INPUTS FROM RAKESH REDDY, DIRECTOR OF APARNA CONSTRUCTIONS & ESTATES, ON IMPLEMENTATION OF GST
By The Property Times, Writer, The Property Times
Bengaluru, July 27, 2017: One of the longest awaited tax reforms, GST, is slated to come into effect from 1st July 2017. This will subsume a whole host of indirect taxes such as excise duty, VAT/CST, service tax etc. The GST council has brought real estate under the GST ambit partially through the works contract and will be taxed at 12% under GST. Currently, the end user or home buyer pays taxes anywhere between 9-11% including service tax and VAT and excluding stamp duty. So the net impact on the homebuyer may be neutral or may go up marginally. However, if there is no abatement of land cost, which currently is not yet clear under the GST regime, the cost to the home buyers may go up.
Also, with the exemption of service tax on affordable housing not being continued under GST, the prices in this segment may also go up marginally.”
