Goods and Service Tax (GST) is an indirect tax (or consumption tax) levied all across our nation, on the sale of goods and services. GST is levied at every stride in the production process. It is refunded to the producers, dealers, wholesalers, and retailers, but not to the final consumer.
0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28% are the five slab rates for collection of tax on Goods and Services. Certain products such as Petroleum products, alcoholic drinks, electricity, and real estate are taxed separately by the individual state governments. There is a special rate of 0.25% on rough precious and semi-precious stones and 3% on gold. In addition, a cess of 22% or other rates on top of 28% GST applies on a few items like aerated drinks, luxury cars, and tobacco products. Pre-GST, the statutory tax rate for most goods was about 26.5%, Post GST most goods are expected to be in the 18% tax range.
The act was enacted on July 1, 2017, through the implementation of One Hundred and First Amendment (101st) of the Constitution. The tax has replaced the existing taxes levied by the central and state governments which had multiple cascading effects. The rules, regulations and the tax rates are governed by the GST Council which made-up of finance minister of center and all the states. GST simplified a few of indirect taxes with a unified tax and is therefore expected to dramatically reshape the country's 2.4 trillion-dollar economy.Trucks travel time in interstate movement dropped by 20%, because of no interstate check posts.
In our country, we as a citizen have to pay two types of taxes i.e. Direct tax and Indirect tax. Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a type of Indirect tax which has replaced many other indirect taxes applicable all across the nation. The Goods and services tax act was passed by the parliament on March 29th, 2017 which came into effect on July 1st, 2017. In the year 2000, a committee was set up to draft GST law and it took its final form in 2017, therefore GST took 17 years to come into its real application i.e. a Unified Indirect tax reform for the people.
It is basically levied on the sale of goods and services. Now GST is the only indirect tax charged on the sale of goods and services on its value addition replacing various other previously existing indirect tax laws in the nation.
GST is a multi-stage and destination-based tax law which is levied at every point of sale of goods and services. Central GST (CGST) and State GST (SGST) is charged in case of transactions occurring intra – state while in case of the interstate, Integrated GST (IGST) is charged.
The production of goods and services goes through many stages from manufacturer to final sale to the customer. Thus, GST is levied at each stage, making it the multi-stage tax. GST is charged only to the value added at each stage by the seller. Also, GST is levied at the point of consumption, hence it is destination based.
