What is the difference between GST and VAT?

For all intensive puposes VAT and GST are essentially the same type of indirect tax and work in virtually the same way.  Going on the pure defininition VAT is linked to tangible goods, whilst GST is linked to both tangible goods and services. However in most countries that apply VAT, especially European ones, VAT is applied to both goods and services, which would indicate little difference between the two. Yet  there is a big difference between Sales and Use Tax, used in places such as America, and VAT/GST.

Where there is  a requirement to split between goods and services this can easily be accommodated in your Oracle ERP System.
