Impact on Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet

All tax accounts are not in the nature of direct/indirect incomes or expenses, therefore there will be no impact on the Profit and Loss account. However if there is any GST paid for which input tax credit is not allowed then it should be booked as expense and thus reducing the profit. (In case payment is for an expense)

The tax liability or positive input tax credit is to be shown as liability or asset in the balance sheet. Fixed assets on which input tax credit is allowed and taken are to be shown as cost excluding gst.

Accounting Entries by Composition Dealer

Persons registered under composition scheme are not allowed to take input tax credit of tax paid and also not to charge gst from the customer. They also can not make inter state sales.

Therefore they are not required to maintain accounts for input and output gst. They have to make very simple entries as follows

  1. On sale of goods Cash A/c Dr  5,000 To Sale A/c        5,000

  2. On Purchase of goods Purchase A/c Dr 4,000 To Cash A/c              4,000

  3. On purchase of Capital asset Furniture A/c Dr   1,500 To   Cash A/c              1,500

  4. On payment of Composition Fees Composition Fees A/c Dr     25 To Bank A/c                                25

Impact on Profit and Loss Account and Balance Sheet

Composition fees is an expense and thus show as  indirect expense in profit and loss account. There will be no impact on the Balance Sheet. All capital assets are shown at Cost including GST.

GAAP is applicable mandatorily on GST. So, all principles following revenue recognition etc. will be applicable.

Accounting Entries for Transactions under Reverse Charge

At time of purchasing such goods/ services:

Purchase A/c Dr Input SGST A/c Dr Input CGST Ac Dr To Creditor A/c To Output SGST RCM A/c To Output CGST RCM A/c

In case of purchase of asset or expense, specific account will be debited. Output SGST RCM A/c  is used in place of normal Output SGST A/c to differentiate both taxes as taxes under RCM can not be adjusted against input taxes and has to be paid in cash.

At time of payment of gst

Output SGST RCM A/c Output CGST RCM A/c To Cash/Bank A/c
