Government seeking to classify cryptocurrencies under GST law

The government is seeking to classify cryptocurrencies as a good or service under the GST statute, so that a tax may be applied on the whole value of transactions. Crypto exchange services are subject to an 18% Goods and Services Tax (GST) and are classified as financial services. GST officials believe that cryptos, by definition, are similar to lotteries, casinos, betting, gambling, and horse racing, all of which are subject to a 28% GST on the transaction value. Furthermore, in the case of gold, a 3% GST is paid on the transaction amount. “There is clarity needed in regard to levy of GST on cryptocurrencies and whether it has to be levied on the entire value. We are seeing whether cryptocurrencies can be classified as goods or services and also removing any doubt on whether it can be called an actionable claim,” an official told PTI. Another official stated that if GST is applied on the entire transaction of cryptocurrency, the rate might range between 0.1% and 1%.
