GST on Gold - Here's All You Need to Know
- Rates- Under GST, there is a 3 percent charge on gold. If there's additional work on the gold then it goes to 5 percent. If you are exchanging old gold with new, the GST rate would be adjusted towards your purchase.
- Tax on making of jewelry- If you are making changes to old jewelry or simply getting a new one made, the GST rate for that is 5 percent, and this also includes polishing.
- Resale- If you are selling old gold, it will not have any tax on it if you use that money to buy new gold jewelry. This means, you need to buy new gold in exchange of old to avoid taxes. Before GST, there was a 3 percent charge on selling old gold even if you were buying new gold along with it.
- Exemption- Avoiding taxes is not as easy, in case of buying gold, as it seems. If you are buying gold from an unregistered supplier, you will be paying taxes on the same under reverse charge mechanism. Provisions for the same have been put in place to ensure illegal trading gold can be prevented.
This is all you need to understand about the impact of GST on Gold. Gold is one of the most solid investments of all time. It has a high liquidity, is a sign of wealth and one of the best gifts that can be given to a loved one.
