How does CENVAT Credit workCENVAT means Central Value Added Tax.


CENVAT credit is a credit in respect of central excise on inputs purchased for the manufacture or duty paid in relation to the manufacture of the final product. CENVAT credit is also available in respect of duty paid on capital goods, which include machinery, plant, spare parts of machinery etc. in other words, instead of paying cash towards central excise on shipment of goods, the exporter can adjust the excise duty paid on the inputs and machinery. Virtually, CENVAT CREDIT is like a credit balance in bank account that can be adjusted towards the excise duty payable.


Let me explain how does CENVAT credit scheme work? . ABC Ltd is the manufacturer and exporter of toys and it purchases certain components from PQR Ltd for use in manufacture of toys. PQR Ltd would have paid excise duty on components manufactured by it and it would have recovered that excise duty in its sale price from ABC Ltd. Now, ABC Ltd has to pay excise duty on toys manufactured by it as well as bear the excise duty paid by its supplier, PQR Ltd. This amounts to multiple taxation. ABC Ltd can take credit for excise duty paid by PQR Ltd so that lower excise duty is payable by ABC Ltd, at the time of export. This is how CENVAT CREDIT works.


Under CENVAT Credit scheme, the benefit of excise duty on inputs is available, instantaneously, when the inputs reach the factory. There is no need to establish any linkage between the inputs and goods manufactured . In case of capital goods, 50% benefit is available in the current year of purchase and balance in the next year. This balance can be adjusted against the duty payable but is not refunded. So, it is desirable to utilize this balance, at the earliest.


In other words under a CENVAT CREDIT scheme, exporter is totally freed from the burden of excise duty, at all the different stages, on inputs used, duty paid on final products and even duty paid on capital goods purchased. Under a CENVAT credit scheme, the intention of Government is to eliminate the burden of excise duty on exports totally, paid directly or indirectly, to make them globally competitive.  Also read  2 CENTRAL EXCISE CLEARANCE OPTIONS for Exports in India    Central excise clearance  options    CENTRAL EXERCISE CLEARANCE PROCEDURES for Export in India – Part 2    CENTRAL EXERCISE CLEARANCE PROCEDURES for Export in India – Part 1    Procedure for Central Excise Clearance Under Claim of Rebate

Sir, I'm working in the procurement section of a Power Transfomer manufacturing firm situatd in Kerala. We source most of the raw materials from north indian suppliers/manufactirers. Most of our customers are also in Northern side of India. Transformer oil is one of the rawmaterial and which we just fill in the tank of the transfoemr before dispatch. This can be done from the site/customer's end also. If we could dispatch the same from our supplier to customer's site huge amount of freight can be saved. Is there any provision to avail CENVAT credit for direct dispatch of oil from our supplier to customer as we are un necessarily wasting our money (freight) and time ( travel time).

I am new to the online business model and started my online business with sites like eBay and Amazon here in India. I come to know about many sellers who import items from USA or UK and selling it online. I also ordered some items from them but when I ask them about the VAT bill, they inform me that they import goods in my name and they can not provide me the VAT invoice. And the products are personal use and not for resale. They list the items which are available in USA and they must be calculating the courier cost, duty and their profit and list for online sale in Indian currency and when buyer buy this item, they purchase it from the seller in USA and ship it to India and deliver it to the buyer. Buyer will pay the fix price and custom clearance will be done by seller. I can not compete them and planning to start this business but I am not getting any information about how can I start this business. I need some expert advice on this and need information and guidance in starting this business. Your advice is highly appreciated. Says :

I have decided to start an export business and got my IE code for my new Company. Now I have some doubts to start with the export. I believe you will clarify and help me on these doubts. 1. Is CST,VAT and TIN registration mandatory for only export? Is yes is there any way we can do export without these? 2. If no, what are the documents used to product movement from one place (may be from other states) to the port? 3. Can I export multiple products(say groceries, veg, etc) with minimum quantity for personal use? (I want to start with minimum quantity to my friends in abroad) 4. How can I find the buyers who requires minimum quantity (within 1000 kg) Please clarify me these doubts at your earliest convenience.

Good day. I am planning to import RBD Palm Olein from Malaysia to India for packaging and sold in the local market. The import tariff on the product in India is 20.6%. With the import tariff my cost per kg of RBD Palm Olein is coming up to INR65. However, my competitors and market rate of the RBD Palm Olein in India is INR58/kg. Would it be that my competitors are availing the CENVAT through which they could get certain credit? Or is there is any else that I am missing? Appreciate your guidance. Thanks
