Babulogy: GST Composition Scheme: It is a scheme for the small business men whose turnover is less than or equal to Rs. 1.5 crore (now extended) under which they can pay GST every quarter at a fixed rate of their turnover rather than following the usual rates of interest determined by the GST council. This prevents them from the tedious process of paying taxes and once their business crosses the threshold limit, they can easily opt out of the scheme.
