WHAT IS VALUE ADDED TAX?
Value Added Tax is a broad-based commodity tax that is levied at multiple stages of production. The concept is akin to excise duty paid by the manufacturer who, in turn,claims a credit on input taxes paid. Excise duty is on manufacture, while VAT is on saleand both work in the same manner, according to the white paper on VAT released byfinance minister Chidambaram. The document was drawn up after all states, barring UP,were prepared to implement VAT from April. It is usually intended to be a tax onconsumption, hence the provision of a mechanism enabling producers to offset the taxthey have paid on their inputs against that charged on their sales of goods and services.Under VAT revenue is collected throughout the production process without distortingany production decisions.
WHY VAT IS PREFERRED OVER SALES TAX?
While theoretically the amount of revenue collected through VAT is equivalent to salestax collections at a similar rate, in practice VAT is likely to generate more revenue for government than sales tax since it is administered on various stages on the production – distribution chain. With sales tax, if final sales are not covered by the tax system e.g.due to difficulty of covering all the retailers, particular commodities may not yield anytax. However, with VAT some revenue would have been collected through taxation of earlier transactions, even if final retailers evade the tax net.There is also in-built pressure for compliance and auditing under VAT since it will be inthe interest of all who pay taxes to ensure that their eligibility for tax credits can bedemonstrated. VAT is also a fairer tax than sales tax as it minimizes or eliminates theproblem of tax cascading, which often occurs with sales tax. These are facilitated bythe fact that VAT operates through a credit system so that tax is only applied on valueadded at each stage in the production – distribution chain. At each intermediate stage
