Input Tax Credit scams continue in GST
The Govt is behind on catching miscreants and must figure out a better way to track down input tax credit frauds.
One of the popular ways of generating fake invoices is setting up of fake companies to which businesses issue invoices for sales or by issuing invoices to companies within the group or known persons for sales. Issuing invoices allows them to claim input tax credit.
Companies have to file annual returns only by June 30, 2019 which then gets extended to November every year and these are likely to be taken up for scrutiny only by 2020 or 2021.
By then, many of these companies would have shut down or vanished.

All should be caught and recover all money with big fine.
Fear of punishment only help to stop illegal activity. more

The aim of input tax credit was to ensure more and more traders register under GST. However government under estimated the ingenuity of businessmen. Therefore the solution is to remove input tax credit and reduce GST rates to ensure the end consumer is required to pay a reasonable amount of GST.
To give an example if GST rate on Cement is 5% and GST rate on a residential flat in a building with OC is 5% then the total GST impact for a consumer will be 10%. more
