The term “Scrap” has not been defined in GST Laws. In GST regime, in order to be taxable, the waste and scrap does not have to pass the test of manufacture or mechanical process or marketability. It is admittedly as ‘supply’ in course of business.

While taxability of waste and scrap is no longer contentious, finding proper HSN (Harmonized System of Nomenclature) code is definitely a tedious task. The highest rate for scraps material is 18%. HSN code is a 6-digit code that categorizes 5000+ products. It is a uniform code which is accepted worldwide.
