The GST or Goods and Services Tax is the indirect tax which is imposed on the supply of goods and services in India. GST is a single taxation system in India that has replaced all the other indirect taxes in the country. It is a comprehensive tax imposed on the manufacturing, sale and consumption of goods and services all over the country. Every business entity either small or large, is required to have a GST Identification Number (GSTIN) to get registered under the GST policy regime. Whenever the business makes any sort of sales transaction within the Indian states (Inter-state), Integrated GST will be charged; whereas for any intra-state sales, Central GST and State GST will be charged.

#### GST Calculation

With the implementation of this unified taxation system, it has become possible for the taxpayers to know the imposed tax at different points for various goods and services under the GST regime.
