What is HSN? Full form of HSN Code? What is the use of HSN CODE?

HSN code is used for classifying the goods and has been mandated for suppliers to mention the code in the invoices upto certain digits based on their turnover. When preparing Tax Invoice for GST, the HSN number must be mentioned on GST invoice. All products under the same HSN code will have the same rate of GST.
