for multiple orders at the same time.

In such a case, you can disable the e-Way Bill form in Tally.ERP 9 when creating sales invoices. When you are ready to dispatch goods, you can see all the transactions for which e-Way Bills are yet to be generated. You can select them all together and export them as a single JSON file which can be uploaded on the e-Way Bill portal. The portal will generate e-Way Bills for all these invoices in a single click.

How Tally.ERP 9 helps generate e-Way bills correctly?

Errors can take place when entering data. Tally.ERP 9 has inbuilt capability to check for such errors.
In the absence of any mandatory detail such as distance, vehicle number, pin codes of consignee and consignor, and so on, Tally.ERP 9 will not allow you to export the JSON file for the purpose of generating e-Way Bill. It also checks if the GSTIN numbers and Transporter IDs of the parties are correct or not.

Due to all these inbuilt checks, the chances of your JSON file getting rejected in the e-Way Bill portal is minimized. Generation of e-Way Bills will be faster and accurate.

Be sure to not to miss e-Way bills

Typically, businesses are involved in multiple things at the same time. In a hurry, you could send the goods to your transporter without an e-Way Bill. Due to this, your consignment can get delayed and you will miss out on your promise made to customer. This situation can be avoided easily. Tally.ERP 9 ensures that all the transactions for which e-Way Bills are yet to be generated are available in one place in a single report. You will never miss generating the required e-Way Bills. Even if you have created an e-Way Bill in the portal first, you can update the respective transaction with e-Way Bill details at a later stage through this report.

How Tally.ERP 9 helps in generating consolidated e-Way bill?

If the State, place of supply, vehicle no. and mode of transport are the same, then you can group such invoices, generate their individual e-Way Bills and finally consolidate the individual e-Way Bills and generate a single consolidated e-Way Bill.

Tally.ERP 9 helps you in grouping invoices based on the above criteria, with a single click. This makes it convenient for the transporter since he can now carry just the single consolidated e-Way Bill for multiple invoices.
We have taken you through various kinds of business scenarios with respect to e-Way Bills and explained how Tally.ERP 9 handles all of them, simplifying the generation of e-Way Bills. We are eager to hear about your experiences. Download Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4 and let e-Way Bill management make your business more efficient. Do share your experience with us.

Update your Tally.ERP 9 to Release 6.4 for latest enhancements

Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4 is our latest product for businesses, launched on 23rd Feb. 2018.

If you are a business owner, do you need to upgrade to this release? If you are a tax consultant, must you ask your clients to upgrade?  These are some obvious questions in your minds.

In this blogpost, we will take you through the benefits of using Release 6.4. We are confident that by the time you have finished reading this blogpost, you will have all your doubts cleared.

Release 6.4 addresses two important needs of our customers. E-Way Bill management and GST compliance for composite dealers.

Enhancements in Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4

1. e-Way Bill Management

If you are a business owner, e-Way Bills are going to become bigger part of your daily life sooner than you expect. If you are transporting goods worth Rs. 50,000 or more and beyond the distance of 10 kms or more, you can do so only with an e-Way Bill.

As enablers of GST compliance for businesses, we have introduced e-Way Bill Management in Tally.ERP 9. Let’s walk through the important benefits of using Tally.ERP 9 for managing your e-Way Bills.

Generate e-Way Bills quickly

Tally.ERP 9 makes your life simpler! While creating an invoice, as soon as you start keying in the details, Release 6.4 allows you to capture additional transportation related details at the same time. You can export the invoice in a JSON file and upload it on the e-Way Bill portal to generate the e-Way Bill. The e-Way Bill Number (EBN) appears on the e-Way Bill along with other details.

You can enter the EBN against the corresponding invoice in Tally.ERP 9, take a print and hand it over to your transporter.

With Tally.ERP 9, you don’t have to re-enter all the invoice details again on the e-Way Bill portal for the purpose of generating e-Way Bill and save valuable time while reducing operational effort.

Create e-Way Bills for single or multiple invoices

Let’s take a case where you have received multiple orders and prefer to dispatch them together. Tally.ERP 9 allows you to easily generate e-way bills for all these invoices in one go. With latest version of Tally.ERP 9, you can export for all these invoices together at one go, rather than generating individual JSON files for each single invoice.

