The rates of GST (CGST+SGST/UTGST) include Nil, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. These rates will apply to IGST also. CGST and SGST rate is expected to be same. IGST is expected to be equal to double the CGST rate. Thus if CGST and SGST is same, the IGST rate will be equal to the rate of SGST plus CGST.

For Example:- Rajesh, a dealer in Maharashtra sold goods to Anand in Maharashtra worth INR 10,000. The GST rate is 18% comprising of CGST rate of 9% and SGST rate of 9%, in such case the dealer collects INR 1800 and INR 900 will go to the central government and INR 900 will go to the Maharashtra government.

Again, if Rajesh sells goods to dealer in Delhi worth INR 10,000, this being inter- state, the dealer will charge IGST at the rate of 18% and the amount collected INR 1800 will go the central government and will later be apportioned between the union and the states on the recommendation of the GST Council.

How to Deal After Changes in GST rate of goods

The CBEC vide Notification No. 41/2017-Central Tax (Rate) dated 14th November 2017 effective from 15th November 2017 reduced GST rates on goods from 28% to 18% on goods falling in 178 headings at 4-digit level (including 4 tariff heading that are partially pruned). After these changes, only 50 items will attract GST rate of 28%

Q- How do we determine the rate of tax in case, if there is change in the tax rates?

Ans. Three important events need to be considered – Date of raising invoice, receipt of payment and completion of supply. If any of the two events occur before the change in rate of tax, then the old rate will apply, else the new rate will apply.

Illustration – Rate of GST on Supply made on or after November 15, 2017 reduced from say 28% to 18% then the tax to be applied on supplies will be as under :

  • Before– Event occurred before November 15, 2017
  • After– Event occurred on or after November 15, 2017
Supply Provided Invoice issued Payment received GST Rate
Before After After 18%
Before Before After 28%
Before After Before 28%
After Before After 18%
After Before Before 28%
After After Before 18%

It may be noted that date of receipt of payment shall be the date of credit in the bank account if such credit in the bank
