Must a Composition Dealer maintain detailed records?

No, a dealer registered under composition scheme is not required to maintain detailed records as in the case of a normal taxpayer.

Can I opt for Composition Scheme in one year and regular in another?

Yes, this is possible. You can opt to switch between the Composition Scheme and the normal scheme based on your turnover. However, you will have to keep in mind that this will affect the way you issue invoices and file your returns.

The declaration of change can be done using Form GST-CMP 02. For the current financial year, the window for change has been extended until March 31st, 2018. Let’s assume a taxpayer who was registered under the normal scheme from July onwards decides to opt for the Composition Scheme from November. For the period of July-October 2017, the taxpayer will have to file returns as per the rules for normal taxpayers. In this example composition Scheme will apply from November 1st; and the taxpayer will have to follow all the rules of the Composition Scheme like issuing a Bill of Supply instead of a normal invoice, putting up a sign outside their premises saying that they are part of the Composition Scheme and are not eligible for charging GST on sales etc.

Can I break up my businesses and opt for Composition Scheme for all of them separately?

Under GST, each business is given a specific identification number called the GSTIN. The GSTIN is associated with the PAN of the business or the business owner. As long as all your businesses are associated with a single PAN, you can choose only one of the schemes for all your businesses – regular or composition scheme. However, if you have businesses with different PANs, then you can opt for different schemes for all of them depending on the turnover of each business.

Is it true that Composition Dealers can offer the same product at a lower price?

Yes, since composition dealers cannot charge GST on their sales, so the end consumer pays less money than usual. Composition dealers can also buy from unregistered dealers in order to keep their costs low.
