GST is known as the Goods and Services Tax, GST is levied on the sale of goods and services. Unlike previous indirect taxes, this tax is collected at the point of consumption and not at the point of origin. To summarize, GST is a comprehensive, multi-stage, destination-based tax that is levied on every value addition.
The law governing GST was passed in the parliament on the 29th of March 2017 and it was implemented across the country on the 1st of July 2017.
