GST (Goods and Services Tax) is a tax on goods and services and a levy on the income of businesses.

GST has become more popular in recent years as a way to raise revenue to help finance public services.
Here’s a look at how it works.
What is GST?GST is a levy paid by goods and/or services to consumers.
The GST (GST on goods) is assessed at the retail level and is applied at a rate of 4.5 per cent.
It is collected at the point of sale.
GST is collected by taxing a consumer.
Consumers are able to deduct GST from their monthly bills.GST has become increasingly popular as a revenue raising measure to fund public services, as well as as as a tax relief for small businesses.
The income tax rate on goods is 25 per cent, and the tax on services is 16 per cent (plus GST on rental income).
The Goods and Services (Regulation and Licensing) Regulations 2012 are an integral part of GST.
They provide for GST to be collected at all times.
In addition to collecting GST, the regulations also provide for the establishment of an entity to collect and enforce GST, including collection of refunds.
The regulations also require a person to submit the relevant registration documents.
