24. TAX METHODOLOGY

 Purpose

This tax methodology describes the methodology adopted to calculate Indian Goods and Services tax (GST’), Central Goods and Services Tax ('CGST'), State Goods and Services Tax (‘SGST’), Union Territory Goods and Services Tax (‘UTGST’) and Integrated Goods and Services Tax (‘IGST’), for sellers or merchants using tax calculation services.

 

Overview

GST is a unified tax levied on both goods and services. In the GST regime, both the Central and the State Governments will impose GST on the same transaction involving supply of goods and/ or services. Each taxable transaction could either attract (i) CGST and SGST/ UTGST or (ii) IGST. CGST and SGST/ UTGST will be levied on supply of goods and services within the State/ Union Territory (‘UT’) ( intra-State supply) and IGST will be levied on supply of goods and services between two States/ UT and on import ( inter-State supply).

 

Unlike in the indirect tax regime, where VAT/ CST is applicable on buying and selling of goods and service tax is applicable on provision of service, GST would be applicable on ‘supply’ of goods and services. The definition of ‘supply’ is wide and inter alia includes:

 

All forms of supply including sale, transfer, barter, lease, etc made for a consideration in the course or furtherance of business.

Import of services, whether or not for a consideration and whether or not in the course or furtherance of business.

GST is a consumption based tax. Therefore, GST of the State/ UT where the goods and services are actually consumed, will apply. While SGST needs to be paid State-wise, CGST and IGST have to be paid on a consolidated basis. However, the place of supply , the location where the goods and services are actually consumed, have to be disclosed.

In order to determine whether a supply is an inter-State supply (attracting IGST) or intra-State supply (attracting CGST and SGST/ UTGST), specific place of supply rules are formulated:

 

Supply of Goods:

Generally, for supply of goods, if the State/ UT from where goods originate and the State/ UT where they are delivered is same, then it qualifies as intra-State supply (subject to CGST plus SGST).

If the State/ UT from where the goods originate and the State/ UT where they are delivered are different, it should qualify as inter-State supply (subject to IGST).

Import of goods into India will be subject to Basic Customs Duty (‘BCD’) plus IGST. At the same time, export of goods outside India will be tax-free.

 

Supply of service:

There are two types of supply services:

LOCAL SUPPLY OF SERVICE: Generally, in case of a B2C transaction, the place of supply shall be the address of the recipient on records of the supplier or location of supplier in other cases. The place of supply is subject to certain exceptions such as services in relation to immovable property, event based services.

IMPORT AND EXPORT OF SERVICE: On import of services into India (B2B transaction, where service provider is located outside India), the service recipient will be liable to pay GST under the reverse charge mechanism. On the other hand, if the services qualify as export, the same will not be subject to GST.

Additionally, the service recipient may also be liable to pay GST under the reverse charge mechanism on certain specified services even if the provider of service is located in India (typically, referred as domestic reverse charge).

If the suppliers located outside India are providing Online Information and Database Access and Retrieval (‘OIDAR’) Service through Purely Natural's platform, then the overseas OIDAR service providers will be required to obtain GST registration in India and discharge the GST liability.

 

RATE OF GST

Goods

Goods are typically categorized under (5) bands of tax rates: Exempt, 5 percent, 12 percent, 18 percent and 28 percent depending on the Harmonised System of Nomenclature (‘HSN’) classification of the goods.

The seller will have to assign appropriate HSN classification of the goods while listing their product for sale along with the applicable PTC (paid-to-click).

 

Service

There are (5) standard rates prescribed for supply of service: Exempt, 5 percent, 12 percent, 18 percent and 28 percent. Further, in addition to GST, cess may also be levied on certain notified services. However, currently there are no services which have been notified on which cess will apply.

This tax calculation service provides functionality for calculating GST for goods shipped from fulfillment centers ('FC') located in India, goods sold by offshore sellers and services provided on Prakrititattva's platform, based on the parameters discussed above.    

