Overview Direct & Indirect Tax

Taxation An Overview

In India, our tax structure is divided into two parts Direct Tax and Indirect Tax. It is very crucial to understand the overview of Direct and Indirect Tax. While direct taxes are levied on incomes earned by individuals and corporate entities, the burden to pay taxes is on the taxpayers themselves. On the other hand, indirect taxes are imposed on the sale of goods and provision of services where the burden to collect and deposit taxes is on the sellers instead of the taxpayer directly. However, indirect taxes are borne by the ultimate consumers of goods or services.

Central Governments and State Governments levy significant Taxes in our country. However, Local Authorities such as Municipality and Local governments have also been given some powers for levy and collection of taxes and charges in their jurisdictions.

Over the last few years, the Central and many State Governments have undertaken many reforms in policy formulation and implementations for the objective of Ease of doing business and regular efforts on simplification of processes towards great predictability, transparency and automation. Introduction of GST is one of such reforms to eliminate the cascading effect of taxes and to overcome the complexities in multiple indirect tax regimes in India.
