GST is the single tax system for indirect taxes prevailing in India. It was introduced as Constitution 122nd Amendment Bill and was cleared by Lok Sabha on 6th May 2015 and by Rajya Sabha on 3rd August 2016
Under GST regime, all supply of goods and services like as sale, transfer, barter, lease, import of services etc made for a consideration will attract CGST which will be levied by Centre Government and SGST which will be levied by State Government.
As GST is applicable on Supply so the erstwhile taxable events such as Manufacture, Sale, Provision of Services etc. have lost their relevance.
In some exceptional conditions supplies made even without consideration will also attract GST. These conditions are like permanent transfer of business assets on which credit is availed, transaction with related entities, transactions with agent etc.
It is important to determine whether a transaction is a INTRA-STATE or INTER- STATE as taxes will be applicable accordingly. In case of Goods the place of supply is the location where the good are delivered. However for Services the place of supply is the location of recipient.
All the existing taxpayers registered who were registered under indirect taxes like VAT, Service Tax, and Excise are required to furnish the details at GST Common portal so that they can be migrated to GST.