 

This policy describes the support for calculating the applicable GST and related functions: 

        Determining the tax jurisdiction and tax type

        Determining the tax calculation selling price

        Time of supply and GST calculation                     

        Return of goods and services.                

 

DETERMINING TAX JURISDICTION AND TAX TYPE FOR GOODS

This requires information on transaction-related parameters to determine tax jurisdiction and tax type

(CGST and SGST/ UTGST or IGST).

These transaction- related information are:

1.    SHIP-FROM LOCATION            

The Ship-from location is the location from where the shipment originates i.e., the location from where the goods are actually shipped to the customers.

If the goods are delivered from a place outside India, it will be regarded as import of goods into India.

 

2.    SHIP-TO LOCATION                      

The ship-to location is the location to which shipment is destined, ie the destination State/ UT.

 

General note applicable to the tax location and tax type :

       GST being a consumption based tax, the GST rates of the State/ UT where the goods are actually consumed should apply.

       In certain transactions, bill-to location and ship-to location could be different. However, the bill-to location has no relevance; the levy of GST would depend on the ship-from and ship-to location only. Thus, even if the buyer and the FC are in the same State/ UT, a supply could be an inter-state supply if the movement of goods takes place from one State/ UT to another. Similarly, even if buyer and the FC are in different State/ UT, a supply could be an intra-state supply if the delivery location of goods is within the State/ UT.

       Seller-fulfilled products: Tax calculation services are provided for seller-fulfilled shipments based on the ship from state as declared by the seller in their Seller Central Account.

 

DETERMINING TAX JURISDICTION AND TAX TYPE FOR SERVICES

This requires information on transaction-related information parameters to determine tax jurisdiction and tax type (ie, CGST and SGST/ UTGST or IGST).

These transaction- related information are:

       Location of the supplier

       Location of the recipient

       Place of supply of service

 

GENERAL NOTE APPLICABLE TO THE TAX LOCATION AND TAX TYPE

       GST being a consumption based tax, in order to determine the State/ UT where the services are consumed, specific place of supply rules are formulated.

       According to the Indian laws, the services provided to customers located outside India would be regarded as export where the consideration is received in foreign currency. Hence, not subject to GST.

       In certain transactions, bill-to location and the location where the services are actually consumed may be different.

However, the bill-to location has no relevance; the levy of GST would depend on the location where the services are actually consumed (in terms of the place of supply rules).

1.      LOCATION OF THE SUPPLIER: For GST purposes, registered place of business of the supplier will be considered as the location of the supplier. If the services are supplied by a supplier located outside India, the services will be considered as an import of service into India.

2.      LOCATION OF SERVICE RECIPIENT: The location of the service recipient will be the address of the customer as available on the ordering details in your Seller Central account.

3.      PLACE OF SUPPLY OF SERVICE: The place of supply of service is typically the location of the service recipient. This rule may be subject to certain exceptions such as transportation of goods, event based services and training services. The place of supply of service will have to be determined on a case-to-case basis.

4.      TAX LOCATION AND TAX TYPE FOR SERVICES:

a)     Services where location of the supplier and the place of supply are in the same State/ UT : Services are subject to ‘CGST and SGST/ UTGST’ where location of supplier and place of supply are in the same State/ UT.

b)     Services where location of the supplier and place of supply are in the different State/ UT : Services are subject to IGST where location of supplier and place of supply are in the different States/ UT.

 

DETERMINING TAX ON THE SELLING PRICE FOR GOODS

The GST is typically payable on value of goods supplied, the selling price of the goods. Price variations and ancillary charges as described here under could be adjusted against the selling price.

 

PROMOTIONS:

The GST on the price of a goods should be reduced by the amount of price-based promotions applied to them. For instance, promotional discounts and trade discounts are reduced from the price of goods for the purpose of calculation of GST. The discount will be adjusted in the invoice itself. Post sale discounts will not be deductible for GST purposes unless such discount is agreed at or before the time of supply.

