Goods and Services Tax (GST)
GST is a destination based tax on consumption of goods and services. It is proposed to be levied at all stages right from manufacture up to final consumption with credit of taxes paid at previous stages available as setoff. In a nutshell, only value addition will be taxed and burden of tax is to be borne by the final consumer.
Thus the current indirect taxes levied by state and centre are all set to be replaced with proposed implementation of GST by July 2017. It is believed by many of the prominent economists of the country that GSt would be the biggest tax reform of all times and a boon to the Indian economy since it will eradicate the limitations of the current tax structure and provide a single rate tax on supply of all goods and services.
