With the introduction of GST we came across three types of electronic ledgers. The electronic credit ledger or E-credit ledger, is further sub branched into three different credit. They are the central goods and service tax or CGST, international goods and service tax or IGST, and the state goods and service tax or SGST. The money which is contained in the electronic credit ledger can only be made useful for making the payment of taxes, and not any other purpose.
There are various necessary records which is the prime responsibility of different business possessors; they maintain it strictly following the rules set by the GST.
- The name as well as the address of the supplier of the goods, each and every detail of the inward supplies bought by the taxpayer are kept into account. Apart from the details of purchases, the facts of sales are also kept, such as, the nooks and crannies of the outward supplies exchanged by the taxpayer. It also keeps an account of the name and address of the person who buys the commodities. Needless to say that the details regarding the manufacture or the production of goods are also noted.
- Return filing in GSTis done by the remunerator who keeps the detailed track of the amount and kinds of commodities which are presently available, in the inventory of the same.
- Both the output tax payable and the amount of GST paid with the selling of finished products and services as well as for the avail of the input tax credit or cash is closely noted.
- GST for software keeps a detailed account of the value of the input tax credit. The former which is accessible at the time of the purchase of raw goods or other capital materials is known. Also any further records if needed by the government for a particular kind of business is also noted. As for example, the products and the services which are exported or imported at the time of a particular tax period. The internal as well as the external reservoir which allure the payment of taxes on a contrary charge, along with considerable documents such as delivery challans, invoices, debit notes, bills of supply, credit notes, payment vouchers, e-way bills, receipt vouchers, refund vouchers etc.
The goods and service tax brought the greatest modification in the idea of the input tax credit. Input tax is known as the tax which is paid for every purchase of any dressed product or services. Such input taxes, used for the buying of goods are used for the flourishing of business. The input tax can also be used for offsetting the tax which is paid on the outputs like the finished products and services. The dual element structure of goods and service tax is quite familiar to a lot of people. This succumbs to the division of intrastate transactions like the central GST or the CGST, paid to the central government, and state GST or SGST paid to the state government.
