(iv) The amount of tax (under CS?) which the retailer pays to the State

Government.

It is a case of intra-state transaction of goods and services.

SGST = CGST = ½ GST

Given:

(i) The amount inclusive of tax (under GST) which the wholesaler pays for the article.

It is given that, Marked price of an article by the manufacturer = ₹5000

Discount given by manufacturer = 25% of ₹5000

= (25/100) × 5000

= ₹1250

CP of article for wholesaler = ₹5000 - ₹1250 = ₹3750

Discount given by wholesaler to retailer = 15% of ₹5000

= (15/100) × 5000

= ₹750

CP of article for retailer = ₹5000 - ₹750 = ₹4250

CP of article for consumer without tax = ₹5000

Rate of GST = 12%

Amount of GST paid by wholesaler = 12% of ₹3750

= (12/100) × 3750

= ₹450

The amount inclusive of tax (under GST) which the wholesaler pays for the article =

₹3750 + ₹450 = ₹4200

(ii) The amount inclusive of tax (under GST) which the retailer pays for the article.

Amount of GST paid by retailer = 12% of ₹4250

= (12/100) × 4250

= ₹510

The amount inclusive of tax (under GST) which the retailer pays for the article =

₹4250 + ₹510 = ₹4760

(iii) The amount of tax (under GST) which the wholesaler pays to the Central

Government.

Amount of GST paid by wholesaler to manufacturer,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹3750

= (6/100) × 3750

= ₹225

Amount of GST paid by retailer to wholesaler,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹4250

= (6/100) × 4250

= ₹255

The amount of tax (under GST) which the wholesaler pays to the Central Government =

₹255 - ₹225 = ₹30

(iv) The amount of tax (under CS?) which the retailer pays to the State Government.

Amount of GST paid by retailer to wholesaler,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹4250

= (6/100) × 4250

= ₹255

Amount of GST collected by retailer,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹5000

= (6/100) × 5000

= ₹300

The amount of tax (under CS?) which the retailer pays to the State Government =₹300 - ₹255 = ₹45
