FAQs

Is GST Rate applicable on vegetables?

All vegetables fall under Chapter 8 of the HSN Code. Though GST is levied in 5 different slabs, all vegetables are taxed only at NIL and 5% rate. Hence, no vegetable would attract a GST of more than 5%.

Who needs a 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.

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.

GST Portal: Search HSN/SAC Tax Rates

Goods under GST are classified by the Harmonized System of Nomenclature (HSN) code. There are various types of goods and services. A common rate of tax is not applicable to all of them. Thus, they are classified into smaller groups and a specific GST rate is applied to the groups. Services are classified on the basis of the Service Accounting Code (SAC).

An individual can search the tax rate associated with a specific HSN/SAC code on the GST Portal. It isn’t necessary for the individual to be a registered user at the GST Portal.

FAQs

Is HSN Code is mandatory for all the dealers?

HSN codes shall not be used mandatorily in the following cases:
1. Dealers who have an annual turnover of less than INR 1.5 Crores
2. Dealers registered under the Composition Scheme of GST are exempted from the usage of HSN Codes

Why are HSN Codes important at the time of filing GST returns?

Since GST returns are completely automated, it will be hard for the dealers to upload the description of the products being supplied. Hence, HSN Codes shall be automatically picked up from the registration details of the dealer and will reduce the efforts thereby. Dealers have to be careful in choosing the correct HSN/SAC code while migrating to GST or making a fresh registration.
