NEW DELHI: In lieu of the 23rd meeting of the Goods and Services Council in Guwahati starting Thursday, the ASSOCHAM recommended examining the impact of the taxation scheme on exports in a bid to help exporters receive their tax refunds without any further delay.

Further, the chamber also urged easing rules for the GST administration on exports to maintain the growth momentum.

ASSOCHAM listed several issues such as refund of GST paid on capital goods, export obligations, transfer of drawback scrips and early clearances of their dues on account of tax refunds for resolution by the GST Council and the Finance Ministry.

"The growth in exports has picked up, providing momentum which must be maintained by making our goods competitive. We should fully tap the uptick in the global economy to our advantage. It is pertinent to ensure that our exporters remain fully funded and do not face any working capital shortage," it said.

As per section 16 of the IGST Act, the exporters have an option not to pay any IGST on the exports and claim refund of the GST paid on procurement of inputs and input services. However, no refund is available for GST paid on the capital goods per section 54(8) (a) of the CGST Act. Since, in case of exporters, there is no output GST liability, this results in blockage of credit of GST paid on capital goods, impacting the financial health of the exporters.

Also in the GST regime, for non-fulfilment of export obligation on imports made during pre-GST regime, while the importer is required to repay the customs duty saved, including CVD and SAD component, its credit is not available in absence of enabling provisions under GST law. This results in such CVD and SAD component becoming a cost to such exporters in GST regime.

In the pre-GST regime, scrips under the Merchandise Exports from India Scheme (MEIS) and Service Exports from India Scheme (SEIS) were allowed to be used to pay excise duty/service tax on the procurements. However, similar facility is not available under GST law, and the MIES and SEIS scrips can be used only for making payment of the basic customs duty. Due to such restriction, the exporters are not able to fully derive the benefits under these schemes and this impacts their financial health, the chamber noted.

It also said significant amount of refunds pertaining to pre-GST period have not yet to be granted to the assesses. The refunds are stuck either due to delay in processing of the refunds or in the litigations relating to eligibility/procedural aspects for refund claim. This has caused significant amount of funds blockage for the exporters, the chamber opined.

On a related note, the two-day meeting of the GST Council is scheduled to begin today. While today's meeting is among the officials, Friday's session will be chaired by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.

Reports suggest that the council is likely to take up the issue of benami properties and inclusion of real estate under the GST ambit during the meeting. The council is also expected to review some items under the 28 percent tax slab, along with a review of slashing tax rates on restaurants and proposals on extended liberalisation of SMEs.
