Goods and Services Tax (GST) Indian government has enacted a new tax regime known as GST e. (Goods and Services Tax) on the impaired way of indirect taxation in our country. As it is introduced it will replace a number of other taxes like VAT, CST, SERVICE TAX, CAD, SAD, Excise, Entry Tax, Purchase tax, etc.
The initial idea of implementing GST is transforming India into a single market. This might have a positive impact on the GDP of India. Á unified indirect tax system, a simplified tax regime, a reduction in manufacturing cost, and the removal of cascading effect of taxes are some of the salient features of GST. However, since it is a destination-based tax, it is important to determine where the product is consumed and the services provided. Also when a new tax is proposed, it takes some time to understand its actual effects.
What is GST-IN
GST-IN refers to the GST Identification Number, which is a unique identification number assigned to every business registered under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in India. It is a 15-digit alphanumeric code that is based on the state code and the PAN (Permanent Account Number) of the business.
The GSTIN is used to track all the transactions of a registered business for the purposes of tax collection and compliance. Every registered business is required to display its GSTIN on its invoices, tax returns, and other documents related to its business transactions.
GST is applicable to 150 countries all over the world. As the process of taxing taxation on goods and other services gets simpler, fairer, and easier, lots of people would like to pay taxes. It will result in a greater amount of money deposition in the state exchequer. Once the state coffers are full to its extremes the return will be bestowed on its people only. The govt. will be in a comfortable position to implement its agenda of people’s welfare.
