when to levy GST on gift vouchers and gift cards

The Tamil Nadu appellate authority for advance rulings (AAAR) has cleared the confusion over taxability of vouchers such as Amazon gift cards, Shoppers Stop vouchers, Zara Vouchers etc. under the goods and services tax (GST) system.

It ruled that GST will be levied on the underlying goods and services at the time of redemption of vouchers, Abhishek Jain, partner at EY, said.

As such, GST would be imposed on goods and services bought through vouchers.

Earlier, authority for advance rulings (AAR) of the state had ordered that the supply of voucher itself will be taxable at varied rates depending on whether it paper based or magnetic strip based. The former will attract 12 per cent and the latter 18 per cent GST, it had ruled.

Hindu nationalist groups in US got $833,000 in COVID relief fund:- NGO FUnding

The five groups in question are Vishwa Hindu Parishad of America (VHPA), Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation, Infinity Foundation, Sewa International, and the Hindu American Foundation (HAF). All these organizations have ties with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

VHPA received more than $150,000 under PPP and $21,430 under EIDLA and DAL programs. Its Indian counterpart, VHP was categorized as a religious militant organization by the CIA in 2018.

Although the VHPA claims to be a separate legal entity from the VHP, its website mentions that the organizations share the “same values and ideals”.

Ekal Vidyalaya Foundation obtained a direct pay of $7,000 and a loan of $64,462 under PPP.

The Foundation runs a network of schools for children from Adivasi and rural communities across India, and has been accused of promoting hatred for minorities among children.

Infinity Foundation received $51,872 in US federal funds in the wake of the pandemic, according to SBA data.

This foundation provides grants to universities and researchers to allow the spread of Hindu nationalism in academic spaces.

Sewa International received a sum of $150,621 in COVID relief.

Sewa International organization funds a lot of RSS projects across India. In fact, some old literature suggests that Sewa International’s address was the same as RSS’s headquarters in Delhi.

The Hindu American Foundation received what can be said as the lion’s share of federal funds among the five organizations- a whopping amount of $378,064 in PPP loans and another $10,000 in EIDLA.

Burger King IPO opens today: Should you buy this Whopper? Check bid price, lot size, details

Burger King and its promoters are looking to raise Rs 810 crore in the IPO through a combination of a fresh issue and an Offer For Sale.

Burger King India’s IPO will open for subscription today.

The fast-food major is just a little over half-a-decade old, and is one of the fastest growing quick service restaurant (QSR) chains in the country. Burger King and its promoters are looking to raise Rs 810 crore in the IPO through a combination of a fresh issue and an Offer For Sale (OFS). Burger King began operating in India in the financial year 2015, and has since seen rapid expansion to now owning 261 restaurants across the country.

Financially, the company is still in the rudimentary stages and has not managed to turn profitable so far. However, the rapid expansion has helped increase total income of Burger King 48.4% CAGR between financial year 2017 and 2020. “Same-store-sales growth (SSSG) stood at 12.2% and 29.2%, respectively, in fiscal year 2018 and fiscal year 2019, which also helped in achieving strong revenue growth in the past two years.

Should you subscribe?

Although the company is still not making profits, the rapid expansion that it plans could help the firm. “Considering Covid-19 as an exceptional phase for the sector, we feel that with positive advancement in vaccine development and considerable relaxation in the economic activities, it is expected to report improved financials over the period.said Choice Broking while advising investors to subscribe to the issue.

Government puts off penalty provision for not using QR codes on GST invoices

The provision was to penalise businesses not using QR codes on their invoices from December 1 but now it would come into force from April 1.

However, the penalty waiver is contingent on businesses using QR codes from the start of the next fiscal year.

The move is aimed at promoting digital payment in business to customer (B2C) transactions through QR code and enabling GST payment on UPI — a digital retail payment option.
