My dear fellow exporters,

The premium on the MEIS scrips is going to drop as sale of scrips will attract 12% GST. MEIS falls under heading 4907 which attracts 12 per cent GST according to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) on the GST published by Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC).

MEIS is nothing but reimbursement of Customs and Excise Duty on inputs paid by exporters. Exporters earn duty credits through the form of scrips at fixed rates of 2 per cent, 3 per cent, and 5 per cent, depending upon the product and country. The earned scrips can be freely transferred to others or sold.  It is neither a good nor a service.

HSN 4907 relates to financial securities such as shares and bond certificates, and bank notes, cheques, forms, etc. MEIS cannot be compared with these items. It is entirely a different document which can be encashed only by Customs Dept.  If we pay Customs Duty by cheque or cash then, we don’t incur any GST.  Hence, there is no reason why GST should be charged on transfer of MEIS.  

On behalf of EEPC India, we are taking up this issue with the GST Council considering its importance and probable implications.

Thai Business Opportunity in India

Krungthep Turakij | July 26, 2017

Meena Konkanwit, a professional diplomat at the Royal Thai Consulate-General in Mumbai presents this article about business opportunities for Thai businesspeople in the Indian states of Maharashtra and Gujarat states now that the new Goods and Services Tax system is in effect. It has been quite difficult for foreign investors to invest in India due to a variety of obstacles including a complicated tax system and corruption. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has not ignored the issues and has been trying to regain confidence from foreign investors and trying to enhance India’s competitiveness in order to become the world’s manufacturing hub. India has issued various policies i.e. Make in India, Buy in India, New India, Skill India, Smart City. The new Goods and Services Tax (GST) has been in effect since 1st July 2017. The GST was implemented under the slogan of ‘One Nation, One Tax’ and many people believe that it will help to push the growth of India by 1%-2% and increase transparency in the tax system. Thai entrepreneurs such as ITD Cementation, Srithai Superware, Vee Rubber, CPF and Dutch Mill, etc. have invested in Maharashtra and Gujarat. The new GST will become the main mechanism to support the business operations of these companies. The opportunities for the Thai private sector are in business sectors such as automobile parts, consumer products, processed food, logistics and warehousing. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is trying to fully facilitate trade and investment in India and Thai entrepreneurs should not overlook these opportunities.
