Top 10 GST Courses in India

GST or Goods and services tax is a value-added tax levied on domestically sold goods. It is paid by consumers then after businessmen remit it to the government. In July 2017 GST was launched in India to eliminate tax on tax, from manufacturing level to consumption level.

For example, if a manufacturing unit that makes shirts obtain raw material for Rs 100 which includes Rs 10 as tax. It adds value to the goods by 50 rupees, cost of the finished goods is 150 and tax will be @ 10% that will be 15 rupees. Under GST the tax that was paid earlier is applied and set off against this tax that is 15-10 i.e. 5 rupees.

In simple terms, we can say that GST tax is paid only once and as the value of goods increases tax is charged based on post value increased. In the earlier system tax was paid at every level thus increasing the cost of goods, GST has led to controlling inflation as the price of goods will be lowered and maintained.
