What is HSN?

HSN stands for “Harmonized System of Nomenclature.”  It is a standardized numerical method of classifying traded products. It is used by customs authorities worldwide to identify products when assessing duties and taxes and for gathering statistics. 

Almost all goods in India are classified using the HSN classification code, which facilitates the use of HSN numbers for calculating the Goods and Service Tax (GST). More details about GST in the Indian context can be found here, An Indian official list of HSN codes and applicable GST tax for each category of Products and Services regulated by the Indian Government can be found here.