SHIPPING & HANDLING CHARGES: 

Shipping and handling charges will be considered as a part of selling price. In determining the GST the selling price, separately stated shipping and handling charges should be assigned to, or associated with, the individual items in a shipment. If a consolidated shipping and handling charge is made, it should be allocated by value or any other justifiable parameter and attributed to each item being invoiced/ shipped.

SHIPPING & HANDLING TAXABILITY OPTIONS:

Taxes on shipping and handling charges associated with individual items in a shipment should be calculated separately from the related individual items. By default, each shipping and handling charges should be assigned the same product taxability as its related item. This will generally result in shipping and handling charges associated with taxable items being taxed at the same rate as the taxable items, and shipping and handling charges associated with nontaxable items not being taxed. GIFT-WRAP CHARGES:

Gift wrap charges are generally treated as taxable because they are considered as a part of the selling price of an item. In determining the selling price, separately stated gift-wrap charges should be assigned to, or associated with, the individual items in a shipment as per the same principles adopted for shipping and handling charges.

GIFT-WRAP TAXABILITY OPTIONS: 

Taxes on gift-wrap charges associated with the individual items in a shipment are calculated separately from the related individual items. By default, each gift-wrap charges should be assigned the same product taxability as its related item. This will generally ensure that gift-wrap charges associated with taxable items being taxed at the same rate as the taxable items, and gift-wrap charges associated with non-taxable items are not taxed.

34. Return & Refund Policy

1.         HOW TO PROCESS A RETURN REQUEST?

As a seller, you can take different actions on a return request with the help of Manage Returns, which include:

             Authorize the request         

             Close the request                   

             Issue a refund     

             Contact the buyer                   

 

 

 

1. Authorize the request

An individual seller who opts for a manual authorization and a professional seller who receives an out-of-policy request has an option to review a request manually. In order to do this, follow the steps listed below:

Step 1: Login to your seller central account and select Orders > Manage returns.

Step 2: For authorizing a single-return request, choose the request that you wish to review.

Step 3: Upon doing step #2, you will be prompted to use the RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number, which is generated by Purely Natural or you will have to enter a custom RMA number. A buyer will see this RMA number on his or her return authorization slip, just under the return label.

If the return is under a manual authorization, you will be asked to select a return address. You can either use one of your saved addresses for returns or add a new address.

However, to modify your address, follow this: Go to Account Info and choose Return Address.

Step 4: To authorize various return requests simultaneously, choose the request that you would want to review. Next, from the page – Manage Returns – select Authorize all selected returns that you see in the dropdown menu.

In order to receive a return request email with a valid link to close, reply, or authorize, you can easily configure by choosing Settings > Return Settings and then, selecting the associated checkbox.

An individual seller & professional seller who receives an out-of-policy request also has the choice to authorize the return request automatically. In such a circumstance, Purely Natural issues the buyer with an unpaid label.

 

2. Close the request

You can close a return request right away if you:

             Plan to provide a refund without asking for the item’s return               

                 Decide not to accept the return (for instance, if the return request is outside the  Purely Natural policies)

                 Choose an appropriate reason to close the return request and give explanations to the customer. Once the return request is closed, Purely Natural sends the customer the message you have sent along with a closure reason.

  

On the other hand, a buyer can also close a return request. In that case, you (seller) will get an email notifying you about it.

 

3. Issue a refund

A refund can be issued:

       After the item has been returned

       If you are letting the buyer keep your product

However, if you want your product back from the buyer, Purely Natural encourages you to wait until you get it and then issue a refund.

Once you get your product back, Purely Natural expects you to process the refund within 48 hours. But if you don’t process the refund within this duration, Purely Natural has the liberty to refund the specific amount to the buyer and charge the same from your seller account.

Hence, to prevent a negative experience from the buyer, monitor your refund actively and make sure that the customer receives it on time.

 

4. Contact the buyer

You can send an email to the buyer anytime and discuss the issue. Rather than managing the return and issuing a refund, it is always a good idea to resolve the issue.

2.      Buyers are not obligated to provide additional information to return an order unless otherwise noted in the category specific policy.

3.      In case of a product mismatch or expired product, Seller will need to replace the product at no extra cost. If a replacement is not possible, Seller will process a refund on customer order in accordance with Purely Natural Refund Policy.

