Indian Goods and Service Tax – Addendum to TA FAQs

Published on: Jul 11 2017 by Stuart Oxby

On 1st July the new Indian Goods and Services tax (GST) was introduced.

This new Indian GST tax is applicable to all goods & services sold in India, including all flights departing from India and hotels, cars or insurance booked in India, regardless of whether the point-of-sale is in India.

The new tax process will be different depending on whether you are selling to a corporate traveller (paid for by a business registered for GST, hence a business-to-business or B2B transaction) or a leisure traveller (a “business-to-consumer” or “B2C” transaction).

The Indian government will apply two different percentages when it comes to air travel (applying to both domestic and international travel):
• 5% for air travel in economy class
• 12% for air travel in a premium class

Several points are still pending clarification by the Indian government. Once these points have been clarified and we have received the specifications from IATA, we will inform you of any any additional changes that may be applicable.
