What is GST?

  • The Goods and Service Tax also called as GST was introduced in India as a form of indirect tax. It was first approved in the parliament on 29 March 2017 and was effectively implemented on 1 July 2017. GST superseded other forms of indirect taxes like excise duty VAT and other service taxes. In simple words all the goods and services in the market are subject to GST.

  • All the value added systems in India fall under multistage goods and service tax law. This is completely dependent on the state and the type of trade. The whole nation is under GST. Each and every point of sale is taxed under the GST system. Sales that take place inside one state are subject to both central and state sales taxes. The Integrated GST is liable for all interstate sales.

  • CGST, SGST, and IGST are the three sub components under GST. Out of the three, CGST is collected by the central government in case of intrastate sale. SGST is collected by the state government for internal commodity exchanges. The federal government collects inter state transactions in the name of IGST.

GST may be computed using the formulas below in the case of intrastate transactions.

CGST = applicable GST rate/2

If the GST rate is 28 %, then (28/2 =14 % ) this 14% is CGST.
SGST/UTGST = applicable GST rate / 2.

Interstate GST calculation

A Gujarati customer purchases products from the same merchant for ₹50,000. Goods are subject to a 12 % GST. This percentage includes both CGST and SGST, each at 6%.
