What is C form?

What is c form

We also call C form as CST which means Central Sales Tax. This is a business term. People who do business activity must know about CST.

If you do not know about CST, let me first tell you – “Whenever we purchase goods, we have to pay tax on it, it is called CST.”
We have to pay 5% CST on the goods purchased.

Example: Suppose you have purchased goods worth Rs 1 Lakh, on which you have given 5% CST (Central Sales Tax) to the seller, which will be deposited in the sales tax department.

But if we want, we can avoid giving this 5% amount and instead of that we can pay some amount as CST only.

For this, we have to give them a form called C form. If we give them the C form, then we have to pay only 2% CST along with our Goods Amount.

Example: If there is a goods of 1 lakh rs/- then we have to give only 2000 rs/- as CST. That is, when we pay 102000 rs/- to the seller, only then will he release our goods.
