What is GST ?
GST - the Goods and Services Tax, is an indirect tax in India.
With its origin, it has replaced many other indirect taxes in India such as VAT, CST, central excise duty, service tax and so on. GST is levied on the sale of goods and services in the country. GST is collected at the point of consumption and not at the point of origin unlike other taxes.
GST is a comprehensive, multi-stage, destination-based tax. This is levied on every value addition. The law governing GST was passed in the parliament on the 29th of March 2017 and it was implemented across the country on the 1st of July 2017.