Tally.ERP 9 gives you the flexibility to generate e-Way Bills as per your business behaviour.

Create e-Way bills for different business scenarios

As a business, you come across different scenarios on a day-to-day basis. Sometimes, your supplier may not be able to generate an e-Way Bill. You might have made a purchase from an unregistered dealer who is unable to generate the e-Way Bill. If you are returning back some goods to your supplier, then you must have an e-Way Bill. Tally.ERP 9 gives you the flexibility to deal with all such scenarios and generate e-Way Bills under any circumstances.

You can also export JSON files of purchases, credit notes, delivery notes and receipt notes to generate e-Way Bills.
Track and manage transactions which need e-Way Bills
If you have hundreds of transactions, it can be difficult to keep a track of all those which qualify for e-Way Bills. No more worries! Tally.ERP 9 identifies transactions for which e-Way Bills are yet to be generated.

You can also find out invoices with missing information from the e-Way Bill Report and fill in the necessary information. You can update transactions with missing EBNs under Update e-Way Bill Information tab.

Generate Consolidated e-Way Bill

The e-Way Bill portal allow you to generate a consolidated e-Way Bill if the place of supply, State, mode of transport and vehicle number are the same. You can group invoices accordingly in Tally.ERP 9, generate a consolidated JSON and upload the same to the portal for generating a consolidated e-Way Bill. However, before doing this, ensure that you have generated e-Way Bills for each invoice individually which is a prerequisite.

Another important need that we addressed in latest version of Tally.ERP 9 is GST compliance for Composite Dealers.

2. GST Compliance for Composite Dealers

If your business turnover is equal to or less than Rs.1.5 crores, then you can opt for the Composition Scheme. Although the burden of tax compliance is lesser if you are a composite dealer, you still have to file GSTR-4 on a quarterly basis and follow some simple steps for compliance.

Tally.ERP Release 6.4 is a seamless GST solution for composite dealers. You can maintain books, configure tax rates, generate Bill of Supply, manage reverse charge transactions and generate GSTR-4 in JSON for filing. Below are the business benefits of using Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4 for Composite dealers.

Configure tax rate in a single step

A flat tax rate of 1% is applicable for manufacturers and traders under the Composition Scheme. It takes just a step to configure the tax rate in your Tally.ERP 9 at the company level. Tally.ERP 9 calculates tax liability on your total taxable turnover.

We all know that tax rates can change under the GST regime. In such cases, you can apply the new applicable tax rate and maintain earlier transactions with their tax history in Tally.ERP 9. Let us understand this better by way of an example.

Assume that a tax rate of 2% is applicable from 1st April to 20th May, while 1% tax rate will be applicable from 21st May to 30th June. Tally.ERP 9 will automatically consider both the tax rates along with their applicable dates in your GSTR-4.

Segregate taxable, nil rated and exempted sales

As per the latest notification of CBEC (Central Board of Excise & Customs), composite dealers have to pay tax on their taxable turnover. To arrive at the right amount of taxable turnover, as a composite dealer, you must segregate the sales into taxable, nil rated and exempted sales. Tally.ERP 9 takes care of this when calculating tax liability on taxable turnover.

Record your purchases in the right manner

As a composite dealer you cannot claim any Input Tax Credit on purchases, yet have to pay taxes. Now these taxes have to be factored in under purchase cost.

With Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4, firstly you can define the amount of tax in the Item Master. Secondly, this tax amount gets allocated to your purchase cost. This reflects in your Stock Summary Cost under the Stock Summary Report. Although the tax rates are configured for each item, Tally.ERP 9 ensures that the rates get applied only when you make purchases and not when you engage in any sales.

Manage reverse charge transactions

A composite dealer is liable to pay reverse charges in case of specified purchases and import of services. With Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4, you can record such transactions easily and their impact reflects in your GSTR-4, provided you raise tax liability using the Stat Adjustment feature.

Generate and print Bill of Supply

Composite dealers have to issue Bill of Supply instead of invoices for all their sales.  With Tally.ERP 9 latest version, you can prepare Bill of Supply as per GST defined format and issue them for sales.

