Effect of GST on Gold Prices.

Goods and Services Tax has unified the earlier payable taxes like Value Added Tax (VAT), Customs duty, Central Excise duty, etc., and the whole indirect tax structure has been brought under one umbrella.

  • GST on Gold

GST on gold is levied when individuals opt for buying gold jewellery or bars. Individuals need to pay several taxes depending on the various processes involved in gold trading, manufacturing, and purchasing. To be precise, individuals need to pay GST of 5% on making charges, 10% on import duty and 3% on gold. However, the GST on making charges is a product of the new tax regime.

  • Impact of GST on Gold Prices

The new tax structure and implementation of several taxes have made gold expensive by 0.75%. Apart from the impact on gold prices, GST has stretched its effects on gold imports as well as across the organised and unorganised sectors, which are invariably linked with the increasing price of gold. 

Benefits of investing in gold

In its history of more than 3000 years, never has the value of gold dipped below zero. It has always remained a valuable commodity in the face of the Earth. Gold is a nice option to invest your funds in. Its value not only has remained relatively consistent throughout history, but the demand for it has also been steadily rising. If you are looking to get high returns on your investments, gold is the answer. People also move towards gold whenever recessions occur. In that case, it functions as a hedge against the fluctuations in the market. It is one of the most liquid assets in the world. It can be sold or placed as collateral to obtain funds in return. It is also very storage-friendly. Unlike dealing in the stock market, dealing in gold or identifying its value or quality doesn’t require much skill or expertise as the purity of the gold is also always certified by the seller.

What is QE and how does it affect Gold Prices?

QE or Quantitative Easing is a monetary policy that governments and central banks globally use to stimulate the economy. Typically, this policy comes into action when other monetary policies become ineffective.

Under QE, banks start printing and injecting money into the economy by purchasing assets. This method ultimately swells up the bank reserves and lowers the interest rates, which, in turn, increases economic activities. The recession in 2008 witnessed the application of this theory worldwide.

Central banks in major economies like the USA, Japan, and certain European countries started enforcing this system to encourage banks to lend. This economic policy shares a close relationship with the value of gold.

This relationship is inversely proportionate. It means when the injection of the paper currency increases in a system, the price of gold drops. Even though the presence of additional money in the system may seem like the gold price is increasing, the reality is quite the opposite.

When compared with other papers assets like stocks and bonds, the price of gold remains mostly similar or may go down in certain cases.

A concept to know here is Quantitative Easing Tapering. It means when central banks decide to stop printing currency, it creates a vacuum in the system. Therefore, less amount of money is chasing the same amount of gold. Consequently, the price of gold skyrockets owing to the laws of supply and demand.

Why is Gold considered a Precious Metal?

If there was another indicator to measure wealth in the world, barring currency, it would be gold. It is one of the nine noble metals, but gold’s value in the economy surpasses that of its counterparts. But the exploration and extraction of gold is a slow-moving, laborious process.

However, this metal still has a readily available market across the globe, which increases its liquidity, thereby making it an ideal asset. Owners of gold articles have the freedom to convert them into cash with ease.

Moreover, gold is a luxury good, which means that people purchase it in larger quantities when their income rises. Therefore, this yellow metal generally exhibits a steady increase due to high demand and inadequate supply, especially in a country like India. Most free-market economies of the world use gold reserves to hedge against inflation. As a result, this metal possesses an intrinsic value in the global economy as well.
