**Question-4. A shopkeeper buys an article from a wholesaler for 20000 and sells it to a consumer at 10% profit. If the rate of GST is 12%, find the tax liability of the shopkeeper.**

**Answer:**

CP of article = 20000

Profit = 10% profit

rate of GST is 12%

to find the tax liability first find Selling Price

SP= CP+ Profit

SP = 20000 + 20000 x 10/100

=20000 + 2000

= 22000

now the tax liability= output CGST + SGST- input CGST + SGST

⇒(22000 x 5/100) + (22000 x5/100) – (20000 x 5/100) + (20000 x5/100)

⇒ (1100 + 1100)- (1000+1000)

⇒ 2200 – 2000

⇒ 200

CGST = 10500 x 6 /100

=630

SGST = 10500 x 6 /100

=630

##### (iii) the tax (under CST) paid by the manufacturer to the Central Governments.

CGST = output tax – input tax

CGST = 10500 x6 /100 – 7500 x 2.5/100

= 630-187.5

=442.50

SGST = output tax – input tax

SGST = 10500 x6 /100 – 7500 x 2.5/100

= 630-187.5

=442.50

##### (iv) the amount paid by the dealer for the finished product.

**Question-7. A manufacturer sells a TV. to a dealer for 18000 and the dealer sell it to a consumer at a profit of R1500. If the sales are intra-state and the rate of GST is 12%, find:**

(i) the amount of GST paid by the dealer to the State Government

(ii) the amount of GST received by the Central Government

(iii) the amount of GST received by the State Government .

(iv) the amount that the consumer pays for the TV

**Answer:**

It is a case of intra-state

SGST = CGST = ½ GST

Given:

Manufacturer sells T.V to a dealer = ₹ 18000

Amount of GST collected by manufacturer from dealer,

CGST – SGST = 6% of 18000

= (6/100) × 18000

= ₹ 1080

So, Manufacturer will pay ₹ 1080 as CGST and ₹ 1080 as SGST

CP of a TV for dealer = ₹ 18000

Profit = ₹ 1500

SP of a TV for dealer to customer – CP + Profit = ₹ 18000 + ₹ 1500

= ₹ 19500

Amount of GST collected by dealer from customer,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹ 19500

= (6/100) × 19500

= ₹ 1170

**(i) Amount of GST paid by the dealer to the State Government.**

₹ 1170 – ₹ 1080 = ₹ 90

**(ii) Amount of GST received by the Central Government.**

CGST paid by manufacturer + CGST paid by dealer = ₹ 1080 + ₹ 90

= ₹ 1170

**(iii) Amount of GST received by the State Government.**

SGST paid by manufacturer + SGST paid by dealer = ₹ 1080 + ₹ 90

= ₹ 1170

**(iv) Amount that the consumer pays for the TV.**

CP of TV + CGST paid by customer + SGST paid by customer

= ₹19500 + ₹1170 + ₹ 1170 = ₹ 21840

**Question-8. A shopkeeper buys a camera at a discount of 20% from a wholesaler, the printed price of the camera being RS 1600. The shopkeeper sells it to a consumer at the printed price.**

**If the sales are intra-state and the rate of GST is 12%, find:**

(i) GST paid by the shopkeeper to the Central Government.

(ii) GST received by the Central Government.

(iii) GST received by the State Government

(iv) the amount at which the consumer bought the camera

**Answer :**

It is a case of intra-state

SGST = CGST = ½ GST

Given:

Printed price of a camera = ₹ 1600

Rate of discount = 20%

CP of camera for shopkeeper = printed price – Discount

= ₹1600 – 20% of ₹1600

= ₹1600 – (20/100) × 1600

= ₹1600 – ₹320

= ₹1280

It is given that, rate of GST = 12%

Amount of GST paid by the shopkeeper to the wholesaler,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹1280

= (6/100) × 1280

= ₹76.80

**(i) GST paid by the shopkeeper to the Central Government**

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹1600

= (6/100) × 1600

= ₹96

GST paid by the shopkeeper to the Central Government = ₹96 – ₹76.80 = ₹19.20

**(ii) GST received by the Central Government.**

CGST paid by wholesaler + CGST paid by shopkeeper = ₹76.80 + ₹19.20 = ₹96

**(iii) GST received by the State Government.**

SGST paid by wholesaler + SGST paid by shopkeeper = ₹76.80 + ₹19.20 = ₹96

**(iv) The amount at which the consumer bought the camera.**

Amount paid by consumer for camera = CP of camera + CGST paid by consumer + SGST paid by consumer = ₹1600 + ₹96 + ₹96 = ₹1792

**Question-9 A dealer buys an article at a discount of 30% from the wholesaler, the marked price being 6000. The dealer sells it to a consumer at a discount of 10% on the marked price.**

**If the sales are intra-state and the rate of GST is 5%, find:**

(i) the amount paid by the consumer for the article.

