Services Accounting Code (SAC) and GST Rates

Services Accounting Code (SAC) and GST Rates

As you may probably know by now that the government of India passed a new GST regulation under the GST Act, in which the rates on taxes for various goods and services have been revised and implemented in the country as a whole.

As per the GST Act, a new GST legislation has been enforced by the Government of India, which reviews and enforces the tax rates for different goods and services in the country as a whole. Each service offered is identified by a special SAC code that may be used by service providers in invoices or bills to offer their services to individuals and/or businesses.


Service accounting codes for each organisation help to identify the GST regime. A particular SAC that may be used by the suppliers in invoices for the services they deliver is denoted for each service. They will be able to bill the exact GST in the invoices by knowing the SAC list and related GST rates. To categorise different commodities, the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) issues codes under the Goods and Services Tax (GST) scheme. Such codes are referred to as the Accounting Code or SAC of Facilities. There is a separate SAC for each of the services under the GST regime. For the services provided by them in their invoices, service providers can use these SACs.


The following table lists the different SAC codes, as well as their related GST rates. On the basis of data updated on 10 November 2017, following the 23rd meeting of the GST Council, the list of codes and functional GST prices illustrated in the table below is given.. In this post, we will look at what the Services Accounting Code is, the inclusion of services in the list of Services Accounting Codes, and also hear about the updated GST rates charged on different services under the Government of India's GST regulations. Services Accounting Code (SAC) and GST Rates


List of SAC Code and GST Prices on Services


We will take a look at the SAC code list, under the jurisdiction of the Government of India, for different services that are taxable under the GST regulations provided by the GST Act. All taxable services provided by India are usually specified in the Services Accounting Codes (SAC). Therefore, in this SAC binary format, only a 6-digit numeric code is created. Any single operation is recalled with the help of this special SAC code scheme. This is also helpful , especially in order for individuals and businesses to be able to quickly provide invoices to their suppliers and/or customers while delivering services.


Five GST rate slabs are essentially classified into services delivered to both taxable persons and businesses under the GST regulations. In the slabs, the infrastructure levied on these five GST rate slabs decreased by 0%, 5%, 12%, 18%, and 28%, respectively, respectively. This will be addressed in-depth in the later sections of this article as we continue to learn more about the SAC code list and GST prices on services. It should be noted here that, for non-taxable services or services for which GST rates are not quoted, there is an 18 percent default GST rate in India. Below are the numerous SAC codes for the facilities included in the GST regulations, along with their related GST prices.