File GSTR-4 using Tally.ERP 9

Composite dealers have to file GSTR-4 on a quarterly basis. If there are any errors in transactions, Tally.ERP 9 detects and helps you to correct them while you prepare the data for GSTR-4. You can easily generate GSTR-4 in a JSON format, which can be uploaded on GST Portal to file the returns.
Release 6.4 has many more rich capabilities to help you manage your GST compliance better. We would like to hear from you, especially your experience of this release. Do upgrade, use the latest version and also share with your business colleagues so that everyone is able to make use of the benefits of our latest Tally.ERP 9 Release 6.4.

VAT – Jammu and Kashmir

Exporting VAT Annexure 49 to MS Excel was taking an extremely long time.

This has been addressed. You will find that exporting is much quicker now.

GST

     You can set up GST rates for a particular price range/slab for multiple stock items from GST Rate Setup screen.

     The company’s GSTIN/UIN was not displayed in the invoice printout when the secondary address of the company was selected for printing. This issue is resolved.

     If you enabled the option Print company logo? in the Receipt Printing Configuration screen, the company’s GSTIN/UIN was not displayed in the printed advance receipt. This issue is resolved.

     In the GST sales invoice printout, the state codes of consignor and consignee were printed incorrectly in neat mode when:

o     Multiple addresses were enabled for the party.

o     The option Allow separate buyer and consignee names? was enabled in the Voucher Configuration screen.

This issue is resolved.

     The address details in the Buyer section of the invoice printout was shrinking when the options Print State Name & State Code? and Print Place of Supply? were set to Yes in the Invoice Print Configuration screen. This issue is resolved.

     The HSN/SAC was not displayed in the printed invoice when it was recorded with:

o     Stock items predefined with HSN/SAC.

o     Sales/purchase ledgers predefined only with tax rate and not the HSN/SAC.

This issue is resolved. Now, if the HSN/SAC is not defined in the sales/purchase ledger, but is available in any of the masters linked to the transaction, the same will be printed in the invoice.

     When the sales invoice or delivery note was printed from voucher display mode, the Place of Supply was not displayed. This occurred even when the option Print Place of Supply? was set to Yes in the Invoice Print Configuration screen. This issue is resolved.

VAT

Jammu and Kashmir

     The data export to MS Excel templates is enhanced as given below:

o     Values are exported invoice-wise in a single row, with values of each tax rate displayed in respective columns. When there is more than one tax rate belonging to the Other % column of the template, the column will be left blank. The values of both tax rates will be consolidated and displayed in Amount (Other %) column. This is provided in Annexure 48, 48C, 48I, 48IS, 48L, 48S, 49, 49I, and 49S.

o     The Commodity name predefined for the stock item with the highest value in the invoice is captured in the Nature of Goods column of Annexure 48IS, 48L, 48S and 49S.

     Exporting data to the MS Excel template of Annexure 49 was taking too long. This issue is resolved.

Rajasthan

     Data export to the latest template of Form 10 is supported for filing e-returns. The details of VAT/CST payment vouchers are captured from row 33 instead of row 27 of the Details of Tax Due sheet of the template VATForm10_2015.xls.

TDS/TCS

     The latest File Validation Utility (FVU) tool version 5.5 is supported to validate the forms for E-TDS/TCS before filing returns.

The following changes are supported as per the latest FVU tool version 5.5:

o     The nature of payment Payment of Cash Consideration by Real Estate Developer to Property Owner has been renamed as Payment Under Specified Agreement with the Payment code of 41C.

o     As per the changes in section code 206CC, in the party ledger, when PAN/IT No. is defined as PANAPPLIED or PANINVALID or PANNOTAVBL for sales made with the nature of goods Timber Obtained by Any Mode Other Than Forest Lease, the transaction will be marked as C in the data exported to the text file for filing e-returns.

Licensing

However, you need to contact your Tally Partner to make your customisations compatible with Release 6 or later.

Data Management

     The installation path of Tally.ERP 9 has been changed to C:\Program Files\Tally\Tally.ERP9 to avoid overriding of installation of releases prior to 6.0.2.
