  1. Hey @HarishMehta

    From 1st April 2021, Taxpayers with an aggregate Annual Turnover of more than INR 5 Crore during the financial Year 2020-2021 have to mandatorily mention 6 digits of the HSN Code in all tax invoices.

    Businesses with a turnover of up to INR 5 crore in the preceding financial year will be required to mandatorily furnish 4 digit HSN code on B2B invoices.

    Hope this helps!

  2. Hey @Dia_malhotra

    Let’s take an example of Cocoa powder to calculate the GST using the HSN code.

    Cocoa Powder per Kg = INR1,000.
    HSN Code = 18 05 00 00
    GST Rate = 18% (For Cocoa powder, not containing added sugar or sweetening matter)
    Therefore, GST = INR180

    Hope this helps!
