FAQs

What is HSN code full form?

The full form of HSN means Harmonized System Nomenclature. This post explains about HSN codes classification into two-digit HSN code, 4 digit HSN codes, 6 digit HSN codes, and 8 digit HSN Code number. HSN code number is widely used in many countries to classify goods for taxation purpose, claiming benefits, etc

How HSN codes are unique?

HSN codes are unique for each product. Under HSN, all the goods and services are divided into 21 sections, 99 chapters. Under 99 chapters there are 1244 headings and 5244 subheadings. Each item which is used for trade or commercial use, it is identified with 8 digit code using the HSN code rules.

Who needs an HSN code?

Taxpayers having turnover exceeds Rs. 1.5 crore but up to 5.00 crore will be required to mention only two digits of HSN code. Taxpayers having turnover exceeds Rs 5.00 crore will be required to mention four digits of HSN code.

  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!

  3. Hey,

    What are the consequences of not mentioning or incorrectly mentioning the HSN Code?

  4. Hey @SonalYadav

    It is very crucial to mention the correct HSN/ SAC Code on the tax invoices and Form GSTR-1, barring to do so may attract a penalty of INR 50,000 (INR 25,000 each for CGST and SGST) for non-mentioning or incorrect mention of wrong HSN/ SAC Code under Section 125 of the CGST Act.

    Hope this helps!
