GOOD/SERVICE ELIGIBLE FOR VAT TAX:

  • About 270 items including drugs and medicines, all agricultural and industrial inputs, capital goods and declared goods would attract four per cent VAT in India.


  • The remaining items would attract 12.5 per cent VAT. Precious metals like gold and bullion would be taxed at one per cent.

  • Lower Rate of 4% for Industrial Inputs and Raw Material

  • Higher Rate of 20% on Non-essential commodities (Petroleum products, Lottery tickets, Liquor.) at discretion of State Government.

  • Three items - sugar, textile and tobacco - covered under Additional Excise Duties, will not be under VAT regime for one year but the existing arrangement would continue.

  • The Indian VAT panel relaxed the threshold limit for traders coming under VAT regime from Rs 5-50 lakh of turnover from the previous stance of Rs 5-40 lakh.



STATE VAT:
  • Empowered Committee of state Finance ministers would be the final authority on the model VAT law – State Government cannot deviate.

  • Central Sales Tax will be phased out in stages – from 4% to 2% to Nil.

  • Sales Tax Incentives will be phased out

  • States will get compensation for loss of revenue from central Government.
