Frequently Asked Question

What is GST?

The Goods and Services Tax is a unified, multi-stage, and consumption-based tax levied on the supply of goods or services, combining all stages such as manufacture, sale and consumption of goods and services. It functions at a national level in order to replace most of the national and state tax systems like VAT, service tax, excise duty, etc. It removes the cascading effect of tax-on-tax, earlier prevalent. It is applicable to you if you are into manufacturing, trading, e-commerce or providing services, and your annual turnover exceeds a prescribed limit.
