GST effect on our delivery:

As our nation welcomes the ‘One Nation, One Tax’’ initiative, effective from July 1st 2017, we at Way2door also welcome this change by making our processes fully compliant with GST. We guarantee you that we still will get you the lowest prices on all your items. Moreover, your orders will be fulfilled as usual and in line with the GST guidelines. What are the changes you can expect at our end? - At the delivery, our field executive will hand over a delivery statement, listing down all the items you have ordered. - Since the government has exempted certain goods from GST, you will receive invoices for them separately. Which means that your order will now be broken down into 3 components: A Delivery Statement for you to check all the items you’ve ordered A Tax Invoice showing all the items that have been taxed A Bill of Supply
