How to Create GST Interest Calculator in Excel (with Useful Steps)

If you are looking for how to create a GST interest calculator in Excel, then you are in the right place. In Excel, while doing business calculations, we often need to calculate different financial statistics and obviously, we need to deal with GST. In this article, weâ€™ll try to discuss how to create a GST interest calculator in Excel.

What Is GST?

GST stands for Goods and Service Tax. This is a value-added tax imposed on goods and services for domestic purposes. The final price of a good or service includes this tax. Although the consumer pays this tax, it is remitted to the government by the seller or the business.

Steps to Create GST Interest Calculator in Excel

Excel offers some easy steps to create a GST interest calculator. We just need to apply the arithmetic formulas correctly in the specific cells.

1. Creating Variable for GST Calculator

Firstly, we need to assign variable names for calculating GST interest and put them in the column headings. We have assigned the following variable names for our calculator.

• Month
• Due Date
• Date of Feeling
• Status
• Days of Delay
• Net Tax Liability
• Interest GST

Secondly, assign the Month and Due Date to file GST. We have created our calculator for the whole year( from January to December) and taken the Due Date 15th for every month. The variables added are like the picture below.

2. Adding GST Filing Status

In this step, we need to add GST Filing Status.

• Firstly, put the Date of Filing in D5:D16 range.

• Secondly, we need to calculate whether the Date of Filing has passed the due date or not. To do this, write the formula in the E5 cell like this.

=IF(D5<=C5,"On Time","Delayed")

Here, D5 and C5 refer to the first Date of Filing and the first Due Date respectively.

• Thirdly, press ENTER to get the output as Delayed.
• Fourthly, use the Fill Handle by dragging down the cursor while holding the right-bottom corner of the E5 cell like this.

• Eventually, weâ€™ll get the output like this.

• Fifthly, we have to find the Days of Delay in Column F. So, write the formula in the F5 cell like this.

=D5-C5

• Similarly, press ENTER and use the Fill Handle to get all the outputs like this.

3. Calculating Interest on GST

To calculate interest on GST, we have to find out the Net Tax Liability first. We need to assign Net Tax Liability for the concerned months. In our dataset, we have Net Tax Liability 8 times. For your case, find it from your notice and assign them as per the direction.

Interest will be counted for the months we havenâ€™t paid the GST on time. We have considered the Interest Rate as 16%. You can proceed on your own.

• Secondly, in the H5 cell, write the formula to calculate Interest on GST.
=G5*0.16*F5/365

Here, G5 and F5 refer to the first value of Net Tax Liability and Days of Delay.

• Eventually, press ENTER and use the Fill Handle to get all the Interest GST as outputs.

How to Calculate GST Late Fees and Total Payable Amount

We can also calculate GST Late Fees from the GST Interest Calculator. Now, calculate the GST Late Fees for the number of Delayed Days. We have considered Late Fees Per Day as 35.
So to get the total late fees, multiply the number of Delayed Days by Late Fees Per Day.
In order to get the total late fees, write the following formula in the I5 cell like this.

=F5*35

• Secondly, press ENTER and use the Fill Handle. So the outputs will be like this.

• Additionally, if we want to calculate the Total Payable Amount per month in Column J, first write the formula in the J5 cell like this.
=H5+I5

Here, H5 and I5 refer to the Interest GST and GST Late Fees in January respectively.

• Finally, press ENTER and use the Fill Handle.
• Consequently, weâ€™ll get the Total Payable Amount for each month like this.

Conclusion

Thatâ€™s all about todayâ€™s session. And these are the ways to create a GST calculator in Excel. We strongly believe this article would be highly beneficial for you. Donâ€™t forget to share your thoughts and queries in the comments section.
