A client is following the set off as follows :-

Sales Rs. 10,00,000/- Add: WCT at 8 %  = 80,000/- total sales invoice Rs. 10,80,000/-

Purchases Rs. 4,00,000 plus 4 % vat  = 16000 = 4,16,000/-, Purchases Rs. 2,00,000 plus 12.5 vat  = 25000 = 225000/-

he pays vat as RS. ( 80000- 64%(16000+25000)) = 26240/- = 53760/-

this is under which VAT act.

normally where in a works contract there is a composition scheme, the set off is not allowed.

where there is no composite vat rate and it is specifically on each material then the set off is allowed.

clear details required

Of course, in one State i.e., Maharashtra, set-off is available with certain restrictions, even the dealer in composition.

Hi Rajesh,

In case of Works Contract wherein 8% tax is collected on sales, only 16/25 i.e. 64% of total input VAT credit is available. Hence what your client is doing is right. What is the exact nature of services he is providing? Is he doing repairs maintenance job or what??

Hi Rajesh

When dealer is opting for composition scheme then his total Input Credit ( setoff)  is reduced by 36%  your clients is reducing his set off by 36% which is right.

The system followed by your clients is correct.

When dealer is not opting for composition scheme he is eligible for 100% set off
