Before the implementation of Goods and Services Tax there were 23 types of tax prevailing. But now it is enough to pay only GST as single tax. There are 40 models in Goods and Services Tax and 120 countries follow GST. In India dual model is followed. So both and centre and state make use of it. It is a game changer in Indian economy.

We know that before implementation of GST Registration there were 23 types of taxes and they were imposed directly or indirectly. Direct tax means we directly pay tax as we get income. Indirect tax means the manufacture and delivery will include tax and we have to pay for it when we consume it. For things like fruits, vegetables, milk, LPG, cooking oil, mineral water, soda, toothpaste, soap and smart phone Goods and Services Tax will be reduced. Tea, TV, AC, Fridge, Chocolate and beauty products will have increased GST.

The cascading effect of tax is reduced because of Goods and Services Tax Registration . It can be explained as, when I manufacture a product, I give tax for 10% and I sell for the retailer. The retailer gives the value as Rs.12, and then you have to pay tax for the rs.12 also. So it is like paying tax over the tax. But in GST, you have to pay the tax only for the value added. So important aspect of Goods and Services Tax is reducing the cascading effect.
