The Government circulated draft of the GST Model Law requesting for suggestions from the industry. The industry and experts have been poring over the draft. The article seeks to highlight the need to reconsider one of the provisions related to input tax credits. The proposed GST Legislation appears to deny tax credit in relation to input services for which payments are made after three months of the date of the invoice of the supplier. In fact the proposal mandates payment of interest in addition to the denial of credit in foreign company registration in India.
Also, under the current legislation, customer can re-claim the credit reversed earlier on making payment against the invoice. However, a similar provision is missing under GST and consequently may result in permanent loss of input credit of tax paid earlier in tax consultancy firms in Delhi.
