How GST Calculation Formula Work

The IGST calculation formula is given below.
IGST = (GST Rate * Purchase or Sales amount) / 100
As you can see, you need to know the GST rate of your product to be able to calculate the GST amount. Let’s take a GST calculation example.
Suppose that you are selling some products from Bihar to Rajasthan for which the GST rate is 10% and the sale amount is Rs. 1,000 then, the IGST will be calculated as follows.
IGST = (10 * 1000)/ 100 = 100Rs.
Refined cost of product = 1100Rs.
CGST and SGST are two different taxes that are levied on every intrastate (within state) transaction. The GST calculation formula to calculate CGST and SGST is as follows.
CGST = SGST = (GST Rate * Purchase or Sales amount) / (2 * 100)
Suppose that you are selling the same product within Rajasthan, then the tax amount will be calculated as follows.
CGST = SGST = (10 * 1000)/ 200 = 50
Refined cost of product = 1000+50+50 = 1100Rs.
