CBEC Union Territory Tax Rate Notification 40/2017 dt. 23/10/2017: 0.1% UTGST Rate for Supplies to Exporters
These notifications are effective from which date?
The merchant exporter purchase @ 0.1% is counter productive as previously they were allowed to claim refund of the gst paid on procured material once it is exported. in the revised situation, the supplier to the merchant exporter will be able to charge only 0.1% gst, whereas he might have paid anything between 5% to 28% gst on various raw material and packing material for which, there will be no set off available to the supplier, which will result in increase in the costing of the product as set off on sale bill raised to merchant exporter is restricted to 0.1%
In case the registered supplier is not a manufacturer but a trader or authorised dealer…how will the input credit taken for the goods supplied to registered recipient treated.. 1. Can set off against other sales.. 2. Can claim refund?
my question is…. “A Merchant exporter can purchase the materials from trader (not manufacturer) for purpose of export and avail option to pay 0.1% GST under notification41/2017 GST Act
but what about the refund of gst paid by supplie?
What if the merchant exporter is not registered under GST? He cannot make purchases for export from a manufacturer?
Reference to above condition (ix)… if Merchant Exporter does not want to know their supplier that where he exported on which price / which place? as the shipping bill contains all details. What is supposed to be done to hide such confidential details>
The general practise I follow is to hide the end user’s name while keeping the export price as it is. The reason not to hide the price is that in any case, there is a QR code on the top right hand of the SB, and the INR export price can be known by the supplier if he can download the ICETRAK app.
Secondly, the supplier too knows that there will be a reasonable amount of profit margin, which will be kept by the merchant exporter; therefore, in my opinion, hiding the end user’s name is more important in the SB than hiding the price.
There is no such rule that states that the merchant exporter should not be erasing the end user’s name while submitting the SB to the supplier. As long as the SB mentions the GSTN, the tax invoice, and the name of the supplier, it’s in compliance with the requirements. I hope this answers your query.
What if the Merchant Exporter is not registered with Export Promotion Council or Commodity Board recognized by Dept. of Commerce? Still can Supplier sell the Goods to such Merchant Exporter with 0.1%. Although the Merchant Exporter will furnish all other requirement except registration with EPC/Board.
Whether merchant exporter (Trader) can use 0.1% even though he is not registered with Export Promotion Council?
No, prior fulfilling of each and every conditions is required.
If merchant exporter itself manufacture goods and intend to export the said goods. whether this provision be applicable
we have sold the Goods to Merchant exporter under 0.1% Tax. We get the shipping bill and BL copy for export proof. How to file the GSTR 1 return?
What if exporter fail to export 90days of invoices issued by domestic supplier, is supplier liable to GST full 18% or 28% if exporter failed to export 90days.
It is advisable to seek an extension from the jurisdictional GST authority under which the registered recipient i.e exporter falls, in order to escape the wrath of non-fulfillment of the pre-conditions set out in the Notifications Nos: 40 and 41 dt 23-10-2017, and further inform the registered supplier of the submission of the application seeking an extension for exporting goods beyond ninety days prescribed period.

Then, in this case, the differential 17.9% GST along with interest has to be paid to the supplier. When we buy goods under LUT Bond at 0.1% GST, the merchant exporter gives an undertaking wherein it clearly states that in the event of non-compliance with the above, the merchant exporter is liable to pay the 17.9% difference and penalty.
Therefore, it is very important to check and counter-check the CHECK LIST, which the clearing agent files and which forms the basis of the shipping bill.
The CHA may forget to mention the supplier’s GSTN, tax invoice, and in such a case, the check list must be thoroughly checked because once the shipping bill is made, it cannot be amended except in exceptional circumstances. I hope this answers your question.
Merchant exporter can harass registered supplier by not giving shipping bill, in that case what is the liability on registered supplier? Will he be paying the GST amount? Earlier it was Form H.
