The Article Covers Rate Chart of Goods and Services Tax (GST) applicable on 35 specifically mentioned services and on all other services with availability of Input Tax Credit and List of Services Which are Exempt from Goods and Services Tax.

Krishan Arora, Partner, Grant Thornton India LLP on GST rates for services sector said that Four rate structure for services has been announced in line with goods depending upon the nature, importance, consumer base and existing tax structure. Barring fee essential services which have been kept at 5%, retention of 18% standard rate for most services falling at 15% today was expected thus making such services a bit costlier for end consumers given the overall regime for service providers under GST. While grandfathering of most of the existing service exemptions like education, Healthcare etc is a welcome move for these sectors, the same could also result in possible increase in cost of such services due to increase in overall tax structure on procurements. Luxury service category of 28% for services such as five star hotel, cinema etc could also make such services slightly costlier.”
