GST, IGST, CGST, Service Tax, VAT


There are distinguishing indirect taxes functional on services and goods by the Government of India and state government of India. Goods & Services Tax is planned to incorporate all these taxes into one tax with consistent ITC and charged on both goods and services. Accordingly excise duty, special additional duty, service tax, VAT to give some examples will get cancelled and will be included into GST. For this, Goods & Services Tax will have 3 sections – CGST (Central Goods & Services Tax), SGST (State Goods & Services Tax), and IGST (Integrated Goods and Services Tax). The focal duties like extract obligation will be subsumed into CGST and state charges like VAT into SGST. Financial service industry, specifically financial institutions like Banks and NBFCs are the backbone of any economy. They are the drivers of the economy and contribute roughly 6% of the roundabout charges. Accordingly they are a huge player and an unfavourable effect on the segment impacts the economy. Further, Banks presently work just in the service area and are secured by Service Tax @ 12.36% right now. Going ahead with GST (Goods & Services Tax), they should pay approx. 27% GST. This paper examined information gathered from inquires about articles and data for worldwide practices for comparative issues and information gathered through meeting and poll from individuals in the field. In view of this investigation, the paper goes ahead to propose changes or necessities that GST should address from a financial service industry perspective.
