Impact of GST on Wholesalers and Retailers

GST Rules for Wholesalers & Retailers

In the current indirect tax regime, retailers and wholesalers could evade taxes as there is no mechanism by which actual transactions can be tracked. Hence, most transactions are done in black, where there is no invoice that is issued to the buyer, and in their books no entry is posted for such sales.
With the new GST rules on the wholesale and retail industry, every invoice with taxable supply has to be uploaded on the GSTN portal and needs to be accepted by the buyer, retailers and wholesalers, thereby reducing tax evasion.

GST Calculation Formula

Businesses, wholesalers and retailers can calculate their GST liability easily by using the below GST formula. Alternatively, with the help of a GST calculator, computation becomes even more easier and quicker.

  • Where GST is excluded:
    GST Amount = (Value of supply * GST%)/100
    Price to be charged = Value of supply + GST Amount

  • Where GST is included in the value of supply:
    GST Amount = Value of supply – [Value of supply x {100/(100+GST%)}]
