Applications of HSN/SAC Codes under GST System in India

India was already using HSN coding system in the previous Central Excise regime. The GST tax system in India is also based on HSN coding where unique HSN/SAC codes will be required to file tax under this mechanism.
Indian manufacturers and dealers will have to follow a predefined HSN structure.
  • Businesses with annual turnover less than Rs. 1.5 crores need not use HSN codes for their goods.
  • Those with turnover from 1.5 crores to 5 crores shall follow two-digit HSN codes for their products.
  • Businesses with turnover more than 5 crores shall be using four-digit HSN codes.
  • Eight-digit HSN codes will be applicable for all imports and exports.
  • Any online HSN code finder tool can be used to check HSN/SAC codes for any of your commodities.
  • Small businesses with GST composition scheme will not need to use HSN codes for their products.
  • HSN will be mentioned in the supply-invoice.
Services will be identified by the same old Services Accounting Codes (SAC).
Any taxpayer who is involved in the selling of goods and services in India or abroad needs to specify the relevant HSN codes for all their commodities. While filling the tax returns, GST rate will apply automatically based on the unique HSN code of a particular item. The turnover of the previous financial year will be used to decide the HSN structure applicable for a particular taxpayer.
For taxpayers with annual turnover between Rs.1.5 crores and 5 crores in the previous financial year, use of 2-digit HSN codes is an optional exercise for the first year of GST implementation in India. From the second year, it will be mandatory for all such taxpayers to mention 2-digit chapter HSN codes for all their goods.
Use of HSN coding system makes GST an internationally compatible tax mechanism.
