Types of Taxes under GST
There will be three types of taxes under GST –
- IGST (Integrated GST) for Central GST and
- State GST and Interstate Transactions for Interstate Transactions
Since all central and state taxes have been merged and have been reported as a Tax for GST, State Governments and Central Government should be their GST share. Therefore there will be three types of tax under GST.
Since GST is a tax on the basis of consumption, tax revenue will be levied and taken for consumer state. This helps the consumer state to protect its taxable base.
If goods are transferred within the state, that is, the state of consumption is the same as the state of origin, there will be CGST (Central Government Tax) and SGST (Levy from the state government) If the goods are transferred from one state to another, the IGST will be imposed and the central government will resolve the tax to the consumer state.
Will GST Bring Down by Tax Burden?
The GST aims to eliminate the cascading tax effect. You can use all incoming loans and reduce the tax burden due to the use of credit. The loan can only be claimed after it corresponds to the invoices of the appropriate suppliers. In the current tax system, receivables for tax credits are not permitted under various tax laws.
For example tax credits at the expense of taxes payable by special taxes cannot be claimed from the quota for services and vice versa.
Will GST Increase my Compliance
The GST aims to reduce the burden of compliance of users. There is only one fulfillment that you need and you only have to do one fulfillment. In the current regime, service taxes, VAT and other income must be presented separately, while the income tax mechanism is different for each tax.
In GST, reports are prepared by GSTN when the assessee enters all the details of the purchase and sale. The invoice agreement for the use of credit for entry is done automatically and the return is being prepared.
After processing and approval, there is no other refund that is submitted on a monthly basis. Customers must submit and manage all taxes separately for excises, VAT, Service taxes, etc.
