# What is GST?

Using the GST Calculator from calculatoremi.com, anyone can compute the GST percentage that will be applied to their payment. The calculator takes your Taxable amount and multiplies it by the GST rate. GST is the amalgamation of CGST and SGST/UTGST. Both these elements contribute equally to making a GST rate.

## How do You Calculate a Loan Amount?

The loan payment calculator uses the interest rate you enter and breaks down your principal balance every month. Following that, you can get an amortized schedule of your loan. Using online calculators, you can estimate the amount and can get an amortized schedule.

Amortization refers to the process of repaying a debt on a regular, set schedule. During the initial few years of the repayment, interest is likely to make up the majority of your EMIs. For instance, if your monthly auto loan payment is ₹5000, your initial payment might be split into ₹1500 for principal and ₹3500 for interest.

**GST Calculation Formula:** GST = Taxable Amount x GST Rate

If you already have an amount that includes the GST, you can use the formula below to determine an amount that does not include the GST.

**GST Excluding Amount Formula:** GST including amount/(1+ GST rate/100)

For example, the amount, including GST, is Rs. 600, and the GST rate is 5%.

GST excluding amount = 600/(1+5/100) = 600/1.05 = 571.42

### GST percentage in India

The following is a list of GST rates applied to various and distinguished goods and services. These demonstrate the set rates by the government; you may check the amount by changing the variable in the GST Calculator.

- 0% (on necessity items like milk and wheat flour)
- 0.25% (rough diamonds)
- 3% (gold, silver, etc.)
- 5%
- 12%
- 18%
- 28%

Most products come into the 5%, 12%, and 18% categories. Furthermore, services fall into the 18% group. Certain products, including tobacco, cars, and industrial goods, are subject to a 28% GST. There is also a Cess that only applies to a small number of products, such as cars, tobacco, and pan masala. Moreover, some items and services are exempt from GST or have a GST rate of NIL. You may get a complete list of GST rates on various goods and categories on the government’s official portal.

#### GST Calculation for Reverse charge

As mentioned earlier, you can calculate the reverse charge as well using the calculator. Furthermore, the computation will be the same for a reverse charge as well. For instance, you may be compelled to pay GST on reverse charge at the rate of 18% because you purchased items from someone for Rs. 6,000. Thus, you must pay Rs. 1080 (6,000 x 18%) in GST on reverse charge. CGST and SGST of Rs. 540 each must be paid if they are to be assessed.

##### Loan Basics

A loan is a simple term that one can define as debt taken for a duration of time and will be repaid with a set interest on that loan amount. Therefore, understanding the elements that comprise a loan is essential. Look at the following points to learn more:

**Principal**

The total sum of the amount borrowed is known as the principle. This money is often given to you in one big sum, on which you must make monthly repayment payments.

**Interest**

The rate at which the amount owed grows is known as the interest rate. Furthermore, it includes any costs levied by the lender and is often represented as an annual percentage rate (APR).

**Term**

The tenure of time you have to repay your loan is known as the loan term. Your monthly payments will be cheaper as your loan’s term lengthens. This is generally computed in months or years.
