Previously, we had been availing ourselves of a concession of 50% in the first year and remaining in the subsequent year on excise and service tax for capital goods, as input tax credit. Will the same privilege continue in the present GST also? 


GST Input Tax Credit of 100% for capital goods can be availed in the first year itself. No compulsion to avail it by separating them into two years.


Will the tax payable under reverse charge basis, be stable in same percentage?


The percentage of tax under reverse charge basis will change according to the tax rate for goods. For example, if goods of 18% tax are procured from an unregistered person, the reverse charge tax of 18% must be remitted and it will be 5%, if the goods of 5% tax are procured.
