Kerala VAT Rules - Form 16


As many of you who live in Kerala know who have ordered items from companies such as Dell, you are required to send them a Form 16 (as prescribed under the Kerala Value Added Tax Rules 2005). This form must be countersigned by an officer in the Commercial Taxes Department if the item being transported into Kerala is worth more than Rs. 5,000/-.

Recently (15/02/2008), the Commissioner of Commercial Taxes of the Government of Kerala had issued a Circular to all Sales/Commercial Tax Offices forbidding them from countersigning Form-16, citing the rampant misuse of its provisions by several commercial agencies within the state, especially construction companies.

The Commissioner of Commercial Taxes has now come to realize that this ban on issuing Form-16 effectively prevents any person from importing any goods into Kerala that costs more that Rs. 5,000/-, and so has issued a clarification, stating that in cases where goods are purchased and transported into the state for personal use, there is no need for a countersigned Form-16, provided that the inspection officers at the borders are satisfied as to the bona fide nature of the claim of personal use.

I am attaching the circular of the Commissioner CTD, number 7/08, for your reference.

However, all material must be accompanied by a certificate from the purchaser attesting to the personal nature of the purchase.

Re: Kerala VAT Rules - Form 16

Your main intention was not to safeguard [E], but to sabotage KMD's sales.

If your main intention was to safeguard E, then you wouldnt have told this to every tom, dick and harry who buys from KMD, you would have only informed me and karan.

But anyway, thanks for bringing it to my notice, you did save E from trouble in the future .

It seems logical that Aditya may move all posts other than the original one to a new OT thread.

Re: Kerala VAT Rules - Form 16

Re: Kerala VAT Rules - Form 16

Hey guys, I'm really a noobie. Any admins can help me out. I wanted to ask. I want to parcel a box of speakers around 4kgs (value maybe 700 bux) to Kerala. It's for personal use basically. Do these forms have to be filled?? The package is going to be sent through surface.

I called AFL courier & they old me yes. However, in the link above KMD has provided from Blue Dart, it says "Shipments consigned to individuals who do not have CST & TIN/LST nos, a declaration from the consignee that the goods are not for sale and for personal consumption is a must."

Please help!!!

Re: Kerala VAT Rules - Form 16

AFAIK all shipments by KMD have a declaration that they are for personal consumption only. I dont think you will face any problem as such. In the unlikely case you are asked about the package then it will be safe for you to say that it is a personal transaction only.

Please also note that such a personal transaction is not covered by consumer protection laws and you will not be able to do anything in case something goes wrong with the item and the seller does not honour warranty.
