VAT and CST Registration

VAT and CST Registration

    About Service
Value-added Tax (VAT) Registration, also erroneously known as TIN and CST Registration, is mandatory for any business entity engaged in the sale of goods in India and a turnover of over Rs. 5 lakh (although it may be higher in some states). It is a multi-stage state tax that accumulates at various stages of production and supply. At every stage, the purchaser pays the tax and is allowed to offset the same on subsequent sale. Consumers, therefore, ultimately bear this tax. VAT is collected by the state government and it is essential to know what the VAT rate is for the type of good or service you provide in each state you provide it in.

  1. When are VAT filings to be done?

  2. Do I need to be in office during the inspection?
    It is better to be present in the office during inspection.
  3. What is Central Sales Tax?
    VAT is levied on intra-state sale of goods, while Central Sales Tax (CST) applies to inter-state sale of goods.
  4. Is there a difference in the applicability of VAT and CST?
    VAT is applicable on imported goods as well as those manufactured within the country. While the rate may differ from one type of item to the next, the rate will be the same whether imported or domestically produced. Whereas, CST is levied on both imported goods as well as those produced within the country at the same rate.
  5. Is VAT applicable on exports?
    For goods exported from India, VAT is not applicable. Therefore, exporters of goods are not required to pay VAT. However, it is advisable for exporters to obtain VAT registration.
