Goods and Services Tax (GST) that was introduced on the 1st July 2017 in India is an indirect/consumption tax levied on practically all goods and services. It seeks to be comprehensive, subsuming most levies such as octroi and sales tax;barring some state levies. It is also multistage in nature since it is imposed at every step in the production processes, although it allows refund once the final consumer has been duly levied. As such it is a destination based tax, being collected from point of consumption and not point of origin as per previous tax regimes.

GST Rates

There are five basic slabs for rates of taxes levied on Goods and Services. These are: 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28% respectively.

However, with more than 1300 categories of goods and 500 categories of services and the complications of special rates for some and scores of differing rules governing treatment, added to which is the fact that rules are constantly modified, GST in India can be an extremely complicated affair to handle.

For example, there is a special rate of 0.25% on rough precious and semi-precious stones, but 1.5% on silver and 3% on gold. How then, is one to determine the tax rate on jewelry that may be crafted from all three?

Another example: All manufacturers are supposed to be entitled to Input Tax Credit (ITC), but, this is not allowed for electricity, although it is taxed – with states enforcing their own various rates.
