A person availing composition scheme during a financial year crosses the turnover of Rs. 75 Lakhs / Rs. 50 Lakhs during the course of the year i.e. say, he crosses the turnover of Rs. 75 Lakhs/Rs. 50 Lakhs in December? Will he be allowed to pay tax under composition scheme for the remainder of the year i.e. till 31st March?

No. The option to pay tax under composition scheme shall lapse from the day on which his aggregate turnover during the financial year exceeds Rs. 75 Lakhs/ 50 Lakhs. Once he crosses the threshold, he shall file an intimation for withdrawal from the scheme in FORM GST CMP-04 within seven days of the occurrence of such event. He shall also furnish a statement in FORM GST ITC-01 containing details of the stock of inputs and capital goods as per the rules in this regard. This would help him join the input tax credit chain and avail credit of tax that he has paid on his inputs/goods lying in stock on the day he crosses over.
