Finance Minister Arun Jaitley unveils ‘GST Rates Finder’ mobile app


In a bid to ensure better understanding of the Goods and Services Tax (GST), Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has launched a ‘GST Rates Finder’ mobile app.

This app will be of great assistance to those who are liable to pay GST. The app will enable the users to search for different tax rates.

Users can download the mobile app from Google Playstore, tweeted IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. “Mobile app ‘GST Rates Finder’ is available on the android platform and will soon be available on iOS platform,” Finance Ministry said in a tweet.

The mobile app can be downloaded on any smartphone and can also work in offline mode as well, Finance Ministry informed. “Through this app, the user can determine GST rate for a good or a service by entering the name or chapter heading of the commodity or service,” it further said.

“In addition to the ‘GST Rates Finder’ mobile app, users can also log on to Central Board of Excise and Customs website to know different rates of GST as CBEC “has also provided a GST rate finder on its portal to help taxpayers know applicable GST rate on their supplies”, the ministry added.

“The search can be made based on the description of goods or services or HSN Chapter or section or heading number,” it said.
