Goods & Service Tax (GST)

Largest reform in Tax structure in India is nothing else then Goods &Service Tax (GST). Do you know how GST is different from any other current tax regime? What is the working procedure in GST? What is the implementation system of GST for the person in India?

In the present tax regime, State Government has the power to levy and modify the state related tax i.e. Value added tax (VAT) or Sales tax & various. Similarly, Central Government has the power to levy and regulate the taxes i.e. Service tax on the service sector for the supply of service & excise duty on manufacturing of goods. Hence, it creates the multiple taxes in the country to regulate.

Reasons, why GST is implemented in the Country:-

  • Multiple taxes, Hence, No uniformity of tax rates in the country.
  • Cascading of taxes means ‘tax on tax’.
  • Dealer not eligible to get the input Credit of service tax & Excise Duty, Hence it increase the cost of the goods.
  •  Further, if any state paid the tax to any state will not be eligible to avail the input Credit of such taxes. Hence, it reduces the trading facility between two states in the country.

Hence, it becomes necessary in the country to implement Goods & Service Tax to increase the faith on the tax system by the dealer.
