FAQ-6 ( VAT / CST ):

How to record Sales against Form E1 in Tally.ERP 9?



According to Section 6(2) of CST Act, the first inter-state sale is taxable and subsequent sale during movement of goods by transfer of documents of title to goods is exempt from tax, if the subsequent sale is made to a registered dealer.


Example: Assume ABC Company from Karnataka despatches goods to Yukta Traders of Tamil Nadu and raises an invoice on Prerana Traders in Maharashtra. National Traders charges 2% CST and remits the same in Karnataka. During movement of goods, Prerana Traders sells the goods to Yukta Traders in Tamil Nadu. Yukta Traders takes possession of goods and the 'movement of goods’ comes to an end.


The sale from Prerana Traders to Yukta Traders is by way of transfer of documents of title to goods. In the above case, ABC Company will receive declaration in ‘C’ Form from Prerana Traders and will issue declaration in ‘E1’ form to Prerana Traders. Subsequently, Prerana Traders will receive declaration in ‘C’ Form from Yukta Traders and issue declaration in ‘E2’ form which completes the cycle. It is important to note that, if this chain is broken CST will be payable.
