What are the different types of GST?

The Goods and Service Tax is an indirect tax levied by the government of India on goods, services and wealth. It is a national tax that applies to almost all businesses established in India. Each business has to pay the appropriate amount of tax at the rate they choose to base on their net sales revenue or gross receipts. The GST is collected by the central government and then will be shared amongst various states after reaching a minimum threshold. Each state will receive a specific amount from this income. So far as business operations are concerned, there should be no change made to these systems as every single business is required to register under the GST regime before it opts for e –payments for its suppliers and customers respectively.
