GST was implemented in India on the 1st of July 2017, which made the taxation system easier in comparison to before.
You have to file the GST returns monthly within the due date. If you fail to do so, it will result in a penalty while filing the GST, which makes it necessary to remember and file it within the deadline.
Good and Services Tax
It is an indirect tax which has replaced many indirect taxes in India such as the excise duty, VAT, services tax, etc. It is levied on the supply of goods and services. However, petroleum products, alcoholic drinks and electricity are not taxed under GST, they are imposed separately by state governments. The Goods and Services Tax has made it easier to track all the records of transactions in the market unifying it in a single taxation system making it transparent for all. The Goods and Services tax has been divided into five different slabs of 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%.
