In July 2017 the law on collecting the Goods and Service Tax (GST) came into force in India. GST is levied on goods and services on each stage of the supply chain from the manufacturer to the direct consumer. If you run your ecommerce business for the Indian market, it is compulsory for Magento 2 stores to comply with the GST regulations. GST tax rules are very complex, so it takes much time and effort to implement the GST system on an online store.
Luckily, there is an appropriate third-party tool designed to simplify the management of taxes related to GST – the Magedelight GST extension for Magento 2. The module automates the calculation of GST taxes and applies them to the products and services you offer on your website based on the configured rules. This way, the Magedelight extension helps merchants to quickly set applicable GST tax rates and other options and improves the customer checkout experience on their stores.
In this post, we explore the functionality of the Magento 2 Indian Goods & Services Tax module and look at how it works in the backend and frontend.
