IPOs are all the rage in the share markets these days. With new companies listing by the day, all with promises of superior returns.

Moving on to news from the GST space. According to an article in a leading financial daily, the government has already collected over Rs 420 billion as taxes so far in the first monthly filing under the new Goods and Services Tax (GST) regime.

The revenues from the new regime are expected to swell further as the filing cycle closes this later this week.

From the total revenue, over Rs 150 billion came in through the Integrated-GST, which is levied on the state movement of goods. While another Rs 50 billion came in through the way of cess on demerit goods like cars and tobacco. The remaining Rs 220 billion came in through the Central and State GST, which would be split equally between the central and state governments.

Reportedly, so far around 1 million tax payers have filed returns under the GST regime and a further 2 million have logged in and saved return forms.

GST unifies more than a dozen central and state levies including excise duty, service tax and VAT, and the revenue generated is to be split equally between the Centre and states.

In July last year, Rs 317 billion of excise duty was collected and Rs 196 billion of service tax.

A total of 6 million businesses are expected to file returns and pay taxes for July.

In our view, GST is a complicated topic, the exact implications of which will be obvious over next few years. Our colleague Vivek Kaul has studied the finer aspects of the GST and predicted what could go right and wrong.
