    Just read an article which states that we have to 18% GST on earnings from foreign countries . e.g. Adsense. and under this case we are not qualified for rs 20 lakhs limit.

    I am not earning that much but I found no clarity.
    Now I have to pay income tax 20% slab + 18% GST ? ??

    All those who have access to CA's , any HELP? what are you doing?

    GST is not applicable on your earnings from adsense or any other affiliate income. You need to understand it's for goods & services. You adsense or affiliate income is only taxable under relevant income tax slab. You are neither selling goods nor offering any service.
    That should clear your doubts.

    Software consulting is the category I use on pp. I think i can't choose multiple categories I think. Don't remember that created my pp few years back.

    All my affiliate earnings mostly they pay in my bank account.

    But I get your point, will talk to my ca about this.

    Consulting is also a service.

    How you're receiving all affiliate income in Banks? Indian Companies?
    If we don't cross the threshold limit, then its fine I suppose.

    It would be great if we could talk in PM or skype.

    Just an update guys I was wrong earlier I think and it does not look good.

    Just read an article that explains now bloggers & income from blogging comes under GST & 18% is what is to be paid.

    https://www.hubco.in/articles/how-g...ia-impact-of-gst-registration-on-blogging/amp

    Will get back once I talk to my CA, with more info regarding this but at the moment it looks GST registration is mandatory for bloggers also.

    Are you really blogging?

    I am earning mainly through affiliate marketing, now does that make me register for GST?

    I can't answer your question at this time. I have read few articles regarding this now after this thread was opened.
    I was assuming GST is not for bloggers & affiliate income earners. But now I am myself confused.

    I can't take these online articles to be true as someone writes something & other person writes completely different. GST is very complicated so better to contact a CA or professional from that field who knows facts.

    I am going to talk in detail with CA not sure but 18% does not look good to me :(

    Hi all,

    Income made from Google AdSense is exempted from GST, so there are no need to pay any gst on adsense income but of If you’re using AdX ads, then you will have to pay 18% GST if your AdX supplier is located in India.

    I found this article as precise and specific where we can find solution to the applicability of GST on Indian Freelancers.
    gst.caknowledge.com/gst-google-adsense

    The article has emphasised on 2 important points:-:

    ZERO Rated Supply
    Export of Service
    I think this shall be helpful in understanding the entire logic for GST for freelancers.
