Place of Supply Under GST Explained


    GST is a destination-based tax, meaning that the goods/services are taxed at the point of consumption rather than the point of origin. So that state would have the authority to collect GST where they are consumed. As a result, the place of supply is essential under GST because it is the focal point of all its requirements. The GST place of supply determines whether a transaction qualifies as intrastate or interstate and, as a result, how much SGST, CGST, and IGST will be levied. Therefore, cross-checking a supplier’s place using the GST search tool is recommended.
