Indian Tax Structure Simplified
Indian Tax Structure Simplified

Wherever you may live around the world, you cannot avoid having to pay taxes to the local or national government. If you look at the etymology, the word tax comes from a Latin word “taxare” meaning ‘to censure/ charge/ compute’. Taxes come in various shapes and sizes like state taxes, central government taxes, direct taxes, indirect taxes and so on. In India, GST is the most ‘famous’ and functional tax. That’s the reason GST training to pursue various GST careers like GST consultant among others is quite popular in our country. 

What is a tax anyway? In layman terms, tax is a compulsory fee or financial charge levied by a government on an individual or an organisation to raise revenue for public works. The amount collected is then used to fund different public expenditure programs. Thus indirectly the money paid for only contributes to general public value in return. Inability or failure to pay taxes in any way sooner or later invites punishment under the law of the land.

GST Reforms: Anti-Profiteering Measures You Should Know
GST Reforms: Anti-Profiteering Measures You Should Know

Goods and Services Tax (GST) as the poster boy of Indirect Taxation in India has been in the news constantly since its implementation. The tax came into effect from 1 July 2017 through the implementation of the 101st Amendment of the Indian Constitution. A thorough understanding of GST is a must for successfully pursuing any GST course.

To recall, GST is an Indirect Tax (or Consumption Tax) used in India on the supply of goods and services. The GST replaced existing multiple taxes levied by the central and state governments except for a few state taxes. It is a comprehensive, multistage, destination-based tax.

Now we move on to our main agenda of today, profiteering and anti-profiteering measures that come under the ambit of the GST regime.

 

Profiteering 

Well, to understand profiteering, it’s imperative to understand profit margins. When a company sells products, it gathers a variety of expenses – like those incurred from taxes, building rent, raw material costs, and packaging costs.

Understandably, the company needs to charge a higher price to make a profit. The difference between those expenses and the revenue got from selling the products is the profit margin. Profiteering happens when product prices are inflated unfairly to create a higher profit margin. Companies may do this when there’s a high demand for their products, or when supplies are scarce.

As things stood right after the introduction of the GST regime, opportunities were readily created for profiteering, thus it called for strict measures right away.