(ii) the tax (under GST) paid by the dealer to the State Government.

(iii) the amount of tax (under GST) received by the Central Government

**Answer:**

Since , it is a case of intra – state transaction of good and service.

SGST=CGST=(1/2) GST;

Rate of GST=5%

Rate of discount given by the wholesaler = 30%

CP of an article for dealer = Marked price – Discount

= ₹6000 – 30% of ₹6000

= ₹6000 – (30/100) × 6000

= ₹6000 – 1800

= ₹4200

Amount of GST paid by dealer to wholesaler,

CGST = SGST = 2.5% of ₹4200

= (2.5/100) × 4200

= ₹105

**(i) The amount paid by the consumer for the article.**

SP of an article for consumer = Marked price – Discount

= ₹6000 – 10% of ₹6000

= ₹6000 – (10/100) × 6000

= ₹6000 – 600

= ₹5400

Amount of GST paid by consumer to dealer,

CGST = SGST = 2.5% of ₹5400

= (2.5/100) × 5400

= ₹135

Amount paid by consumer for article = CP of article for consumer + CGST paid by consumer + SGST paid by consumer = ₹5400 + ₹135 + ₹135 = ₹5670

**(ii) The tax (under GST) paid by the dealer to the State Government.**

₹135 – ₹105 = ₹30

**(iii) The amount of tax (under GST) received by the Central Government.**

CGST paid by wholesaler + CGST by dealer = ₹105 + ₹30 = ₹135

**Question-10.** **The printed price of an article is 50000. The wholesaler allows a discount of 10% to a shopkeeper. The shopkeeper sells the article to a consumer at 4% above the marked price. If the sales are intra-state and the rate of GST is 18%, find:**

(i) the amount inclusive of tax (under GST) which the shopkeeper pays for the article

(ii) the amount paid by the consumer for the article.

(iii) the amount of tax (under GST) paid by the shopkeeper to the Central Government

(iv) the amount of tax (under GST) received by the State Government.

**Answer:**

It is a case of intra-state

SGST = CGST = ½ GST

Given:

Marked price of an article = ₹50000

Rate of GST = 18%

**(i) The amount inclusive of tax (under GST) which the shopkeeper pays for the articles.**

Rate of discount given by the wholesaler = 10%

CP of an article for shopkeeper = Marked price – Discount

= ₹50000 – 10% of ₹50000

= ₹50000 – (10/100) × 50000

= ₹50000 – 5000

= ₹45000

Amount of GST paid by dealer to wholesaler,

CGST = SGST = 9% of ₹45000

= (9/100) × 45000

= ₹4050

Amount paid by shopkeeper for an article = CP of an article for shopkeeper + CGST paid by consumer + SGST paid by consumer = ₹45000 + ₹4050 + ₹4050 = ₹53100

**(ii) The amount paid by the consumer for the article.**

SP of an article for consumer = Marked price – Discount

= ₹50000 – 4% of ₹50000

= ₹50000 – (4/100) × 50000

= ₹50000 – 2000

= ₹48000

Amount of GST paid by consumer to dealer,

CGST = SGST = 9% of ₹48000

= (9/100) × 48000

= ₹4320

Amount paid by consumer for article = CP of article for consumer + CGST paid by consumer + SGST paid by consumer = ₹48000 + ₹4320 + ₹4320 = ₹56640

**(iii) The amount of tax (under GST) paid by the shopkeeper to the Central Government.**

₹4320 – ₹4050 = ₹270

**(iv) The amount of tax (under GST) received by the State Government.**

SGST paid by wholesaler + SGST paid by shopkeeper = ₹4050 + ₹270 = ₹4320

**Question-11. A retailer buys a T.V. from a wholesaler for 40000. He marks the price of the TV 15% above his cost price and sells it to a consumer at 5% discount on the marked price. If the sales are intra-state and the rate of GST is 12%, find:**

(i) the marked price of the TV.

(ii) the amount which the consumer pays for the TV,

(iii) the amount of tax (under GST) paid by the retailer to the Central Government.

(iv) the amount of tax (under GST) received by the State Government.

