Which product is not included in GST


As you are aware, Government of India is all set to implement the Goods & Service Tax (GST) with effect from July 1, 2017. The determination of applicable tax, inter-state or intra-state, will be dependent on the Goods and Tax Identification Number (GSTIN) of the relevant parties involved in the transaction. Compliance with GST regulations will be required to ensure the availability of the credit of GST invoiced by and paid to Hapag-Lloyd. Please note that it is important to share your GST number with Hapag-Lloyd.

You can follow the link to Hapag-Lloyd India’s website to update your GST number.

We will be unable to issue you a GST compliant invoice from July 1, if your GSTIN is not updated in our customer database. Please be advised that any customer who has not provided the relevant information will be recognized as an Unregistered Partner. This will lead to complications in claiming tax credits.

Please take note of the major changes in GST regime and take appropriate actions to avoid any complications later on:

  • Change of billing party is not permitted once the invoice is generated.
  • Invoice will be generated on the name on the Bill of Lading, unless contrary is advised in the Shipping Instruction for Exports and at least 3 days in advance of filing of IGM for Imports.
  • GST is also leviable on the excess payment; hence please make sure to make the payment as per the invoice. Refund of excess payment will be net of GST amount.
