What is an HSN code?
It is an internationally accepted coding system wherein each product is classified into different section based on its nature and usage. Currently, in India it is used under Excise, Customs and VAT laws. Once the transition to GST happens, it has been proposed that the same will be used for classification of goods/services.
Why is it important to us.?
When all the traded goods and services are recognized in a globally accepted codification framework, it reduces the possibilities of misinterpretation. The HSN code tagged to a particular good/service will determine the tax rate applicable. Also, while GST filing returns, this HSN code has to be provided.
If you are a merchant partner, you should provide this HSN mapping for all your items listed with us for our partnership to continue post GST implementation.
