Benefits of GST Composition Scheme for traders and manufacturers
Less compliance burden
A normal taxpayer is required to file at least 37 returns a year under GST- 3 returns every month & 1 annual return. If he fails to comply, he would be subjected to the penalty.

- 1st quarter- July 18
- 2nd quarter- 2nd October IT IS 18TH OCTOBER
- 3rd quarter- January 18
- 4th quarter- April 18.
Lower tax liability
Traders and manufacturers who will enroll into Composite Scheme will also benefit from a nominal tax rate. It would be-
- 1 (1cgst+1sgst = 2)percent for manufacturers
- 5 (2.5+2.5 =5)percent for restaurants
- 5 (0.5+0.5 = 1)percent for the other suppliers under the Composition Scheme
Let’s discuss the situation with an example:
Say we have two taxpayers- Mr. A (normal taxpayer) and Mr. B (taxpayer under Composition Scheme). Both of them have incurred a total sale value of Rs. 118000. Now, when it comes to Net GST liability, Mr. A would have to pay Rs. 6300 while Mr. B would pay a far lesser Rs. 2314.
