Indirect tax is a tax which is passed on by the taxpayer to the other person. This tax is paid indirectly to the Income Tax Department. These taxes are levied on goods and services. Such taxes are imposed by summating them with the price of the product or service that likely to push the price of the product up.

Indirect taxes contribute extensively to the government revenue and in recent years indirect tax collection has exceeded the direct tax incomes. With the integration of various indirect taxes in to GST, the collection is expected to go up further. India being a federal country, we have adopted dual GST with a four rate structure to meet the interests of various states. Given that the government is extremely proactive in addressing the transition challenges faced by trade and industry, a number of exemptions and concessions find place in the evolving GST system.
