What is an HSN code?

HSN stands for “Harmonized System of Nomenclature” which was developed by the World Customs Organisation (WCO) with the vision of classifying goods all over the World in a systematic manner. HSN contains a six-digit uniform code that classifies 5,000+ products and is accepted worldwide.

It clears the confusion and helps in domestic and international trade between the countries. More than 20,000 goods are traded using HSN codes across the world between countries. More than 90% of world trade is done by WCO using the revised HSN codes. India is also included in the community by accepting the HSN codes procedure.

Who needs to use the HSN Code in India?

The uses of HSN codes in India are mainly for dealers and trades. They should use 2 digits, 4 digits, and 8 digits HSN codes for trading in India or outside India depending upon the following criteria as per rules and notifications-

  1. If the business turnover is less than Rs.1.5 crores then there is no need for using the HSN codes.
  2. and if the business turnover is between Rs.1.5 Crs to Rs. 5 Crs then, they must use 2-digit HSN codes for the business trades.
  3. If the business turnover is above Rs.5 Crs then, they must use 4-digit HSN codes for the business.
  4. In the case of Import and export dealings and international trades, one must adopt 8-digit HSN codes for business trades.

Under the HSN module the classification of the goods into different

21 Sections then 99 chapters then 1244 headings after that 5244 subheadings for example:

What are the GST tax rates for all products?

Goods and Services Tax (GST) is single taxation, but due to the vast number of commodities and services, they are placed under different GST slabs or different GST tax rates. And the GST tax rates for all products covered under the list of HSN Code are shown below-

  1. NIL: Under this tax slab 0% tax is levied on the goods or services.
  2. .25%: Under this tax slab .25% tax is levied on the goods or services.
  3. 3 %: Under this tax slab 3% tax is levied on the goods and services.

  7. 28%: Under this tax slab 28% tax is levied on the goods and services.

Why are HSN Codes important at the time of filing GST returns?

Since GST returns are completely automated, it will be hard for the dealers to upload the description of the products being supplied. Hence, HSN Codes shall be automatically picked up from the registration details of the dealer and will reduce the efforts thereby. Dealers have to be careful in choosing the correct HSN/SAC code while migrating to GST or making a fresh registration.

What is the Purpose of using the list of HSN CODE in India?

Acceptance of HSN will bring India to par with the rest of the countries of the world that are following the Harmonized System of Nomenclature after the introduction of GST. The HSN code will make GST systematic and globally accepted.
It will lead to the harmonization of customs and trade procedures, thereby minimizing the costs related to international trade. On entering the HSN codes, the system will automatically pick up the related tax rates of the commodities under the GST regime, thus simplifying the trade procedures. Hence, it is important to mention the correct HSN codes during enrollment or registration under GST.

Is HSN Code mandatory for all dealers or traders?
