Composition Dealer and Composition Scheme

               An Assessee who falls under the Composition Scheme and is required to comply with all the conditions mentioned therewith, is known as a Composition dealer. Such a dealer is required to comply with the rules and regulations framed by the GST Council for Composition Scheme.

Composition Scheme is a simple and easy scheme under GST for taxpayers. Small taxpayers can get rid of tedious GST formalities and pay GST at a fixed rate of turnover.

Any tax payer, whose turnover is less then INR 1.5 Crore, in Rest of India, and less then INR 75 Lakhs in Special Category States (North Eastern States and Himachal Pradesh), can opt for the composition scheme under GST. The point to be noted is that the GST composition scheme limit is based on the turnover of all businesses which are registered with the same PAN, and thus all businesses under the same PAN can either be registered regular dealers or can be composition dealers – not a combination of both.

A business will need to comply with the following rules, as per the composition scheme under GST:

  1. No Input Tax Credit can be claimed