**Answer:**

It is a case of intra-state

SGST = CGST = ½ GST

Given:

**(i) The marked price of the TV.**

It is given that, CP of TV for retailer = ₹40000

Marked price of TV = ₹40000 + 15% of 40000

= ₹40000 + (15/100) × 40000

= ₹40000 + 6000

= ₹46000

**(ii) The amount which the consumer pays for the TV.**

It is given that, Discount given by retailer = 5% of ₹46000

= (5/100) × 46000

= ₹2300

Amount paid by consumer without GST for TV = ₹46000 – ₹2300

= ₹43700

Rate of GST = 12%

Amount of GST paid by consumer = 12% of ₹43700

= (12/100) × 43700

= ₹5244

Amount which consumer pays for TV = ₹43700 + ₹5244 = ₹48944

**(iii) The amount of tax (under GST) paid by the retailer to the Central Government.**

CGST paid by shopkeeper = 6% of ₹40000

= (6/100) × 40000

= ₹2400

SGST paid by shopkeeper = 6% of ₹40000 = ₹2400

Shopkeeper sells the article to consumer = ₹43700

GST collected by shopkeeper = 12% of ₹43700

= (12/100) × 43700

= ₹5244

CGST of shopkeeper = SGST = 6% of ₹43700

= (6/100) × 43700

= ₹2622

The amount of tax (under GST) paid by the retailer to the Central Government =

₹2622 – ₹2400 = ₹222

**(iv) The amount of tax (under GST) received by the State Government.**

SGST paid by wholesaler + SGST paid by shopkeeper = ₹2400 + ₹222 = ₹2622

**Question-12. A shopkeeper buys an article from a manufacturer for 12000 and marks up it price by 25%. The shopkeeper gives a discount of 10% on the marked up price and he gives further off-season discount of 5% on the balance to a customer of T.V. If the sales are**

**intra-state and the rate of GST is 12%, find:**

(i) the price inclusive of tax (under GST) which the consumer pays for the T.V.

(ii) the amount of tax (under GST) paid by the shopkeeper to the State Government.

(iii) the amount of tax (under GST) received by the Central Government,

**Answer:**

It is a case of intra-state

Therefore SGST = CGST = ½ GST

Given:

**(i) The price inclusive of tax (under GST) which the consumer pays for the TV.**

CP of an article for shopkeeper = ₹12000

Marked price of article = ₹12000 + 25% of ₹12000

= ₹12000 + (25/100) × 12000

= ₹15000

Amount of discount given by shopkeeper = 10% of ₹15000

= (10/100) × 15000

= ₹1500

Again, shopkeeper gives off season discount of 5% on the balance = 5% of (15000 – 1500) = (5/100) × 13500

= ₹675

CP of TV for consumer = ₹13500 – ₹675 = ₹12825

Amount of GST paid by consumer = 12% of ₹12825

= (12/100) × 12825

= ₹1539

The price inclusive of tax (under GST) which the consumer pays for the TV = ₹12825 + ₹1539 = ₹14364

**(ii) The amount of tax (under GST) paid by the shopkeeper to the Stale Government.**

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹12000

= (6/100) × 12000

= ₹720

GST paid by consumer to shopkeeper,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹12825

= (6/100) × 12825

= ₹769.50

The amount of tax (under GST) paid by the shopkeeper to the Stale Government =

₹769.50 – ₹720 = ₹49.50

**(iii) The amount of tax (under CST) received by the Central Government.**

CGST paid by manufacturer = ₹720

CGST paid by shopkeeper = ₹769.50 – ₹720 = ₹49.50

The amount of tax (under CST) received by the Central Government =

₹720 + ₹49.50 = ₹769.50

It is inter-state in both case sales from manufacturer to wholesaler and wholesaler to retailer.

Therefore, CGST = SGST = 0

GST = IGST

Given:

Printed price of an article = ₹40000

Discount given by manufacturer = 10% of ₹40000

= (10/100) × 40000

= ₹4000

CP of article for wholesaler = ₹40000 – ₹4000 = ₹36000

CP of article without tax for retailer = ₹40000 + 5% of ₹40000

= ₹40000 + (5/100) × 40000

= ₹42000

**(i) The amount inclusive of tax (under GST) paid by the wholesaler for the article.**

Amount of GST paid by wholesaler to manufacturer = 18% of ₹36000

= (18/100) × 36000

= ₹6480

(i) the price inclusive of tax (under G5T) at which the shopkeeper bought the article.

(ii) the amount which the consumer pays for the article.

(iii) the amount of tax (under GST) received by the State Government of Delhi

(iv) the amount of tax (under GST) received by the Central Government.

