Accounting Treatment of GST in India

Before coming of GST Law 2016, as business persons, we were focused to do accounting treatment of Excise, VAT and service tax separately. Now, all these three tax have merged into one indirect taxation system. So, we need to keep accounting records for different tax separately. We will now keep consolidated accounting information and we are ready to show how much our total tax liability of goods and services which we have provided to others which we already received from our customers.

Remember Don't 

Some accountants are old and after coming GST, they have to leave the following habit of recording.

1. Don't pass the entry of Service tax. Don't open service tax account. Don't show service tax in bill register, receipt register, debit/credit notes register, Cenvat credit register. If you have received service tax from customer, you have to pass the GST entry and open GST account.

2. Don't pass Excise entries. Don't record excise duty through daily stock account register of excisable goods, register of receipt and issue of raw material, invoice book and job work register. Only pass the GST entries and keep GST record for material supplies or supplies inward.

3. Don't pass the VAT entries in the form of input VAT and Output VAT for buying and selling of Goods. Don't make record of purchase and Sales with VAT. Only GST will be recorded with purchase and sales.
