## GST- Goods and Services Tax

GST or the Goods and Services Tax is an indirect tax that came into effect in India on the 1st of July, 2017. GST is levied on goods and services and has replaced other indirect taxes that were in effect before it came into use.

## How can you calculate GST with this tool?

With the free GST calculator, you can calculate the tax amount in three simple steps. The tool provides you with three fields that have to be filled, and it calculates GST automatically based on what you fill in.
• Enter the price of the goods or services in the Amount field.
• Enter the percentage of GST, or the slab that the product comes under, in the GST % field.
• Choose if the price that you entered is inclusive or exclusive of tax in the Tax field.
• If the price you've entered is inclusive of tax, the tool automatically calculates, and displays the original price of the goods or service after subtracting the GST.
• If the price you've entered is exclusive of tax, the tool automatically calculates, and displays the gross price after adding the GST.

## More on GST

GST was implemented mainly to bring about uniformity in tax collection. In the GST regime, tax is collected cumulatively at the end stage of production of goods or services. There are five slabs to collect GST that are 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%, and different goods and services fall under different tax slabs. Additionally, there are goods that do not attract any GST. Read about them here.

## There are four types of GST active in India. They are:

CGST - Central Goods and Services Tax, or CGST is collected by the central government for intra-state supply of goods and services and is governed by the CGST act. CGST is charged along with SGST with both rates usually equal.
SGST - State Goods and Services Tax, or SGST is collected by the state government for intra-state supply of goods and services and is governed by the SGST act. SGST is charged along with CGST with both rates usually equal.
IGST - Integrated Goods and Services Tax, or IGST is collected by the central government on inter-state supply of goods and services as well as imports. The central government collects the IGST and then distributes it among the respective states.
