The objective for
establishing Special Economic Zones, called as SEZ, is to increase the exports.
But, how will it improve the exports, if GST is levied on such SEZs?
GST will not be levied
on the supplies made to an establishment functioning in Special Economic Zone
or to the one which establishes the Special Economic Zone. Such transactions will be deemed as zero
rated supplies. Therefore, there is no impact on those establishments in the
Special Economic Zone. This will not affect the exports also.

I am dealing in textile
manufacturing. After procuring yarn at
18% tax, I sell garments made out of that yarn at the rate of 5% tax. While
assessing my annual transactions, the 18% tax remitted while procuring will be
a big sum. Can we get that (18% tax) as refund?
Under some exceptional
circumstances, the percentage of tax will be more on procurement and will be
less on sales. You can avail Input Tax Credit on the tax paid at the time of
procurement. But you cannot get it back as refund. It will be in your GST
account as ITC. You can use it at any time for remitting the tax.

We are procuring firewood,
which is used for fuel, in wholesale from various villages and supplying them to
various places in Tamilnadu. Our annual total sales turnover will be around

There is an exemption
from GST for the firewood which is used for fuel. If you are a person selling
the exempted goods only in the same State (Tamilnadu) where procured, you need
not register for GST.
