Goods and Service Tax (GST)

There has been much debate on GST tax rates recently amongst the trading community and the GST council.

The GST council of members has held several rounds of meetings to revise GST rates. The latest GST rates show a reduction of 6% to 18% in GST rates for various commodities across most categories.

GST is a tax levied for the consumption of goods and services. The tax is applied by the supplier of products and services while billing customers.

GST is a unified and simplified taxation system that replaced the earlier goods and services taxation system of VAT. GST is applied in a simplified structure along the supply chain.

The GST rates for commonly-used consumable products are given in the below table
