Question 1:

I am working in an establishment. From my annual salary, professional tax is being deducted. Will it be cancelled after GST implementation?


The taxes on goods and services have been unified and GST has been introduced. But the professional tax will not come under the ambit of GST. Therefore, the tax deducted from your salary will be continued. While remitting income tax, you can deduct the professional tax.


Question 2:

We are selling rain coats on whole sale basis. In some months, there won’t be any sales. On such months also, are the GST returns to be submitted?


Yes.  A registered person, even if he is not engaged in supply in a month,  must submit the returns on the respective dates.


Question: 3

After applying online to obtain new GST registration, should the respective documents are to be sent directly or through post?


Since the filing of all documents is in electronic format under GST Infrastructure, it is enough to file online application.  There is no need to submit any document directly or through post.

While sending the goods for job work, are the details of accounts to be kept and maintained by the principal supplier or the service man engaged in job work.

There is no ITC to us as on June 30th 2017. Should we submit the details of stock in hand on that date to the government?
