Goods categorized under HSN code, while Services are categorized under SAC Code. These GST rates will be sorted in 5 tax rate slabs i.e. 0%, 5%, 12%, 18% and 28% and are regulated by the Service Tax Department.

The format of SAC Code is classified in such a way that it can be identified within their category. The six digit number code of SAC holds the first two digit as “99” which determines that it is a Service based code. The next two digit i.e “54” determines that the nature of service is based on Construction Service And the last two digit determines the specific nature of the service based on installation.
The HSN code is based on a hierarchical structure where each digit represents a different category of the product or service. The first two digits represent the chapter, the next two digits represent the heading, and the last two digits represent the sub-heading.
