Purchase from Composite Vendor or Purchase of Exempted Goods and Services with No GST Impact

A composite vendor is a vendor whose aggregate turnover in a financial year does not exceed fifty lakh rupees and has opted for composition scheme. A composite vendor neither collects tax from the recipient of supplies nor passes on any credit of input tax. Hence, no GST is computed if the purchases are made from a composite vendor.

A composite vendor has to register himself with the GST authorities and hence registration no. is mandatorily mentioned in the vendor card, if the vendor type is selected as composite. State code is also mandatory. No GST entries are generated for a composite vendor, as a composite vendor is not entitled to collect any tax from the customers.
