Every dealer whose taxable turnover in the preceding year is Two hundred crores of rupees and above shall file return on or before 12 th of succeeding month along with statement of purchases and sales effected by him during the month.
Here, the meaning of “taxable turnover” , whether it represents VAT sales only or includes CST sales, export sales also ?
Kindly clarify with reference to relevant Section / Clarification /Circular .
Thanks & Regrads
As per Section 2(38) of the TNVAT act, “taxable turnover” means the turnover on which a dealer shall be liable to pay tax as determined after making such deductions from his total turnover and in such manneer as may be prescribed”.
As per section 2(40) of the TNVAT act, “total turnover” means the aggregate turnover in all goods of a dealer at all places of business in the state, whether or not, the whole or any portion of such turnover is liable to tax”
Prima facie, from the above, we can construe as follows :-
1) The term “total turnover” means the turnover at all places “IN THE STATE” only.
2) In view of the above, i am of the opinion that it will include only VAT sales.
Any different interpretations, please share….
thanks & regards
Thank you very much for your kind reply. I am convinced with the reasoning.
