Obtaining AEO T-1 certification for the client, providing him substantial benefits by improving the efficiency in Customs procedures at the time of imports and exports.
The implementation of GST brought our client under the ambit of Inverted Duty Rate Structure, i.e., the higher tax rate on inputs as compared to the tax rate on outputs which results into the massive accumulation of tax credits. Given the inverted duty structure, such accumulated tax credits would get accumulated in the long run not be utilized in the years to come. We represented this issue before the GST Council. An in-depth study was undertaken on the financial impact of the accumulation of ITC vis-à-vis the refunds, which would be available to the client as per the projected financial statements and the projected refund computations. A comprehensive document containing the arguments with tax computation tables was prepared and submitted in support of the client’s claim.
In the GoM meeting, crucial discussions on the multiple aspects of the return mechanism were held. The GST Council apprised us of the various returns models conceptualized and their key features. Based on our discussions during the meeting, we obtained feedback from our clients. Based on the client feedback and our analysis of the implications of the conceptualized returns system and the feedback received from our clients, we presented our view to the Goods and Services Tax Network (GSTN).
