About GST

Online GST Payment is a simple process to pay your GST returns on time.

GST stands for Goods and Service Tax is an indirect tax used on the supply of goods and services in India. It is also known as the consumption tax. It covers almost all indirect taxes except a few state taxes. It is a multistage tax as it covers every step of the production process. Though it is a consumption tax, all the other stages of taxes are refunded back to all parties except the final consumer product tax. The final consumer product tax is meant to be collected by the means of consumption. Alcoholic drinks, electricity and petroleum products tax are not covered under GST and are generally taxed by state governments individually.

The GST tax came into force on 1 July 2017. It was implemented by the One Hundred and First Amendment of the Constitution of India by the Indian Government. The GST tax then replaced other multiple taxes used by the central and state governments.
