Harmonized System Code Classification India

HS code stands for a harmonized system code that was developed by WCO (World Customs Organization). This is a multipurpose global product nomenclature that describes the type of product i.e. shipped. Nowadays, customs officers must use this code to clear each and every product that crosses any global borders.

HS Code Classification India

It is very important for government officials to classify products being exported and imported in order to obtain appropriate taxes.

HS Classification is the final challenge products face before hitting the finish line in the process of shipping. These six to ten digits numbered harmonized system code serve 2 main roles and purposes aside from assisting products clear through customs. Those two major roles are:-

  • They recognize goods which are exported or imported through a country’s borders.
  • They categorize goods in a worldwide system use for customs clearance purposes.

This code is a need for exporters and importers because having the correct classification of product is a part of their legal responsibility.

HS Code for GST in India

Presently, many states in India have their own methods for categorizing products for tax rate determination. India is a member of WCO since 1971 and has been using HS codes since 1986 to categorize products for Central Excise and Customs. This code has 6 digits for a product (every two digits representing Chapter, heading, and subheading).

Under goods and services tax, a number of dealers will adopt 2, 4 or 8 digit HSN code for their products depending on their yearly turnover.

  • Those dealers who have a turnover of less than Rs 1.5 crores will not be needed to adopt HSN codes for their products.
  • Those dealers who have turnover between Rs 1.5 crores and Rs 5 crores shall be needed to adopt 2 digit HSN codes for their products.
  • Those dealers who have turnover Rs 5 crores and above shall be needed to adopt 4 digit HSN codes for their products.
