CBIC has notified that the provisions relating to Reverse Charge Mechanism (RCM) under GST, i.e. under Section 9(4) of the CGST Act, 2017, Section 5(4) of the IGST Act, 2017 and Section 7(4) of the UTGST Act, 2017 have been further Deferred/ Suspended by Govt. by 1 year, i.e. from 30/09/2018 to 30/09/2019. Earlier, the CBEC/ CBIC had notified on 13/10/2017, 23/03/2018 and 29/06/2018 that implementation of RCM under GST has been deferred upto 31/03/2018, 30/06/ 2018 and 30/09/2018 respectively.
|Still there is ‘NO’ change in RCM provisions u/s 9(4): CBIC Rescinds RCM Exemption on Purchases from Unregistered Dealers upto Rs. 5,000|
It may be noted that the GST Council has recommended in it’s 28th Meeting held at New Delhi on 21/07/2018 to defer the provisions relating to Reverse Charge Mechanism (RCM) under GST for further one year upto 30/09/2019. Also GST Council has recommended to restrict the scope of provisions relating to RCM under GST to supply of specified goods only.
Further, it may be noted that there is no change on reverse charge provisions under Section 9(3) of CGST/ SGST Acts, Section 7(3) of UTGST Act and Section 5(3) of the IGST Act, relating to GTA, Legal Services provided by an Advocate, etc. and for that reason only it’s called to be a partial suspension of RCM.
This partial suspension of RCM is basically meant for convenience of large taxpayers and survival of unregistered taxpayers. It will provide an opportunity to such taxpayers with more time to be familiar with the compliance requirements. Meanwhile the Government will also be able to streamline the relevant procedures. In fact large/ registered businesses were reluctant to make compliance/ pay tax on behalf of small/ unregistered businesses and they were avoiding to do business with them. This will benefit small businesses and substantially reduce compliance costs.