**Answer:**

**(i) The price inclusive of tax (under GST) at which the wholesaler bought the article.**

CP of an article for shopkeeper = ₹24000

Rate of GST = 12%

IGST collected by wholesaler from shopkeeper = 12% of ₹24000

= (12/100) × 24000

= ₹2880

The price inclusive of tax (under GST) at which the wholesaler bought the article =

CP of article for shopkeeper + IGST paid by shopkeeper to wholesaler = ₹24000 + ₹2880

= ₹26880

**(ii) The amount which the consumer pays for the article.**

CP of an article for shopkeeper = ₹24000

Profit on CP of article = 15% of CP

SP of an article by the shopkeeper to consumer = CP + Profit

= ₹24000 + 15% of ₹24000

= ₹24000 + (15/100) × 24000

= ₹24000 + 3600

= ₹27600

The amount which the consumer pays for the article = CP of article for consumer + CGST paid by the consumer + SGST paid by consumer =

₹27600 + 6% of ₹27600 + 6% of ₹27600 =

₹27600 + (6/100) × ₹27600 + (6/100) × ₹27600 = ₹27600 + ₹1656 + ₹1656

= ₹30912

= ₹24000 + (15/100) × ₹24000

= ₹24000 + ₹3600

= ₹27600

As the shopkeeper sells an article to consumer in Delhi; so this sales is Intra-state sales.

Amount of GST collected by shopkeeper from consumer,

CGST = SGST = 6% of ₹27600

= (6/100) × ₹27600

= ₹1656

Amount of tax paid by shopkeeper to state govt. = ₹2880 – ₹1656 = ₹1224

The amount of tax (under GST) received by the State Government of Delhi =

₹1656 – ₹1224 = ₹432

**(iv) The amount of tax (under GST) received by the Central Government.**

The amount of tax (under GST) received by the Central Government = IGST received from wholesaler + CGST received from shopkeeper = ₹ 2880 + NIL = ₹ 2880

**Question-16**. **A dealer in Maharashtra buys an article from a wholesaler in Maharashtra at a discount of 25%, the printed price of the article being * 20000. He sells the article to a consumer in Telengana at a discount of 10%, on the printed price. If the rate of GST is 12%,, find:**

(i) the tax (under GST) paid by the wholesaler to Governments.

(ii) the tax (under GST) paid by the dealer to the Government

(iii) the amount which the consumer pays for the article.

**Answer:**

**(i) the tax (under GST) paid by the wholesaler to Governments.**

SGST paid by the wholesaler to Governments.

= 15000 x 6/100

=900 to Maharastra Govt

CGST paid by the wholesaler to Governments.

= 15000 x 6/100

=900 to Maharastra Govt

**(ii) the tax (under GST) paid by the dealer to the Government**

Now sells are inter state hence all tax to central govt

CGST = Output – Input

= 18000 x 12/100 – 15000 x 12/100

= 360 IGST to central Govt

**(iii) the amount which the consumer pays for the article.**

= SP of dealer + Tax

=18000 + 18000 x 12/100

=18000+ 2160

= 20160

**Question-17. Kiran purchases an article for * 5310 which includes 10% rebate on the marked price and 18% tax (under GST) on the remaining price. Find the marked price of the article.**

**Answer:**

Rate of GST = 18%

CP of an article = x – 10% of x

= x – (10/100)x

= 90x/100

= 9x/10

Amount of GST on CP of article = 18% of 9x/10

= (18/100) × 9x/10

Total CP of article = 9x/10 + [(18/100) × 9x/10] – 9x/10(1 + 18/100) – (118/100) × 9x/10

It is given that, CP of an article including tax = ₹5310

So,

(118/100) × 9x/10 = 5310

x = 5310 × (100/118) × (10/9)

= 5000

The required marked price of an article is ₹5000

**Question-18. A shopkeeper buys an article whose list price is 8000 at some rate of discount from a wholesaler. He sells the article to a consumer at the list price. The sales are intra-state and the rate of GST is 18%. If the shopkeeper pay a tax (under GST) of 72 to the State Government, find the rate of discount at which he bought the article from the wholesaler.**

**Answer:**

List of price of an article = ₹8000

Let the rate of discount given by wholesaler = x%

So,

Discount = x% of ₹8000

= (x/100) × ₹8000

= ₹80x

CP of an article for shopkeeper = ₹8000 – ₹80x

It is given that, CP of article for consumer = ₹8000

Since the sales are intra-state, rate of GST = 18%

CGST = SGST = 9%

Amount of GST paid by shopkeeper to wholesaler,

SGST = CGST = 9% of [₹8000 – ₹80x]

= (9/100) × [₹8000 – ₹80x]

Amount of GST paid by consumer to shopkeeper,

CGST = SGST = 9% of ₹8000

= (9/100) × ₹8000

= ₹720

So, the tax paid by shopkeeper to state government = ₹720 – (9/100) × [₹8000 – ₹80x]

Also, tax paid by shopkeeper to state government = ₹72

₹72 – 720 – (9×80) (100 – x) / (100)

720 – 72 = (720/100) (100 – x)

648 = (72/10) (100 – x)

100 – x = (648×10)/72

100 – x = 90

x = 100 – 90

= 10

So rate of discount = 10%
