An open letter to the newly elected President of ICAI

Firstly, congratulations on assuming the highest office of the Institute. I hope you would feel honoured of having been given an opportunity to serve the CA fraternity while your partners at office are busy reeling in the additional client workload on your behalf which you have been getting for your firm from the time you got elected as a Central Council Member. You would now be signing several more MOUs for the ICAI at exotic locations which benefit just a few members but we are not complaining about it because talk about priorities and you just have 1 year in office.

Download Budget speech and Finance bill for 2018 by FM Arun Jaitely FY 2018-19

Madam, four years ago, we pledged to the people of India to give this nation an honest, clean and transparent Government. We promised a leadership capable of taking difficult decisions and restoring strong performance of Indian economy. We promised to reduce poverty, expedite infrastructure creation and build a strong, confident and a New India. When our Government took over, India was considered a part of fragile 5; a nation suffering from policy paralysis and corruption. We have decisively reversed this. The Government, led by Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has successfully implemented a series of fundamental structural reforms. With the result, India stands out among the fastest growing economies of the world.

Zero Rating of Supplies in GST

This means that in case of zero rating, not only is the output exempt from payment of tax, there is no bar on taking/availing credit of taxes paid on the input side for making/providing the output supply. Such an approach would in true sense make the goods or services zero rated.

Input Tax Credit Mechanism in GST

Uninterrupted and seamless chain of input tax credit (hereinafter referred to as, “ITC”) is one of the key features of Goods and Services Tax. ITC is a mechanism to avoid cascading of taxes. Cascading of taxes, in simple language, is ‘tax on tax’. Under the present system of taxation, credit of taxes being levied by Central Government is not available as set-off for payment of taxes levied by State Governments, and vice versa. One of the most important features of the GST system is that the entire supply chain would be subject to GST to be levied by Central and State Government concurrently.
