VAT paid on Capital Items not allowed as Input for VAT (AP VAT)

So, you record the asset with total Cost, i.e Rs 8,925/- and depreciate accordingly

Entry for the Same

Printer/ Computer Peripherals A/c   Dr 8,925

To Bank A/c                                                                   Cr 8925

Following entry is to be passed

Printer A/c                           Dr.          8500

Input VAT A/c                      Dr.            425

     To M/s XYZ A/c (Creditor)                         8925

(Being Printer purchased from M/s XYZ)

 

Assuming that the Printer is purchased on 30th June. Hence full depreciation @ 60% available.

 

Following is the Journal Entry for Depreciation

Depreciation A/c  [8500 x 60%]             Dr.     5100

      To Printer A/c                                                               5100

(Being Depreciation provided @ 60%)

 

Note : The Input VAT on Printer cannot be claimed full. As per Rule 53 of MVAT, the Input VAT is subject to Retention of 3% ie only Rs. 412.25/- is available for set-off.

Generally VAT cannot be claimed on items which do not form part of the manufacturing process. If the printer is used in the manufacturing process then you can claim the input vat.

In such a case it becomes plant and machinery instead of being a part of the computer.

The above entries are correct but the context must be understood properly before passing the entries.

Not agreed with Praveen & Devender -Input is allowed on Capital Goods i.e the assets which are used in the manufacturing process of goods, which concern is going to sale to customer & printer is included in office  equipments & theregore not  eligible for  VAT Input. So you have to capitalise whole Rs. 8925/- into Fixed  Assets and then  claim depreciation accordingly.

Agree with neeraj and prakash.. printer should be capitalised with full amount i.e. 8925/-..

Its depending on whether you are registered under VAT or not, if registered input VAT can be taken and balance will be capitalised (8,500/-) else full amount including VAT will be capitalised (8,925/-)

Printer is capitalized at full value with vat & depreciation can be claimed on full value (also consider 180 days concept)

Roshan A (Chartered Accountant) (458 Points)

The entire amount including VAT is to Capitalised and Depreciation should be provided accordingly
