The full form of SGST is State Goods and Service Tax Act 2017 (SGST) and SGST meaning is a tax levied on Intra State supplies of goods and services by the State government.
In order to know whether the supply of goods or services or both attracts SGST, it is essential for us to know if the supply is an intra-state or inter-state supply. SGST is applicable when Intra-state supply is a nature of supply where the supplier’s location and the recipient are in the same state. In this class of supply, the supplier collects both CGST and SGST. The value received under CGST is deposited with the Central government, whereas the tax collected under SGST is submitted with the state government.
Here are some of the significant SGST features :
1. SGST is applicable when gathered by the states on all goods and services provided for consideration.
2. The tax accumulated is deposited into the accounts of the particular state.
3. Each state has its separate SGST act under its State Goods and Service Tax Department. However, the basic features of the GST law for all the states, like the charges, valuation, taxable event, measure, classification, etc., would remain the same across the respective act of each state.
