Mid Day - - CITY -

The GST on your restau­rant bill will now be 5 per cent, down from the 12 or 18 per cent ear­lier. The tax break-up will be 2.5 per cent State GST (SGST) and 2.5 per cent Cen­tral GST (CGST).

It is sup­posed to come into ef­fect from Novem­ber 15. Some es­tab­lish­ments under the AHAR um­brella may open a few hours late that day, as the soft­ware is be­ing con­fig­ured for the new rates.

Prices on the menu will re­main the same; it is a cus­tomer’s over­all bill that is com­ing down.

The 5 per cent GST is not ap­pli­ca­ble for restau­rants inside five-star ho­tels. Ho­tels with tar­iffs over R7,500 will be taxed at 18 per cent.
