GST means Goods and Services Tax. It is an indirect tax levied on sale of goods and services. The reformists believe that GST is one of the most awaited laws which upon introduction will boost the economic growth in the country.

  • GST is a tax on goods and services with comprehensive and continuous chain of setoff benefits from the Producer’s point and Service provider’s point up to the retailer level.
  • GST is expected be levied only at the destination point, and not at various points (from manufacturing to retail outlets). It is essentially a tax only on value addition at each stage and a supplier at each stage is permitted to set off through a tax credit mechanism which would eliminate the burden of all cascading effects, including the burden of CENVAT and service tax.
  • Under GST structure, all different stages of production and distribution can be interpreted as a mere tax pass through and the tax essentially sticks on final consumption within the taxing jurisdiction.
  • Currently, a manufacturer needs to pay tax when a finished product moves out from the factory, and it is again taxed at the retail outlet when sold. The taxes are levied at the multiple stages such as CENVAT, Central sales tax, State Sales Tax, Octroi, etc. which will be replaced by GST to be introduced at Central and State level.
  • All goods and services, barring a few exceptions, will be brought into the GST base. There will be no distinction between goods and services.
  • Under GST, the taxation burden will be divided equitably between manufacturing and services, through a lower tax rate by increasing the tax base and minimizing exemptions.
  • However, the basic features of law such as chargeability, definition of taxable event and taxable person, measure of levy including valuation provisions, basis of classification etc. would be uniform across these statutes as far as practicable.
  • The existing CST will be discontinued. Instead, a new statute known as IGST will come into place on the inter-state transfer of the Goods and Services.
  • By removing the cascading effect of taxes (CST, additional customs duty, surcharges, luxury Tax, Entertainment Tax, etc. ), CGST & SGST will be charged on same price.
