HOW TO CALCULATE YOUR GST?
For any business in India, interested in making an application for a Goods and Service Tax (GST) registration, one of the most important requirements is the ‘Aggregate Turnover’ of the business relevant to the aggregate meaning
• Turnover: Commonly this is referred to as the value of sales over a given period of time.
• Aggregate Turnover in GST: The taxable element for the supply of goods and services for businesses that have opted in for the composition scheme. Exempt from this are inter-state supplies, exported goods, and services (except for restaurants and restaurant related services). For purposes of the GST application process, the aggregate turnover includes supplies the business makes that are relevant to the composition scheme and excludes interstate sales, exports, and services outside restaurants and restaurant related services.
RATIONALE BEHIND THE AGGREGATE TURNOVER
For any GST application registration, the aggregate turnover, aggregate meaning, is a standard requirement. No GST applications will be considered unless this aggregate turnover is confirmed.
GST aggregate turnover laws:
• Turnover up to 20 lakhs – Exempt from GST.
• Turnover up to 10 lakhs – Different rules apply with some special categories. Jammu and Kashmir are completely exempt from registration. But if the turnover climbs above 10 lakhs then the rule changes and the registration is required.
To calculate the aggregate turnover, aggregate meaning, use the amount of business activities conducted by all relevant parties based on the Permanent Account Number ( PAN)–India basis.
GOVERNMENT AGREED ON STATES WITH SPECIAL CATEGORIES
The eleven states with special Government privileges are:
• Jammu & Kashmir (fully exempt)
• Himachal Pradesh
• Arunchal Pradesh