4.      In case of any missing or damaged parts, Seller will send a replacement part at no extra cost. In case shipping of the missing part is not possible, customers can either opt for a part refund for the missing part or issue a replacement at no extra cost. If a replacement is not possible, Seller will process a refund on customer order in accordance with Purely Natural Refund Policy.

5.      In the above cases, even after a replacement, if a customer again receives a damaged product, a customer can claim a refund and Seller will need to process a refund on customer order in accordance with Purely Natural Refund Policy. Seller must accept returns using their own network from all PIN codes he/she has configured to deliver for all the above products.

6.      In case if the replacement request is placed by the buyer and the seller does not have the exact same product in stock, the seller will provide a refund.

7.      Sellers must mark the products as "non-returnable" on the product detail page if the particular product cannot be returned.

  

8.      WHAT TO DO BEFORE ISSUING A REFUND?

When a buyer requests for a refund, there are three things Purely Natural advises you to do prior processing the refund:

Once you authorize the return request, wait until you receive the shipment from the buyer before issuing a refund. You can even let the buyer keep or discard the product even if you issue a refund. However, this is your choice.

If the buyer gives you the product damaged, or perhaps, in a condition, which is different from what you sent initially, you have the choice to process a “partial refund.” Now, if you choose to go with a partial refund, it is important to inform the buyer about the same in prior to avoid further misunderstandings.

If you have listed and described the item correctly, and yet the buyer just doesn’t want it any more, you can choose to refund the total amount paid by the buyer after deducting payment gateway charges and the shipping cost. This is an advantage for sellers.

 

 

9.         HOW TO PROTECT FROM PURELY NATURAL RETURN SCAMMERS?

In order to defend themselves from buyers with bad or shady intentions, a few sellers take videos or photos of themselves, especially expensive products before shipping. This serves as evidence to prove that they shipped the product properly if a buyer claims that he/she hasn’t received the order.

Of course, these safeguards take some more time off of your existing heavy workload. However, these protections can help you save money as well as keep your name intact even if a buyer tries to scam you.

Besides these, here are some more safety measures to take in order to avoid further run-ins with scammers: 

             Make sure that you get signature on all the packages that you send                

             Get insurance on packages that contain expensive items ●            Use a tracked delivery system      

  

Purely Natural also advises every third-party seller to keep the following things in mind to protect themselves from shady buyers:

1. Answer to customers’ emails

Though Purely Natural stresses the buyer to work and solve the issues with the buyer, there are times when a few claims happen to be against top-performing sellers. This mainly has to do with sellers failing to reply to the customers’ messages in a given timeframe. Hence, as a seller, make sure that you respond to your customers on time.

 

2. Proactive refunding

A seller can avoid the claim if he or she investigates about the return promptly with the buyer. If the reason is found to be appropriate, the refund can be avoided. Whenever an issue is handled this way, a buyer is less likely to file a claim against you.

3. Conscientious shipping

Trackable shipment methods, signature-required approach, and careful packaging can do a great deed in preventing claims for non-receipt and damaged items. The need to provide a valid tracking number for 95% of the shipments and shipping only to addresses that Purely Natural provides will help in limiting your liability.

4. Accurate product images and descriptions

Giving correct images and description of a product eliminates misunderstandings and unwanted issues of what a buyer is literally expecting to get. Make sure that all your offers match with the right address. It is not appropriate to list the product against some other edition and explain it within the product description. If a product listing is published incorrectly, the seller will be completely responsible for the claim.

5. Keep the buyers informed

Even though Purely Natural handles order & shipping notifications, it is still important to work with the buyers directly to resolve their issues and questions about the product.

6. Cancel any out-of-stock order promptly

If an item goes out-of-stock, it is your responsibility as a seller to e-mail about it to the buyer so that they don’t expect a package. Also, cancel the order if you haven’t done so.

Dealing with a Purely Natural Return becomes easier if you take the precautions mentioned above seriously, especially before shipping.
