HSN Code List: HSN stands for Harmonized System for Nomenclature. HSN was established and industrialized by the World Customs Organization (WCO) in 1988. GST HSN code states more than 5000 goods and is primarily practiced by more than 150 countries. This 6 digit HSN Code can be utilized to classify more than 5 thousand commodities and is further applied for tax objectives classification. The customs and central excise attached two more digits later to advance HSN Code search for more reliable differentiation.

Earlier, it was mandatory to have only in the GST invoice for taxpayers with a turnover of more than 5 crores. But now, the HSN code for GST is compulsory for all tax invoices.
