Indian and global manufacturers of fashion and lifestyle productshave asked Departmental stores to pass on the benefits generated from the sale of products by retailers under Goods and Services Tax regime.

ET reported that such companies seeking some margin benefits from department store chains, which sell various brands under one roof. They said the chains stand to save about 2% due to the switchover to GST.

They may save to the tune of 1-1.5% on the overall costs, said the head of an Indian group that has its own bouquet of products and global brands. If you go by the real spirit of the GST that is how the whole thing has to happen... whoever is saying something has to pass it on. We are also taking this opportunity and telling them that if they are saving something, then pass it on.

With GST implemented from July 1, a range of indirect taxes levied by the Centre and state governments, including service tax and value-added tax, have been subsumed into one levy. Under GST, the tax on rentals can be set off against input tax credits available for other goods and services.

We give them a certain margin when they buy goods from us. We are trying to reduce their margin a bit, said the chief executive of a global brand asking not to be identified told ET. Talks are going on. Everybody is pushing it very hard. He said Shoppers Stop alone stands to save between Rs 30-50 crore a year.
