You incorporate your store online as, without registering your business for GST, you won’t be able to sell on big marketplaces like Amazon, Snapdeal, or Flipkart.

E-commerce operators who operate on the internet marketplace collecting consideration with respect to taxable online sales made by the Seller on the marketplace are required to collect an amount equal to 1% of the net value of taxable sales beginning 1 October 2018. This sum is known as ‘Tax Collection at Source,’ and it is supposed to be remitted to the government on a monthly basis by them. Sellers will be able to use the TCS credit to reduce their output tax liability for Goods and Services Tax (GST). As a result, regardless of the sales level, sellers offering taxable products and services through an online marketplace will be obliged to register for GST.

However, the government has exempted some items from GST, which are referred to as exempted supply and do not incur GST. Books, maps, plastic bangles, and some designated handicraft goods are examples of GST exempted products.  To find out which items are GST-free, go to the GST portal. You might also contact the consultants at Vakilsearch who are GST service providers for information on the same.

There are three categories of supplies that are eligible for GST exemption. The following are the details:

  • Supplies that are taxed at a rate of 0% or zero.
  • CGST or SGST supply may be excluded in whole or in part.
  • Items coming under Section 2 (78)
Input tax credit is not applicable to these supplies.
