SAC code for funeral, cremation and undertaking services

GST Rates for services are based on the classification system developed by Service Tax department in India. The code allotted to a service is called Service Accounting Code or SAC code. Same way the GST Rates for goods are based on Hamonised System of Nomenclature and are called HSN Codes popularly. HSN code means a multipurpose international product nomenclature developed by World Customs Organisation(WCO).

Before implementation of GST in India, states in India had their own systems of classifying goods and services for determination of tax rates. However with introduction of Goods and Service Tax, uniform classification was introduced. All the states have now moved to HSN for classification of goods and SAC system for classification of services under GST regime.
