Composition scheme for works contract is simpler option for those Contractors who cannot maintain the proper Accounts, Record of the material and other portion in their contracts. The contractee / customer prefers this option as small amount of Composition Tax 2% / 4% is payable to the Contractor instead of 12.5%/14.5% VAT payable in legal options.
under the “Composition” option, the Contractor has to pay Composition Tax (VAT) on the total Contract value / price, No deduction of labour is available in this option. Similarly, No VAT set off / Credit is available on the purchases of inputs to the Contractors and the same is not available to the Contractees also.
The Rates of Composition Tax differ from state to state. Generally it is 2% (for civil contracts) @ 4% for other Contracts.
