Let’s start understanding how GST works in India.
GST or Goods and Services Tax is a comprehensive indirect tax, applicable to the majority of goods and services sold or consumed in India. It is a complicated system with three different terms of taxes: IGST (Indirect Goods and Services Tax), CGST (Central Goods and Services Tax), and SGST (State Goods and Services Tax). These taxes are defined depending on the location of the customer or supplier.
The IGST applies to cross-border trade. It is a tax imposed on goods and services that are consumed in India, whether they are imported or domestically produced. The taxes imposed on both imported and domestic products are collected by the central government and redistributed to states based on the destination of the product.
The CGST is a tax paid by the business that supplies goods or services to another individual or company. This tax is paid to the central government.
Finally, the SGST is a tax imposed on those who import or supply goods or services in their territory. This tax is paid to their respective state government. The SGST has a destination-based model, for which it will be subtracted from the price paid by your customer, even if this customer does not reside in your territory.
It will be harder for companies to evade GST as new rules will require them to declare digital payments of less than Rs 20,000 made from one person to another. The move comes as part of efforts to bring more individuals under the GST net.
