Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia on Friday cautioned mobile phone users and said that no Goods and Service Tax can be charged on the bills generated before June 30, ANI reported. “If vendor is paying manufacturers in July and invoices are created in June then those taxes will apply which were existing in pre-GST regime,” Adhia said. “No GST on credit card and mobile bills generated before June 30, even if the due date in July,” Adhia added. This is not the first time that Adhia has issued such clarifications on Twitter. The Revenue Secretary had earlier issued a seven-point ‘myth-buster’ taking on the seven top speculations which were making rounds among the common masses. Adhia, in first ‘myth’, sought to dispel concerns that if a person makes payment of utility bills by credit cards, the he/she will be paying GST twice. “This is completely untrue. Please do not recirculate such message without checking it with authority,” Adhia said.
In the second clarification, Adhia clarified confusions regarding receipt generation and said invoices need not be generated by internet and can be generated manually also. Another rumour was regarding access to the Internet. Adhia clarified that Internet would be needed only while filing the monthly return of GST. He also told entrepreneurs that provisional ID will be a business holders final GSTIN number. A lot of dealers were confused about what to do if their items were excluded earlier. “You can continue doing business and get registered within 30 days,” Adhia told such people. Adhia had also clarified if there are three returns per month to be filed. “There is only 1 return with 3 parts, out of which first part filed by the dealer and two other parts auto-populated by computer,” Adhia had said.
