Goods and Services Tax

Value Added Tax (VAT) at the Central and the State level has been considered to be a major step – an important breakthrough – in the sphere of indirect tax reforms in India. If the VAT is a major improvement over the pre-existing Central excise duty at the national level and the sales tax system at the State level, then the Goods and Services Tax (GST) will indeed be a further significant improvement – the next logical step – towards a comprehensive indirect tax reforms in the country.

Keeping this objective in view, an announcement was made by the then Union Finance Minister in the Central Budget (2007-08) to the effect that GST would be introduced with effect from April 1, 2010 and that the Empowered Committee of State Finance Ministers, on his request, would work with the Central Government to prepare a road map for introduction of GST in India.

The Indian government is studying tax reforms that include many other Central and State level direct and indirect taxes, excise duties, service tax and luxury tax, and replace them with a single Goods and Service Tax (GST). Customs duty will be levied out of GST and is likely to be replaced by VAT on imports.

Goods and services that are subject to GST can be taxed at standard rate, which is at a fixed rate of, for example 5% or 10%, and at zero rate. Zero rating is a concept only found under the GST framework. Suppliers of zero rated supplies do not collect GST because the GST rate is zero.
