What is gst?

We can simply consider this tax as an indirect tax levied on goods and services. In India, this indirect tax has replaced many other previously existed indirect tax laws.

Now with G00ds and Service Tax, the public needs to pay tax at every point of sale. The public will need to pay Central GST and State GST in case of inter-state sales.

To completely understand GST, we need to go thoroughly through the definition of GST. GST is defined as a destination-based, multi-stage tax that applies to every value addition.

Value addition: For making biscuits, the manufacturer will need to pay for buying flour, sugar, and many other materials. The value of the product increases in mixing and baking four and sugar into biscuits.
The value of this biscuit further increases when the manufacturer sells them to a warehouse where they are labeled. On retail marketing, the price of biscuits further increases as the retailer invests in the marketing of biscuits.
The GST will be applied to all these value additions.

Multi-stage: It refers to multiple changes of hands in a supply chain that a good goes through. In the supply chain, a good go from manufacturer to final consumer.

Good and service tax will be levied on every stage which includes:

  1. Purchase of raw material
  2. Manufacturing
  3. Transport of finished goods
  4. Wholesale
  5. Retail
  6. Sale to the final customer.

As this public need to pay tax on all these stages, this makes it a multi-stage tax.

Destination-Based:

The entire tax revenue will go to the state where it is finally sold. For example, good is manufactured in Maharastra and the final customer is in Karnataka. Karnataka will get the entire tax.
