What is GST?GST - Marvelous way for a new Common National Market.
Goods and Services Tax (GST) is an indirect tax at the national level, levy on consumer when buying goods or services. This is the single tax levy on goods and services, from the manufacturing stage until its delivery stage. GST came into effect throughout India on 1 July 2017 and replaced several cascading indirect taxes levied by the central and state governments.
Goods and Services Tax is a comprehensive nationwide indirect tax on the manufacture, sale and consumption of goods and services. This is the great step in the field of India’s indirect tax reforms since independence. Goods and Services Tax (GST) can also be considered as ‘Consumption or Usage tax’.
Know the exact History of GST in India now.
Why GST in India?
- The main aim of GST is to bring “One Nation, One Tax” system.
- In India, there was several indirect taxes for goods and services, which vary from one state to another.
- The GST Bill aims to provide an ‘uniform tax rate’ for all goods and services throughout India.
- Under GST Bill, each citizen can pay ‘one single tax’ on goods and services, from the manufacturing stage until its delivery.
- This reduces multiple taxes levied by
- centre (excise tax, service tax etc),
- by state (VAT, CST, entry tax etc) and then
- also by local municipal bodies (octroi, LBT etc).
Benefits of GST:World’s first country implemented GST Law is France (in the year 1954). More than 160 countries have implemented this GST system. Following are the great benefits of GST in India.
Consumer side benefits:
- Uniform prices for goods and services throughout India.
- GST surely reduces tax burden of Indian citizens by removing multiple indirect taxes being levied by the Centre as well as State, as the cost of most goods and services in India today are laden with many hidden taxes.
- This means that consumer will now bear only the GST charged at the previous point of the supply chain and not from the manufacturing stage. This reduces tax burden for final consumer.
- Final cost of goods is expected to be lower due to seamless flow of input tax credit between the manufacturer, retailer and service supplier.
- Overall tax on several commodities and services will come down. This will benefit consumers more.
Benefits for Central and State Governments:
- GST replaces several indirect taxes at the Central and State levels, which leads to Simple and easy administration of tax system throughout India.
- GST will also make Indian products competitive in the domestic and international markets, which gains huge profit for Central and State Governments. GST would have a boosting impact on India’s economic growth.
- Improve the overall investment climate in India which will naturally benefit the development in the Indian states.
Benefits for Business and Industry:
- Free Flow of Goods and Services - No Checkpoints.
- Reduction in multiplicity of taxes:- There will be a common market in the absence of CST (Central Sales Tax - indirect tax imposed only on goods sold from one state to another state) and entry tax.
- Simpler Invoicing:- At present, the invoices are more detailed because taxes on goods and services are written separately for one transaction. With the implementation of GST, only one rate will be written.
- GST replaces entry tax:- Abolition of entry tax is great boon for the movement of goods by road transport.
- Relief on Big central excise tariff:- Eight digit classifications under central excise tariff (like 44079990, 76069110.) will be replaced by one rate.
- With the implementation of GST, zero rating is more comprehensive.
- Companies with the turnover of Rs. 20 lakh (Rs. 10 lakh for special category state) annually are exempted from GST.
- More efficient neutralization of taxes especially for exports.
Against the previous principle of origin based taxation, GST is a destination-based tax. GST follows a multi-stage collection mechanism. The Goods and Services Tax (GST) will be collected at every stage (from manufacturing stage of a product until its delivery to end consumer) and the credit of tax paid at the previous stage is available as a set-off at the next stage of transaction. This helps to eliminate “tax on tax” system.
How GST works in India?
Previous indirect tax structure in India can be understood clearly from the following chart:
Now GST (Goods and Services Tax) replaces all these indirect taxes levied by Central and State Governments.
When Goods and Services Tax is implemented, there will be 3 types of applicable Goods and Service Taxes viz CGST, SGST & IGST.
CGST - Central Goods and Services Tax: the revenue will be collected by the central government
SGST - State Goods and Services Tax: the revenue will be collected by the state governments for intra-state sales (i.e., sale within particular state in India)
IGST - Integrated Goods and Services Tax: the revenue will be collected by the central government for inter-state sales (i.e., sale between various states in India)
Import of goods will be treated as inter-State supplies and will be subject to IGST in addition to the applicable customs duties. Exports will be treated as zero-rated supplies which means no tax will be payable on exports of goods or services.
CGST, SGST & IGST concepts can be better understood from the following diagram:
|Transaction of goods||New Regime||Old Regime||Points to Note|
|Sale within the particular state||CGST + SGST||VAT + Central Excise/ Service tax||Revenue will now be shared between the Centre and the State|
|Sale to another State||IGST||Central Sales Tax + Excise/ Service Tax||There will only be one type of tax (central) now in case of inter-state sales.|

There are mainly Four tax rates to be levied as GST namely 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. There will be no GST for Education and healthcare.
